Re: Prado Gearbox

Also take note that the OD ratio is different on the two boxes with yours being slightly longer geared which will lead to more frequent down shifts.
Standard tyre size 265-/70R16 you should be on 122 approx at 2500 RPM and 140 on 3000 rpm.

Martin Just check your Vin plate on the firewall. The Prado 90 did not use the A650 box. It used the A343 Gearbox. The A650 is a 5 speed gearbox and the ECU on your Prado is 4 speed so the ECU and gearbox is not going to like each other very much and also the gear ratio's do differ a lot. Rather jus...
