I believe you can swap just the bellhousing, but they have different gear ratios too. The 4cyl one is probably not as strong, having deeper gears. the TK's hold up reasonably well tho, so unless you plan to murder it, it will likely live. Measure the bellhousings to be sure about relative depth, I *think* they have the same input spline, but check a clutch catalog (such as http:www.centerforce.com ) to be sure.Originally posted by ANGER ranger w\ attitude:
Will a 2.8 bolt into a 2.3's old home? It has a toyo kogyo 4spd. I'm wondering about bellhousing, input shaft and so on.Thanx
Well, my TK 5spd didn't puke behind the 2.3 turbo with over 200 HP. I was not gentle with it. Treat it like you want it to live, and it should. I'd test fit everything before jumping in with both feet tho, as what (fittment) I've related IS jsut heresay, even tho I've heard it repeatedly.Originally posted by RandyRanger:
so minimal problems with the bellhousing and wiring?...im doing the same conversion, i have access to the bellhousing from the 2.8...and im sure ill find the ignition?..., you say as long as i dont beat it the toyo will hold?....how far would you consider murdering?
Which have substantially less torque than the average sewing machine. A Heavy 4x4 is a completely different barrel of monkeys.Originally posted by Blue coyote:
Keep in mind that the T/K was also used in the Turbo RX-7's
