I'm currently busy with swapping my 1ZZ engine for a 2ZZ and I was wondering if I can mount my stock 1ZZ exhaust to the 2ZZ midpipe. This is a temporary solution until I've ordered a more free flowing exhaust.
That should be fine I'm still running my aftermarket Gt exhaust.

That doesn't sound right to me. If you have the engine harness and everything plugs up correctly to the underside of the fuse box the rest really shouldn't matter. This is coming from someone who did this swap themselves. I could be wrong but from a logical stand point it just doesn't make sense.

I see you found the site! I hope you'll find all the information you need.

Don't think it matters. The engines are the same. Just wondering about the throttle and shift cables.

Is there going to be a problem when i mount a 2002 Gts long block into my 2001 Gts engine bay? There is nothing mounted on the new block, i have to put everything from the old block over to the new. Will i encounter any problems? Like knocksensor problems?

I'm planning on doing the 2zz swap into my 2000 GT, just a few things I'm concerned about. As far as my shifter goes, will I have 2 swap it out? If I buy the GTS wiring harness I shoodn't have a problem wiring everything (knock sensor, lift, etc...). Could I just buy a cluster from a GTS and replace mine?

The shifter is not an issue, If you get a GTS wiring harness it will work fine, same with the cluster. Good Luck.

Okay, I have a 2001 Celica GT! It is burning oil like crazy, around 1 quart per 700 miles. I have found a 2004 Matrix XRS motor/tranny/wire harness/alternator/ignition/ecu. What I am wondering is what problems I may run into in the swap. From reading this thread I understand my tach on my gauges will not work unless I find a GTS gauge cluster. But what I am wondering is what I do as far as the ECU. I understand that the 04 XRS will be DBW and my 01 uses a throttle cable. Now do I have to get a earlier ECU and throttle body from a earlier GTS or could I get a throttle mechanism (gas pedal) from a 04 GTS and make my 01 DBW and use the 04 ECU. Just trying to figure out what all I need before I order the parts. Any input is appreciated! Thanks

imo, sell the gt and put the money your going to use in investing to buy all the parts for a swap and just get the GTS, that's what i did, i was quoted around 4k for the swap, including motor, tranny, etc and labor, so i sold my celi, added almost 3k and got me a gts :)
