    Would a camry V6 3.0 auto outrun a falcon / commodore?

    The 4 speed auto is no slouch. Mine seem to go 0-100km/h is high 7s.. Thats gotta be competitive with a falcodore

    Weird idle phenomena??

    Update.. Has not done it again. I noticed the air box was not closed properly. Where is clips in wasnt in so letting in hot air. It could be just a mixture of cold air and very hot underhood air going in concurrently? Ive fitted it up and checked tightened all intake pieces. Perfect idle for a few days.. drove 4-5 hours the other day and perfect

    Weird idle phenomena??

    I did fill it with 95 octane fuel about 20 mins beforehand. Usually use 98 octane. Shouldnt be a problem though as they are ok even at 91 octane. I have cleaned throttle body etc about 500km ago. I did again this morning but its all sweet now. Weird phenomena Anyone think it could be air cond? Car was stop start in traffic a fair bit at the time. Could it heat up too much? It just was all over the place with the idle. Up and down hunting from 500rpm to about 1000rpm.

    Weird idle phenomena??

    I have a 1998 camry v6 auto csi. It just clicked over 100,000km.. I was taking a photo of the odometer at 99999... when it clicked over to 100,000km it all of a sudden had a crazy idle??? Bang on 100,000km it started. It was all over the place idle from 500rpm to 1000rpm.. up and down.. engine was shaking.. I had air cond on a time. I turned it off, turned car on and off but still did it. Drove car about 2-3km and it was driving ok but idle was shocking. I stopped into petrol station and was looking under hood. Undid air box and i could hear it sucking, stopping, sucking again.. I returned to drivers seat and held revs to about 3000rpm. Then revved it to 5500rpm or 6000rpm.. Then all of a sudden idle was right.. perfect again.?? Stopped and started and all good. By this time car had 100,003km on odometer. Car ran perfect for rest of day and i did another 95km. Weird phenomena as it hit 100,000km exactly?? It went crazy.. Does computer reset or something as it reaches certain points over the odometer? Or just coincidence?

    Would a camry V6 3.0 auto outrun a falcon / commodore?

    But front wheel drive is kniwn to out more of the engine power to the wheels. Rwd transmission and diff takes away more power. So the commodore and falcon engine power on paper be alot closer than it seems
  10. 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?

    Aurion performance mod.

    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.

    Bought a 98 camry csi v6

    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.

    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.
