Has anybody put a turbo in a camry? Is this even possible? What would have to do to a stock engine?

Mostly, it's not worth it. More cost effective to simply buy a V6 if you have a 5S-FE.

That is a nice Post Brian! :cool:

Turboing the V6 would be a BIG job.

Would love to see it done, but unless you can find someone that makes a manifold, there is going to be a lot of custom work going on.
You need to think about single or twin turbo as well, and even finding space for it will be interesting.

It seems more difficult to turbo a transverse engine than a longitudinal one. I think there's less space under the hood.

Generally FWD, Transverse cars have a lot less space, but there are plenty of exceptions.
Generally the larger the car though, the more room there is.
A 90s Civic for example as heaps of space.

Cars like the Camry and the Accord, that come with 4cyl and V6 options are a bit different.
The 4cly has too much space around it, while the V6 doesn't have enough.
The Camry is a special problem because the engine is leaned back in the engine bay, with the aft cylinder bank head facing the firewall.

looking at my v6 engine bay f the camry, i dont see anywhere it could fit, not without really hacking up the engine and the bay itself. but if money isnt an issue, and lets be honest i am sure that it is, you can do whatever you want. bring it to a mod shop in your area, tell them what you want and give them lots of money to do it.
