Default 2GR-FE Swap..2010 xB

I have for some time been researching a swap that would fit easily enough and would provide nice power and still be FWD. The only one I have seen done was on some guy's Instagram and he only posted photos of the swap going in and out and the final product. No help on how to do it.

This guy from this other forum had started and got a lot of useful info on the swap but is still missing a lot of info. If anyone could point me in the right direction or assist in any way possible all input would be greatly appreciated.

Let's talk 2GR-FE (V6) swap - Scion xB Forum

My main concern is the transmission. my current xB2 is automatic. now since swapping the motor will still need some modification would converting it to manual be easier in the process?
Or would it be more reasonable to keep it automatic and in that case which tranny would work best. Since the 2G comes in different models.

This is a project i will be doing in the near future and am just trying to get as much info. Once I have begun i will post exactly step by step from start to finish so others can do as well.

I mean that's why we are all here right?

Probably be easiest to ask Paul, they guy who's thread you linked. He's on here under the screen name k1114. He did quite a bit of research on doing the swap before he decided to go supercharged.

If you can find a rear clip from a Lotus Evora. This one is a little bent, but, I'm sure you get the concept:

I know this thread has sat dormant for a while, but was curious to see if anyone had started a project yet. I just purchased a running 2007 RAV4, V6 AWD as a potential donor vehicle.
Both the RAV4 and my 2010 xB are automatic, so I’ll stay with the auto. Currently trying to clean out my garage so I can put both vehicles on jack stands side by side.
I have only seen a few pics of a completed swap in Japan. But was unable to find any details.

That's the only done one I've seen as well. It should just be engine mounts, ECU, harness, and some sensors. Oh and you'll probably need to fab a mount to put a pulley in place of the power steering pump since we have electric steering. I'm sure something else will come up to make it more difficult though.

Greg, that is one plus of the 2007 model as it also has electric power steering. I went by the local dealership this morning to see if they had complete wiring diagrams for both vehicles. Struck out, they have gone paperless and even the Techs only have pictures and part numbers.

Driveway is still a muddy mess and garage is slowly getting emptied. And more rain on the way. Some preliminary measurements look promising.

Finally had a day without rain, but still a muddy mess here. Pulled the body harness plug (Small 60 pin plug) from ECM on the xB and made a list of wire colors and pin locations. Able to identify all but 3 wires. Made a list and drawing from the RAV4 as well. Now to find a wiring diagram for it. 32 wires on xB plug and 36 on RAV4 plug.

Default 2GR-FE Swap

2007 RAV4 Plug
2010 Scion xB plug

Pulled the small plugs from the cabin wiring to ECM. Drew out plug and wiring to each pin. Still trying to identify all the wires.

Still haven't identified wire #40.

Some similarities between the 2 wiring diagram. Not sure if Camry or Sienna or Lexus would be closer. This will take some more research.
