Well the W56 finally lost a tooth in second gear in 5000 miles, so I'm going with the R154 and will later put in a divorced t-case. I have a RPS 6 puck clutch on the w56 right now and was wundering if I can use this set up in the R154 with the R154 throw-out bearing, clutch fork and slave cylinder? I still have the old clutch set up but I would need to get the flywheel turned. The clutch doesn't look that bad but not sure if it is a stock set-up. Oh and every mile of the 5000 was well worth it. Very Happy Thanks

Found out the RPS clutch setup won't work. I'm going to just use the stock set-up from the R154.

the stock motor was 232 hp, freed up the intake and exhaust, with a little more boost, i think i'm around 270 hp but not sure. I would baby it into gear and then hammer it. With the R154 this thing really flys now, I'm lovin it. Sellin the clutch and pressure plate on e-bay now, still have other parts of the w56 set-up if u need them.

I have an 88 4wd pu. I took the 2 drive shafts of the parts car before i got rid of it , so i used the short 1 that was connected to the tranny and has a carrier bearing connected to it . This fell short of a cross member by a couple inches so i made a bracket to hold that. then for the 2nd half i shotened my stock driveshaft by about 11 inches useing the same end on it. It bolts right up. So I'm 2wd right now but i plan on getting an adapter from www.advancedadapters.com to work with the stock w56 tranny transfer case and make it back into a 4wd. You will like the r154 tranny if you like goin fast.

hey, i put my cardomain site in my signature. I'll try and post some new pics of my drive train set-up soon. I ended up using the stock tranny support and built a bracket that was like 4-5 inches forward and higher. Not sure how things will line up once i go to put the t-case in. Hopefully there will be enough room for the front drive shaft to pass through without hitting.

i have the stock 4:10 gears and diff.(didn't break yet), but i have the LSD diff from the car and plan on swapping it into the truck with the third member from a v6 p/u. Then i believe you just have to use a spacer from the car and truck to make it fit.

i was just woundering but i think i may go for a air locker system for front and rear of the car not very expensive over here and they say that it is more then double the strength. the one i'am getting has no pins in the air lock diff just one piece. but thankx for the info wasn't really sure if the stokie could handle it.

my motor was held back in japan for another month so still have to wait a while and the cops over here aren't making it easy to do the convertion either.... i hope they will lwt me do it.

I wouldn't put in an air locker right away. If you blow up the rear end you will most likely ruin the ARB aswell.
