If you really do have a GT-S then you, you got a turbo, and a DOHC v-6. Naturally aspirated Hondas...r fast. +V-tech.

I do have a gts, and my engine does say DOHC, but im pretty sure there is no turbo!...

a gts is no different than a gt other than different rims, spoiler, chrome muffler tips, silver racing strips, and different decals. no turbo, or other engine differences

yeah. matt's right....there was never a factory made turbo probe. EVER.

Huh... I'd say no doubt, you should have that one... vtec's don't seem to be that much faster. I know variable timing is supposed to be better all-around performance but I've raced a newish ('03-'04 probably, I'd have to look up the body style... not a big Honduh guy myself) Accord V6, I assume it was vtec... either way, the guy definitely had an intake, that's all I could hear on his car at WOT so no exhaust or anything but I held him from off the line up to about 70mph (nose-to-nose) in my slightly-modified '93 2.0 I4 before I backed off. I was kinda hoping maybe it was just a new car and dude didn't know how to drive 'cuz... well... frankly, I'd be pissed if I just forked out that much cash for a brand-new Accord V6 and couldn't even beat an old Probe 4-banger in the 1/8... lol. Anyway, I'm pretty sure the GT could whoop just about any Honduh... except maybe the S2000, that'd definitely take some work...
