RA60 Manual Conversion

Postby hally15 » Mon Sep 07, 2015 5:36 pm

As title suggests wanting to do a manual swap from my auto in my RA60.
Have been looking into in a bit and wanting to get some opinions?

I have the clutch pedal box from my AW11 and am not to sure if it would fit, it has 1 mounting hole and the few pictures I have found online have 2. anyone got photos of one?

Also what gearbox, from what I can tell w57 or w58 would be best, either or, or is one better?

Any ideas would be great :D

Get a pedal box from a RA60/65 or possibly MA70.
There should be one in a upullit somewhere.
Adapting one from a AW11 im sure wont be feasible.

W58 is the pick of the bunch, but you may have some trouble finding one, and it's not needed if you're sticking with stock engine power (or close to it).

Few more questions about doing this swap.
So do I need a manual gearbox cross member? or is the auto box one fine?
Also do I need a new manual speedo cable? or is the auto one fine?
Other then that I am fairly confident with doing the swap

Cheers :)

i'm sure you'll need a different x-member. if you find a 5 speed manual from a ra6x celica, it'll be a W57 which is plenty strong enough
