7 year old thread.... Must be lucky, or the deadline for broken mirrors has expired.

To help answer the question that doesn't seem to quite fit this thread: If you want to switch over to an injected setup you would need to get the ecu and wiring harness from your donor car along with the head, and intake along with the MAF sensor. You would also most likely need the distributor. Keep the donor car handy in case there is the odd bit that is missing.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but wouldn't you also need the fuel tank, pump and fuel lines as well? Because EFI fuel systems are under higher pressure (thus unable to produce and hold the pressure) than the carby fuel system?

My mates doing this, but on his Corolla (4A-F to 4A-GE). He has to for the above reason, also because the EFI pump won't fit on the current tank due to different mounting holes

That would definitely fall under the "Odd bit" category for me.

Heh heh, that would be one large "odd bit"...but yes, the tank/sending unit/lines would have to come over from the donor car. Swapping the head will remove the cam-driven mechanical fuel pump that would be found on a carby.

Hi folks! So, I've got a Gen2 Camry with a 3S FE & auto trans. This thing can barely get out of it's own way...I'd really appreciate any help anyone can offer. It's only got 111xxx miles. Also, I read some older posts from "Hotwheelhammer" who really seemed to have cracked the code on performance mods for the Gen2 3S FE motor. HELP!
Thanks!

Wow. Reviving a 17 year old thread that itself got revived 10 years ago.

If you really want more power, even just swapping a 5-speed makes a huge difference with the 3S.

Gen2 performance mods

1st, Thanks Cressida for responding! So, I'm a spinal cord injury victim & consequently, I can't operate a clutch. So far, my research has led me to 86~89 Celica header will fit like it's supposed to be there. But the older posts showed a guy called "Hotwheelhammer" who had "cracxked th' code" on performance mods for the 3S FE. So, I'm certain that there's other performance parts available. And if there's a better automatic trans that will fit, THAT'S a swap I'd be interested in...

Cost, reliability and speed - pick two.

Don't forget most important part of turbo-upgrade, an aftermarket programmable standalone EFI system.

Best upgrade for these cars start with a suitcase full of CASH!!!
