The best fit I have found for a toyota motor and transmission is the 1.6 or 1.8 2tc & 3tc motors from the corrolla from 76 thru 82. I put a 1.8 with a toyota 4 speed and did not have to move the transfer case location. You can modify these little motors a lot and bore them out to a 2000

I have some, but for the first time I had the chance to run the dunes at the Hammers and it was one of the best times I've had, carve'n it up and jump'n the dunes. I wouldn't mind having a little more motor. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Im doing this swap on mine as well. Im using the 3tc. got any pics of your swap?

I race the 3tc, and have 3 of the engines built pretty good. Ive toned down the engine im swapping into the zuke to get the rpm down and torque where it needs to be.
These are real good engines and easy to modify.

The engine fits quite well, I had to machine the trnasfercase flange and redrill so it would bolt up to the toyota driveshaft flange I used only run 1 u-joint between the transmission and the transfer case. I used the stock toyota hydarulic clutch cylinder and toyota pedal. Engine will run a little warm on hot summer days. (But it only has 249,000 miles on it.) The shifter comes out about two inches further back than the original one.

tracker has both a 1.8 and 2.0 engines and they are most likely of the light metal persuasion, and true to the mark,you know more ZUK <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I was wondering have any of you guys considered the 4AG 1.6 DOHC engine.They are a very small package as well as indestuctable.The 5spd that they come with is very thin to fit a sammy tunnel without modifications.The only downfall may a slight lack of bottem end but they still probably have 50% more at equivilant RPM.If you get the chance look under the hood of an 85-87 Corolla GTS.I was thinking of this swap but I came up with a toy drivetrain out of an 85 for $125 cdn so I jumped at it.Time to save up a little bit and actually get the swap done.Just my $.02 worth here anyway.Can't have too many options then can we.

The 4ag motor should work, would like to have one. But this project started out with $75.00 samurai and a free corolla so the goal was to 4wheel for under $200.00 which we did but as you know we just kept adding on. now have 35" boggers beadlock wheels, 4.1 transfer case, 5:12 gears with hybrid rear end and lock rite lockers front and rear, toyota IFS power steering box.

Those twin cam engines are nice. Same here with me on the engine. I race this engine, so I already have a good supply of good engines, and performance parts. It was just cheaper to fab some mounts, and run an engine I already had alot of performance parts for.

I am putting a 2TC in my SJ (March?) soon. I measured 24" motor and 29" auto trans. My SJ motor was 20" and tranny was 17". Looks like the transer case may have to move unless I find a cheap 5 speed and clutch. Anybody know the dimensions of the stick trannies? Any interference issues on the swap? Did you use the toy rad?

Are any of those fuel injected, and if so how hard would it be to wire it up? You see since I run the 1600 16v I most certaintly can't go back to a carb.
