Here it is. The G or G limited cars came with a BEAMS 3S-GE in the later years (I think 97+). That motor puts out 200 horsepower and roughly 150-160 lb-ft torque. If you remember, our American 2nd gen 3S-GTE's put out 200hp/200lb-ft and ran 14.7's stock. I'm guessing that the drivetrain loss on the NA version is going to be lower than the turbo, due to it's lighter internal engine components and possibly revised transmission.You sure? In an MR2 video between, at least what the poster said, a Gen II and a Gen III MR2, one ran a mid 13 and one ran a mid 14. The 13 sec one was the GT-S and the 14 second one was the GT. Seems quite odd that with over 66% more horsepower that you would only drop down one second in the 1/4.

check out this link its for the 1997 gt and gts:
gt and gts is all about options, not the engine
gt and gts was only sold as rhd cars and only in japan (from what i know, but can not confirm to a 100%)
gt is the version with more options (luxury) while the
gts is the stripped down version, which also makes it lighter (this one is more of a race car if you prefer to say that)
