    Similar performance over all but sod all torque, you need to get them over 6k to get them to move iirc.

    I work for toyota, and would have to say i have never been impressed with the celica T sport or GT, both of which come with the 1.8 vvtli engine
    which is 190bhp
    The engine works a bit like a civic V-tec but dosent have as much kick to it
    when you hit the high rev range
    And any i have driven have never felt a match for my GSI

    My mate has one and my GSi Vec will sit with it easily and pass it top end! But hes recently spent a shed load of money on it with Tein adjustible coilovers, supercharger etc and theres no chance of even a VXR sittin with it!
