TRD Vitz RS Turbo - Half Cut

While searching around for a manual transmission, we came across this rare unit of a scrapped TRD Vitz RS Turbo from Japan.

Together with David we picked Toby up from GT Auto this morning to check out the unit, we fired it up and the engine came to life.

We decided to purchase the gearbox.

Now with the transmission sorted out, we're one step closer and we will be looking to throw in a final gear ratio set, a 1.5 way LSD and a short shifter.

hi mr chang,
can this engine install to myvi?n how it cost fot this halfcut?

Chang Chew Soon said...

hi man,

i've seen a couple of myvi with the 1nzfe engine transplanted before so its definitely something that can be done.

however, if im not mistaken the engine has been sold ever since i bought up the gearbox.

are you looking into doing a transplant? i've got a couple of 1nzfe engines here if you're interested.

one of them has built pistons and conrods, and can easily take 250 horse at the wheels.

mohd said...

owh..it's trd sportivo & turbo engine?

Chang Chew Soon said...

nopes its a standard 1nzfe engine but with built forged pistons and forged conrods.

you would need to install a turbo kit yourself.
