I'll add in another piece of the puzzle.




I'm thinking you just enlarge the hole and then bolt this cover on to close the gap negating the need for hammering on the trans tunnel and spacering.

we'll see in a couple weeks when all my parts finally arrive.

^^That's the top of the transmission tunnel. It is spot welded to the body of the car. I was originally planning on doing that but I ended up getting an adapter plate (Thanks Brandon!) and drilled a hole for the transmission vent. The plate covers everything.

I know you talked to me about doing the tunnel. Is the dash going to be removed for installing this?

Were you able to replace the TRAC/SNOW switch?

Brandon,
I'm not sure if the dash will have to come out, but if so, I will let you guys know.

Right now I'm just trying to order my driveshaft and waiting on my clutch/flywheel to show up.

Hopefully it goes smoothly.
Did anyone have any other inconveniences when doing their swap? I'm just going with a W55 on a 02 Sportcross.

The hardest part i thought was getting the w55 in, seems like you need to get as much angle on the engine as possible to do it. At least that was my experience doing it on the ground. seems like that manual transmision tunnel goes pretty deep in the dash area.

I was online and saw a brochure talking about the sportcross and the manual release of 2002. And i talked about this part, and said that it reduced tension and reduced belt whine. I tried to find it again but so far i have not. I would consider doing it myself, if i didn't have different plans for the future. but since it seems your going all out, you should give it a shot. what are part cost for the change? how many miles do you have on your car? it might be a good thing to do when you do your timing belt. Im pretty sure these parts were replaced when i did mine.

I'm not quite clear on what you're referring to as the "manual release" Are you talking about the tensioner? I unfortunately did buy the manual trans tensioner and all associated hardware. It seems from other threads that it was an unnecessary purchase.

I'm probably about $2500 deep with a driveshaft still to be ordered.
Picked up:
W55 trans
competition clutch and flywheel from THmotorsports
trans tunnel hardware and other fasteners
clutch master, all the other stuff you posted
MT steering wheel
MT cluster
MT harness
MT ECU
etc

So far I've got 68k on the odometer, along with the MT cluster that I just got back from being adjusted to match my current mileage.

Timing belt and water pump was just done at 65k along with vvti cam gear/seal

As soon as I sort out the retarded mission to obtain drive shaft length, I will be ordering up an aluminum driveshaft from the driveshaft shop.

As far as i can tell, I'm at 53 1/8" for the length and 21 splines. Since no one has posted lengths, I'm in the dark as far as I know for ordering a drive shaft. I guess I'll just cross my fingers when it gets here.

and Migs, my Sportcross is Intensa Blue also :p

zensokuryoku,

I think TokenSolutions sells aluminum and steel 1 piece driveshafts for the IS300. Try giving them a call.

Thanks for the heads up. I will definitely give them a call. just an FYI for everyone, I called the driveshaft shop and apparently 53 1/8" with 21 splines is what they used to offer as an off the shelf item. However, I guess they had discrepancies with various cars so they require people to verify their own measurements.

Sportcross and manual release refers updates from 2001 when they did not have a manual transmission is300 or sportcross. I think that's pretty good pricing since your all the way in Hawaii and all. I'm pretty close to that amount, and I picked up all my stuff locally. Even though your not quite there on miles I would do the timing belt and associated parts now, just because your already got the car all torn apart anyway, but that just me.

Ah, the timing belt and water pump was just changed 3k miles ago. I wouldn't have to replace them again I'm assuming?

I guess I'll probably have to take the dash out after looking at that trans cover piece. I suppose this is an excuse to clean it and get rid of all that gummy peeling film.
