actually that won't stroke the 2zz to 1.93
liters like RevMonster was referring to. He was thinking of the Trial stroker kit that basically uses beefy internals with the 1zz crank. Again Trial recommends PowerFC to tune for max performance, so roxyracer, you would have to use the e-manage. And you would have to order the low compression pistons and that means lower than the 13.7:1 the kit comes with, since you probably would not want to use anything higher than 91 octane.
I have a highly modified GTS 6spd, but I was given the opportunity to drive an '04 GTS auto at Toyota's Put it in Play down here in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl. It had more low-end response than I thought it would have, and I had fun racing through the untimed course auto-x style to the dismay of the course counselor
. When you say low-end I don't think you mean off-the-line since you say you are not into racing (although you are roxyracer
). So if you don't do this already by habit, practice applying the gas smoothly but quickly for maximum acceleration. There is also skill in driving an auto.
Maybe I'm wrong, but you may end up like me who wasn't interested in racing first, but got insanely addicted. There's never enough power.
