Can't wait for one of them to get totaled in a rear end collision so I can get the engine.

yeah, gokys mount should work with this engine, but the exhaust manifolds wont. they have the exhaust ports like Honda's R18 engines, one exhaust port per bank. its kinda odd to look at lol.

direct injection should satisfy the people that keep asking about putting fse heads on an fe engine to get it.

That should be fun to tune up. I can't wait

Hmm, so can I make my S/c manifold so that I can swap out the intake flange easily?

Suddenly I have something else to plan for in the future.

Marc, an recommendations for custom intake gasket material?

The intake gasket material really depends on what you're looking to do and how complicated you need to get. for simple flat stuff i tend to like cork. I also like to machine in groves and use o-rings (round or open cord). for surfaces machined flat enough just some permatex gasket sealer and a sheet of regular printer paper to hold it does a great job. i'd be happy to provide better input than this but you'll have to show me what you're talking about first.

I think it's great that the 2GR continues to live on in various guises.

I just can't believe the Camry is so near to 300hp. It'll be slightly underrated using 87-octane though.

And the Camry, of all vehicles, now has double wishbone front suspension for MY2018. Strange times indeed.

They want to finally ground it to the ground! I'd love to see a heads-up track race between a modified 3SGTE MR2 and a 2007+ V6 Camry
