You might be leaning out if your fuel system is starting to feel the age. But you do need to understand the engine does not continue to make power the higher you rev it, the 1mz has nice high end cams, but eventually its gonna run out of steam.
That is true, however both my MR2 and Supra will pull all of the way to the red without falling off but the Camry will not. Could be the difference between GE and FE heads I guess. I wanted to know whether or not this was a problem with my engine, or characteristic to the 1MZ. If it is characteristic to the 1MZ, what is the restriction?
Im no 1mz guru but see if you can find out if you are loosing fuel pressure in the higher rpms, it will feel just like a big power dropoff with no other symptoms. And yeah the fe heads arent anything special on the top end
The power doesn't drop off. It just feels like the engine is only spinning after that and not pulling. It's hard to explain I guess. It feels like it's giving up toward the top. It's not something I am used to in my other vehicles.
For what it is worth, I too "feel" like it drops off..... so I put in a replacement Walbro fuel pump. That made a BIG diff in the pull. I believe it was the fuel pump not being able to feed the engine at that rpm and load.
So SCDTRD your saying you put in a walbro fuel pump and you felt gains? Did you do injectors or a fuel rail? is it a 190? Solar i think its just that its a 1mz camry engine, no jz supra motor haha... As for the lack of top end i guess the only real thing to do about fixing it is go for the snail :clap:
88le is right. I raced my gen2 camry 3sfe with a 3sge mr2. of course i lost but i got off the line quicker and kept the lead until i hit the higher 5k rpm. i know im lost and this is a gen 3 post but im just saying that the heads affect the difference on power delivery. (i actually race with my gen2, my friends laugh so hard when i pull up on some cars. i think it's fun)
I have no mods at all. I was considering an intake and exhaust but from what I read here, it doesn't seem to make a difference. Then again, maybe it will. From what I see under the car, the exhaust doesn't seem to be that impeded. I am starting to hear that the 1MZ is just this way, so perhaps it is what it is.:sosad: Just feel bad that I have so many revs left to go....
i have the 3VZ-FE with a SRI, and it starts to pull harder around 3500 on up to redline, but i have an auto so the fact that i can spin leaving from stop at 2500rpm, thats just when the torque converter kicks in. ive heard that the 3VZ-FE's have more torque than high-end. but i still love how much it pulls, always.
oh, try injector cleaner(NOT STP!!!!!!!!) use gum-out, lucas, seafoam...i did it twice cause ive never done it before, i could easily feel the harder pull after the 2nd cleaning.
