Just starting this conversion, got a 92 LS400 with 127k miles, and a gen 2 surf, 3.0 td auto, which died a slow painful death on me.

A mechanic friend is making the engine mounts, gearbox mounts and fitting the engine, and I'm doing all the rest. I don't have a workshop and will be doing the rest on my gravel drive.

I have seen people use both the A343F trans from the surf, and the A341E from the lexus.

I would like to know what pro's and con's are for both.

I will be updating progress here, and I hope to have it ready for the snow coming. :/ bit optimistic maybe.

The surf box can be used , by using the Lexus bell housing, pump and torque convertor. Some people use the whole Lexus box as well then wiring is easier . But then you have to adapt that to fit the transfer case. If you look at my build thread there's some info there .

Thanks for that, nice build.

Think I'm gonna stick with the lexus box. :cool:

Oh no, there goes the neighbourhood! :p
Ahem, it's only because there's tumble weeds blowing in the transplant section on surf forum.
