1gfe vvti setup

Recommended Posts

Hi all I had my car at the mappers today and he was unsure how to setup the vvti solenoid on my car. I have a Lexus IS200 turbo which has the 1gfe engine. I run a link G4+ storm and there are no base settings for the 1gfe. Could you please advise how to set this up?? Many thanks in advance!!

Can you explain in little more detail please?

How comes there is no base map for the 1gfe engine? 

Cam type? 

Cam control module?

cam angle test?

surely the L/H inlet ect depends on the engine? 

Sorry for all the questions 


Would it help if I upload my map 

This is my map

Hi James

Cam type for trigger 2 vvt will be Inlet/LH

Came type for Di will be Inlet RH

Cam control mode 2GR-FE


When going through the set up if you are unsure of a function right click on the function and it will bring up the help file info for it. This should explain almost all functions well.

If you search 2GR in the help file this will also have a lot of applicable information.


The reason there is no specific 1GR map is due to us not having done one inhouse. We only have maps for cars or engines that we have had as inhouse test units.

could you explain the Inlet/ L/H and Di Inlet R/H please, Also the 2GRFE is a V6 engine and my engine is a 1GFE which is a straight 6 engine NOT a 1GRFE

my vvti solenoid is front left on exhaust side and my cam sensor is back right on my inlet side

Woops sorry was thinking it was the V6 you had!


On an inline engine you will of course only have one intake cam to worry about.

So in this case it will be assigned as Inlet/LH  don't worry about the LH designation as this is only applicable when applied to boxer or V engines.

We will need to know the tooth pattern on the cam is it 3 teeth at 90deg to each with a gap or is it 3 evenly spaced teeth?

This will effect the cam vvt mode selected.
