2ZZ Engine Swap Install – Celica, Corolla, Matrix, Vibe

Eligible Vehicles (Manual Transmission ONLY):
2000-05 Celica GT
2003-04 Corolla, Matrix, Vibe 1ZZ

2005-08 Corolla/Matrix/Vibe and automatic trans vehicles are both a huge amount of additional work, we are not performing this swap on those vehicles currently.

The early 1ZZ engines are now notorious for piston ring failure and oil consumption. The most popular fix is upgrading to the more robust 2ZZ-GE engine (and optionally 6-speed transmission). Better durability, clean OEM-like install and a 50+ horsepower boost makes this swap a no-brainer!

Our most popular install:

  • 2ZZ-GE engine, low mile used, fully inspected, new lift bolts
  • Appx 190hp
  • 6-speed transmission, fully rebuilt and inspected
