1996 Toyota Camry V6LE 3.0L V6 - Lexus Engine from North America
A Camry with a Lexus engine
The Toyota Camry needed a new Alternator at around 108,500 miles. The battery needed to be replaced for the first time at 105,000 miles. At around 80,000 miles a truck was driving in front of the vehicle when the truck's tires blew. The owners put on newer more expensive rims due to running over the trucks tires. The Camry also needed a new stainless steel exhaust system due to the damages at 80,000 miles. Other than the problems that we have inflicted on it, the car runs great.
This car runs great. It is quiet and sounds like new at 109,100 miles. I am actually planning on putting new exhaust heads on it and making two exhaust pipes, instead of one. I am also planning to put new intake heads in the engine. When I have the heads out I am also going to re-bore the engine and put new pistons in, making it a 3.3L V6. After making the engine stronger, I plan on supercharging and putting Nitrous Oxide in it. When all my plans are finished, I will be left with a 500 horsepower Supercharged Toyota Camry with a re-bored 3.3L V6 Lexus Engine and Nitrous Oxide. The car will be able to do about 9.5 seconds in the quarter mile.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

How do you plan on doing 9.5 seconds in the 1/4 mile with a front drive, passenger car? It doesn't matter how much horsepower you have, how are you going to put that down on the pavement? doesn't make sense to me, but I could be wrong.
