Saw this ad and trying to swoop asap.. no answer yet..
Just found this thread and found out that a bell housing from the 2tr goes from 3rz to the R-series Trannys.. Stoked! heres a link for the thread..
LT, what gearing are you running in the rear for your turbo setup?? Thanks. im thinking 4.88s for the 33" but im not sure with the setup of a close gear ratio R151 Transmission.. Your thoughts and advice is appreciated!
I've been out of the loop for a bit being patient waiting on parts.
I initially purchased 33's when I did my suspension mods and with the stock 4:56 gears and the 3rz it was fine around town, but hit a long hill on the highway you're always getting a run at it in 4th or even 3rd. Now with the power mods, the tire and gear combo are practical and fun too.
I haven't got the truck completely back together yet. I bought a Marlin Crawler R150F HD with billet shift fork, chromoly trust washer, and they did an input shaft swap on my transfer case. From what I've read, the Marlin 05+ bell housing adapter is actually shorter than an OEM 05+ unit so that driveline and cross member problems don't occur.
