You are better off finding a totaled 92-96 stick Camry and swapping parts.

For the V-6 swap, ditto on finding a total car.

For either swap, there are HOST of parts which individual would be time consuming and perhaps expensive to obtain.

-Ya i have located some parts cars.

-I would buy the entire car to do the swap.

-Just dont know what year to buy to do the swap on my 96 wagon.

-Can i buy the 93 V6 5 speed parts car and swap both engine and trans. as an OE bolt in?

To answer your last question. This depends on your definition of bolt in. Will the 93 engine and trans bolt in, yes. Will it be a simple swap, no!

Is this a US Camry?

The 92-96 US Camry is the same generation of Camry. They share the same platform.

However between 93 and 96 all engine options offered were slightly modified (improved or changed for emissions purposes). This means slightly different engine parts, a different ECU and wiring harness.

The US 1996 Camry V-6 used a 1MZ-FE engine. The 93 had two V-6 options. The 1MZ-FE and a 3VZ-FE. The 3VZ-FE was a popular engine however not in the US Camry. It was used thought for only one year in US Camry. You don't want this engine.

A few changes between 93 and 96 1MZ-FE engines are: The 93 uses a return flow fuel system, the 96 is one way flow. The 93 has a distributor/single coil system, the 96 uses individual coils and remote cam/crank sensor. The 96 engine has mounts for these sensors, the 93 does not. The 96 fuel system, engine wiring, computer etc are built to a 96 engine specs. The 93 engine will to be modified (if possible) to adapt to this.

The V-6 uses different axles.

The auto trans is electrically controlled by the computer. This is for gear changes and torque converter lockup. The computer is designed for this.

If you change to a stick, the computer will be looking for the solenoid feedback (resistance) and RPM change feedback. If it doesn't get these the check light may come on.

You might read the post at the link below referencing the trans swap for a 95 and the Toyotanation.com website.

Ideally the best way is to find a totaled 1996 stick, V-6 Camry. Then it would be a direct swap of parts. The V-6 also has rear disk brakes and larger front disks plus a few other changes.
