GTS for gsx or sti?

hey wassup. i havent posted in a while...ive been busy making a lot of cheddar... well here it is. i love my gts. for many reasons. but the only thing i dont like about it is that it doesnt have good aftermarket support. for drag racing. im into drag and road racing. but more drag. well you'll probably already know i have my celica on juice and im probably running somewhere around low 14's. buttttt thats not fast enough...
so here it is again.
should i keep my celica and buy a gsx...and mod the fuck out of that...
orrr sell celica and get wrx sti...
i plan to do this in the next 3 months
please post all ur comments and opinions
they will be very helpful
peace!

You could probably do more aftermarket on the gsx than the sti. The sti is already decked out and I can't see it looking good with a body kit and whatnot (I don't like the looks to begin with). There are just more mods you could do to the gsx, so I say go for that.

If you want to really fix up your ride, and put the hard work into it, go for the gsx, but if you want to buy a car that is fast as hell already go for the STI. Im not sure what the aftermarket support for the STI will be like, but starting from 300hp is a good start. The STI looks pretty good stock, except for the Hood scoop, but with a kit it would look tight. My opinion go for the STI.

I'd get an RX-8 instead of one of those, if I had a choice ... otherwise the GTS or STI

The RX-8's are tight. My roommate is sellin his GS-T and he may be gettin one of those. If you want to put the RX-8 in the equation, then I say go for that.

i would take out the GSX, and replace it with an EVO since you make hella money thumbsup that would be a good choice, EVO or STi =)

this is not one of your options, but i say get a supra. If not, then sti. A buddy of mine has a gs-t and he got his transmission replaced two times. He told me himself that the reliability aren't that great once you start boostinq high. iono just my .o2 cents.
