Default 93 Camry 4-cyl to v6 conversion?

Iíd like to do a conversion from a 4-cyl to a v6, but first Iíd like
to know if anyone has tried this before. If not, then how hard will it
be to do and how much will it cost? I was considering just putting a
chevy small block in there, but then i decided that would take to much
time, effort, and money. Any suggestions on where to get a v6 that
will fit under the hood without much work?

Much cheaper and easier to sell the 4 and buy the 6. For a '93, some
very good values are available.
Some issues:
Springs/ struts
transaxle
engine computer/ sensors

Here's an interesting somewhat unrelated article to give you an idea
describing switching from automatic to manual transmission:

Well, had I not already put $2k in the car after I bought it for a new
radiator, new brake master cylinder, new battery, and new alternator,
I would definitely consider selling the car and buying myself some
other car with more power, perhaps a truck. Seeing as it seems that it
will be time consuming and much too difficult to accomplish for myself
alone, I may as well just find a super/turbocharger and new exhaust
for the I-4 thatís in there now. Any suggestions on where i can find a
turbocharger that would work with the I-4? I havenít been able to find
one from TRDusa.com, a local Toyota dealer, or any other dealer on the
internet...
