traffic is a bitch... i hate being stuck in traffic.
anywhoo Daniel is right. Beams only works on facebook because all the info is provided on there through vaguely constructed questions such as: "hey guys, how do you swap a beams?" or "does a 3sge beams fit in my gt?" or the ever pondering "what iz beams?"

No, these days you learn how to do BEAMS swaps on Facebook.


It's retarded how true that comment is. Did anyone else see that ebay short shifter thread? After the first few posts, I just gave up.

I don't use facebook because I'm too nice and spoon feed people, it's a method of self preservation.

quarter inch extended slave cylinder rod, and of course new tranny gaskets.... the rod and the normal shifter, makes shifting the 2gr much better... it was a poor choice of clutch.

Do you have an ACT clutch in the car?

That was the only time we needed an extended slave cylinder rod. I HATED that clutch.

There was a guy on ToyotaNation looking to swap a 2GR into a Gen4 Camry. I sent him your way. He decided not to do the swap. What's up with that???

I had ACT clutch, the stock level one, in my 5SFE Camry mated to a Fidanza FW - I don't know why, but I would always smell clutch after some city driving, and the thing wore down in like 15k miles. Odd. I don't think I'm that bad at driving shtik.

which i dont get, because engine prices are lower now, and the swap can be had for almost same price if not less than a 3sgte. Sure people like turbos, but the 270hp on a fwd sucks. but i guess this is one of those things that will never catch in the car community.

beams is catching up several years later
