RE: 1985 Toyota Camry LE Engine swap to 200 HP.

Besides changing the engine…
What kind of additional mods would I have to make if I swapped from 2s-ELC (2.0) to 3s-GE (2.0)?
What Kind of additional mods would i have to make if I swapped from 2s-ELC (2.0) to 5s-FE (2.2)?

What kind of shop should I be looking for to do these modifications?
The local dealers won't even touch the car because the EOM parts are not available.
I realize I will need a shop that does custom work.

Any help appreciated..

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Although the engine computer used in 1985 engines is rudimentary, the fact that it exists means that you will have to completely change out the vehicle’s wiring harness. Those harnesses are no longer available, of course, which means that you will have to obtain the computer and custom fabricate a harness using the factory wiring diagram. You will probably have to change the suspension in the vehicle, too, due to the difference in weight. Two hundred horsepower is a lot for the A140E transmission. You should verify the allowed maximum torque for that transmission and see if it really will work. Whenever you change engine sizes, the principal issue is the weight and the change in the suspension and the fact that, particularly on OBD-II cars, you have to change out the vehicle’s electrical system which is vastly more complicated, and prone to problems, than dealing merely with an engine.

Toyota Camrys have a great reputation for reliability and longevity, and swapping the engine with an MZRE V6 is a great way to save money over buying a new car. Like any engine swap, replacing the engine on your Camry requires the right tools and knowledge.
Camry has a transverse engine configuration, so you have to find a V8 unit of similar configuration for a swap. Otherwise it will be a very complex and hard swap, not to mention expensive.
Also, the 2JZ is for rear-wheel drive cars, while Camry`s are usually front-wheel drive. All this is to say: it`s possible, but it will be time-consuming and expensive. If this is your dream project and you`ve got money to burn, go for it. Otherwise, consider a different modification.

Depending on the reason behind the swap, you can replace the old engine with an identical one that`s in better running condition or with one that offers better performance and reliability. Either way, engine swaps make a lot of sense for someone rebuilding their classic car.
It`s definitely possible to put a new engine in an older vehicle, but you`ll want to check that it`s compatible with components of the car like the transmission. If it works, replacing the engine will make your car more powerful and more reliable.

I have a 2002 toyota camry LE engine wich i want to use on a 2004 toyota camry XLE .is my 02 toyota camry engine compatible ?
ANSWER : Hi there. Assuming that both engines are the same size, the compatibility of "fitting" should be OK. However, since this is a service we don’t offer, we’re not best suited to provide the best advice on this. I can tell you that a common problem have with replacing motors is communication with the ECU. In most cases, it will require reprogramming by a specialist in order for all the systems to work correctly.

I have a 2010 camry. I just recently replaced the engine with a 2014 camry engine. Now I have Four engine lights on. I replaced on
ANSWER : If you swapped the engine from a vehicle that is 4 years newer than the car is then you are going to have electrical and sensor incompatibilities that may not be able to be fixed by just a few sensor replacements. There were many changes in computer and emission related items between 2010 and 2014 engines. I would recommend having a mechanic like one from YourMechanic come to you and compare the two engines to isolate the possible differences and see if the problem can be fixed.

Can front wheel drive car engine power rear wheel drive
ANSWER : Anything is possible with enough engineering. The changes you are looking at would take major structural changes and would definitely not be an easy job. You could possibly consult a manufacturing engineer to get more details on how this could actually be carried out and whether it would be feasible.

Engine swap details needed. I need to know if the swap will fit.
ANSWER : Hi there. When it comes to swapping engines for your vehicle, what you can do is check all of the engine mounts and transmission mounts and make sure that they will work. If the mounts are a little off but there is room, then you may have to retro fit a custom mount. Check the length of the engine and the transmission assembly together. Make sure that the assembly is the same length. It may be okay if it’s a few inches shorter or longer, however, it cannot exceed 3 inches or the assembly will not fit. There has to be room for the engine to move around. Also, keep in mind, the CV shafts may not match up to the transmission and wheel hubs, especially if the transmission is shorter or longer. If you need further assistance with swapping your engine with another engine, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.

Looking to swap and be road legal for 88 4runner 22re to increase HP for offroading. what is the best engine upgrade for this?
ANSWER : Hi There,
You are correct in that the 3.0 V6 Toyota motor that superseded the 22RE motor does not significantly increase power if you are interested in pushing much larger off road tires. A common performance upgrade for the 22RE motor is a supercharger by LC Engineering or there are also many options for turbos that make a significant horsepower difference. I would suggest looking into a turbo upgrade as these are much more dependable (which is the main thing the 22RE motor is known for). Depending on the route you go will of course determine the number of hours and expense needed to make the swap.

Hi I own a 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer ES, I would like to know if I can do an engine swap with an EVO engine
ANSWER : Hi there. When it comes to completing an engine swap, there are so many additional changes you’d have to make in order for this to work. For starters, you’d have to replace the transmission, driveaxles, fuel system, cooling system, ignition and beyond. Can it be done – Yes. But it would cost a lot of money and take a lot of time.

How do you replace the rear & side engine mounts without lifting out the engine? & how do you lift the engine out?
ANSWER : Hi…thank you for your questions. If required in the application, a portable engine support bar is used to support an engine during mount replacement. The support bar has lifting capability as well so that the mount can be unloaded and removed. If a particular repair application requires a "crane" (complete engine removal for instance), such are portable these days in any event. With regard to the exhaust system repair, mechanics use ramps to gain access. Six ton portable jack stands will safely support a car two feet into the air which provides more than enough access to repair or replace any exhaust system component. If you desire replacement of the mounts, please refer to YourMechanic’s motor mount replacement service page. For exhaust leaks, please use the exhaust system inspection/repair page page. Once on each of those service pages, if you click on "Get a Quote" and enter your vehicle information (year, make, model) you can obtain cost info and schedule the service. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
