Toyota tundra 4.7L v8 manual transmission conversion
The automatic tranny in my tundra died at 210,000 miles. Rather than replace it with another automatic, I decided to rig a 5spd manual. This is me drivin it around town a little. The audio might be kinda bad, sorry, windows were down and the trucks pretty loud.

Which is better, manual or automatic transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
http://carlylespicks.com/?p=142 Which is better, manual or automatic
transmission? Paddle shift or stick shift? Ending the debate!
For the true enthusiast, the clutch pedal and gear stick or shifter are a
JOY to use...NOT a burden. Traffic is the one exception but we are talking
about the car enthusiast. We drive fr PLEASURE, NOT to get to work or get
groceries. So traffic is not an issue when it's 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday
and you are headed to your favorite country road.
For the enthusiast, the clutch pedal is a PLUS not a minus. It is a
critical part of what makes driving a stick shift an art. Automatic is
email and manual is a hand written note. A dying art that is much more
involved and personal than email.
Making a perfect shift, makes me smile like NO paddle shift will EVER do!
Manual is a piano played with a live band, automatic is one man with a
Casio keyboard in his basement with automatic accompaniment generated by
the keyboard. The feeling of playing a complex piece correctly dwarfs any
reward of pressing ONE note and having the Casio keyboard play a bunch of
Is a paddle shift a manual transmission?
Being able to request gears manually does NOT make a transmission
automatic. Remember in the automatics from the 80s you had "2" "L" "R"? So
automatics have allowed you to "change gears" since the 80s. This is just
like modern paddle shifters do.
NOTE: A sequential gearbox is NOT the same as the classic automatic
gearbox, but the point is, you could ALWAYS select/request gears in
automatics. So the ability to SELECT gears does not make it manual. You
need the ability to physically disengage the clutch by moving the throw out
bearing and also to physically change the actual gears. This is all
mechanically done, not electronically. It requires focus, finesse,
strength, timing and skill and it's rewarding to do correctly.

2003 Toyota Tundra 4.7L V8 dual exhaust / straight pipes
2003 Toyota Tundra Access Cab 4WD 4.7L V8 - still has factory CATs, but
took off the small resinator muffler behind the CATs, and took off the big
factory muffler behind the resinator. ran Y-pipe 2 1/4'' pipe dual Exhaust out the back with 24'' long 3
1/2'' chrome tips. the video camera I used is my cheap $79.99 Kodak I got
from Wal-Mart years ago, so it doesn't quite do the justice of how loud the
truck is. the truck sounds really good to me, i really am pleased with it
and like it a lot. sorry i didnt have a better quality camera, but i hope
this gives you a little bit better of an idea of what a V8 Tundra sounds
like with str8 pipes and no muffler. it cost me 250 bucks in Dothan, AL
to get it done. . . took them a little over a half hour to do it. . they
did a great job (Extreme Mufflers)
