you will need more than just the engine if he ordered you a 2ZZ. you will need the ECU, wiring harness, passenger side engine mount. and a few other things. it will drop right in no problems. and you will love it if its done right.

try calling the guy and find out what he ordered a 1ZZ or 2ZZ, and by the way

its really :gay: to put GT-S badges on a GT

5spd tranny will bolt right up to the 2zz, but the 2zz flywheel is needed...

this engine swap will put a hole straight through ur pocket...and that mechanic is stupid for ordering a gts engine becuase of some emblems, theyre supposed to run it off the engine code itself or VIN

id look at the positive side of things, since your going to go vvtli you miught as well pay the extra cash and enjoy the extra hp. id love to be able to go 2zz... even the highest hp dynos are currently being done on the 2zz though supposedly 1zzs do better with f/i

1zz do not do better with f/i, its a common misconceoption everyone thinks just because the 1zz runs lower compression doesn't mean it runs better f/i. Look at the highest hp celicas out there, they are running turbo 2zz.
