5 Speed Transmission
The 5 Speed Transmission on a 1UZFE VVT and the earlier models of the 3UZFE are equipped with these transmissions. They have ratios that are more suitable for most 4X4 vehicles without having to do diff ratio changes but this depends on many factors such as tyre sizes. The ratios are much stronger in first and second gears than the older four speed transmission on the 1uzfe engines.
5 Speed Transmission Ratios (A650E)
First = 3.357
Reverse = 3.431
and the original diff ratio was rated at 3.266
If you get your diff ratio correct together with your tyre sizes being right you should be at around 3000 Revolutions per minute at 120 kilometres an hour. This is a guide line only as it will depend on the vehicles application to determine if you want more torque at lower speeds, trying to get better top end or trying to get better fuel economy.
