Wouldn't you need to change the ECU too? But then it would be the wrong ECU for the engine... Sorry dunno - praps I should shut up and let someone who knows more answer...

Hey guys,

I am thinking about purchasing a RS200 AT and convertong it to MT. Will I be able to get the gear out of an IS200?

Yes but you'll have your work cut out fitting it to an RS200

Also What type of engine and box are in the AS200?

AS200 is the same straight-six 2.0L 1G-FE engine as the IS200. The RS200 is the four pot 2.0L 3S-GE engine.

See here:

AS/RS200 specs

I have the Electronic Parts Catalog and there is definitely a difference between the AT and MT engines...

Some differences on the cam and valve components.

Would suggest engine-ecu and gearbox change if going for the manual...

...Did also read somewhere that the manuals are more prone to failing emissions regs....

Hope this helps...

Well i'm sure i read on some forum that it is possible... but you are never going to make it as good as an original Manual as that engine is designed to rev higher than the Auto.....

Don't buy the Auto , buy an original Manual........ personally i wouldn't butcher my car as i love my tiptronic :D

My car just gone in to garage to do the MT convertion, you need to change the whole wiring loom of the car as there is a lot of electric componet are different such as ECU, dash board..... The gearbox housing of RS200 and the IS200 are also different, also need to take out the engine to fit the clutch box as the engine is block the space to fit the clutch padal.

Therefore after all that, I decide to change the whole car bush to TRD incude engine mount, steer rod bush and gearbox mount..... also bought a TRD instrument to replace the AT one as all the light on the instrument are different, manifold are also different, after decide to do the convertion I found out there are lots and lots of parts you need to replace.

I can update some information if you need do but the engineer have told me it will take between 2 1/2 to 3 weeks to do the jobs.

There are loads of "manual" altezza's for sale in Ireland, different in Britian where it seems most are an Auto.....

Factor in the cost of the conversion on top of the purchase price and explain why you don't just buy a Manual in the first place????????

BTW ..... I have no problem getting the car sideways ..... :winky:

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
