Toyota / Getrag have discontinued support on the V160. Due to this, we will no longer be able to offer full services for this transmission.
Many of the necessary parts needed to properly repair this transmission are just no longer available. While aftermarket alternatives do help, many of the necessary core components are not readily available. We are certain that someone (or multiple people) are sitting on a stack of brand-new OEM parts, but we have completely exhausted all of our stock.
Moving forward, we will only be able to provide a few aftermarket solutions to correct problems due to worn synchros (forward gears only – No Reverse), worn shift forks (no rails), leaking oil seals, and a couple of the bearings. Replacement gears, shafts, and hub/sliders assemblies are no longer available through us and we have a very limited amount of New Intermediate shafts on hand.
Because of this, we simply cannot provide a complete and thorough rebuild service on your V160. The only exception would be if YOU (the Customer) can provide US (the Builder) with EVERYTHING needed to completely overhaul your transmission!
No package pricing is available! We will charge an hourly labor rate plus parts to perform any service to your V160. Please contact us BEFORE you decide to send your transmission to us!
Current V160 Available Parts Include:
Does your V160 whine? The whine can be caused by many things, but in most cases it is due to a damaged and wiped out input and counter 5th gear. If you can find one, we can fix the whine. As with every other gear, these parts have been discontinued by Toyota for a long time now.
Micropolishing is a gentle polish on the gears done by machine that will smooth and remove some stress concentrations uniformly. It also polishes the gears in the area they make contact with other parts, so you have less friction loss which means less heat, better fuel economy, and longer life.
We can modify the OEM center housing to allow more oil to reach the drive gears during a long acceleration pull. The drive gears are located at the front of the trans. This means when you accelerate hard the oil works its way to the back of the trans and your front drive gears run without oil (at full power too) and they burn up and start to whine. If you are tired of whining V160 gears, this build will help assure it will not happen again.
CARBON FIBER SYNCHROS
Carbon Fiber Friction Liners / Synchros
These billet shift forks are made from 7075 aluminum, hard anodized, and include modified oil passages for greater lubrication.
We hard anodized for:
• Increased Wear Resistance
• Increased Abrasion Resistance
These billet forks are beefed up a bit over the OEM castings and the 7075 aluminum is about twice as strong as the stock castings. Engineered exclusively by Jacks Transmissions.
|Cleaning Disclaimer||<p>Jacks Transmissions has grown into a company which now services exotic and terribly complex DCT (dual clutch transmissions) used in the GTR, SST, Porsche, Audi, VW, and many more high end vehicles. Due to this exciting change, we have spent a lot of money for the state-of-the-art equipment needed to service these high dollar and expensive units. We have also designed and built many of our own parts for these vehicles.</p> <p>All machine work, cleaning, and detail work is performed in-house by very talented technicians and engineers. The quality you get from Jacks Transmissions is an unbelievable bargain. We do not know of anyone else who cleans the transmission via a 110gal Ultrasonic and Pulse-Jet unit, or who employs such talented people. </p> <p>Exceptionally clean units are one of the many reasons why our Transmissions and Transfer Case assemblies are of the highest quality in the business! We have <a href="news/technical-articles/687-cleaning-equipment">state-of-the-art cleaning equipment</a> which other transmission builders and service shops could only dream of. </p> <p>With the best cleaning equipment, we also have a very clean facility. All units are built in a spotless environment using tools, and benches, which are clean and only used for assembly purposes. In other words, the same tools used to pull your dirty old transmission out of your car are NOT the same tools used to rebuild your pristine unit afterward. Take a look at the typical shop and check their tools. It is shocking how dirty things are in most shops and that dirt will end up in your unit. That does not happen here.</p> <p>The quality and experience you get from Jacks Transmissions shows with the overwhelming number of high-end vehicles we service in our shop. Be a part of the rare opportunity to have one of the cleanest and most experienced specialty shops in the World service your transmission! </p> <p>Our pricing structure was created to assure only the highest quality materials and workmanship. Anyone which beats our price is taking short-cuts which you will pay for in the end. Look into the details of our build services and you will see the additional attention we provide which is unique and cannot be duplicated.</p>|
|Core Exchange||<h4>CORE EXCHANGE SERVICE</h4> <p>Please <a href="mailto:%email@example.com">EMAIL</a> us for price and availability. Many of the build services we offer can be performed on an 'exchange' basis. Core charges and core convenience fees are separate from the costs of the build service. In many cases, core fees can be refunded pending the condition of what we receive in exchange. Note: We will retain a 10% convenience for this service.</p>|
|Optional Upgrades||<h3>Additional Options:</h3> <h4>MID-CASE MODIFICATIONS</h4> <p>We can modify the OEM center housing to allow more oil to reach the drive gears during a long acceleration pull. The drive gears are located at the front of the trans. This means when you accelerate hard the oil works its way to the back of the trans and your front drive gears run without oil (at full power too) and they burn up and start to whine. If you are tired of whining V160 gears, this build will help assure it will not happen again.

This allows for quicker and more precise shifting and prolongs the life of the synchro sleeve and gear engagement teeth. <p><img src="images/Product_Descriptions/Carbon_Synchros_V160_medium.jpg" alt="Carbon Fiber Synchro Set V160"></p> <h4>WPC GEAR TREATMENT</h4> <p>WPC is a permanent surface treatment that reduces friction while strengthening the part. Its unique micro-dimple formation pattern greatly reduces friction and is unmatched by conventional methods of surface treatment. It is a proven process that has been utilized for many years in the racing and automotive industry and is complimented by utilizing our Micropolish treatment. WPC can strengthen parts in two ways. First it adds an extremely high level of compressive stress at, and near, the surface. The second, is that the WPC treatment creates a Nano - Crystalline structure at the surface of the metal. Both of these mean that metal fatigue and crack initiation are both noticeably reduced; thus strengthening the gears and shafts inside of the transmission.</p> <h4>MICROPOLISH</h4> <p>Micropolishing is a gentle polish on the gears that will smooth and remove some stress concentrations uniformly. It also polishes the gears in the area they make contact with other parts, so you have less friction loss which means less heat, better fuel economy, and longer life. </p> <h4>BILLET SHIFT FORKS</h4> <p>These billet shift forks are made from 7075 aluminum, hard anodized, and include modified oil passages for greater lubrication.<br><br>We hard anodized for:<br>• Increased Wear Resistance<br>• Increased Abrasion Resistance<br><br>These billet forks are beefed up a bit over the OEM castings and the 7075 aluminum is about twice as strong as the stock castings.

|Technical Info||<h4>HEAVILY WORN OR DAMAGED UNITS</h4> <p>Any additional parts needed which are not listed or not part of this build will cost extra to replace. We will email pictures and detailed information if this is the case. We know you do not like surprises, so we try to make this process as painless as possible. If this turns out to be the case, though, please keep in mind that we just want you to have a high quality built assembly. Having your vehicle down is bad enough, so why cut corners and risk it again? Quality is the key here and sometimes it costs more to do this on a specialty or aging platform. Simply put, it is not worth the risk of using a sub-par component if an inspection reveals it is a weak link. </p> <h4>ATTENTION TO DETAIL</H4> <p>All machine work and cleaning is performed in-house. We also spend a lot of time on synchro timing, alignment and operation to give you the best shift possible.
