No, Leo, its possible but for example if you bought motor mounts for your Corolla this is the set for engine and transaxle 1993 Corolla

You will need to move them, fabricate, and it's would be costly to the point of being prohibitive I have never known anybody to do it, and not sure there is even enough room in engine bay to fit the V6 in. You will need ECU and everything from donor car also. Sorry my friend.

Went looking for more information and found Because the VZ was originally for pickup truck and SUV use, the 3VZ-FE is a very tall motor. To make the engine fit in engine bays, Toyota tilted the motor towards the firewall. This "tilt" is so severe (~15 degrees) that getting access to the rear bank, for example to change spark plugs is nearly impossible without first removing the intake plenum. I was looking for a way to to make it work, and the more I researched the more problems I found with this.

Mr. ToyotaNut is all over this one- if you feel like making hot rods, ditch the Corolla, go get a copy of Hot Rod magazine, and read up on how it is done

Good morning jam...maybe I should change my username to CorollaNut. Even though I do have a Ford, it's 40 years old and I know a lot more about Corollas and Toyotas...I have really studied up about my car, including some very dry technical stuff. But I actually enjoy that reading


But I'm still trying to find out why I got docked 600+ reputation points..and I'm not alone
