General Comments:

I've had this car for two years now, and so far its my second GT Turbo. My first, was a 1993 square lamp GT, was quick, but did NOT like the bends one bit. This could have been sorted with some good coilovers, however, but I got rid of it. Then came along my current GT Advance Turbo. The rarer version. There was quite a few modifications done when I purchased the car:

FMIC

HKS BOV

Front Mount Air Filter

Blitz exhaust

Blitz Boost controller

Blitz SAFC II

HKS Guages

Blitz Turbo Timer

HKS FCD

Rota Light weight alloys

Performance leads

Cusco struts

Samco hoses

TRD performance shocks and springs

And one sexual Tom's Bodykit.

Around 200BHP give or take a few ponies

All I've done since is added a HKS Actuator, I got that last year. And since its been running 1 bar boost and not one thing wrong. It's a very very quick starlet and it puts Type R's to shame.

I will only sell this car for an EVO ;P

I would recommend these little pocket rockets, fuel consumption is very good when you're not flat to the mat all the time!! They are VERY easily tunable, good tyres good suspension set up and they can take bends very well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Faults:

The leads were too short and I think let water in so it misfires.

General Comments:

This is one pocket rocket 0-60 in 6.0 seconds.

The turbo responds pretty well and won't let you down.

I started laughing when i raced the Celica and went past it at 150 KM/H

I own the fastest gt turbo in Pakistan. My car does 0-60 in 3.77seconds with a top speed of 160mph.

Juicy.

The car has a 2 litre Pulsar engine, slammed and cammed boys. Big juicy Garret turbine, Kent cams, polished and ported; stripped out this car is a beast!!
