Track Update:

It was about 61 F at Fontana this morning. I was one of the first cars to run and I got a 2.238 60ft which is one of my best times for 60 feet. The 2.2 60 ft is leaving just a bit off idle say about 750 rpm, so I'm having to make up time at the top end. My best 1/8th of 9.28 @ 78.1 mph came on this run. Once I got my time slip I saw 14.313 @ 97.1 mph. Better tires, a ported lower intake manifold, and no lower back seat got me .10 in the 1/4 mile. I'm very happy because now I'm in the low 14 second club. I don't have anymore plans for mods or to run the car again for a while. I think I can be happy the way the car runs right now.

EDIT:

On the way home from work I thought about squeezing out a few more 10ths to run a high 13. During the summer when I have more days off I might take out the entire back seat, the front passenger seat, take out the back speakers, carpeting in the trunk, and anything else that can later be put back into place. I've thought of a muffler delete, since the 2 mufflers are heavy, but I'm not sure about that at the moment. Anyway my car is very fun drive on the street and at the track.

Beast67,

Have you done a ECU tune on your car? You might want to reach out to R9K Tuned. He did my tune for my camry. Made a difference. My best time is 13.96 at 102.23 mph.

Nice! That's 5 mph faster than my best. I had thought about a tune, but I'm pretty happy with a 14.3 at 97 mph. I might run my Camry every once in a long while, but the car is fun to drive the way it is now.

Great thread you have here. Sounds like you are very happy with your car, and thats whats really counts! That 2gr-fe still has a lot in it, if you ever want to take it farther.

Curious, are you still running the port and polished lower intake manifold? thats a cheap mod i might try, if you ever stopped throwing codes.

Yes, I still have it on the car. It still throws codes so I'm going to take it off after I run maybe once more during the winter. I need it to pass smog. Car has so much power on cool nights

I've had time to work on my Camry these past few days. I changed all the bolts for the fuel injection rail since I know I had broken at least on bolt from over-torquing it. No more codes for the past couple days, so I'm hopeful that my problem is solved.

Thanks for the idea of port and polishing the lower manifold!

I was a little skeptical at first because the piece is only 4-5 inches of the intake, but after removing the stock part, I see how this could help a bit. Mind you, I just changed the plugs too, but the car seems to come on a bit quicker when I hit the gas. Almost reminds me of when I had my K&N short ram intake, it didn't make as much power as the CAI, but thanks to that short straight intake tube, the power came on quick. I paid $35 for the manifold off of ebay, and the sanding wheels on the Drimmel works great for removing material. After that, bought a $10 progressive sanding pack (220, 400, 800, 1000 grits i think) from the auto store and wet-sanded it by hand. This really was a cheap mod, that would be at least as effective as P'n'P throttle body, but I'm guessing more.

It looks like you really spent some time on the lower intake manifold. I'm glad it made a difference. While I was searching for every bit of extra power I was going to v6performance.net because Honda guys go to the extremes on their cars. Porting manifold, swapping heads, swapping transmissions, etc so I gave it a try. I ran the 14.3 in April so maybe in November I can run a 14.2 or a 14.1 at Fontana.

Update:

I did not go back to the track since it never really got cold during the time the track was open. However, the Camry is reliable and fun to drive with plenty of horsepower and torque. I now have an old Chevy Nova that I am making my weekend warrior, so the Camry is my fun daily driver.
