2zzge conversion


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I want a very light car, looks are not important.

All the mechanical components are catered for.

Anyone know which cars are best suited for the conversion?

The ae92 corolla im considering at the moment but unsure if it will fit, due to height issues.

Thats with creating a custom manifold.

The ae82 should fit ?

Are you certain the height issues of the engine are not a problem ?

The engine will fit, AE82 is an easier fit for steering/driveshaft/exhaust clearnace. The sump is ~30mm lower from the crank centerline than with a 4a so a bash plate is a good idea if you run the car low.

So the AUDM 2zzge will have the same layout as the jdm 2zzge ?

In that aricle they use the JDM 2zzge.

Fielder half shafts, down pipe, transaxle mounts, selector cables and starter. '92+ MR2 N/A drive shafts will be used in place of the Fielder drive shafts

So if i have a 2zzge half cut all i need is a 92+ MR2 N/A driveshafts ?

Would the brakes from the 2zzge stivo half cut be usable for the mr2 ?

It looks like a awesome car to do it in.

Light which i want plus looks a good track car once complete.

Looks quite hard abit of customisation and boring and drilling required.

there's a 2ZZ-GE going into my AW11

there's also one going into an AW11 in WA

Got more info on your build ?

Like you using the 2zzge from stivo ?

mine will not be done terribly soon as I don't have the space or finances right now.

I'm hoping to use a celica rather than a corolla for the conversion though because of it's compatibility with the Apexi PFC.

The process could be sped up if

1) the stivo sells soon

2) the engine in the MR2 dies (doesn't look like happening soon though as it's a pretty good engine from what I can tell).

Im plan on doing the conversion using a stivo wreck.

Is there a mr2 club or something which made you find out the conversion ?

Or did you find the other people doing the conversion threw your friends ?

As much advice as possible, would be appreciated :)

I've wanted to do the conversion for about 3 years.

Originally I wanted to put a 2ZZ-GE into an old school celica but it too much hassle fabricating mounts if you don't know someone.

The MR2 was the next option.

Then I found the guy in the US that had performed it.

Then I finally decided to go through with and and step 1 was achieved... I bought my MR2

After talking to people on Toymods about it more people have become interested as it's easier (in some ways, but more of a challenge in others) then a 3S conversion. It's also keeping with the spirit of the AW11 in that it produces a lightweight performance car where as the 3S adds a few kgs, but you can get nuts HP out of them though.

There are a few threads on Toymods for this, but the best ones are those written by the guy in the US... google and you shall find... ;)

I reckon MR-S, that's what people do in japan, hell a lot faster.
