Quote from: AJRFulton on September 15, 2022, 12:58The 2ZZ seems to fare a lot worse than say, the K20 - and not just in swapped cars. The 2ZZ's track record with cars where it is the OEM engine isn't great either. But as said Lotus application doesn't seem to have the same issues. Mostly seems to be oil starvation issues with the 2ZZ, and even taking the precautions (sump/pump/etc) doesn't eliminate that. I've had 2 oil starvation failures, and I've did everything short of a dry sump to prevent it! I personally know of 5x 2ZZ's (3x MR2's, a Corolla and an Elise) that have went bang at the same long right hander at Croft, all with spinning a bearing, all with baffled sumps as a minimum.Although I think a street car application the 2ZZ is absolutely fine.
