In 1998 in the Toyota UZ series appeared 2UZ and replaced the 1FZ-FE. In contrast to the 1UZ and 3UZ, 2UZ-FE engine used cast iron cylinder block. It increased its reliability and durability. At the same time diameter of cylinders increased to 94 mm, used the crankshaft with a piston stroke of 84 mm. As a result we got low-speed engine with displacement of 4.7 liter. The cylinder head is aluminum, with two camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder. The first versions weren’t equipped with variable valve timing system VVTi and had the power 230-232 HP. Since 2005 these engines got VVTi system and their power increased to 270-280 horsepower. The size of fuel injectors on 2UZ-FE: 275 cc/min.
On the 2UZ uses a toothed timing belt, which changing every 50,000-60,000 miles of mileage (90,000-100,000 km).
2UZ produced until 2011, than 1UR-FE replaced it.
Toyota 2UZ engine problems and malfunctions
Toyota UZ became the extremely successful and trouble-free engines. These motors haven’t design errors and disadvantages. You can forget about problems if you in time serve it and if you use high-quality engine oil. Lifespan of 2UZ-FE more than 300,000 miles of mileage (500,000 km).
2UZ Supercharger. Turbo
Elementary to increase the horsepower of this motor by buying TRD supercharger kit. These sets are put bolt-on and it provide up to 350 horsepower. You needn’t even to buy the forged pistons. Adding a performance exhaust system it is possible a little more to increase a power and to improve a car sound.
As for the rest it is the same representative of UZ and you can make 2UZ Turbo or Twin turbo, by analogy with 1UZ.
