    G52 5 Speed Manual
    Stock exhaust with leak
    Custom respray WRX blue with Black bonnet, has 3 layer

    Stock Interior

    18x8 Random alloys rear
    Torsion bar front end wound down
    Rear 3" blocks
    Front Shocks are gone
    Rear Shocks are non existent
    Drum brake rear end has new cyl and shoe's, locks up with any amount of peddle in wet with no load
    Stock front brakes, new pad machined rotors
    Picture is from 6 years ago when paint work was done


    22R timing chain guides were on the way out, so I replaced them and new chain, freshened up the motor and sold it.



    Picked up a LS400 front sump UCF11 1uz with full loom and manual conversion



    Pulled out the motor to discover G52 box, not a W series...
    Thought about using G series with the W/R series adapter
    Adapter and G52 (G series, the not spoken about cousin of the W series)

    Bought a W57
    Adapter and W57

    Shot at 2012-09-08
    A341 Bellhousing didn't want to work
    The with the Adapter bolted up to the W57, the A341 bell fouls on the bottom bolt head.

    Shot at 2012-09-08

    And the 2 widest bolts into the adapter to the box, the heads foul the bell.
    Worked it out


    Howe Hydraulic Release bearing
    Shim kit that came with it is questionable...
    Had to have a 27mm spacer made up to sit this thing far enough forward.


    Picked up power steering box for it, replaced centre rod, steering idler, and inner tie rods while I was there.
    Looks like the Alt may foul the PS box, will mount it on other side....

    W57 bolted up to stock G series mount with minimum modification, had to elongate rear rubber mount holes buy 3mm, tailshaft went straight in same spline.

    Saw that website, if I wasn't colour blind and non retarded I could probably work it out. Maybe you could help me wire my T18 when you've done your hilux haha.

    I also thought about putting a 2wd 1uz in a hilux to tow my T18 with but I wanted a 4x4 and diesel and ended up getting a turbo 80 series.

    I got mine out of a 91 celsior so no immobilisers to go through being an import engine I think. Mine only needs the most basic wiring, haha. Just a button to start it that's about it. Plus all the other wiring I could probably do myself.

    91 Celsior would be very similar to what I'm doin.
    Mine is 92 Celsior, but is Aus delivered, no traction control, no speed limiter and no immobilizer...
    Does your ECU have 4 plugs, 26pin, 16pin, 22pin and another 26pin that looks the same as 1st one, but is upside down?
    And do you have all 4, coz you need them!
    I'm one short, but devised a method using a AE92 4agze 26pin with filed down locating lugs

    Today was pretty uneventful.
    I removed the upper manifold so I could delete more wires.
    I did however get the alternator on and the p/s pump with out fouling the Rn85 p/s box....All good. Pretty happy with that!

    Has your 1UZ Alt got big round plug or oval?
    T18 would have had external regulator.
    Do you still have the wiring for that?
