my mothers boss blew up the v6 and wants to put a 4cylinder in it

....the amount of labor required would make it such that if you bought another Toyota with the four cylinder and sell the one you have would make things a lot easier...if you try to use the same ECU and monitoring systems will NOT work if you attempt's gotta be EVERYthing or NOTHING...engine swap and support electronics buy the one you want and sell this buggy~

"my mothers boss blew up the v6 and wants to put a 4cylinder in it" << This is about the strangest thing I've ever heard ...but your Mom should sue him and/or the company and maybe she can get a NEW Camry or something even better from whatever she's awarded! WHY would someone's boss do this...and HOW did he accomplish this feat of ultimate stupidity?
