I always liked these if i needed a hatch/estate a IS sportcross/altezza gita be my first choice over a 3 series/ accord/mazda 6 for sure ! You can get 3.0 ones a Gita AS300 the 2.0 3S-GE was only for the Altezza sedan, in turns the Altezza sedan didnt come with a 3.0 only ones sold outside japan as IS300 !

Yeah i myself was after reading it again , just edited it lol simple terms the RS200 engine isnt fitted to the gita/sportcross but a 3.0 was ! whereas a 3.0 isnt fitted to the altezza sedan maybe performance of the RS200 isnt far off from the 3.0 engine (IS300)? :|

Gita come in both AS200 (1GFE) & AS300 (2JZGE) spec

Nice motor irishsonny. Maybe lower it on some big rims to start with then ad a few subtle mods like front strut brace & stiffer rear sway bar to get it around corners quicker
