are there any differences between the w58 on my mkii and the w58 on the na mkiii supras? i just figured the newer one may be upgraded a bit. thanks for the info.
I'm not sure this is correct. I'm fairly certain the gearing inside the transmissions are the same. Wish I had some of my old car mags handy to verify.......I use MKIII w-58s in several of my cars - just as SilverMK2 said, they really are the same, all the differences are minor; shifter sits back about 2" and it will have an ABS sensor on the top if the car came w/ it. I cant remember if I needed to change the reverse light plug but thats not a big deal either way. There is a slight difference in the gearing as well, the MKIII having closer/ quicker gearing. MKIII also uses a cast clutch fork w/ a slightly different throw out bearing - but either can be used. Lastly, I cant remember which is which off the top of my head - some W-58s have the steel center section and some are full aluminum (not the entire case - just the 1" or so thick section in the center). HTH
well I dont have any printed info that confirms this but way back when I first got the '89 MKIII W-58 - I compared it gear for gear to the original one in my '82 MKII and they were indeed different.I'm not sure this is correct. I'm fairly certain the gearing inside the transmissions are the same. Wish I had some of my old car mags handy to verify.......
