I see trd and plenty of others doing a lot with this base. trd has done quite a few upgrades for the European Toyota Auris.Did some research on the 2ZR-FAE engine. The conclusive consensus is it's hopelessly detuned in order to maximize fuel saving. But I'm optimistic! Post your power mods with before and after results!
Yes this.Maybe with enough push we can get Descendant Racing to partake and build a turbo kit for our engine base.
Awesome, can't wait to see that and to see how it progresses as it breaks in. I think they take something like a couple week to break in.This would be a bad motor to turbo charge ... compression is way too high. Super charger would be much safer.
Coil springs are already available by H&R model number is H&R 29084-5 I have some sitting in my living room floor right now. Installing them Friday after work... I'll post some before and after pics
Power commander lol. Those are for motor-cycles. Someone like Ecu Tek, APR, or Cobb would need to make some sort of a piggyback device and flash program the onboard ECU providing some off the shelf maps. Theres always AEM, Hydra, or other aftermarket standalone ECU's, but you would need to go to a professional tuner / installer for that unless you think you're capable of "fiddling" an entire map table from scratch. The only way this would even be practical is if someone were building a motor, going lower compression, built internals, bigger injectors / pump, and turbo charging... I wouldn't be surprised to see one of these done up like that at SEMA or something but your average Joe is not buying these cars for stuff like that... they're buying GTI'sjust get a power commander or soemthing similar and fiddle with the AFM, there's enough gains there to make it feel more punchy without putting too much at risk...
What did you quote this from?2ZR Turbo. 2ZR-FTE
Turbokits developed out of the Garrett GT2871R engines are specially designed for the 2ZR. They are provided with a complete set including: a turbocharger, intercooler, manifold, all the pipings, blow-off, 550 cc injectors, cold air intake, all necessary filters, fuel pump, oil feed lines, oil return line, and an ECU. You only need to buy a 2ZR turbokit, bolt it on the stock internals and adjust it. If necessary, you should also buy a Greddy E-manage. The configuration will allow you to develop 200 horsepower, at pressure boosted to 7 psi (0.5 bar).
To gain capacity and heighten reliability, you will need to purchase forged pistons fitted to 8.5-9 compression ratio, reinforced connecting rods, make a performance exhaust system 3”, bolt the 800 cc injectors on, and increase boost pressure. All the aftermarket parts will help to achieve more than 350 horsepower.

CVT is better for turbo since you dont lose boost between shifts.I feel like I'm limited with heavy mods such as a turbo upgrade because I have the CVTi-S model...
Agree.They did have a supercharger kit for the gen1 xB so I wouldn't say it's a crazy thought.
There was actually a supercharger kit for all 3 of the 1gen models if I remember correctly.They did have a supercharger kit for the gen1 xB so I wouldn't say it's a crazy thought.
