2AZFE head on ebay

1509 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  lo bux racer
just found this on ebay, 2AZ-FE Head. the description says it's a little damaged, but it may be useful to someone who wants to try some head tuning... i've been thinking about modifications to this head for a while (i want to try out some crazy vvtl-i ideas). how bad does the damage look in the picture?

just wanted to give people the heads-up (pun not intended). i'd love to experiment with it, but i just don't have the money or the time right now. maybe if someone else wants to play with it and see what can/can't be done.

Linky no workee.
If the price stays low, I'll be bidding on that head. I'll put it on the car, then modify my original head and see what I can get out of it. I can also see how well put together the original piece is from two examples. Let's just hope there isn't a bidding war...
It's mine. Now we can see what this little engine can do.

You are definately going to have to share your findings with me.

The head showed up today. No valves, but it's straight enough for the cams to turn, so it might actually be a runner.

It has the typical rough turn on the port floor, and the bowls are crude, but Toyco actually did a decent job of blending the seats into the ports at the factory.

Oh, it did come with a few extras: cam chain and sprockets, VVTi control valve, cams, oil pump (?), oil pump drive chain (hey, did you guys know that's a RADICAL departure for Toyco?), cam chain slippers and tensioner, and a full set of balancer bearings (they're sized just like crank and rod bearings, strange).

Work will commence after I get a pressure check and a flatness check to determine the real health of the unit.
Was wondering on the progress of that pressure check and such. Find out anything?
Nothing yet. I haven't done anything with it, I've been waiting for my 1/4ly bonus to get started with it. It should show up soon, it always does...
