Positive eh? Find something to back up what you're saying. The 2jz-gte and 2jz-ge engines, unless modified with camshafts with greatly increased lift or oversized valves) are non-interference engines:MKIV4Door said:I use to believe the same thing . Sorry though, but you are both wrong, 2jz motors are interference motors, im positive of that.
(last sentence of the first paragraph on "engine general description"
Though it does appear that the 1998+ vvti 2JZ-GE engine is an interference engine. . .
Or you could try giving your local toyota mechanic a call. . .they could also set you straight.
It appears that MKIV4door drives a lexus with swapped gte internals. . .who wants to bet that his is a '98+ with VVti?
It's also a wonderful thing that they're non interference or i would have had a head full of bent valves when my timing belt got cut last winter.
