2RZ or not to RZ?  The Toyota Tacoma 2RZ and 3RZ are now a bolt in option. The RZ offers power gains and increased economy, while retaining the factory transmission and radiator in their stock locations.  This motor conversion offers great fuel economy to offset conversion costs over the long run, and has more power to boot.

Chilkat Designs has made converting your 79-95 4 cylinder truck or 4runner easier than ever, by producing our own original, laser cut, Heavy Duty Conversion Motor Mounts.  Our Conversion Motor Mount Kits are precision crafted to help you replace the 22R or 22RE with a 4 cyl. RZ engine.  We call this a "bolt in" conversion because there are no modifications to the factory frame mounts, transmission mounts, firewall, hood, or drive lines.  Your factory radiator can be used with Tacoma hoses leaving plenty of room for the belt drive fan.  Reusing Toyota parts will save you time, money, and efforts.

The RZ motor continues to pay off down the road with commonly overlooked benefits.  Such as, a higher output alternator to keep your battery charged.  The OBDII diagnostics system will allow easy trouble shooting.  This 16 valve DOHC motor will bolt to the factory "G" and "W" series transmissions when using the Tacoma's W59 bell-housing, clutch, clutch slave, clutch fork, and flywheel.

The RZ power plants originated in the 95.5-04 Tacoma pickups and 4runners, with both manual and automatic options available. 
2wd drive models employ the 2RZ (142hp, 160tq) and the 4 wheel drive models utilized 3RZ's (150 hp, 177tq) .  Aftermarket superchargers and turbo charger kits are available for both models to produce extra power.  And don't forget about the factory set rev. limiter to keep everything held together.
