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.

planning on a 2zz swap into an 06 xa... i plan on using this thread for general guidelines as the comprehensive gist is pretty similar. gotta say that this is by far the most active and extensive thread for yaris swaps that i can find, and it really seems like OP knows what he's doing! big thanks to AR and everyone who contributes for the help!

feel free to shoot me a different direction if you see fit!

A 2zz swap will be awesome, make sure to create your own thread to share the journey

Just so you’re aware, a 2ZZ will involve cutting the frame to get it in.

yep, basically gaining 99% of my knowledge from YT vids... saw on AR's channel what will be involved for the cutting of the frame near the tranny.

my hopes are that the sizes of the 2zz vs the 2zr with a c60 are identical and that the engine bay dimensions in that of the yaris are also the same as the xa bay. along with distance between the hubs. i will have to find out if the axels from a celica will fit as well.

IF the dimensions mentioned above are all luckily the same, my next question is, how did the xd axels fit from the c60 trans to the yaris hubs? new distance (2zr w/c60 in yaris)was spec for the xd axels?? and then i gotta see if it works in my engine bay with celica axels and a 2zz.....

The xA chassis is the same as the Echo. They have a smaller engine bay. You’ll have to cut both frame rails to fit it in. The 2zz is about an inch longer than the 1NZ and the pulleys will run right through the frame.

I’m not 100% on the axles swap because I used a C160 witch retains the stock axles.

The xD axles worked perfectly for me since the 2zr and C-transmission were originally designed to be used in this arrangement.

I dont know if the 2zz is longer than the 2zr, but the Celica differential uses the same axle spline as the xD

The motor mounts place the transmission so you could probably use xD axles then with the C60
