Hey everyone! I go by OJ, I live in Melbourne, and I currently own a 1999 MCV20R Camry Touring. I’ve had it for a few years and I gotta say, these V6 Camrys are awesome to drive, despite most people my age (I’m 22) suggesting they’re slow as hell. Have another MCV20R that’s been in the family for a long time, so when it came to buying my own daily, there really was no other contender. Anyway, I’ve recently gotten hooked on the idea of doing the old Camry up a bit and make it look a bit sleeker and nicer, so expect some questions about things like wheel fitment and swapping parts over and things of that nature. I’ve also recently gotten interested in getting a Z20 Soarer as a project/weekend type car. Big thing with this idea is to engine swap a 1JZ into it. So I’ll probably be making posts asking about specific specs and things I might need to know in order to do the swap properly. The Soarer is more of just an idea at the moment and I really want to make sure I’ll be doing it right. I hope I can count on this groups collective knowledge to make sure I don’t butcher it 😂. Looking forward to talking with you all.
Bought this car last July through j-spec imports, after missing out on 2 or 3 we scored this one for well under budget. Car arrived in Australia around the 27th of September. Compliance is usually 2 weeks but due to the amount of crowns coming in they ran out of plates for these for 2014. 4 months passed and it finally got its plates on the 27th of January!. Was regoed that week and have been driving it daily ever since haha. so a run down on the car when i got it: 1JZ-GTE 2.5L Straight Six turbo A340E 4Speed Auto Touchscreen Jap satnav / cd stacker Black Cloth interior Sunroof Athlete Premium 17 x 7 and 17 x 7.5 alloy wheels Final Konnexion Coilovers Mods so far: HKS Air Filter Bosch IK20 Spark Plugs Eagle Leads Clazzio ECT-R Premium Leather seat covers in black Junction Produce Scaras 19 x 9.5 +23 and 19 x 10.5 +29 Fuel filter etc. New Radiator Mods to be installed: Airrex Air struts Accuair E-Level setup with touchpad 2x Hoosier 3Gal tanks Viair 444cc Twin pack Compressors Moonface Front Upper arms with shortened balljoint for maximum lows Ikeya Formula Rear adjustable LCA's TRD Castor Arm Bushes To buy: New tie rods/tie rod ends New Wheel Bearings all round Tablet to install into the dash Tomei Dump Pipe Exhaust Trust Intercooler Auto Shift kit Full Auto Service Diff Bushes/Fluids 150k Major Service Kit (just to be safe) New Balljoints At the docks: Stored it at home while waiting for compliance: Day of Rego: Wheel Test fit: Goodies to be installed: As it sits now:
