    Hence the question mark

    Throwing it out there as a possibility ?

    Having worked in an automatic transmission shop has made me realise I would love to specialise in manuals/diffs.

    Ninja Edit : Ofcourse it's possible, that's why I suggested it

    hey man

    i dont have a water temp gauge that shows me in exact degrees but, when everything was running well, the factory gauge goes up to the usual spot it did with the 3S and sits there without moving even slightly

    im using a 5S-FE thermostat btw

    Paul woods has done some experimenting and the ZZW30 factory helical LSD fits into the S54 box. IF your able to locate a second hand spyder box, it might be a cheap option.

    Or mini spool !

    you wouldnt happen to have a spare rear gearbox mount from the MR2 would ya....

    im going ahead with e153 gearbox conversion in the celica and need another mount to bolt to gearbox... on the rear of engine.... so driveshaft side of box.... front one i can use 184 mount...... top of gearbox/passenger side is a gt4 mount..... but the rear one i believe is a MR2 mount......
