2005 camry v6 mods

After reading different forums on how to enhance my 2005 v6 camry, one article discussed the ecu.
The ecu can be munipulated by different paramiters.
1. intake
2. exhaust
3. And so on/
My thought why not change the temputature of the engine, cold intake makes more horsepower. why not change the thermostat,
There are 2 different stats avail, for the 1mz-fe engine
The camry offers a 82c. thermo/ the lexus with 1mz-fe offers a 78c. thermo.
Can you insert the 78c. in the camry to trick the ecu into running cooler , thus changing the par, of the ecu to deliver more power.
Can anyone answer this?
Thanks

The reason why cooler air is better for performance is because cooler air is denser thus containing more oxygen. More oxygen allows more fuel to be mixed thus more power.

Tricking your computer to think that cooler air is being inputted in your engine will cause your engine to run fuel rich with minimal increase in power since physically no additional oxygen is being supplied. You'll get more carbon deposits this way too.

Best thing to do is program your ECU to optimize the A/F ratio (the ECU determines this), not by tricking the temperature sensors or O2 sensors in effort to affect the A/F ratio.

since the camry is space limited under the hood, i remember someone said he is going to attempt/try to do a custom cai extension pipe with the injen sri, but not sure if it's accomplished/finished yet...
however, he said he is/was going to move things around like the battery to somewhere else (to the trunk)

I owned a 99 camry, and honestly they are NOT great cars to modify, there are practically zero decent parts and the ones that are out are way over priced, also the HP gains are minimal at best, i had a catback exhaust and an intake on mine(SRI) it got me a combined 6 whp. lame in my opinion, if you have the V6 look into the TRD Supercharger, THAT is definitley worth it.

Don't bother changing the intake on a Gen 5 Camry, the stock design is WELL-designed. It takes in air right from the front grill, and it has a two tubes to the filter. One opens up at higher RPM to allow for more airflow...and it stays closed at lower RPM to help low end torque. A K&N drop in filter may help it breathe better.

yeah they don't even make headers or a ypipe for the 1MZ or 3MZ. JP performance makes them for the gen 4 so it might not even fit properly.

I'm thinking about relocating the battery too. It would open a spot to make a cold air intake.

i dunno if its just me or not, but when my trans shifts, i could feel it pretty good.
i guess it's just me driving it for awhile but, i dunno. it doesn't shake the car but i could feel it in the seat of the car.
