perhaps you are refering to the 3zz engine, aka the 2zz with the trial stroker kit. This engine is found in non US spec countries in celicas and corollas. Often time this engine is called the TRD engine. Even though the stroker kit is made by trial.

TRD will build your engine just throw them some major cash that's all.
They have the specs of everything. Do you have the money?

Good call Floydian,

True, you might get them to build something of that caliber, but damn. You might end up with a Celica that cost you the same amount as owning two Celicas (exaggerating).
Somebody get one of those things state-side and install it.

the parts were never mass produced from what it seems.

I'm sure like mentioned, that for enough money you can get them to remake all the parts for you. also like mentioned you could buy another celica outright for the cost too.

Just go force induction. It'll be a friction of the cost as that TRD engine and probably more power too! thumbsup
