    "I’ll adjust my throttle position ever so slightly and the transmission will suddenly kick back into second gear, revving the guts out of the little engine." I remember this happening before I converted mine to manual. You could drive along just before the point of it kicking back a gear. " If I pump the accelerator or put my foot down it will go back into 3rd " Now that is really weird! Usually I lifted off and it went back up a gear to 3rd, but then I'd lost so much speed I had to carefully to work it back up without it kicking down to 2nd again. Long slight uphills where I live. " as soon as I release the throttle again it will kick back into 2nd again." Yes, that is the opposite of what should happen. Isn't there a second cable on the throttle that does the kickdown at high throttle openings?? and a vacuum line from the inlet manifold to the box so it can sense inlet vacuum?? Its been so long since I had an auto now. If you disconnected them, can you drive it on the gearlever?? It should lack the kickdown then and just go up and down the gearbox depending on the rpm.

    Ahh Ok, thanks for the info mate. If that's the case, then I'm guessing you could theoretically plonk either of those engines + the box complete, straight into an is200, and vice versa. That would be an especially good swap for the rx8, as those rotary engines don't last long, and guzzle fuel. I guess the only way to know for sure, if the 2az-fe would fit, is to mate it upto the box, and see.

    Same as a KE70, the Altezza manual runs a 4.1, the auto a 4.3. Found the page I was after... Here's a comparison of the K, T W & J160 boxes, and the 'close-ratio' 5 speed from the Datsun Z series. You'll see the J160 has a lot more gears crammed into the same ratio space, with 5th as 1:1 like most gearboxes 4th. It just great if you're working your way though the tight & twistys, but not noticeable if you're on straighter roads. J160 6th gear is 0.87, the same as a K50 5th, so definitely not a tall gearbox.

    AE93 SX parts car, Don't have any updated photos as it's sitting way down the back yard, but all the brakes and interior, wing, front end etc went onto my AE94.

    Hello, I've had the ke20 disc brakes on my ke10 for years. Last year the bearings went kaboom and I just threw in a new set of ke20 bearings. Now I was just reading the wiki conversion page for fun and noticed that I would've to use the ke10 back bearing on it.. What is the reason for this? It seems to work fine but there has to be a reason.
