  1. Re: early (1991-93) vs. later (1994-95) JDM engines

    You don't want to put a 2TZ-FZE without Supercharger in your van. It will work, but to support the supercharger, it uses different (yet stronger) pistons to reduce compression in the block slightly...

    Re: 92 Toyota Previa rear sunroof

    Sorry I'm late to the party. I am willing to place bets that your issue has nothing to do with the motor. I bet it's has to due with the actual cables that move the rear sunroof. These are fairly...

    Re: Life of the Supercharger Unit

    This is the reason my Previas are N/A models. When I started searching for my first Prev, I wanted the S/C. However, whenever I asked an owner how often they changed the oil in the supercharger, the...

    Re: Life of the Supercharger Unit

    Agreed. In fact, one popular option on the MR2 S/C is swapping to from the SC12 unit in the MR2 to the SC14 from the Previa. I'm sure you'll find info on MR2 forums on the SC14 supercharger on them.

    Re: SADS problem as in noise only in Drive

    I hear what you're saying and it sounds pretty straightforward. Well , in a way, it isn't. the 1991-93 models had a driveshaft that wasn't meant to be repaired. It was designed to be replaced. That's...
  6. Re: question for all the previa owners (captains seats mid row)

    I was just wondering about this last night when I was cleaning my '91 with quad seating. My 92's both have swivel seating in the second row. I looked on C-list and found a set of swivels for $100....

    Universal Joint Replacement

    I just had the universal joints replaced on one of my 1992 Previa LEs. I bought the joints at Autozone for $14.99 each. Removing the driveshaft was simple enough but I had to take the shaft to a shop...

    Re: differance between a SC and non SC motor

    I agree with you. Replacing the head on an old engine is just not a wise decision IMO. You will have a new head with 0 miles on a bottom end with 240,000 miles. You will at least have a 6 month...

    Re: differance between a SC and non SC motor

    Not sure about the similarities between the two heads but it's safe to assume that they are different since the S/C has more done to it to lower the compression (and handle the supercharger) than...

    Re: differance between a SC and non SC motor

    They are two different engines internally. The N/A version is the 2TZ-FE and the S/C is the 2TZ-FZE. With the 2TZ-FZE the engine has stronger internals (pistons, sleeves, rods, etc.) with lower...
