I have purchased a holed 2zz from a Celica. What is the best manual to use to guide me through the tear down? I'll probably be asking a lot of questions here too since I really don't know jack. :shrug: It is never too late to learn right?

...buy the celica shop manual directly from toyota - all lotus does is repackage its engine chapters, i believe...

Sure, I can sell what is left when I am done. The shipping might be a bit of a pita.

What do you need left? Most of my investigation will center around the head and the top of the block. I'll take a couple of pics tomorrow to show the damage that can be seen so far.

ditto. I've never done much engine work, either. I have replaced the rod bearings on a Porsche 944, but someone basically held my hand. I'm going to be replacing my cams and rockers on the Elise, so I'm interested to find out what you find out. :)

A couple of pictures of how it looks at the start. 104k. I was told that it blew at 4k RPMs. I didn't really know what other questions I should have asked. I'll post more as I get things apart. One bit that is not apparent is the hole in the shallow end of the oil pan. I also know I didn't get all the bits and pieces. He said the two valves were in the pan and more of the piston.

I guess I could have asked him to give it to me but I did not think if it at the time.
