Can it be done? A 1MZ-FE engine FWD in a 1997 RAV4 5 speed. What will I need? Well, here is the entire story. My next door neighbor just got his 1997 Camry totaled. It was parked and a truck wanted to use it as a stopper. The rear is flat, but the front clip is fine. The only thing that bothers me is that the Camry is auto. :sosad: I would like to keep my stick shift. Will the gear/axle mate up? Will the engine mounts match? Will the computer :eek:, which is auto work properly :disappoin. Will all the sensors work properly?

You're in for major fun. Read up on eye8pussies' manual swap story for the gory details. Not to mention the first V6 any RAV4 ever gets is 2GR in the newest gen so you're definitely looking at custom mounts.
