By any chance that you can post up any write up that you have on the 1zz swap? Trying to get as much info that I can so that I can get a quote to get this done on my xA. So far I have a budget of $7k.

Because then it would be a proper car. ;)

The yaris would have a much bigger following if it had a proper set up like that.

Unfortunately its an ass dragger.

ehh, i agree and disagree with that one. look at the mini cooper S.. fwd, handles like a dream for only 180hp.

at autocross, side by side with a mini cooper.. I was taken back how close the wheel base looked. Yaris is just disigned to be eco friendly, not a corner hugger

I recognize that! That's a motorcycle engine design. Cycle World did an article on it. Called the Motus MST-R
http://www.cycleworld.com/2011/07/22...pe-first-ride/

161 hp isn't anything too crazy for a motorcycle engine. from what i have heard that engine is a bit problematic hence why it hasn't gone into production yet.

The 1157cc motor that powers my Bandit 1200S dyno'd at my last dyno tune a respectable 134 hp to the wheel and 97ft/lbs of torque... That's wheel not crank ponies....Yes my bike is worked a bit but the bottom end is stock and the motor is the same cast as the one's that powered the frist GSX-R 1100s.


Now the Suzuki GSXR-1300R (AKA Hayabusa) 1340cc bumping out 178hp... Now that's a motor to drool about...
But I always hear motorcycle engines don't make the best swaps...

I've done some parts research on toyodiy for the euro T-sport 2ZR-FE. The motor/trans side of the mounts are identical to the xD, but the body side are unique part numbers to the TS. The shifter cable is also a unique part number, assuming that you get the TS 6-speed EC6X transmission. That thing is completely different from the C5X series. If someone has access to a UK parts dealer, this could be a very easy swap.

this is very interesting to me also.. been pondering this swap for some time now. I have been going to the junk yards waiting for an xD to be totaled so I can get a look and take some measurements.

would the C5X bolt to the yaris 1nz and also the splines off the crank fit in the stock yaris tranny?

The xD C50 uses the "same" bell housing and gearbox case as the Yaris. I say "same" because there are 2 different part numbers for the Yaris, depending on year of manufacture. The newer Yaris gearbox part number matches that of the xD, as does the bell housing.

I can't say with any certainty about the splines, but there seems to be a lot of possibilities of them being the same on the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, Celica, etc. Looking up flywheel application charts for aftermarket items could help verify this. Even if there's a mismatch, the crank splines go into the flywheel, and the trans splines go into the clutch disc, so as long as the diameter and clearances are correct, it's not an issue.

this is becoming more and more likely then I expected.. I just want more displacement for the torque.. would like to turbo the 2zr afterwards.

thanks for the research your doing.. please keep us (may just be me) posted on things you find.

if the 2zrfe bolts to the yaris transmission, it should make for an easier swap.
