Over the last couple years the priorities in my life have changed. Had Matrix Garage grown big enough to hire enough employees and leave them to running it while I pursued other things I would have happily taken that route but it has generally stayed just big enough to keep me working overtime. 
I have decided to start focusing my carreer and passions elsewhere and that means that supporting the AW, AE, 4A and related communities has had to be moved much lower on the priority list. I have decided to keep the store up to provide parts that only we offer, or other things that are hard to come by elsewhere. You will notice many big name, readily available products have been taken down and we will continue to do so. It's just not worth our time trying to compete with the big corporations selling at cutthroat prices and it just takes up more of my time. 
I will try to keep providing those parts that we make or that we have developed and sell as a service to the community but understand that now this is something I do in my spare time because I don't want to leave people hanging. 
I try to make shipments and process orders at least twice a week. If you want Amazon next day shipping buy from Amazon. I will do my best to keep order time and customer service at a reasonable level but have some understanding. I am not making money on this and it takes away from my other work and other issues that are very important to me right now. 
I have always wanted to make our designs and other information open source and available to the community but to do so properly would take a lot of time making sure that models and drawings were complete, accurate, or properly described. To go through everything and make sure it was something that I felt comfortable releasing to the community. I would love to find someone who was willing to help me do this. Someone in engineering school or passionate about this to help go through 3D scans, CAD designs, and information to prepare it. If you are interested feel free to email me. 




AW11 conversion of C60, C160 and other FWD transmissions

Ultimately I hope to do a long detailed writeup on this process but as time is limited for now I am going to link to another page that has enough info to get by for now.
There are different ways to do this conversion and different ways use different parts and have different requirements.
The process that this kit is designed for is outlined pretty well here.


The how to use the kit is on the second page here.


The other links referred to in that thread.


Suggested part numbers. Please note that these are not my instructions or part numbers. They are just copied from the links.

You will need

c160 gearbox complete with selector assembly.

c60 parts, with Toyota part numbers (assembly number in brackets) :
selector shaft : p/n 33261-20080 (33261C)
inner no 1 shift lever: p/n 33252-20060 (33251A) Correction: part# 33251-20060

I also purchased a new end cap, but you could modify the c160 one by welding a cap on it.
selector end cover : p/n 33506-20280 (33528B)


For my kit and seal retainer the important components are

oil seal : p/n 90310-15002 (33261H)
dust boot : p/n 33531-17010 (33531B)

My kit is designed to work with these parts and has only been tested with these parts.

The seal adapter kit including seals can be purchased here.

These are currently made to order so it may take up to two weeks to ship but one week is more likely.


The adapter boring kit can be rented. You will have to email us to setup payment.
Rental is currently $100 plus a $300 deposit that you will get back once the kit is returned in good condition.
