Default Any difference between a 97 2.5 gt and a 98 2.5 gt

hey guys! my mom has a 97 2.5 gt auto. I just bought a 98 2.5 gt 5-spd. I noticed that the engines run a bit differently. mine seems a big louder. is there any difference between the 97 and 98's i knwo the hp is the same did the torque change? or could it be just because mine is a 5-spd? any ideas?

appreciate ur responses

Rob

Rob, Different headlights and "de-powered" airbags was about it. Engines same-same 165HP 162 lb-ft. Have any luck with the HVAC lights using that link? It also has pics of the other switch lamps, like fog-lights. Again, they should light with the dash-lights, as well as show when ON.
Your first mod should be a rear sway-bar from an OutBack; 18mm vs OEM 15mm, and CUSCO or KartBoy shift bushings for the 5spd will really firm up the shift action without adding a lot of NVH. The bar and bushings should run under $100 from a recycler and the shift-bushings under $40. I think scooby-mods has a how-to on that as well. Again, welcome!!

Sure! http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...hp?threadid=91
Oh, I think it includes part #'s. You can get them from the dealer for a reasonable price. Wish I'd had those pics and instructions when I went through it in late '00!!
