I have a 5 speed right now and am at over 48k miles. Should I need to replace the clutch, there are a few choices. I kow someone w/ over 70k miles and no problems either.

The TRD clutch is an OEM clutch w/ heavier springs. There are other clutches by Clutchmasters and ACT, to mention a few. I'm prolly going w/ a Stage 3 or 4 when I get mine. A bit heavier and will pump up your left calf if you have stop and go traffic.

Say no to stage 3 or 4 in SoCal:p :p unless you're pumping some serious boost;)
i had a clutch masters stage 3 in mine and it was great to drive it took a little getting use to but after that it almost seemed like driving on the stock clutch... with better grip that is...

had the clutch on the orange xb (5spd) replaced a few monthsback under warranty. Lost gears 1, 3, 5, and reverse all at one time - boom. gone. Palmers Toyota in Mobile replaced it no questions asked.
they replaced teh clutch on your car with a six speed?

and your car is way modified but back when mine was almost stock they wouldn't. must be nice.

no, a 5spd. The Levin 6spd was just something to do to embarass loudmouths on SL who knew everything about everything and that it was "impossible". Same reason everything else was ever done. It's back to 5. No REASON, nothing is wrong with a 6, just put it back until it's over it's warranty mileage.

I would love more information on the six speed. The box could really use one.
