what will i need for this swap????
Why would you want to do this? Its a waste of money unless your boosted or built n/a revving to at least 8k
It looks bad ass
True it looks badass and you can polish that thing too, pretty sure it will gain a little more, if not maybe as much gain as swapping a celica/corolla plastic intake manifold.

Probably need a custom spacer, think "lower intake runners" that has this pattern on the 1ZZ head side (see the three gaskets on top for intake manifold port shape:
And on the 2ZZ IM side, it needs to have this pattern (see the box labeled "Intake") :
As you can see, the runners have a slightly different shape. The smoother you can make this transition, the better your upgrade will be. However, you also need to make the adapter/spacer thing as thin as possible for the best chance at fitment. These two conflicting goals will dictate your adapter/spacer. Longer = smoother transition, but also harder to fit. Shorter = easier to fit, but may cause unwanted turbulence/pressure drop in the manifold.
Too much james, too much.
You no lieks succinct, accurate, technical info that would end the thread on a normal forum?
He doesn't like how you've taken over lol.
Moar like returned home
I am the taker over.
Very nice James!
Thank you sir, and how is your glorious day progressing?
Positively fantastic fellow comrade, I am lad you could spare a bit of time to ask me that question!
What's this post missing?
Hummer, I think he's from where you're from.
The guy in the thread below used basically the same method to adapt 4A-GE 20V SilverTop ITBs to his 4A-GE:
it will pick up power, but for the best gains you will need to have a way to tune for it. the spacing is pretty close. i have seen people modify the flange on the 2zz manifold to fit the 1zz, but it will not clear the starter. you have to have about 1/2 taken off of the bottom to clear the starter. this is because the 2zz head is about that much taller than the 1zz head due to the rocker shafts for the VVL system.
Still gonna try this, Bee?
James is a boss with all his damn diagrams.
You bet he is!
So much Nub. So little time.
