Default Hello Camry 1997 stuck inside a MR2

Hello I hope you don't mind me asking your advice, as my car is more of a Camry 1997 then an MR2.

It is actually the first MR2 fitted with a Camry 1-MZ engine and automatic gearbox.

I have also just fitted the first "flappy paddle gear shift change" to the Camry auto box on a standard ECU in a MR2.

My next stage is fit a M62 supercharger (that I have) to the Camry engine.

Has anyone had any experience in doing this?

Michael

Just a couple of photographs to show the Camry 1-mz engine and automatic gearbox in an MR2.

Thank you for the information,

The 1-MZ V6 in a lightweight MR2 is really sporty, you can imagine what it will be like with the TRD M62 supercharger.

Lots of Camry 1-MZ and 3VZ engines are finding new homes in MR2's in the UK.

The MR2 Turbo drive shafts fit straight on to the 1-MZ
