Choice of PHR Billet Timing Gears:
PHR One Piece Billet Timing Belt Drive Gear for 2JZ-GTE (12 tooth pickup wheel)
Powerhouse Racing has always been on the top of the world in creating solutions to common problems that occur with the 2jz engine. One common issue is the timing pickup will often separate from the main timing belt gear and spin causing a trigger/sync error. This will cause running and timing problem. As a solution, we have built a one-piece gear to so that you can never have to face this issue.
Rather than welding the factory gear, PHR has made the move to CNC a single-piece steel timing gear to offer an even stronger product. Zinc plated to prevent corrosion.
**NOTE FOR VVTi*** A 2JZ utilizing the VVTi system has a different timing gear with 36-2 tooth setup. It is a single piece and does not suffer from the same potential seperation issues. Meaning you may not need to change the gear on a VVT-i setup. However, the teeth on the vvti version are brittle and do commonly break so we have devloped a billet version (see below). It also has more defined edges which can provide a cleaner signal. Some racers choose 36-2 for more resolution on their timing signal even on a non vvti setup.
PHR One Piece Billet Timing Belt Drive Gear for 2JZ-GTE (36-2 tooth pickup wheel)
The Powerhouse Racing One Piece Billet Timing Belt Drive Gear for the VVT-i 2JZ-GTE features a one-piece design and is CNC machined from billet steel. This timing gear features lightening holes on both the front and rear of the gear to keep it as light as possible, and the steel material makes for a less brittle piece so teeth are not easily broken.
This is a common upgrade for cars with aftermarket ECU's. When comparing the 36-2 tooth gear to the 12 tooth version, the 36-2 tooth gear offers better crank shaft position resolution for more precise ignition and fuel injection timing.
This gear also features a more precise and square tooth shape so trigger edges are even better defined.
