I do mean huge with tons and tons of great info that has been sucessfully tested.  Most even have pics.  Granted it's not Starquest specific but opens up tons of new options for engine and transmission swaps.

Yeah, I found that a few months ago. It's a great resource.

After reading through it I concocted a plan to swap an SRT-4 motor into a 5-spd Jeep Liberty!  :wink:

This makes for a lot of info to go over but does this mean that the R154/narrowblock adapter will also work with;

Jeep/Dodge AX15 5-speed
Jeep NV3550 5-speed
Jeep NV1500
Toyota R150F, R151F & R155F
Isuzu AR5
Pontiac Solstice\Saturn Sky\Chevy Colorado\ GMC Canyon MA5

And do we want to use any of those transmissions?  In particular, itd be nice if they were smaller than the R154, so as to more easily fit into the transmission tunnel.

I am working out the R 154 options,the problem with the R 154, its geared too high, here is the comparisions

        1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
R150 - 3.83 2.062 1.436 1.00 0.838
R151 - 4.31 3.32 1.52 1.00 0.83
R154 - 3.25 1.95 1.30 1.00 0.75
Starion (KM132-M-CNL) 3.369:1 2.035:1 1.360:1 1:1 .856:1  


The R 150's 2wd are found on all the toyota V 6 trucks pre 86
The R 151 was used on the turbo 4 cyl Toyota truck and 86-87 and v-6 toyota trucks after 87
they sell for about 3-500 bucks on car-part.com and there are plenty of them

The input shafts are shorter then the R 154, and they are different before and after 86, but all I have to do is change how the bellhousing is built and then cut the back plate for wwhich ever trans is ordered


the problem is in the Starions, they have the torque tube set up in the rear end with limited selection of axle ratio's available

the other problem is cost and availablity of the R 154

This all came about because I am building the wide block R 154, option and I been watching the cost of the transmissions . Once you pay $800.00 for a trans and $425.00 for a clutch, its hard to justify the adaptor

The 96 and up input shaft for the R 150 and R 151 should be the same as the R 154 ( 7.5 I have to make sure of that) and the input shaft of pre 96 should be the same as the W 55's ( 6.5)
the R 151 & 150 should be good up to 450 hp ( from what I can read)
the pre 96 trans sells for $300.00 bucks all day long on car-part.com and all you need is a Toyota disc with the OEM Mits pressure plate and I think it would use the W 55 throw out bearing collar

what I am saying is , I can either shorten or lengthen the bellhousing within a 1 inch range and drop the cost of the swap while increasing the gear ratio selection
