Car Parts Suitable for Toyota 7M-GE/7M-GTE Models, Melbourne, delivered Australia wide

The 7M-GE and 7M-GTE were both high-performance engines used by Toyota in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Only two Toyotas ever featured the engines: the Toyota Cressida and Toyota Supra. Both engines were very advanced for their time. The 7M-GE came standard with the Cressida from 1989-1992, offering loads of power, excellent fuel economy, and proven reliability. The 7M-GTE was simply a turbo version of the 7M-GE offered only in the Supra Mk III and is the more popular engine of choice for tuners. The engines had a 3.0L 24-Valve DOHC Twin Cam setup which provided plenty of power for both the Cressida and Supra.


The 7M-GTE is an Inline 6, or “straight 6” engine. The 7M-GE and 7M-GTE were both discontinued sometime after 1992 with the demise of the Cressida in North America.

The Toyota 7M-GE introduced in the early months of 1986 is a 3.0-litre (2954 cc) 24-valve (4 valves per cylinder) DOHC/fuel-injected engine. The valves are spaced at a performance-oriented 50° angle. Cylinder bore is 83 mm (3.27 in) and stroke is 91 mm (3.58 in).

The 7M-GE was produced from 1986 through 1992. Output was 190-204 hp (142-152 kW) at 6000 rpm and 185–196 lb·ft (250-265 Nm) at 4800 rpm.

The turbocharged 7M-GTE was produced from 1986 to 1992. Output was 173 kW (232 hp) at 5600 rpm and 325 N·m (240 ft·lb) at 4000 rpm for most 5 psi (0.34 bar) versions. It was Toyota’s top performance engine until it was replaced by the 1JZ-GTE.

A special 7M-GTEU version, with a modified CT26 high-flow turbocharger and large volume intercooler, pushed output to 267 hp (199 kW) at 5600 rpm and 358 N·m (264 ft·lb) at 4400 rpm. This was used only in the racing homologation Toyota Supra Turbo A road and race cars. The Turbo A models also measured air based on manifold pressure rather than using an air flow meter, had a larger intercooler, larger throttle body, optimized CT-26 turbo, and various other differences. It was the fastest Japanese car at the time. The homologation was for the Group A series. The Group A Supra with a 7M-GTE and CT26 turbo produced 433 kW (580 bhp).
