Update! EEng's ES300 Build. Time to make it Legen..wait for it..Dary!
I've been a long time member of toyotanation, I had a 94 Camry 4cyl w/ slushbox but i managed to swap in a 3VZ 5spd setup and did lots of R&D and made it the only supercharged 3VZ camry in the world. Due to some unfortunate turns of events, I had to part out my 94 Camry that I built from ground up.
However, it seems like the tide has turned and I managed to get my hands on a
92 ES300 5spd just a few weeks ago. I'll be dumping all the parts I had on the camry over to my ES.
Here's a pic of the ES when i just got it:
here's a teaser of what I had on my camry. it'll be even better for the ES i think.
I plan on twincharging the ES eventually.
here are the things I have to do before the S/C can go on though:
gauge cluster repair - damn those needles
rims + tires (SSR Werfen GT-03s 3 piece forged 18")
all the window regulators *facepalm*
taillight bulb fix
steering wheel change - want something more grippy or VIPish, any suggestions?
full exhaust system - already have the parts from my previous custom full exhaust
standalone AEM EMS - using a honda box + jumper switches to rid of the AFM
for MAF conversion
700+CC injectors - large capacity for twincharge
FPR + modded fuel rail to delete Cold start injector
fuel pump - already have the 255lpr whinebro
LOL, i'm looking at like 10k to spend already....
it should be fun!
anyway, here's the last good pic of my camry before i parted it out piece by piece and sent it to the junkyard.

Good luck with your build.
What kind of numbers were you getting?
i was getting aprox 250whp with a 4psi pulley. I was gonna upgrade to a 6psi pulley to shoot for 280whp, but the build ended there. I'm gonna pick it up where I left it since I still have most of the parts.
anyway, here's an update
bought the following things:
SSR rims Werfen GT03 18"
Nitto NT05 tires
BC racing coilovers made for camry but will fit ES300
replaced the brake shoes and e-brake cables.
I'm really excited to see this man. rly clean build on the camry's engine bay. but scrap the aftermarket projector idea next time will ya?
Those headlights you see on the camry were handmade by myself. I did a projector retrofit on the depo clear Lens headlights and Mercedes E55 projectors plus 55watt 4300k hid kit. It was by no means some off the shelf eBay headlights
