Default 2zz engine swap
I know its been done before, but does anybody know how much it costs to swap in a 2zz with a manual trany conversion (including all parts and service)? Sorry if this is posted somewhere already. I'm just curious.

for a straight forward swap. probably no more than 5k... with a trans conversion... well.. ii think you mite as well trade for a manual or a corolla xrs .. cause it can get very expensive and not worth it.

ok, cuz I can get a 2zz JDM engine with about 40k miles on for about $1500. I could keep it a auto but I really want a manual.

for that much its pretty cheap... ii heard the corolla 1zz manual trans can fit to the 2zz engine ... maybe a 1zz auto can .. maybe ur trans can? ... if not .. put a corolla 1zz trans on it .. but with all that .. your almost there to just turbo it or doing some good mods.

I know right? I cant wait. But honestly though. I plan on working on this car for about another year because I want to give it to my little brother for his 16th birthday. He just turned 15 today so just one more year till I have to decide.
But after all this money I'm dumping into it I think I might just give him a little gift card lol

well I wont give it to him. I would sell it to him at a discount. My family already said they will help him get a car so I figured by then I maybe ready for another project so I might get a tc or something. Its still up in the air though. I might sell it to him as is for about 8k or so. But if I get this engine I'm soooooo keeping it. lol

a 2zz swapped xd is nice, but I would prefer the 2.5L motor that the 2011 tc comes with.
180 hp and 173 tq with a non-lift motor pushing this 2600lbs box.. Why didn't toyota/scion add this motor or atleast the older model 2.4L to the rs 3.0 ? I would be happy even if my rs 3.0 is auto with this motor.

If I was on a wish trip, I would want the new 2.5L TC motor with Greddy turbo in an AWD Matrix 5 speed. They don't offer either (2.5L or manual) for the AWD Matrix. Well, you know what they say "Wish in one hand..."
