Did some research and it looks like the 2jzgte came with the vvti starting in 1997. Just wanted to know if the 1997-1998 supra came with the 2jzgte vvti engine.

The VVT-i 2JZ-GTE was only ever sold in Japan unfortunately. The 1998 US-spec Supra N/A got the VVT-i 2JZ-GE (which is interesting because they didn't in Japan - the N/A never got VVT-i).

Jeff, are you suggesting that the US got the cool engine for a change? Very odd...

Was this for emission control reasons, perhaps?
Precisely. The US Spec OBD-II ECU and everything was sorted out for the VVTi 2JZ-GE for its use in the SC300 and GS300 (Soarer and Aristo) so they just used that. Good to see you guys

Good to see you back here, too :)

This place has been a ghost town since the "upgrade" and has really been missing input from knowledgeable members such as yourself
