About our engine for those who are curious. It wasn't a difficult find, but wasn't as simple either, so I will post it. In short, it is the replacement of the 1zz-fe which was meh lol. I was fortunate enough to have a 2zz-ge at one point. I think this info may help for those who want to modify the engine in any aspect. Any way, info below.


The Toyota 2ZR-FE is a DOHC, 16-valve, 1.8 L(1798 cc)[2] engine also equipped with Dual VVT-i.

This new engine is now replacing the 1ZZ-FE engine in most applications.[3] Output for this engine is rated at 101 kW (136 hp) at 6000 rpm and 174 N·m (128 lb·ft) of torque at 4400 rpm for the Corolla, Matrix, and Vibe and 95 kW (128 hp) and 171 N·m (126 lb·ft) of torque in the Scion xD.

Engine Type : In-Line 4-cylinder DOHC 16-valve
Bore × Stroke = 80.5 mm × 88.3 mm (3.169 in × 3.476 in)
Compression Ratio : 10.0:1
Weight : 97 kg (214 lb), without fuel
15.2 km/L (43 mpg-imp; 36 mpg-US) fuel consumption (10-15 Australia & New Zealand test cycle)

Our engine is the 2ZR-FAE. The FE is the dual VVT-i the FAE is the valvematic.
I stand corrected

The Toyota 2ZR-FAE is a DOHC, 16-valve, 1.8 L (1797 cc) this engine adopts the Valvematic system. This all-new engine is progressively replacing the 1ZZ-FED and 2ZR-FE engine in most applications. Variants of this engine produce 104–110 kW (139–148 bhp) and 171–175 N·m (126–129 lbf·ft) of torque. Compression ratio is 10.5:1 and redline is at 6600 rpm. The engine consumes 5–10% less fuel than the 2ZR-FE depending on the application.[4]

I was searching for performance stuff for my iM and since the 2014+ Corolla is closely related to our iM's, I tried looking for parts for those cars... I found a lot. There's a company called Monkeywrench Racing that makes parts specifically for the Corolla, Matrix, etc. and they have some stuff released for the 2014+ Corolla's too. Since the Corolla and iM have a similar engine (other than difference between VVT-I and Valvematic), some parts should be interchangeable.Monkeywrench Racing - Performance Sold Here - Celica - MR2 Spyder - Corolla - Lotus Performance

There's also a huge thread on another forum that has a massive list of what is available for the new Corolla. Modifications Available for the 11th gen Corolla - Toyota Nation Forum : Toyota Car and Truck Forums

They even have a turbo kit! I wonder how many of those parts fits our cars. Overall, I'm excited to see what parts could possibly fit our Scions! What do you guys think? :D

Do a Google search on tha Toyota Valvematic engine design, it is quite unique design. If my understanding is correct on my reading of the detailed description of operation. The throttle plate is not used in the normal sense and functions as a backup if the Valvematic system fails. It's quite an engineering feat.
