here is the final product! It runs awesome and sounds mean!







Here is what I did for fuel. I changed out the stock fuel filter for a 2000 Camry/Solara filter. As you see it has the quick disconnect that the 1MZ rails have. so that makes it plug and play.



Here is the fuel pump assembly, to turn the system into a non-return style, you put a T in the feed line and run it through this regulator that is inside the Camry/Solara fuel tank.

This is awesome, another v6 in the books. I agree, you should open up shop as a v6 swap specialist in a 6gc lol. Thanks for detailing the non return setup, much appreciated. Looks great as well! Time to post some videos

what ill probably do is cut off the connections at the compressor, weld new aluminum pipe and bend to fit, then bolt down the connections.

This swap was a big job because it included converting auto to manual. I think if i was doing this in a manual my labor fee will be 1600-1800. that will include pulling old engine, modifying trans to work, the wiring harness, and fixing issues.

that doesnt include parts and or fabrication of exhaust or the engine mount.

If I could say I spend around 5000 for the parts maybe less and paying smaay that's about right but honestly it was worth every penny even though I still owe him some funds but slow and steady I will make sure to get that money in his hands its just amazing to see the effort he put into my car you won't get such tedious work from a regular mechanic you will pay the same amount maybe more but with out the concerns of doing it right and of course he loves Toyota just like we all do so I feel very comfortable leaving "Cecilia" with him it looks like he's been taking good care of my cat. Oh yea by the way the only reason I said 5gran is bc of actually had to straighten put the chassis in my car and remove some dents and other body work that I don't really remember so I'm sure it will be less then what I am spending
