Default GT with a C60 GTS Transmission

Hey guys, I have been searching for a while on the internet on this being done... With no luck of course haha. I did find that people did say that you could put a GTS 6spd C60 Transmission onto a 1ZZFE GT Engine. Well I decided to get ballsy and try it. I ordered it, and put it in last weekend. Other than one solid stud that blocked me from bolting it to the block... Which I pulled out with a flat head screwdriver and vice grips, It did bolt right up!

Why did I do this? Well my old transmission was going bad I couldn't find a used 5spd that was in good shape and had a good price. it's the only car I got, so I needed to do a quick swap and the C60 was cheaper and available... I plan on rebuilding the 5spd C56 transmission and selling it when it's ready. I did notice a small speed increase and increase in gas mileage by maybe 3 mpg on highway. It feels great! Now I just need a new shift knob that has 6spd shift info lol. :P

All in all I just wanted to be that guy that says... "Yes it's official, I have done it, and it's quite easy to do and I am very happy with the results!"

Well if I was to swap for a 2zz I would have to do many costly changes... new ECM, etc... haha for an extra "40" horses... meh, I am happy with the 1zzfe. I know it front and back, and I plan on doing some modifications to that soon too.

I too wish to keep my 1zz and will rebuild it in the near future. I see no need for hitting lift as so many say it with a 2zz when if you do it right you can achieve the same thing from a 1zz. keep posting pics.

Nice, but look into the 2zz swap, a lot of the 00-02 1zz's have oil burning

Very true...but since he rebuilt the motor he will have no problems with burning oil anymore.

Yeah, I rebuilt mine, I initially didn't have the oil burning issue. but I rebuilt mine after I spun a bearing on one of the connecting rods to the drive shaft. So I replaced all pistons, one connecting rod, and the drive shaft on the inside, re-honed the cylinders, flushed and cleaned all the ports and oil reservoirs, had a valve job done on the head. I replaced the oil pump too just in case that failed for some reason. So far, it's been almost 2 years and it's running strong!

i think he sold his car. but all you need is the transmission and thats it. everything else is reusable. clutch, flywheel axles are the same. just make sure the trans your buying is in good condition or just rebuild it.
