    Celica/ Matrix steering wheel has the same spline pattern as the mini. In fact Most any year/model toyota steering wheels are ineterchangeable. I dont think toyota has changed the spline pattern for thier steering shafts in the last 30-40 years.

    Shifter couldn't be relocated further forward in the truck so we relocated some truck backwards around the shifter to allow adjustability. To avoid this hassle we definitely agree the SC300 engine or a LS400 engine with a SC oil pan is recommended.

    Boxed the rear frame and removed the spare tire cross member in preparation for the fuel tank relocation. All this to make room for the IS300 rear subframe.

    Welded in a 42 inch long 2x3 inch rectangular tube. 1/8 inch thick for plenty of strength. Then removed the cross member so everything stayed in proper alignment.

    Dope video Yotarip made showing how he does his wiring magic. Truck looks and sounds really good so far.

    Super interested to see how that IS300 rear end will.

    By the way How did your headers for the v8 fit between the control arms. its seems the non-vvti engine are still too big. Any pictures. It seems I may have to cut off my mounts and relocate them lower.

    I can snap pictures in the morning. What we did was cut the original mounting flange off a set of SC300 manifolds and weld on a piece of pipe as an extension.

    I just removed the bed again today and I'm taking measurements for the mounts and what not. What is nice is that the mounts are nearly as wide as the truck frame and from my research the track pattern is identical to the factory axle. So my offsets for wheels will still be factory spec.

    Quick question on the wiring. The motor has an obvious power and negative (red and black) but the control has 4 different colored wires. I imagine one is the ignition power to "wake it up" and it's corresponding negative as well? Am I correct? Would you be able to tell me what color wires you used? I don't mind searching but since you've done it before it would be a tremendous time saver if you could help out with that.

    Also how does it know how to give power one way or the other? Does it sense a direction when you steer then assist or something else?

    All you need is 12v constant and a good ground to the heavy gauge red and black wires. Then 12v switch on by the ignition to fire up the computer. That simple. Torque sensor changes the motor direction seamlessly.

    Ok, I got the ECU and turns out it was a non-ABS version. So to not have to deal with the VSS I ordered a Corolla Electric Steering ECU. I checked the pins and they all use within the same specs and connectors I figured I'd try it out. I'll report back.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes the plugs are the same, I had the same ecu issue. Got the right one and it was party time.

    Two minor upgrades. R154 and a stage 3 Spec clutch with 480hp holding capability.

    Really, R154? How much fuckery is involved in that swap vs the tried and true W58? Does it just fit like magic or do you have to make a different adapter plate and all that?

    Same flywheel can used, same clutch can be used. I just purchased a custom bell housing designed to bolt the 1UZ to a R154. No fuckery involved lol.

    Right on, good to know. I have seen the R bells out there, just thought there would be more stuff to fix.

    Yep. There shouldn't be any issues with the R154 fitting in the trans tunnel since these trucks are available with the R151 which is the same size as the R154. He should be able to use the same w58 trans mount also.

    Nice, I almost bought their 1J/2J to W58 bellhousing a few months back but ended up finding one attached to a whole transmission for the same price.

    That's the best way to get it. My buddies and I have used the W58 in every combination possible. We pull them out the junkyard every chance we get.
