MWR complete rebuilt 2ZZ-GE engine.

Fits all Lotus and Toyota vehicles originally equipped with a 2ZZ-GE engine.


  • Brand new OEM pistons and rings
  • Brand new rod, main and thrust bearings
  • Competition 3-angle valve job, new valve seals

This engine is a fantastic solution for anyone whose stock 2ZZ engine has failed or is worn out. We rebuild these engines to Toyota’s OEM specs for excellent durability and fuel economy. Build time is 1 week or less.

30 day limited warranty. Does NOT apply to racing or forced induction applications.

Options include:

  • Cams
    We can build your engine with stock or aftermarket cams- for aftermarket cams just select that option then check out the camshaft section of our store and purchase the cams of your choice. You will also need upgraded valve springs (below)
  • Compression Ratio
    Choose 9.0:1 compression for turbo, supercharged or extreme nitrous applications. 10.5:1 works great for low pressure forced induction. 11.5:1 stock pistons work great naturally aspirated and are the least expensive. Choose 12.3:1 for naturally aspirated performance.
  • Connecting rods
    Select stock or upgraded connecting rods for naturally aspirated and lightly boosted engine combinations. For serious turbocharged, supercharged or nitrous applications we recommend upgrading to MWR or Crower billet connecting rods for additional safety and strength. For maximum weight savings and high rpm performance choose Crower Maxilight (up to 500hp) or Crower Titanium rods.
  • Core Charge
    Like most engine builders we sell these engines, heads and blocks on an exchange basis. That means that we require you to send us a rebuildable “core” similar to the engine, head or block that we are sending to you. If we’re going to send the rebuilt unit to you first then we charge you a core charge, which is a deposit that we hold on to until your core is returned to us and is then refunded to you. For a full refund of your core charge the core must be returned within 30 days and must be rebuildable- this means no holes or cracks in the block, no significant damage to cylinder heads, and no missing bits such as cam caps. We don’t care about pistons or rods. Valves may be bent, crankshafts may be scuffed.
  • Crankshaft
    If you choose the Lightened and Knife Edged option the crankshaft is precisely machined to remove approximately 10% of its weight, then the counterweights are contoured and the crankshaft is rebalanced. Advantages include quicker throttle response, horsepower increase thanks to less drag through crank case oil, and corresponding reduction in oil foaming. Great for high rpm and racing applications.
  • Oil Pan
    For cooler oil temps and better oil pickup upgrade to a Moroso oil pan. If you’re doing any road course racing this is a must because of the stock oil pan’s poor pickup which can cost you bigtime when it starves your rod bearings of oil. Also works great with turbo systems.
  • Port work
    Select the ported head option to have MWR fully port your cylinder head. We smooth and reshape the ports and seats for the ultimate in flow. You can expect improved power throughout the rev range whether you’re turbo or NA with no loss of street manners.
  • Valve springs
    Select MWR valve springs to safely rev 500-600rpm higher than the stock rev limiter. Add Titanium retainers for the ultimate in valve float resistance.
  • ValvesMWR’s top quality stainless valves work great for most applications. Ferrea’s valves are polished to a mirror shine. The intake valves are stainless like the MWR valves but the Ferrea exhaust valves are made of inconel which has exceptional heat resistance and is preferred for extreme turbo or nitrous applications.
