2JZGTE Information

 Who's Boss? RB26DETT or 2JZGTE, find the facts for yourself for the 2JZGTE, the legendary Toyota flagship engine, both engines were manufactured with auto racing pedigree in mind & both of these engines after having been heavily modified & tuned are known to produce over 1,000 hp.

All the rumors & speculations behind every Toyota's 2JZGTE or Nissan's RB26DETT fans claiming performance superiority on their favorite comes to a halt when the core facts come to the surface. Just because both engines, SR26DETT & 2JZGTE can produce over 1,000 hp at the rear wheels, it does not prove a thing! Is the 2JZGTE the boss? The information posted below can help you decide even if you're a die-hard for your name brand.  

In 2002, at NHRA's Street Tire Class, the unibodied Titan Motorsport 2JZGTE Supra of Mark Mazurowski broke the all-season record breaking dominance of Ari Yallon's Rotary Performance RX-7 to take the title and became the fastest uni-body Supra in the world with a time of 9.42 second and 157.56 mph (253.57 km/h) at Maple Grove Raceway, Pennsylvania, despite a quicker time by the 2JZGTE at Houston Raceway Park of 9.002 at 160.40 which was unrecorded.

 The 2JZGTE Supra won all but the first round, losing at a final to Yallon.  With the cancellation of the Street Tire Class, Titan would move to the Pro RWD class with a 2JZGTE powered Celica. The Supra was used by BF Goodrich to advertise its Drag Radials tires which it was equipped with.

With the fourth generation of the 2JZGTE Supra, Toyota took a big leap in the direction of a more serious high performance car. Test model pre-production started in December 1992 with 20 models, and official mass production began in April 1993. The new Supra was completely redesigned, with rounded body styling and featured two new engines: a naturally aspirated 2JZGE producing 220 hp (164 kW; 223 PS) at 5800 rpm and 210 ft·lb (280 N·m) at 4800 rpm of torque and a twin turbocharged 2JZGTE making 276 hp (206 kW; 280 PS) and 318 ft·lb (431 N·m) of torque for the Japanese version. For the export model (America/Europe) Toyota upgraded the Supra turbo's engine (smaller, steel wheeled turbochargers, bigger fuel injectors, etc.). This increased the 2JZGTE power output to 320 hp (239 kW; 324 PS) at 5600 rpm and 315 ft·lb (427 N·m) at 4000 rpm. The 2jzgte turbocharged variant could achieve 0–60 mph in as low as 4.6 seconds and 1/4 mile (402 m) in 13.1 seconds at 109 mph (175 km/h). The 2JZGTE turbo version was tested to reach over 280 km/h (174 mph) all-stock, but the cars are restricted to just 180 km/h (112 mph) in Japan and 250 km/h (155 mph) elsewhere. European versions also had an air intake on the bonnet (hood). Drag coefficient is .31 for the naturally aspirated models and .32 for the turbo models and N/A's with the rear spoiler. 

Did all the information about 2JZGTE change your mind? As you can see...numbers don't lie!  The 2JZGTE engine is a worthy runner-up of the highest performance engines ever build in the history of motorsports.  Unparallel quality, easy to upgrade, definitely the... boss, a serious race proven engine of  international recognition!

2JZGTE Engine Information
  • The 2JZGTE is an inline-layout, six-cylinder, belt-driven dual-overhead camshaft, air-intercooled, twin-turbocharged, cast-iron engine designed and manufactured by Toyota Motor Corporation that was produced from 1991 until 2002 in Japan. Final development of the 2JZGTE was outsourced to German engineering firm Johann A. Krause Maschinenfabrik GmbH for refinement to meet production car homogolation requirements set forth by the former All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship. Two gearboxes were offered for the engine:
    • Toyota A341E 4-speed automatic
    • Toyota V160 and V161 6-speed manual (jointly developed with GETRAG GmbH as the Type 233)  

    The 2JZGTE styled by the famous Italdesign Giugiaro firm, and equipped with an independent, double-wishbone suspension setup, the Toyota Aristo was launched in October 1991, offering two inline-6 powered versions for the Japanese market: the 3.0Q and 3.0V. The Aristo 3.0Q featured a 2JGE engine  which produced 226 hp (169 kW), while the Aristo 3.0V was equipped with a 24-valve twin-turbo 2JZGTE engine which produced 276 hp (205 kW). This twin-turbo engine was the same as could be found in the Mk IV Toyota Supra (JZA80). In 1992, a third model, the V8-powered 4.0Zi-Four (codename UZS143), joined the Aristo lineup. This model came with standard four-wheel drive and a 250 hp (186 kW) 1UZFE engine. This V8 had also been used in the first generation Lexus LS and the Toyota Crown Majesta. However, the only engine available for inport markets was the 2JZGTE inline-6.
