Is the supra engine the 2gz-gte? I'm not up on my toyota lexicon.

I searched the archives, but couldn't find anything on the supra engine vs. the IS. What are the main differences?

What sort of boost are guys running to get 450RWHP? I assume it's in the upper teen range.

Thank you very much. You guys have a great and helpful board.

supraTT engine is 2jz-gte

IS300 is 2jz-ge

main differences are that the IS engine has vvt-i, where as the only year the supra had vvt-i was '98

supra pistons and rods are different/stronger

compression on supra is lower (for the boost)

-gte- feel free to elaborate :wink:

and when you say "What sort of boost are guys running to get 450RWHP?", are you talking about supra guys or IS guys?

Thank you for the info. I was asking about IS guys.

What is the stock CR for the IS?

I assume the VVTi works fine with the aftermarket turbos?

Stock CR for IS300 is 10.5:1

VVT-i will work with aftermarket turbos only if you use an EMU that still allows for it's use. Piggybacks allow you to keep VVT-i. Also, I know the Haltech e6k allows you to keep VVT-i. I am not sure about others. People will chime in, I'm sure.

The differences between the GTE and GE blocks (turbo vs. NA) is different rods/pistons, and the GTE block has oil squirters for each piston. Aside from that, the GTE shortblock and the GE block are identical.

the vvti will work fine up to a certain power range. after rough estimate would be around 600 rwhp or high 500's from what I have heard and have been told from a few tuners it will really wont do much anymore and the use of cams would be more helpful than anything else.(disabling the vvti would be needed in order to use gte cams)

so you can put in the GTE cams directly?

Well, in theorhetical prospects, kind of biblical . . . the GTE's compression rate has an aflac style conversion system that really produces a midland range of pure centrix boost. You can only really achieve that though if you follow the one track guide to boost, otherwise when you do attach the internal agent, the only dilema you'll get is a full trolly.

Hope this helps and that it made some sense to you guys.

But you can offset the ful trolly by respecing the headlight fluid and then adding some spanners to the flux capacitors. Bling BLING!
