My 1zz in car is gone. I purchased the Detroit Nasty 2zz for refurb while still being able to drive the vehicle, at very lacking power and high oil consumption. I think in its current condition it should be classified by the EPA and a Diesel hybrid.....lol.
1zz is GREAT engine unless pre-cat or ring issues and go .....?....300K miles.
And there is my dilemma. Rebuild or buy 1zz and install, or go for the SONG. I was a big fan of F1 racing before the v6 turbo's.....they DRONE. I want a SHRIEK!
Thanks for you post. I can always go back and rebuild the 1zz.....if block is in tolerance.
