I was in an auto wrecker last week and noticed an AWD badge on the rear end of an 88 Camry. I looked under the hood and found a V6. Up until then, I had no idea this car existed...

I learned that some Camrys were even given 3SGE's, although rarely.

Anyway, I'm not sure if this has been addressed before, but has anyone tried the AWD V6 Camry engine (2VZ-FE) and drivetrain into a 4th Gen Celly before?

Does that V6 bolt up to All-Trac trannys?

Good grief! Imagine the build up potential.

A V6 All-Trac has been built before. I believe the Highlander V6 and transfer case were used. the guy that did it did a really nice build thread; I might be on an All-Trac forum.

To my knowledge the alltrac camry never came in a v6. did the car have a rear diff/driveshaft?

"In 1988, an all-wheel drive system dubbed All-Trac was introduced and a 2.5 litre 118 kW (158 hp) JIS V6 engine were added as options for the first time. The V6 was fuel-injected with 24 valves, and dual overhead camshafts, much like the upgraded 96 kW (129 hp) JIS four-cylinder engine. In Japan there was a GT model using the older 3S-GE engine as used on the Celica."...

YEAH! It's as close to a real life swap as you can get without actually doing it...

Although they do allow for a lot of crazy stuff, like S2000 engine and RWD swapped into an 88 CRX... but don't allow Audi 1.8 T's into old VW's which is such a common swap.

I love Forza

While it is true that toyota offered a "high output" v6 option as well as an allitrac option from 88-91 I don't believe there was ever a v6 alltrac made from the factory. I've personally owned 2 alltrac camrys and have actually traveled cross country scowering these rare cars down. Never have I seen a v6 alltrac... Not saying I don't believe you, but it would be easier to believe you found 6 unicorns drinking from the holy grail. Please post some pictures!

Unicorns don't drink, they absorb.

I may have lied. I got excited about the AWD badge and assumed it was a V6 without actually looking under the hood. (Hey, it was -30* in Feb when I posted that) Sorry.

You sound like a guy who knows those cars so I'll def take your word for it.

Rare hey? I should've bought it.. :(
