In reply to malibuguy :

I considered the 2zz for a long time, but all the ones I found were beat and/or well into the excessive oil consumption phase of their lives. 

I’m looking to go 1nz. Not really near my initial power goals, but should be good and nice in there. I want to develop the chassis, then build power.

Carson said:I'd like to get something in there to develop the chassis and suspension the best I can before adding power, I think without some pretty major adjustments to stock-ish, 200 hp will be wasted and unusable. The 1NZ-FE that malibuguy has planned for his is great and I'm watching that with interest.

Thank god you've got the right attitude about it. Some guys in the 4A-GE world forget the engine is +30 years old and don't appreciate youngins like me who go "Yeah, that ported head and New Zeland-sourced intake is cool, but a current engine from a Scion would have done the same for way cheaper..."
