Vehicle2010 Toyota Matrix
The Matrix has Electric Power Steering (EPS)
MotorAzure Dynamics/Solectria AC55 3-Phase AC
Air Cooled.

I installed the AC55 motor and the
original Toyota 5 speed manual
transmission in the Matrix.

I had to cut off the motor shaft and some
cooling fins on the motor to make the
drive shaft CV boot fit. I added cooling
fins to the bottom of the motor to more
than makeup the difference.
