Good afternoon
I am looking for an engine for my 2006 Camry. It shows it could have two engines. One a Japanese and one a USA engine. How do you tell which is which since it shows the same code for the vin?
Any reason a USA one couldn't work in place of a Japanese one?

by way of introduction, maybe you could tell us a bit about the car/engine/trans/maintenance history/condition and what's wrong with your current engine? also, is yours a u.s. or japan built car? where do you live? if in a state with emissions inspections, that could make a difference if you don't use the one it came with for the ecu, etc.

No idea on the Japan or us built. No sticker in the door jam. Live in Michigan so federal only not California emissions.
2.4 with an automatic.
So would a 2.4 auto bolt to a 2.4 auto Japanese. A usa engine is about 500$ less.

If the ID plate is missing from the door jamb you may have bigger problems than just an engine. The VIN is also on the engine, trans, dashboard and a couple more places I can't remember right now. If the first digit of the vin is a 1,4, or 5 it is a US built vehicle. If it is a J it is a Japan built vehicle.
