I would agree that BYO audio would have to be the best approach if you wanted anything half decent in it.

Werd. I would probably only deaden the doors. Depends how solid they actually feel. I like the thud of a sound deadened door when you close.

Down the bottom it says GT and GT Limited get "6 speakers etc"

with the G and RC models having "2 speaker etc"

Never mind so long as the Vodka flows

I've heard that the stereo will not be one that is in the current toyota's as I first thought.

Possibly similar to jdm ? Has anyone questioned it with the dealers ?

I'm more worries about the actual drivers. But I've already decided in putting my current setup over to the 86.

Being an audiophile, this is quite important for me.

I'm just trying to guess whether worth the hassel of taking my current system out of my shitbox car before I sell it and put it into my 86 or just use the stock system.
