  1. I have a 98 camry csi v6 auto. Low km good condition and drives quiet and smooth. To go back 20 years I was always a commodore / falcon buyer. Never considered the camry v6. Having matured, i have taken a likening to the camry v6 for its known reliability. Geez it drives well for a 20 year old car. My question remains would this camry outrun a similar 1998 AU model falcon i6 auto or a 1998 VT commodore v6? Why did i ignore these cars so long?

    Might make sense to check the under carriage of a toyota kluger.. that big body would need the extra torque especially awd model... i wonder if the merge pipe is squished like aurion??

    No engine check lights at all. This is not a header replacement. Only upgrade of merge pipe

    UpDATE I also have a 3.0 v6 camry. I checked it underneath. It dont have the squished pipe. It has a nice flowing merge. Im wondering why toyota intentionally had it squished up for aurion.

    How do we think our camry v6 98 model would go against a v6 commodore or 6 cylinder falcon of 97-00. Sure the camry has slightly lower power and torque but the camry is lighter a d being front wheel drive should put more of that power to tyres than a rear wheel drove.
  6. What made you buy a Camry?

    I actually bought my camry as i also owned an aurion. I thought geez they are good things (after owning many commodore/falcons). So i bought another. I never once considered a camry as opposed to my commodore or falcon but im a convert. Toyota make a simple car, keep it simple and reliable. Its so difficult to develop the reputation of toyota reliability but many car makers shoot themselves in the foot by releasing a dud model somewhere along the line. They never claw back the reputation. I think the ford falcon AU model from 98-2002 was the most ugly car ever built, in my opinion single handedly destroyed car manufacturing in australia. They just never clawed bacl from that attrocity.
  7. Bought a 98 camry csi v6

    $3k. Very good cond. Low km, loooong rego and new tyres all round. Also had timing belt done two years ago. No leaks on driveway at all and transmissions seems good. Car is basic in its appointments but it feels tight to drive, about as quiet as the aurion to be honest, steers wheel. Its old but it seems pretty solid.
  8. Bought a 98 camry csi v6

    Bought a 1998 camry csi v6. It has 98000km and in good condition. The 3.0 v6 is a nice engine. I like it as its a bare bones car with v6. Not many things on it to go wrong. Are this model considered reliable. ? I also have an aurion and bought the camry to share the load a little to keep km and maintenence down on the aurion.

    Yeah read that thread before but no real outcome / conclusion was stated? Mine is definately going better than standard. I think its not just the bigger collector that removes the squashed pipe restriction but also moving the join of pipes further back helps. Gasses cool as they progress from engine back through the exhaust, the dual pipes merge further back and into a less restrictive collector. Unfortunately I have not dyno tested the before and after gains but posted videos to evidence it goes pretty good and sounds completely stock.

    Mod the front engine pipe as i did. Solid gains. Where the pipes squish up

    Someone else get it done and report back with the results. Show my photo if exhaust shop scratches their head about it. One exhaust shop said to me, if you want a v8, buy a v8.

    As for the rest of he exhaust? We inspected it and didnt see much of a restriction at all down the back. Unless the rear mufflers are severely restricted inside, they didnt look bad at all. Its far more important to uncork the pipes closer to motor than back of car. The exhaust gasses are much hotter and flow faster the nearer to motor. As they go downstream they considerably slow and cool where restrictions will matter less. If anything you want it to step down in size slightly as it gets to the rear to maintain exhaust velocity. Also at the moment car sounds absolutely standard, changing rear mufflers could sound nasty or invite drone for little or no gains, especially if you leave front pipe all corked up.

    Totally agree about new tyres will reduce my axle tramp / wheel spin. But problem was far less before this mod. The standard configuration exhaust seems to limit torque just enough to provide a clean getaway. But this mod gives you benefit of extra torque on takeoff and after your getaway right through rev range. I will eventually get better tyres to get my takeoffs effective but as i also drive sedately 99% of the time, i will enjoy this mod moreso for the increased torque / more effortless performance and hopefully fuel economy benefit.

    And here is your 80-120.. notice it up top in the rev range. Pulls nice n hard over the stock car. 20180825_174018.mp4

    Another careful takeoff but traction control cuts in up top 20180825_174909.mp4
