From what my friend said his gts vin code reads AE88 our sr5s have AE86 in japan ours would be AE85 and gts would be AE86.

Haha. Yes in America, the AE88 VIN code means GTS, and AE86 means SR5. But in Japan, AE86 means GT Apex twin cam, and AE85 is a regular Sprinter. Now the AE85 Sprinter is a cheaper, weaker chassis.

For your searches, all AE86 stuff will work with your car, except obviously engine stuff, and rear end stuff. You can easily switch the rear end to a GTS rear which bolts right up. The suspension is the same all around, and the front brakes are the exact same. Transmission is identical, too. So tu can get a fancy clutch if you want.



But to answer your question, stick it in the back window, so you can read it on your rear view mirror.

Not true, since we came with a different engine we are not the same as an AE85. AE85's came with a 3A-U engine, not a 4A-C, making it a 1.5L not a 1.6L. To know the differences for real, we would have to actually side by side an AE85 to a US SR5, because there had to be manufacturing changes made to accommodate safety standards and emissions in the United States.

It's true about the VINs though, makes it easy to check if it's a true GTS or an GTSR5 when you're looking to buy.

Also, just because Eric made the comment about the weaker chassis, the AE85 had a weaker chassis with fewer spot welds on the rear of the car. Sometimes I wonder if someone actually knows that the SR5 has fewer welds than a GTS, or if they are just bringing over the information they heard from people in Japan dogging on AE85s... But I've seen the welds on a 89 RX-7 that my buddy was seam welding to get it ready for competitions and if that is what a late 80s Turbo Rotary Sports car was sporting, I imagine a stock GTS isn't in much better shape than an SR5 in that arena.

ya i meant vin would be the same im on ebay and craigslist almost everyday for ae86. If I put it on back window it would be reversed when I look at it thru mirror. My front windshield needs replacing or i would put it on a angle at the bottom pass side or driver side in japan lol.
