Default Turbo Supra r154?

First Gear: 3.250:1
Second Gear: 1.955:1
Third Gear: 1.310:1
Fourth Gear: 1.00:1
Fifth Gear: 0.753:1

This trans will mate to an AMC? The 1st gear is marginally less than a T-5, but I think the added strength would compensate with enough power and appropriate gearing on smaller rigs, like with up to 33" tires.

Anybody know anything about transfer-case compatibility, or is this just not a good candidate?

Well, is there a reason you want to know, like you already have one?

Its really no upgrade over an AX-15, they are more or less the same, I believe.. Strength differences are probably in the gearsets with the lower numerical gearing, like why a mustang T-5 is stronger than a Jeep t-5...

You can get the R151F behind the turbo 4 cyls, they are rare and expensive, or the R150 behind the V6 trucks.

The 151s use a gear driven t-case, so it accepts a doubler without additional adapters. The 150 uses a crappy chain drive t-case, so needs an adapter for the doublers..


BTW, supras also used a version of the AW4 auto...

The guys on the AMC-List are an odd bunch that come up with interesting drivetrain combos for older AMC-cars.

The Jeep T-5 has numerically lower gearing than the Mustang T-5 in general, but there are versions out there that almost match the 4:1 Jeep ratio, like 3.9x:1.

The ratios I quoted refer to this trans specifically: This is a robust 5-speed transmission found in the MKIII Supra Turbo, the MKIV Supra (non-turbo) and Toyota Soarer (turbo) up to 2001. Wouldn't that be the trans used in the fast-as-hell twin-turbo (my friend has one), or was that a 6-speed?

Yes, I knew about that. Its being talked about among the stroker people.

Ahh, if its in a car, yeah, probably could get an AX-15 bellhousing, I think, and bolt it on. One with an external slave would be nice.



Of coruse, the fastest supras are ditching them and using TH400s.. If only the AMC guys had a TH400 case with the right pattern:tonka:
