Transmission Conversion Parts

These parts allow you to convert a "rear shift" (FWD) E series transmission (E153, E350, E351, E352) from a Camry, Scion, etc to "front shift" to install in the MR2.  The shift shaft has multiple snap ring grooves and pin holes to accommodate all variations of these transmission that I am aware of.  Simply match them up with the shaft you remove from the new transmission and install the shift hardware from the new transmission in the same locations.

Shift shaft for E153 / E351 transmission

The shift shaft comes with a back cap to close off the original rear shift opening, sealed with an O-ring and retained with green locktite (included).  Also available without the cap for those repairing a broken shaft in an MR2 transmission, or if you have an MR2 back cap to use on your Camry transmission.

You will need the shift lever and shift bellcrank from an MR2, either E153 OR S54 transmission to complete the conversion.  Please contact me if you are interested in a reproduction of these parts, I will consider it if there is demand.

Shift Bellcrank Bracket

Shifter bellcrank bracket

The shift bellcrank bracket is unique to the MR2 E153.  If converting a Camry E153 or an E35x you will need to source either the MR2 E153 bracket, or purchase this reproduction.  As noted above, the bellcrank and shift lever can be sourced from either an MR2 E153 OR an S54.

ABS Tone Ring Spacer

Tone ring spacer Tone ring spacer installed

Keeping ABS while using the current axle solution for the narrow E-series transmission requires swapping the MR2 tone rings to the new axles.  This spacer is required for that swap, as described in my blog.  Sold by the pair.

Installation Note:  Be careful to keep the tone ring perfectly flush with the outer most press fit ring on the CV joint.  If it is not flush it will cause variations in the sensor air gap and may lead to ABS error codes.

Transmission Info

To the best of my knowledge, these parts will work with any E153 OR any E350 / E351 / E352 transmission, see the E-Series Transmission Wikipedia page for details on models and years and the various gear ratio / final drive options available.  Installing the E350 / E351 / E352 "narrow E-series" transmission in the SW20 requires a new rear mount bracket, available from Frankenstein Motorworks.
