<font color='#000000'>I think that the GT and the GTS already are the same engine, only the GTS has some sort of Timing ECU difference that gives it more hp, and a turbo. It would be a hell of a lot easier to just plop in a turbo and a get jet chip rather than to swap a whole engine.</font>

<font color='#000000'>Yeah, found out you are right about the turbo and ecu. But is is definately the same engine. So, if I were you, I would focus on getting performance upgrades for your current engine, and not worry about a big, expensive swap.</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>It's more efficient to turbo a 7th gen GT than GTS, the stock compression on the GT is better for turboing than the GTS, it's not gonna stop me though!  My wallet might...


It's only worth swapping the GTS engine into the GT if you have manual.  Don't bother if you have auto.  An auto GTS is about the same as a manual GT, lift is only a little boost and for general road driving it's doesn't come into play that much.

If you have a manual GT go for a manual GTS.

If you keep the stock gt engine get a  good exhaust, and then either a turbo, or a cai and headers and I think someone out there has started to make new cams for the GT as well.  None yet for the GTS.</font>
