Cosworth have just released a new range of tuning components for the 2ZZ engine as used in the Toyota Celica GT-S, Corolla T-Sport, Lotus Elise and Lotus Exige.
Included in the range are Short Block Assemblies, Forged Pistons, Forged Lightweight Connecting Rods, Engine Bearing Sets, Multi Layer Metal Head Gasket and Cosworth’s ingenious Cosworth ‘Thermal Guard’ Composite Intake Manifold Gasket.
Short blocks come complete with a balanced & blue-printed genuine Toyota 2ZZ crankshaft inspected to Cosworth specifications, Cosworth forged H-beam connecting rods,
Cosworth forged high compression pistons and rings
and Cosworth treated bearings. Various compression ratios are available.
Although the standard engine has forged pistons, the Cosworth high performance replacements have been designed and manufactured using the same methods as their winning Formula 1 pistons and feature a skirt profile and oval technology that reduces engine noise while increasing life & performance. Oil and combustion gas controls reduce blow-by and oil consumption. Polished tops reduces carbon build up and relieves stress and the pistons also boast patented anti-detonation bands. Under-crown milling reduces weight while maintaining strength and durability.
Connecting Rods feature precision machine work to maintain optimum weight and strength, an H-beam cross section design for high power applications and reduced reciprocating mass to permit high RPM (revving) without damage.
Full details of these items and also the Cosworth bearing and gaskets for the 2ZZ can be found in a new brochure published by Cosworth and available for download at
Cosworth components are available from appointed Cosworth dealers worldwide.
