engine swap

  1. Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I've got a good 4cyl engine in my 1996 Camry LE. I also have a 1992 Corolla 4cyl with a nice body which recently acquired rod knock. What are the primary differences between these cars? I don't understand the difference between a Camry and a Corolla. I've also done other engine swaps but never...
  2. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    Hello! I'm kinda new to engine swaps, so there are quite a few things needing the help from you guys before I can make any progress. To put it simply i have a 1990 Camry sedan with a dying 3S-FE and a slipping A140E. Since other family members will use the vehicle as well I think it's best to...
  3. Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    Hello, I'm a new Toyota owner. I've been doing my own car work for 20 years and have gone to school for automotive tech, with high performance power train, and chassis fabrication specialization. I've owned my 2 door 2003 manual echo for about 8 months. I bought it for $500. This is my first...
  4. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    I know there are several older engine swap options for tercels and I've seen the threads about them. My question is would anything newer fit under the hood? I know you can get new corollas in a 6 speed manual, could that engine and transmission fit? I've got a 91 Tercel that I just rebuilt the...
  5. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    I have a 97 toyota tercel, and I want to put a different engine in it, because it only has 93 horse power and I want more than that, any ideas of what engine to go for that will fit for sure?
  6. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    Hello. I am new to this forum and new to the world of Toyota's in general. In about a month or 2 I will be buying a 1996 Toyota Tercel from my brother and I had a few questions. The car has a small motor oil leak and I was wondering if I should fix that and build the motor it currently has...
  7. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    So I’m looking to get a 3.0L V6 FWD JDM Engine - 1MZ-FE to swap out the 2.4 in my 2002 Camry. Now I’ve heard it’s next to impossible facepalm but I’m curious as to if it would be possible to modify and get either a supercharger or turbo kit placed within? I know it sounds obscene but I had to ask.
  8. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    So I own a 2005 Toyota Matrix Base model (front wheel drive, Automatic transmission, 1ZZ engine) I just wanted to know if it’s possible to swap it with a 2zz engine that the XR models have and what would be needed to be done. Because my car is lacking power and is running up a lot of miles and...
  9. Corolla 7th Generation (1993-1997)
    I have recently taken a 7AFE out of a 1996 Corolla GLX, and placed it into a 1994 Corolla GL, that had a 4AFE in it. Why you may ask, well I had the offer of a free donor car with an engine that had half the milage. My 94 corolla has just clicked over 500K. Both vehicles are manuals, no airbags...
  10. Tercel, Paseo, Starlet, and Sera Forum
    I have a sick 1989 tercel hatchback with a engine that is completely blown. I was wondering what the best engine/ transmission swap options would be. I was hoping to get something quicker and more modern than stock but also something that is still not unreasonable for price and difficulty to...
  11. Camry 1st and 2nd Gen (1983-86) and (1987-91)
    I have been looking for engine swaps for a 91 camry wagon and I have seen a lot of discussions on 3s-ge and 3s-gte swaps but I haven’t seen much about the 4age. Has anyone seen or heard of someone doing a 4age swap before? If so does it require custom motor mounts, axles etc. If there is a...
  12. Introduce Yourself Here
    So I own a 2002 Camry XLE, with the 3.0 V6. Now call me crazy, but would it be possible (I know “anything is possible with enough money”) to swap in an LS4? My active imagination won’t let the thoughts quit.

  15. Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    I Have an 02 corolla. The old engine is bad, and I am looking to replace it. I know it is not worth repairing (the cost of the project far exceeds the cars value), but I really like my car, and I want to learn more about how cars work. I have never replaced an engine or anything like this...
  16. Avalon 1st Generation (1995-1999)
    Hey guys it’s cresting about time to do a motor swap with my avay and I’m thinking about going ahead and just putting a 3MZ in instead since it’s the same motor with a less sensitive knock sensor but does anyone know if it should be a direct plug and play or if there will be more required. Any...

  18. T-100 Forum
    I recently started working on my vehicles and am learning how all the pieces make up the whole. Overall it has been pretty good only small issues to figure out. A few months ago though my 4x4 95 T-100 made this terrible noise and started shaking when I was driving and I brought it home and...
