do u have the ecu and the engine harness and all? thats the most tedious part. id also hold out for a manual, they are around and would be much better then the auto. that would be alot of work to throw away on a slush box auto tranny.
how? a good gen3 V6 would cost around 2500+(depending on where ya live) and unless it is a 92-93 SE u wont get a manual. if you do it smart and do the work yourself a swap can cost as little as a grand, even less depending on the condition of the motor and where you source your parts. id say 1500 would be a reasonable amount to spend on a V6 swap.its cheaper and easier to buy a 3rd gen camry with a v6 already. theres simply no point in putting in all that effort and money.
if you have ever been in a manual V6 camry this wouldnt even be an issue. you will kick your self in the ass if you dont do manual. theres over a 20whp differance between the auto and manual and its 10x funer, not to mention there are upgrades like short throw shifters, clutches flywheels. there are plenty of places to find a manual, check your local junkyards, online scrapyards, there are companies i looked at in the past that have rebuilt trannys as well, hell even ebay, i thought i say one F/S on there a couple days ago for like 350 bucks.i have found the ecu and engine harness. its just the manual transmission i cant find. if u know of any online stores that might have one let me know.
smart man!!! and na, there is no turbo kit for the V6 but depending on how much power your goin for and what year the 1mz is for you can get a S/C for it. you can actually put a S/C on either 1mz but a 97+ 1mz will be an easier to put on(eye8pussies can be helpfull in reguards to S/Cing a 94-96 1mz). there are a couple people who have turboed the 1mz, id PM either glitch360 or tonythetiger. they will be able to help out the best.ok so i called the junk yard today and they have 2 trannys, both manual. so im gonna go over there one of these days and see how much they want for one of them and check them out. they also have then engine too which is cool cuz i wont have to wait for it to get shipped here. now ive got another question for my future plans. do they make a turbo kit for the v6, or am i going to have to fabricate a lot of stuff. i now that with the 5sfe, the 3sgte manifold will bolt right on, and the ct26 turbo works well with it, and some 550cc fuel injectors will be good enough for it, and ill need a front intercooler that will fit in the valence between the radiator and the bumper, but ill have to fab all the piping.
Actually, the '96 1MZ is a 1 year only engine/ECU. It's not been done on one......yet.smart man!!! and na, there is no turbo kit for the V6 but depending on how much power your goin for and what year the 1mz is for you can get a S/C for it. you can actually put a S/C on either 1mz but a 97+ 1mz will be an easier to put on(eye8pussies can be helpfull in reguards to S/Cing a 94-96 1mz). there are a couple people who have turboed the 1mz, id PM either glitch360 or tonythetiger. they will be able to help out the best.
The 1MZ is the engine code for the V6 engine.hey guys...I dont know anything about tunning cars...whats the 1MZ? is it a different engine from another car?
The 1MZ was also in all the V6 Camry's from 1997-2003, and in the LE/XLE V6 Camry from 2004-2006. It was also in other Toyota cars and SUV's, as well as in Lexus's line up.the 1mz-fe is the v6 in the 94-96 camry, the 3vz-fe is the v6 in the 92 and 93 camry.
