User red rocket on here sourced those for me. Unfortunatley while I was making the buckets for the fixed headlights one of them fell out and chipped on the lower edge, so I'll have to buy another set off of him when that car gets closer to being finished. I'll get a set for the white car too once I paint it.

And since we have some plane nerds in here, these were parked outside of a hanger I was working out of the other day. Noisy fuckers

Picked up my new engine for the white car today. It a 2azfe out of a scion TC, it's an all alluminum 2.4l. Unfortunately this motor is a throttle by wire, so that Vipec 44 I was pricing out, now has to be the more expensive v88 model. Another downer is the plastic intake manifold but I'm not planing on boosting it so I'll live with it.

From the looks of it, the 2az doesn't have the tilt that the 3s has, & that has me a bit concerned. I'm going to mount a tranny to it this week and throw it into my mock up chassis.

2AZ is a bit of a strange choice.

The sump in the photo looks like it is made to be tilted?

Why not remove the FBW throttle?
It shouldnt be difficult to bolt on a throttle body from something else.

Have you checked the bellhousing bolt pattern?
Hopefully the gearbox bolts up ok.

The 2AZ is a very over-square (long stroke) engine.
Like most over-square engines, its designed for torque, not top end power.
While it might perform ok, the "fun factor" will be limited :(

I picked the 2az because of the class I'm choosing/forced to run this car in. Out national series doesn't allow ameature rallyists the use of a turbo.

The class is called open light & allows naturally aspirated 4wd vehicles w/ a displacement cap of 2.6l. The 2az gets me close to that displacement limit, has a huge aftermarket support, makes good torque, super cheap, & readily available.

To put it in perspective I sprung a leak in one of my water pipes on my 1st gen 3s, the part alone cost $600 and there were none available in the states. This entire Scion long block cost me $500. With intake, headers, exhaust, & managment I should be close to the factory 3s hp/tq figures which is more than enough to have some fun on the gravel. There are guys online making 230whp with the BC cams & supporting mods.

Don't worry my red all trac will remain 3s turbo.

It's pretty similar as far as laying it up for vacuum bagging.

I use spray adhesive and then lay my fabric to get it to stick in the tricky places before I inject the resin. That's the only real trick I use. Sometimes if the part doesn't come out clean I'll sand it & automotive clear it.

Ahh, fair enough then :)

Never thought there would be a mod market for 2AZ's.
We only got them in RAV4's here in Aus.

Im considering buying a 2AZ powered RAV4 at the moment, so itll be good to see what you do with the engine, and the resulting performance.

I've got to say, I'm very intrigued to see how this pans out. Hope enough power will be on tap to power the beast.

The white car is getting the same cage. We built 3 of every bar.
