FINALY

Ok so from the 3 weeks of being a new member of this site
I Understand a few things now.
As some of you know I drive a mustang
ya ya A mustang I love my car but I dont think it loves me
costs way to much I spend my money on repairs not mods that I want.
But when it comes down to it I want a celica
the question I had was which one GT or gts?
GtS quiker with the lift but harded to mod
GT slower but easer to mod
GTS If I can find a used one wich in wpg seems to be a big chalang
or a new GT
eather way I want the to have the Mods and have this car be a 12 sec car
It doesnt matter cant loose with Ither one because they are both sweet cars the 2 big diffrences that I see are all disk breaks and the lift.
Now I do want a GTS but I think if I see the right GT it wont make that big of a diffrence becasue they both look sweet

you want a 12 second car? get a GT (manual of coarse)and ...

you'll need:

complete Turbo kit
boost controller
drag radials or slicks
PFC
ACT stage 4 clutch
lighweight flywheel


all together, about 10 grand worth of mods, installs and tuning.

What Spatz said, of a GTS with fully tuned PFC, CAI, exhuast, header, clutch, flywheel, lsd, of if the PFC works with Turbo you could go that route. Good luck thumbsup

A GTS with the same mods would most likely be faster, but you would have to lower the compression rate.

if you want 12 sec car, get gts.
from stock gts has lotta pro and cons. but with power FC you will only have pros. and jus on that mod can get you up to 13.7 in quarter mile. and exhaust, Intake, pulley, 3zz or maybe even blitz s/c will definitly get you up to 12 or maybe less.
gt is quick in stock, but even after the mod its not as fast as gts. take to many of people from this site, many have gone 13 secs with their gts.

A $1200 standalone engine computer. Lots of the mentioned items are insanely expensive, keep that in mind.
