W58 help.

Postby DavidCurtis » Fri Jan 11, 2013 12:21 pm

I need help doing a W58 swap.

The car is a dedicated drift ae86 with a 4agze, using the 4age clutch and flywheel setup. Well I want a stronger tranny.
I have the w58, a t50, supra drive shaft, and some other bits and pieces
I have a guy who will cut the t50&w58 bellhousings and reweld them for me. Or should I just buy an adapter plate or a custom bellhousing?

So, what do I need? I figure I need a custom clutch, what else?

Thanks in advance!!! :D

when i was going to do that setup, i was going to get the nite parts bellhousing, custom clutch kit and custom drive shaft. also was going to get my rear axles upgraded from weir performance.

illegal garage was on the previous forum,i hope he posts a new thread again here.
Im also waiting to buy a clutch.
if i remember correct for niteparts this is his email brendan@niteparts.co.nz
But you could also like you said use the T50 and w58 bellhousing and weld them together if youre good enough,will save you money

I can confirm that an automatic AE86 SR5 transmission crossmember will work perfectly with the W58 rubber mount. Position is great. The shifter location will differ from W5x transmission, but a simple Google search will help you figure out which one is best suited for your needs.
