    I just picked up a 2ZZ to get ready for my swap that is said to have 45k miles on it. I pulled the valve cover to throw new lift bolts and a gasket on it and I noticed this scoring predominantly on one lobe of the exhaust cam. You can just barely feel it when you run your finger over it. My...

    So, today I was driving through town. I was pretty much coasting down a hill when I noticed that there was a greater than usual amount of engine braking happening. I put my foot down, and all that happened was I began to coast as if I were in neutral. I pulled over and the engine immediately...

    Hello everyone, I am having issues getting my 2zz swapped car to rev all the way to it's intended rev limit. Lift does kick in, from around 6,000 to 7,000 with the limit being hit at 7,000. I know the car is warmed up, verified with coolant temp read through OBD port, and I took off both OCV...

    Hello all. I have a 2002 Spyder that was 2ZZ swapped just over a year ago. A local-ish shop did about 80% of the work, but when they couldn't complete it after 5 months(!) of waiting and with all of the uncertainty over lockdowns at the time - we trailered it home and my brother-in-law and I...

    I am a relatively new spyder owner, and purchased someone else's 2ZZ swap. It is apparently from an 03 Celica with ~30-40k miles. MWR sourced. For the first few weeks, it was great. Then it needed a thermostat (was sticking). Then it burst a coolant plug - the red stuff gets expensive! Through...

    Hello, I’m hoping you all could shed some light on valve cap adjustments. I’ve recently rebuilt a 2zz for my MR2, (2000 celica gts motor). I had no idea that the valve stem caps were adjustments for valve clearance. I understand the formula and procedure to find the correct valve caps. My...

    Hey Guys, I found a Corolla 1.8 TS E12 on the internet. According to the seller the car was doing just fine and suddenly the connecting rod bearing gave up at (110.000km/68.000miles). He opened up the oil pan to take a look at the damage that was made and told me that one of them was damaged and...

    All right, I tried and failed to find an answer to this so here we are with a new thread to clog your feed. Any help would be appreciated. I've got a 2zz MR2 and am having an issue with VVT not engaging during it's first gear run. While in first gear, the car will not engage VVT and bogs...

Things I have tried: -Checked for leaks with a smoke test -Cleaned MAF sensor -Replaced both oxygen sensors that are used by the celica ECU...

    I for 2 years lived in Alaska for college. While up there I bought what is my current daily driver the 2008 6MT Fj cruiser, and while I love her I now live in Charolette NC for the Nascar Technical Institute. As you may know, tahe Fj does NOT get the best MPG especially as mine currently sits. I...

    Hello As of 2 days ago I am a proud and happy owner of a 2zz swapped MR2 Spyder with 6 speed transmission from Corolla TS. Car is an absolute blast to drive. But it bothers me that it has an open differential, so here's my question - what LSD can I buy for this car? Generally prefer to stay...

    Looking to build a track/autocross MR-S 2ZZ swap but can’t decide between doing a 6 speed with no turbo or a 5 speed with a turbo. If I turbo it, I would probably keep it right around 220whp. I can’t afford to do both right now, but maybe down the road. Which option would be the best and why...
