the 7th gen gts could come in automatic as well. vvtli is better then vvti. the gts also had cooler pedals =)
the 00-01 revved higher i believe. later years also was drive by wire. not too sure. correct me if im wrong.

^Bone you man!

GT-S is badass mang. The GT is more for the cool look, and gas economy. GT-S on the other hand is rated 180 hp @ 5600rpm I believe. I've taken to the practice of getting lots of punani in my 7th gen :hehe: Tinted windows are teh shiz.

My only gripe with mine is the gearbox (6spd) is a titch sensitive.

The question is....

Do you want to get wasted by a 5th gen GT? (GT)
Or do you want to waste alltracs? (GTS)

GT-S differences by year.

2000-2001: are pretty much the same.

2002: Because of all the miss-shifts, the transmission was redesigned with wider shift gates. The ratios and everything stayed the same, the ONLY thing that changed in the tranny was the shift gates. Action Package body kit is an option from '02-04.

Also in 2002, the rev limiter was lowered to 7800rpms instead of 8400rpms in the previous years. This was also done to prevent over-rev from mis-shifts.

2003-2004: In 2003, Toyota now uses DBW (drive by wire) in the celica. Instead of there being a throttle cable, the throttle is controlled electronically. The rev limiter is raised back to 8400rpms. There is a revision to the front bumper in 2003. The interior also has a minor upgrade (black plastic panels instead of gray, amber colored instrumentation). There were also a few new paint colors that debuted in 2003.

2005: The 2005 Celica is back with the 7800rpm rev limiter. Tsunami TRD body kit replaces the Action Package TRD body kit.

virgin post. unfortunately i drive a 7th gen gt. The gas mileage is pretty good running a good 35-40 mpg as long as you stay off the rev's..insurance is also a little lower on gt. With my company insurance would have been 400 dollar a year higher for gt-s. The gt-s on the other is a much more fun to drive and the mileage is still pretty good. i'd go with the gt-s
