What does it say on your engine, VVT-i or VVTL-i?

or

Its a GT with a brake upgrade?


6400rpm is max hp for a GT, I think thats what you got.

Its has a ingen dress up kit installed so I can't tell. The vin number comes up as a gts. I can hear the lift change so it is not just peak horse power. It sounds great. I am not pissed I am just confused. Where can i find the part number on the tranny so i can do a little more research on this??? Also, what is the red line for a gts????

If it had a Injen Dress up kit then it should be a GTS becaue Injen does not make a kit for the GT

How much did you pay for it?? The price could reflect if the chanced it to a 5 speed.

I'll post some pics. I got it for 11K with 60k on it. I think that is a deal even with 1 missing gear.

Another few ways to tell...

is your exhaust tip curved/oval or flat/round? (curved is GTS)

tach on a GTS is 9k RPM... GT is only 8k RPM

speedo on a GTS is 160mph... gt is only 140mph

rear brakes on GTS ar disk... gt has drum

engine on gts displays metal vaulves... gt displays plastic covers

gts comes with leather seating... gt is cloth seating

gts has side air bags on the seats... gt does not

gts comes standard with sunroof and power windows

there are several other ways to tell the difference, but after just looking at the above listing of obvious visual features, you will know exactly what you got.

1) I roll in a gts, and it doesn't have the side air bags. it was an option, not standard equipment in 2002.

2) Dude, check your Intake manifold (the do-whacky that's bolted to the head on the front side of the motor that goes to your throttle body/i?take tube/Air Filter box) if it's made out of silver metal, you've got a VVTL-i motor. if it's made out of black plastic, it's a VVT-i (no lift)

3) check the side of the cylinder head, on the passenger side of the engine bay, if the "YAMAHA" logo is stamped on there, you have VVTL-i, if not, you don't.

4) stock exhaust on the gts has a resonator canister welded up just before the exhaust tip. the gt has only tubing up to the tip (btw, gts also has an oval weld-over tip, not a round one)

Your car may just be a GT with a VVTL-I swap. I hope you have success with your new ride.

well obviously the thing to do is check all differences between the GT and GTS. That's simple.

How could someone possibly put a 5 speed tranny into a GTS? That's not even safe for the motor.

OK this is simple ... just take your car to the closest Toyota Dealer or back were you brought it from.

Ask them exactly what did you buy, a GT or GTS. Depending on their answer then ask them what is the configuration of the car or Tell them your concerns about the car and see what they say.

I believe all your questions have been answered to the best of everyone's ability.

It's up to you now, since you own the car.
