The 2.5L Toyota 1JZ engine platform was produced from 1990 to 2007 (still in current production in the Mark II BLIT Wagon as the 1JZGE). Cylinder bore is 86mm x 71.5mm stroke. The 1JZGTE employs twin CT12A turbochargers from the factory, blowing through a side-mounted air-to-air intercooler. Features 8.5:1 compression, OEM power output is pegged at 280HP at 6200 rpm. The early 1JZGTE's are most commonly available with an auto tranny, but a 5 speed manual version was available in the Supra 2.5L GT. Yamaha is believed to have had a hand in the development and/or production of the engines, specifically cylinder head design. In the following year (1991), the 1JZ-GTE was slotted into the all-new Soarer GT. Output remained at 206kW/363Nm and, again, most examples come tied to an auto trans. These 1JZ-GTE powered Soarers are quite common on the Australian market (as 'grey' imports).
