    hey guys, can't find a proper page but i guess this FAQ page is meant by Q&A session right..

    ^_^

    As i know, last time i see err.. Jahax, ur engine is what engine r? 2zzge right? not 3sge right?... aint too sure also le..haha!! long time already... ok.. back to my questions..

    I have a friend who is searching for an altezza after kenak pyscho by haha!! toyota kakis..haha! :P

    His question is that.. What is the different between 2zzge engine and 3sge? in terms of:
    1. powers, bhp..
    2. engine cost? like altezza with 2zzge issit more $$ compare to an altezza with 3sge?
    3. Upgrading version? 2zzge to supercharger? 3sge to 3sgte?

    and also.. altezza is actually running on 3 cam shaft right? and what is the different between vvtl-i and dual vvt? well, as i know.. ur 2zzge is consider as new year 2000 century N.A class engine and they are running on a new system called by VVTL-i.. ^_^

    ^_^ i check back later.. hopefully brother who remember me can give me some answer la..haha!! :D

    ciaos!~~ and thanks in advance first.. :P

    I have a friend who is searching for an altezza after kenak pyscho by (who) haha!! toyota kakis..haha! :P

    His question is that.. What is the different between 2zzge (190hp) engine and 3sge (210hp)? in terms of:
    1. powers, bhp..
    2. engine cost? like altezza with 2zzge(4k plus) (no altezza with this engine) issit more $$ compare to an altezza with 3sge (about the same)?
    3. Upgrading version? 2zzge to supercharger? 3sge (better with bolt-ons) to 3sgte?

    and also.. altezza is actually running on 3 cam shaft (inlet & exhaust cam = 2 camshaft) right? and what is the different between vvtl-i (single variable valve timing & lifting) and dual vvt (both camshaft is variable valve timing NO lifting)? well, as i know.. ur 2zzge is consider as new year 2000 century N.A class engine and they are running on a new system called by VVTL-i.. ^_^ (its because of its fuel economy, light weight, compact and new specification)

    How about the maintenance?
    Is it expensive to maintain the car?
    How about the fuel consumption?

    How about the maintenance? (like servicing a VIOS. no special care needed. put better engine oil like TOYOTA FULLY SYNTHETIC)
    Is it expensive to maintain the car? (unless u driving a BMW/MERC. its just a normal yota with a mild steroid engine.)
    How about the fuel consumption? manual 520km extra urban. average u get 11 km/litre. also take care of the O2 & air flow sensors and it will take care of ur wallet!)

    ok.. so that means.. 2zzge ain't on our Altezza engine compartment & not, not in local market here.. and 210 bhp.. hmn....

    ok then.. what is the differences of Z series(there is N,Z & L edition. pls refer to above)? what.. aiyo!! i wanna pengsan already here.. got how many version of altezza now in the market here?? The unregistered version.. Hear from him got Z version(final?) then err..

    hahha!! and i am not too understand on the part of the vvtl-i and dual vvt... does those engines is builded in with (Dual VVt-i for altezza) & (Single VVTL-i for celica)? eerr... (vvti x 2 is 1 engine which is 3S-GE) & (vvtl-i is another engine which is 2ZZ-GE),

    Sorry ha! May I ask, for Z-edition what does it mean : electric options and HID ??

    HID stands for the front lights right? Then what are the electric options available ?

    i m having problem.. wanted to know izzit me or its usuall..
    1st gear doesnt feel enough torque...
    power after 80kmh - 200kmh is pleasently good..
    few days ago only discover that previous owner from japan had mod a custom manifold pipe..
    suspected it have something to do with the bad manifold..
    i have photo under the car, but i guess it wont help much.

    so what i want to know is, does all altezza have mild 1st gear torque?
    or will a bad manifold really infect our 1st gear torque so great..
    and between, mine is 5a/t tip tronic..
    and have any 1 test out the original speedometer ..
    i mean izzit really 180kmh as it shown compare to RSM or any other car..?
    coz its too stable and make me hardly believe i m on 180 la..: Not_Impressed:

    too stable? haahah.. having an altezza is like having a beemer. In Japan, an altezza is in higher class compared to camry. The production of Altezza in year 1998 is to compete with the 3 series. FYI, auto is auto can't compare to manual. what u're experiencing now is NORMAL. manifold? why custom manifold? do u mean the 'extractor' - the front exhaust? for auto, it's a RESTRICTION to change it.

    i m not sure y those japanese made a custom 1 sine i m buying a re-con 1...
    for me torque coming around 5000rpm its a little late sine it end at 7000 without speeed cut...

    i m not sure r they lazy or what, but those ICE shop worker told me its hard/ impossible because it got no AV output/ input receiver...
