Might be getting a GTS...


Well I've been seriously looking at GTS'the past few days, and I may possibly get one.

I've asked this before but I just want ot make totally sure, I'd probably be looking at an '03 GTS 6-speed and trade in my '02 GT 5-speed.

Should I ask them to swap out my TRD exhaust onto the GTS, or would that just be stupid? I'm sorry that I'm asking this again, I just want to make sure... Thanks for the help everyone, its very much appreciated smile

confused Cause from what I last recall some things, like (TRD) exhaust will fit, but not work like the exhuast made for the particular app. confused I'm just not 100% sure, which I would really like to be before I decide to sell my exhuast or something.

Okay, so I don't think I'll bother trying to swap the exhausts if I get the car.

Trade in was only 10,500 frown angry

turbo's gonna cost more in the long run for maintenance and upkeep when you can just get a reliable gts and not worry about problems, and i say keep ur exhaust and sell it privately

I would actually owe $12000 on the GTS.

$4K would barely pay for the Turbo. Then there's install, and maintenance. While I haven't by any means ruled out getting a Turbo, I'm now thinking more about just getting some sort of FI, like an S/C or something, maybe nitrous.

+ There really wouldn't be much I'd want to do to a GTS. After having my GT going to that much power would be more than sufficiant (For a while anyways grin ). So I'd save quite a bit of money in th elong run/.
+GTS also has disc brakes all around and other cool features.

But for now it looks like I'm stickin with my GT smile / frown It looks like I'll have it through the rest of college, so FI might actually be a good idea.

If you could, g'head and get the GTS. I was thinking about trading my GT in but it's a 2000 with a lot of miles on it so I dismissed the idea.

I can't really afford the extra $12k right now frown I already checked used, and everyone one of them I've looked at sounded like like either the clutch was almost gone, or the tranny was pretty much destroyed frown ohboy

I'm well aware of what the GTS is like smile I'm just imagining what my GT would be like with 163 whp, and its torque curve wink

Probably won't quite get it there but close smile
