  3. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has seen this issue before. I bought an '02 SMT about a month ago and knew it had transmission issues from the start. At first it had some issues shifting into reverse or first gear, but it would go in if I cycled from neutral to reverse a couple of times. It...
  4. SMT
    Hi all, this is my first post here as a new owner of an '02 SMT Spyder. Luckily it looks like I haven't had any major issues with the SMT, however I'm getting a nasty whine in 1-3 gears. I think one of the transmission bearings is shot and there's grinding from 1-2 and 4-5. Rather than...
  5. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a 2003 Spyder with 1ZZ and stock 5-spd MT. The shift action up and down the gears is smooth except for a sometimes-notchy 2-3 shift (the 3-2 downshift, on the other hand, is never notchy). This is the pattern I've observed: if circumstances (i.e. traffic, speed limit) allow me to...
  6. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I've been having a sort of grinding noise coming out of my transmission area that I can't pin point. It starts out as sort of a metal on metal noise but then subsides when the car gets up to operating temperature. It also goes away when I press in the clutch. I intially thought it was the throw...

    Had a spyder for a few months and finally decided to swap out the smt unit to manual. Just wondering if there is any way to swap the sequential clutch fork out of the transmission without dropping it? Would love some help, Cheers
  8. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have a big question My first car was a manual z32 NA v6 so I’d be shifting much earlier than in an mr2 and it felt smooth and went into gear easy but that was years ago only autos since then. What I want to know is how does shifting feel for you guys? As well as if mine just feels mr2 like. I...
  9. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey all, My 2zz +c60 6 speed swap was just completed today. Every clutch related component except for the flywheel was brought over from my 5 speed to the 6 speed. When i had my 5 speed, the clutch was working flawlessly (atleast to me it was). when i first drove it today, the clutch felt...
  10. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I have the transmission removed (replacing with a 6sp) on my 2000. While it was off, I replaced the rear main seal, got a new flywheel (cheaper than refinishing, believe it or not), new clutch pressure plate. While I have the tranny out, anything else that I should consider replacing or...

  13. SMT
    Hello, I'm brand new here - never posted before so I hope you'll tolerate my naivete and general lack of knowledge. I have a 2003 Spyder that I've owned for 12 years and have always loved this car. Over 80K of ownership (it has about 117K total), aside from standard maintenance I've only had to...
  14. Performance Modifications
    Hi. Is it true that the use of 6speed transmission in a turbo 2zz is not recommended? I read that the turbo breaks it, so it is preferable to use c56 transmission. I have also read that the C60 transmission is too short for turbo, but the C63 has a different ratio. I have the opportunity to...
  15. Performance Modifications
    I just got my 6-speed transmission from MikeV and can't wait to get it installed. I'm looking at replacing the shifter with a short throw, and came across two in particular of interest (if there are more, I'm open to suggestions). Monkey Wrench Racing: Short Shifter Kit $89 TWM Performance...
  16. Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    Hey everyone, On my drive to Atlanta today, my 2002 MR2 (manual, not SMT or SMT conversion) was suddenly very difficult to shift into every gear. The only previous transmission problem I've had is that it would grind if downshifting into 4th too quickly. It feels as if you are shifting the...
