so what is the ETA on this for a awd transfer case from the fj/fzj80's ?? my 80 series 1fz is not doing to hot so this might be something in my immediate future.
Did you write something for TT?Well after getting all the parts for my install I was able to get the black box assembled on to the back of my H55f. Went pretty smoothly as I've had a bunch of dry runs. The one thing I missed was placing the oiler for the 5th gear synchro in the front adapter plate. So I'll practice one more time once I order that part. T case rebuild is en route and will let me get the entire thing together this weekend.
I won't be posting pics on MUD of the install details but you can get the details once I write something up for Toyota Trails!
Once that's done all you need is a TLCA membership to see all the gory details of the install. (like cutting your trans output)
If it was a perfect world I might have some drive time on it early next year but likely won't be able to wheel it for some time...
So this black box is installed between a H55 and late model split case. After working with NWF on it I think the next buyers will be all set with all the material needed for a flawless install.
Thread bump @NorthWestFab how many LC units do you have out there? Can you give the overall length of a unit that would go between a Toyota H42 and a split case? I am planning a 4spd swap and would love for the overall length of the trans/black/box/ split case combo to come in very near the length of the stock A440/t-case combo.
Also, any real world feedback on them.
Had a look at a 16 spline 4 Speed/T case combo we didn't know we had in the shop, it will work out OK. Mating to the 4speed transmission uses our existing adaptor, a new input for the BlackBox, and a different lower case half and output specific to the 16 spline cases, so keep an eye out for development there. We will not be supporting any 3 speed LC transmissions.
What is the purpose of the spacer?
When you say the above, which of the following do you mean:
1) The new batch will have no spacer and be 5" long.
2) The new batch will have the spacer integrated and be 5 3/4" long.
In my case, I am using the automatic version of the split case.
NorthwestWe do not have an ETA of the FJ80 Series BlackBox Release, all we can say is that it is in the works.
