    I have a few questions on the above?
    1. an anyone confirm that all this info is correct
    2. Will the C50,C150,C153 work on a EP82
    3. Will the C52 really fit most Toyota A series engine
    4. Will a C56 fit the EP82
    5. Is the C59 really Similar to C52 but stronger. Will it fit an EP82
    6. Is there any 6 speed box that will work on an EP82 - if so is it worth it

    C56 gearbox from glanza will fit EP82 but the final drive is not 4.3, it is the same as GT (C52) which is 3.7
