I think something like this has been done on a tC, I can't recall.

I have no idea, but this same thought had crossed my mind as well.

There's not really a reason it shouldn't work, given time, money, and fabrication skills.

The big things are going to be motor mounts, wiring, and the ECU.

Tc1 will work with the swap. The xb2 is essentially a tc1 subframe so it should drop in.

Also, the v6 camary uses a different engine cradel than the 4cyl. I'm not sure exactly what is the differences but ill try to find out.

The V6 that was used in the swapped tC was the older 3.3 3MZ

From what I have been able to find, it has been done. Someone in Japan posted some pictures of their V6 Rumion. But I haven't been able to find anything as far as a build sheet.

Paul, a member on Scionlife and NewScionXB did some preliminary research on the wiring. Haven't been able to contact him yet. But he did mention the RAV4 as a possible candidate. It uses the same 2 plug computer and is mounted in same location. Camry computer is located under the dash on passenger side.

Wish it was that simple. Found 3 more plugs mounted in the fuse box that are tied into the engine harness. As well as the power cable from the alternator. And the plugs are different between the xB and the RAV4.

I bought a running, 07 V6 AWD RAV4 to make sure I have all the wiring bits.

What are the benefits to this engine swap? More oomph?

About 110 extra horsepower and 80 ft/lb of torque. Have only seen pics of 1 completed. Someone in Japan did it in a Rumion. Have been unable to find info on build. So I'm trying it as a challenge to myself.
