Hi all, I'm chasing the exhaust camshafts from a 3mz-fe engine.

Also 2mz-fe inlet camshafts

Does anyone have?

Thanks
Joel

We did not get the 2MZ here in the US, so you won't be able to find them here. I actually need a set myself (and the 3MZ ones). So I have a good idea of what your doing. :)

The 3MZ ones you can find here, but I don;t have any myself. It;s a common engine.

Good luck on your hunt mate!

Joel, do you use AIM, MSN, or Yahoo messanger?

A friend and I have heavily researched this, but yet to have any "hard" evidence of power gains, but all works out on paper. It's just a matter of time for me as my engine is burning oil. Also, I ship to Aus all the time, as I have some friends there. So thats not a problem. :)

Cheers,
Adam

Yeah I can jump on MSN - [email protected].
I've dropped a 1mz into a rear wheel drive old celica. Always planned to turbo it but loving the na 1mz at the moment. Just want to find a bit more horses which I reckon is hiding in there.
A shop in Australia who do a lot with 1mz engines put me onto the camshaft idea. I was toying with some individual throttles too.
I think I found some 2mz cams in new Zealand as common engine there.

We didn't get the 2mz-fe official here in the US but we do get them imported.I have one in my es300 .I'm also looking for 3mz exhaust cams let me know if you guys have any luck.The 2mz-fe cams are hard to get without buying the whole engine.

Here's some links to a few 2mz's on ebay

Sometimes you can find 2mz-fe cams on here (rarely)

I'm just going to end up buying an entire 2MZ-FE while I build my current 1MZ (Burning oil now). Be a neat experiment to see how a 2MZ runs boosted.
