All GT automatics had autostick.
ALL GTs say "Premium Fuel" on flap of gas tank fill.
All GT Convertibles would say 2.4 Liter High Output on right of hatch
All GTs had the letters "GT" on left of hatch

Yep, what he said...

The T-lite and the GT are the same everything with a difference in timing and the more expensive fuel. My Lite will leave almost anything a the light - surprised many with it.

You only have 30 more HP than the non-turbo engine. Those you left at the light weren't/didn't know you were racing.

Good point...
I've got more than the 30 hp additional - few things added and tweaked - Dyno shows 210+...

What a thrill to win a sprint race when the other party isn't racing.

And I think it's funny how fartcan ricers "gun" it off a light going the same speed as me. They make themselves look stupid and me look stealthy
