Default 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:

minor bodywork
BC coilovers
alignment
gauge cluster repair - damn those needles
rims + tires (SSR Werfen GT-03s 3 piece forged 18")
all the window regulators *facepalm*
re-tint
55W HIDs
foglight fix
taillight bulb fix
steering wheel change - want something more grippy or VIPish, any suggestions?

valve cover leak fix
sparkplugs, wires, distributor

list goes on and on LOL

and to do s/c:


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.

LOL! finding a S/C is always the best 'start'. Its OEM so its PnP on your motor [cars from pre-99 that is...]

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.

still much more to spend

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
