Doing an auto to manual swap? One of the biggest hurdles is the converting the tunnel over to the OEM manual tunnel. Not anymore... This tunnel cover allows for a clean installation, and will seal your IS300 / IS200 / Altezza up from outside elements, heat, exhaust gas, etc.
This tunnel conversion cover was created specifically for the Lexus IS300 auto to manual conversions to fit the new Magnum-F transmission. It was designed with a dual pattern to fit both T56 swaps and w58/w55 or v160 and CD009 as well.
This cover was designed and fabricated in house as a much easier solution to swapping out the entire manual tunnel swap. This can be done with the dash still in the car! This method saves a ton of work over doing the manual tunnel swap, and leaves the car with a clean, airtight tunnel.
The kit includes the fabricated cover, high quality rubber shift boot, chrome securing ring, and template to use when cutting the tunnel.
This is a bolt in kit, no welding is required. It does of course require cutting out the tunnel to properly allow the fitment of the billet shifter handle. Cutting the auto tunnel is required with any manual transmission conversion, as the auto hole sits too far back.
To install, you will need to trim about 1.5” of the factory tunnel out at the front side of the factory auto hole. See pics!
