The intake cam fits and like a stage 1. Exhaust won't fit due to the VCT.

ZX2 Cam

Do it if you can pick up an intake cam from a junk yard at a decent price!

What years of the ZX2, any? I see ZX2's all the time at the local junk yard. This could be a cheap alternative to FR cams.

Do some research. There are a few old threads about this. I think I read it on both, but found more info on FJ if I remember correctly.

And I have one sitting in my garage for the day that I finally open the valve cover.

at .050" the stock lift is .346", so its a decent jump, almost a stage 1 cam!
