Yes it's fully back together and driving, I just have to make a couple small support brackets for the radiator pipe and the air intake and paint the exhaust I made for it. But is is running great so far. There is a huge difference in performance aswell

That's looking really good. Great to see you sorted the fuel system. That's pretty much the only way to do it with the fuel rails on this engine. It's the same as the factory setup except the regulator isn't in the tank. This FPR will allow for a boosted setup if that ever happens which the stock Camry system can't handle.

What's amazing is how it looks stock if you didn't know any better. Great job!

What place did you get the head kit from in the US and are you happy with quality? I'm just looking at same options to do my 100k service on a v6 Pajero.

Yeah I didn't really want to mess around with tapping the fuel rails so this was a simple(but expensive) solution

I got the cambelt kit through the states and it is all gates so good quality cost about $250 with belt water pump, tensioner and both bearings the seller was Sixity auto on eBay. the head gaskets I got through Toyota I couldn't believe they were only $140. And all the little seals I got off eBay and they seem to be fine

I've looked at the ebay sites but favour going with an auto parts supply company like Rockauto.com so I can get all parts required from one place which will save a considerable amount on shipping. Just not convinced the quality is good and if parts do not fit I'm faced with returning or buying elsewhere.
