2002 Camry SE V6 Engine Swap

10

Asked by Apr 18, 2013 at 02:58 PM about the 2002 Toyota Camry SE V6

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2002 Camry SE with a 3.0L V6 (1MZ) engine and wanted to know if I could swap the engine to the newer (2011) 3.5L V6 (2GRFE). I know that I would also have to change the ECU and Transmission CU but what else has to be changed? Can I reuse my existing engine mounts, axles, radiator, fuel pump, etc? Will I have to change the main dash module with all the gauges? Please advise. Thanks.

why do you need to do this? how many vehicles had a different engine installed successfully, ever in your estimation?....got to start thinking about the reality of having a frankenstein monster to buy parts for~

I don't understand this response. An engine swap is one of the most popular customizations that gear heads all over the country do. I want to know all that is required to do the same for my project car and that's why I am asking a Car Guru.

we deal in people's car problems, not aware of "swaps" if this seems sensible, electronic components are NEVER designed for the application, attacked for calling this what it is, you'll not be finding an easy route with this~

Try a Toyota forum to see if anyone has experience with swapping engines. This is more of a repair site and you'll do better asking other Camry enthusiasts. --- http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/15-camry-solara-forum/ -- http://us.toyotaownersclub.com/forums/forum/8-camry-club/ -- http://www.camryforums.com/forum/
