This is an adapter plate to attach a Toyota R Series 5 Speed manual transmission to the 1UZFE, 2UZ or 3UZ Toyota or Lexus V8 powerhouse! Fully CNC Machined from 1 3/4" thick billet 6061-T6510 aircraft grade aluminum plate.
Kit includes all needed hardware, and the AN fittings for setting up the clutch line. We do not include the lines themselves, as each application will use different lines. Please inquire if you have a chassis with a popular swap, as we are likely able to provide the clutch line. You will also need a clutch/flywheel combo, the UZ auto bellhousing, and whichever other parts your chassis requires to make it all work. together Please contact us with your project details so we can set you up with the right parts you need!
As a quick recap: You will need the UZ V8 automatic bellhousing with this kit. You can use our "OEM style" or 11 lb chromoly flywheel with these kits if you plan to use a single disc clutch. Single disc clutches will need to be an SW20 MR-2 turbo. We have all sorts of available clutches, many in stock, at the bottom of the listing.
Which version will I need?
All R154 transmissions should have the long shaft R150, R151, and R155 transmissions from 1996 and newer trucks (such as Tacoma 2nd generation) should also have the long shaft.
95 and earlier truck transmissions should have the short shaft. We recommend double checking yours before ordering to avoid any confusion or mixup.
The longer shaft length is 7.25" from shaft to the case of the transmission itself (with the bearing retainer off). The shorter shaft version is about 30mm shorter, or roughly 6"
What this kit comes with:
☼ XAT Racing UZ R Series Adapter Plate
☼ Hardware needed to install plate
☼ Throw out bearing with fittings (optional, but required)
You will also need:
☼ Our flywheel: you can NOT use the R series flywheel with our kit. This will not fit the UZ engines. We have 2 separate flywheels that fit: OEM style budget and lightweight quick response. Check out the related parts on this listing.
☼ UZ factory automatic bellhousing
☼ R series transmission (R150, R151, R154, and potentially MA-5/AR5 GM transmissions)
☼ Clutch/pressure plate: this will depend on planned HP goals and chassis usage as well as personal preference. We have a myriad of choices and brands available, many in stock
☼ Clutch line: we do not include these with our kits, as this adapter plate will mate any UZ engine to a R series Toyota transmission from a 5 speed Toyota pickup, AR5 GM transmission, or 87-92 Supra turbo. Please note that fitment differs slightly between the R150/R151 and R154 transmissions. Clutch line will depend on your chassis (LHD, RHD, or if it's a swap). We can provide a line as an optional extra if we you can provide the length and fittings needed. We do not have confirmed clutch fitment for AR5 Chevy splines yet, but that is something we are looking into.
You may also need other manual conversion parts, depending on your chassis. Please keep in mind you may need to use a 3/4" bore master cylinder with this kit. The factory master cylinder may be enough, however it will ultimately depend on your application.
Bleeder Kit Options:
We also offer a bleeder line kit to make life much easier, instead of being stuck with having the bleeder fitting inside the bellhousing. This includes the fittings needed for a -4 AN setup to convert to. In most cases, the 10" line will be enough, but opting for something like the 36" line will give you the freedom of running the line anywhere. Anyone who has done this process on their back on the ground will agree that having it mounted in the engine bay instead with a quick twist makes life much easier!
Typically, the clutch hose for most applications should be 36" in total length (3 feet, about 1 yard/1 meter roughly). We can supply custom hoses with custom lengths as well, but for the majority of applications, 36" fits fine. The one we use with almost all builds has a 90* fitting on one end (to bolt to the banjo bolt fitting from this kit), and the other a straight fitting. Please contact us if you have a specific length you're looking for.
