    Ashleys Supra 5 speed to 6 speed conversion and other stuff too!

    Ashley's Supra in back with us for a 5 speed to 6 speed V161 conversion.
    We are fitting a brand new V161 gearbox along with a Spec stage 1 clutch and flywheel too.

    Also while its here we are going to be refurbing the rear subframe, diff and drive shafts, shot blasting and powder coating them to look like new again!

    Oh and a Greddy Profec boost controller to take the power to 400bhp.

    More updates to follow soon.

    Nice looking supra
    Life is like a camera...
    Focus on what's important,
    Capture the good times,
    Develop from the negatives,
    And if things dont work out,
    Take another shot.

    Ive been looking at the new v160's. With the price of the conversions going through the roof it doesnt work out much worse considering you get a nice new box at the end.

    Just beware the gearbox is completely bare. No mount or mount bracket, gear-lever, gear-lever cradle, it doesn't even come with the selector rod, all of these bits add up.

    That is a great looking Supra, especially considering the bodykit is a mix and match of different ones.

    Would definitely benefit from facelift headlights though.
