When we took a look at the previous generation of adapter plates, all we could see was room for improvement and higher quality. We wanted a plate that would mount PERFECTLY with zero slop. It needed to look good and perform even better. DON'T get stuck with an overvalued, sloppy plate that ends up costing you input shafts and has poor fitment. You can go with a less expensive alternative and end up with broken parts, or you can do it right the first time with us! No complaints with over 5 years of service
This billet aluminum adapter plate reuses your automatic 1UZ or 3UZ bellhousing. It will require you to cut off the CD009 bellhousing, which gives MUCH more room to work with in most chassis. Alignment of the input shaft becomes dependent on this plate and not the quality of the bellhousing cut, so worry not! This isn't like other kits out there.
Regardless of which clutch you use, you will need to use the QM throw out bearing.
With single disc clutch setups, this kit is designed to use our custom flywheel that uses off the shelf "Z32 turbo" (89-96 Nissan 300ZX twin turbo) clutches, which are inexpensive, readily available, and hold power well. This will fit all versions of this transmission: CD001, CD003, CD005, CD008, CD009, JK41A, JK41B, JK40C, 1EA0A, and 1EA0B. Please see the listing below for the flywheel needed.
Please note that with a single disc clutch, this requires a proprietary flywheel. OUR "OEM STYLE" AND "LIGHTWEIGHT" XAT FLYWHEELS WILL NOT WORK WITH THIS TRANSMISSION. The twin disc setups include their own flywheel, but will also need a ring gear for the starter (the OEM auto flex plate).
Included with purchase on this listing: ☼ Adapter plate with hardware to install
☼ Quill tube for mounting the hydraulic throw out bearing
☼ Pilot bushing adapter, with bushing installed
☼ Throw out bearing (optionally)
SupraStore took a hard look at the concept, and decided to go all in with the "Toyota Small-Block" design. These V8s have started becoming overwhelmingly popular over the past few years!
We now also offer a solid steel clutch alignment tool as an alternative to a throwaway plastic one. This alignment tool is definitely recommended for multi disc clutch setups, as it makes installation of the transmission far easier. The steel version also resists the clutch disc from eating the splines, as we often see on the plastic versions.
We typically recommend using a 3/4" bore master cylinder with this kit. Some of our customers have had success using a stock replacement master cylinder, but for best results (and what it is designed for), the 3/4" is the way to go. We offer a Tilton master cylinder kit, which should bolt on to popular chassis swaps like the MkIV Supra, SC300/SC400, or IS300.
Our products are CAD designed with OEM blocks and transmissions on professional equipment by industry professionals. No bad measurements, no flame cuts, no warped discs, no nonsense.
This is the missing link for doing the 1UZ swap, or simply adding a manual transmission to your already existing 1UZ-FE powered vehicle (LS400, SC400, and GS400 included). Our CNC process for manufacturing the plate results in an extremely precise adapter plate, laser tight tolerances, and a focus on quality that has yielded a product that will produce less wear on the transmission and clutch. The kits being sold by our "competition" are routinely a few thousands off and have sloppy fitting dowel pin holes. We have even seen these first hand being warped right out of the box! The adapter kits come with the needed pilot adapter and bushing as well. This is the tried and true kit from SupraStore, except no imitations when it comes to 1UZ.
