Hi all

First time poster as well here after trawling through the site looking at 2zr threads :). I'm from Australia and it would seem nigh impossible to get my hands on the required brackets from a MT XD for a 2zr conversion. I've messaged every person wrecking a Scion XD on ebay only to be told they don't keep them.

Does anyone have an available source for these? I've also tried to purchase them new, but only one is showing as potentially being in stock - the RH one.

I got mine from the Toyota dealership, but I see full sets of mounts for sell on eBay. If you cant find used mounts you sometimes have to buy new ones.

Yeah the mounts or isolators should be pretty easy to get a hold of, even in Aus. The parts I'm struggling to find though are the ones outlined in red. Based on the reading I've done, I need all 3 of these as well don't I?

Technically you can get away with only using the right hand side mount and isolator.

Do you have a lb or sedan?

It would be a hatch.

Or am I confused... If I buy the XD dogbone and the XD gearbox isolators, will they bolt to the Yaris equivalent of the parts I've outlined in red?

Yes technically they will bolt up albeit with some force of a pry bar and an extra hour and cursing to get the bolt through.

Based on my extensive experience of using all of the different types of mounts (xd and yaris) mate the proper bracket with its proper isolator to ensure ease of install.

The only difference is the xd mounts/isolators will place the engine a bit lower, slightly further away from the firewall and the way Toyota engineered it to sit. However using yaris mounts/isolators will also work as that is Tom's current set up I believe.

Either way you will need the right hand side mount and isolator from an xd as the yaris one will not work with the 2zr. The other two that both bolt to the trans case are fine to run either xd or yaris. If you run all xd mounts then it's recommended to run xd shift cables as the yaris ones are shorter and you risk snapping them

thanks tmontague. Appreciate the advice.

I'll keep hunting for a full set of brackets. Sounds like that's the cleanest solution.
