IIRC the mr2 has the same sweep as the camry rpm gauge

so 1 o'clock is ~5,000 rpm on both the mr2 and camry...

but the 1 o'clock position is ~7,000 rpm on the celica face



^MR2 gauge

thats an NA MR2 gauge, and just because the sweep is the same, its all about the signal that the gauge is receiving. a V6 is going to put out a different pulse over an I4

i had another slight hang up, i discovered that the AT and MT 1MZ have different rear headers, the AT that came with my engine has the header pointing right into where the shifter cables go for the E153. i ordered a MT header and i should get it monday. once i get the header i can complete the EGR tube. once thats done then it goes back in the car.

So you're keeping the a/c? Good deal. Cruise control as well?

I was hoping you would, just to show what goes into making the 1MZ swap a complete daily driver.

A/C is a must, cruise is nice to have. I hardly ever use cruise though. Still, can't wait to see it all done!
