    Hello,
    I have a Toyota FJ Cruiser 2007 I plan to upgrade the engine and trying to get some information what would be the best option and I need assistance, what would be the best possible transmission /reinforced/ to go with the new engine or the current set up if I can not find an option.
    I'm looking for options for the engine - I was told Hemi is a good one, but not sure whether that will be possible. The idea is to add some power to the car /700 hp will be fine/ as I want to use it for offroad racing. I'm doing a complete tuning and I will have a TRD supercharger installed together with Sprint booster. I have Nitto Mud Grappler tires - size 37x13.5/R17, new 6 inches suspension from Procomp and I need a durable heavy duty transmission that will not break in the future. The current problem is that it started shuttering and I can feel that it will be gone soon. I want something that will be fine with all the the other upgrades.
    I will really appreciate your help.

    Thank you in advance

    Jimmiee,

    I hope I am contacting the right person. i have a 2007 FJ with around 160K miles on it. I t just started having a "shudder" at around 40MPH. I have looked all over the NET and found this sight. Would it be best to have the dealership change the fluid in my trans first to see if this will fix the issue? I can not find a video of how to do myself or I would. Any advise/help is greatly appreciated. This is my only vehicle and can not afford for it to crap out on me. My email is kbriceno@nc.rr.com this would be the fastest way to contact me.

    Thanks, Kelly

    Jimmiee,
    I saw your name was brought up as a transmission specialist..I hope I am pming the right person.
    I have a 2010 fj. I was driving on a beach (H4). Came off the beach, went to N and switched back to H2. Went to take a turn, fj started jerking like I was still in 4wd. Went thur a gears, in N, keep jerking. No light was on when I switched to H2. When I would switch to H4, L4, light would come on..took to dealer in Richmond, Va. they told me Differential lock was stuck on. They jumped power straight to rear diff. lock motor and tapped w/hammer, came unstuck. They tried again, locked again. My two choices were, $2000.00 repair bill, or do not use rear diff lock. Either tape it or disconnect the rear Diff lock switch... Do they know what they are talking about or should I get it checked out again at another place?

    Thanks for your opinion, Marc
