T Sport Engine swap into a saloon Corolla

2 posts in this topic

Hi, not sure if it has been done before but has anyone put a 1.8 T-sport Corolla engine (2ZZ-GE) into a 2004 Corolla 1.4 saloon? I know it is meant to be straight forward enough to swap the 1.8 into the hatchback 1.4's. If anyone has done this swap, is it straight forward? What exactly do you need to change? Engine, loom, mounts, fuel pump, ecu, shafts? Will all fit without modification?

Hi, I am doing the same kind of swap, unfortunately, I ended up having to rebuild the 2zz as the rod bearing decided to knock on me... Anyways, swapping the engine is basically straightforward, the hard part is the wiring removal from the dash (If I want the aircon and alarm too). Also, the ABS has to be transferred as the traction control is inside of it...  When I get the engine back together I'll see what has to be done to the fuel pump, but probably the pump itself is same in both, only the regulator different. The best way is to get a cheap whole car and swap anything that's needed...
