For sale: all parts needed to upgrade your E153 with E53 3rd, 4th and 5th gears.
  • 3rd gear for input shaft
  • 3rd gear for output shaft
  • 4th gear for input shaft
  • 4th gear for output shaft
  • 5th gear for input shaft
  • 5th gear for output shaft
  • 3-4 hub for input shaft
  • 3rd & 4th selector ring
  • 5th gear hub & selector ring (selector ring included is from E153, they are the same)
  • 3rd & 4th gear synchros (used, good shape)
  • 5th gear synchros & keeper springs (used, good shape)
  • TONS of E-series shims... like almost all that Toyota still makes for all positions in the gearbox
These gears have been discontinued from Toyota and the E53 boxes are super rare. They came in manual (duh) Camry & LS300s from 92-93 and only with an uncommon V6 engine option.

Here's a comparison of the speeds in each gear, assuming 8500rpm, 24.7" OD tires:

Transmission / final drive / 1st / 2nd / 3rd / 4th / 5th
E153 / 4.286 / 45 / 75 / 115 / 157 / 197
E153 + E53 / 4.286 / 45 / 75 / 108 / 141 / 176

All of the hardware is in good, usable condition. The synchros are used, but in good condition - see images.

All of the hardware is sold as is with no warranty.

Asking $600 + shipping for all of the above.

Overview of everything included:


3rd, 4th for input shaft, 3rd/4th hub, 4th gear synchro shown:

3rd & 4th gears for output shaft:
