Pics for a diy would for sure help and as stated above an outline listing parts needed make it easier for sure.

I'd personally rather have a blitz s/c for my 1nz, but due to the crazy price the 2zr may be more realistic. I just wouldn't spend the cash unless I knew exactly if it would work and how to do it.

I'm sure others would be a bit more adventurous but as my DD I have to be somewhat careful what I do to my Yaris.

How's your swapped Yaris running?

Nice swap and very well done!!! Great to see someone out this way actually doing it.

But.........you can get more then 30 additional hp from the 1nz

Ive created a parts list with approximate prices in this tread. But I agree on pics and a diy, I can do that. The 2zr Yaris is running great, its getting an intake, pulley, and header soon!

It's not that bad considering just a donor engine would cost $2000 plus. The guy's from Puerto Rico have great reliable success all N/A no turbo and Dyno charts. Quite impressive and a hell of a lot less work

Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting down your swap because I think it's an awesome swap you guy's did. ;) You should be able and get 20-40 more hp if done right. I was and still am considering a 2ZZ-GE swap which is not hard to do mechanically. The wiring is another story however, not plug and play. I'm undecided whether to do more on my go-kart (Yaris) or start my Audi 2.7TT swap.

How about pitching this to Toyota. If it's really not that hard to do this engine swap, then why not have Toyota offer a Yaris with this engine from the factory!?

Call it the Yaris Type R or something...

All of that sounds great, and is cool! But that is fine for those NOT looking for a legit, smog legal 50 state swap option. The 2zr has been battle tested in the Lotus for years, and you START with 128-136hp/126ftlbs depending on header choice!

Awesome. Major kudos for taking the leap and being the first to try this swap.

I'm confused though - did the Yaris' transmission work out?

Also, any pics of the completed swap?

Pretty cool project. If the 2ZR has as much potential as the 1NZ it should be really fast once you start tweaking on it.

Do NOT buy a Subaru with a EJ25. The reliability on those engines is terrible if you want to upgrade the turbo. Money pit for sure.

I agree, and being that the Lotus exige has a supercharged 2zr....we know there is an aftermarket for these engines already.
