What do you all think. I have a GT with 95K miles on it. I saw a yellow GTS with TRD kit. I still owe about 2X what its worth and is it worth it to trade it in for a new one? I really wanted a GTS, but stupid me, they didn't have one when I went, so I got the GT.
ur probably gonna lose a bunch of money, but if thats not to worry about, then definetely go for it. Performance mods cant be taken from gt to gts. there different. get gts if you want lift, and 6 spd. if you want speed, then Turbo ur car. or else swap the engine. turboing a gt will be faster than gts and it is more Turbo friendly cz it got low compression
Its a better investment to keep the GT IMO. I wish I had a GTS too. I did the same thing you did and got hastey with the buy and took the GT because they didnt have a GTS. You can still make the GT fast and if you keep it, it will be easier to do that from a financial point of view.

basically, there is not a TON of difference between the gt and the gts. sure the gts has 40 more whp (due to 'lift) and you can get a 6-spd. but it's still a celica and there is still not enough difference to justify a trade in my opinion. moneywise, it's just not worth it.
I have a GT and also thought about tradin in mine for a GTS but i still owe 6g on it, id say stick with your GT, youd lose a good bit of money. plus theres nothin wrong with GT, GTS is awsome but as long as its a celica
i am actually thinking about doing this too, my 02 gt auto as 30k miles on it and i want a gts 6speed, i should get an 01 right? must be either 00 01 or 02 so i cant fit my vizage kit on there oh yea, ut the 02 has the rev limiter. i want carbon blue, that color is looks soo damn sicck
