yeah usually most of the cars are made after june is considered as next year. That's probably why its wire throttle body. So you have to get cars that are 03 or later.
like my car even though i got it on 2000, it was 2001 model

Drive-by-wire is only on the GTS model not on the GT. They are found on 03 and up Celica GTS.

Not even only the 03 GTS Auto, My six speed has a cable but the auto in the lot doesn't.

its probably by the production date. usually like jae said, if its after july or something, they consider it. the date you marked shows that the car was made at that time, urs is 03. maybe the throttle cable was removed the ones produced after 01/03 ?

the 2003 celica t-sport gts does NOT have DBW.

both auto and manual GTS should have DBW in the US.
