yes that is true but this does not exclude the SPI from using mtx-75, it only says the the ib5 only came on spi's

I have helped people on here with an spi and a mtx75 thats why I say there are spi's with mtx75's.

SPI's were only built with the IB5 transmission.

The bolt holes on the MTX75 flywheel do not match up with the SPI crank. So unless someone is getting a flywheel done properly (ie holes being filled and new holes precisely located on the flywheel) then it wouldn't work. I did hear rumours awhile back (possibly on FJ) of someone getting the holes close and then just torqueing them down so the flywheel was sitting snug with the direction of rotation but I can't imagine that would be a good idea.

Not to mention the differences with sensors...

In theory you can only use a car with the same motor as yours, so for you I would say get stuff from a 05-07. No guarantees...
