this has been covered about 23483490823490823 times already. It's too cost intensive. Just sell your gt and buy a gts.

That's because all the threads about this topic are the same. The answer is that it costs too much to do it, so just sell your gt and buy a gts. End of story.

I have done the research...it really is not worth it. The price tag was about $9,000. Either keep what you have or just trade it in. By trading it in you will have less problems in the long run. Plus Toyota's powertrain warranty will be voided thumbsdown

you could do it for about 3000 if you did it yourself...

depends on the price of the engine and tranny...

Right on with the price, and as others have said, just sell your GT and get a GTS.

you could just trade the car in for the GTS...and have the same things without the WORK of getting a swap...that can lead to problems, won't be perfect you know. just my opinion.

i know, i went to the dealer today. that fucker said he'd give 9 for it because it was clean, but i cant do that because i owe 11,8 on it and the gts was 14,9 you know?. you ppl were right they didnt care about the stuff done to it. what was asking do you think my car would be worth selling for 11k with all the stuff i have done to it, look in gen discussion for my post. i get the point with the swap thumbsup grin thumbsup

mods on a car mean LESS money at a dealer.

yep...you can only sell it privately for that much...

more shit on it = less value for dealer cause people aren't going to wanna buy a car with it on...it's not like there's always a kid looking for a car like that.

a Turbo would be cheaper and take less time to install
