Two things to add here one: it's quite simple to adapt a Toyota 5 speed to a Ford steel bell housing, I just finished one. Second I just heard of a fellow thats putting two V8 60's to gether to form a V16. nOT SURE WHAT IT'S GOING IN.

Ron thanks for the heads up. Do you know which Toyota model had the 5 speed you mentioned. Do you have pictures of the modification you made you could post.

Thanks

I think it's a W-55 or W-56, I'm doing the machine work for someone else so I'm not firmiliar with Toyota transmissions. Yes I have some pics of the mods and will post them. Waiting for the bell housing to come back from the sand blasters.

I would use the EAB heads, they are smaller and give more compression. If that is accually a merc engine with the 4in. crank, the EAB heads will bring it right to the front. Walt

The Merc heads are low compression similar to the 8RT. Not a good choice for a street engine

How about if I machine the heads to give it the same compression the EAB heads have what do you think.
