i tried to search for this on the forum, but no luck. sad.gif

I have a 2005 Elantra GT. Is it equivalent to the XD or XD2?

I want to do some performance upgrades and there seems to be more information for the XD and XD2 model number then can be found just looking for Elantra GT.
04-06 is an XD2, 01-03 is an XD.
^^^ What he said. The differences are few but important. The engine head changed to variable-valve timing CVVT (and everything related to that too) the air intake sensor changed from MAP to MAF, the seats are gray and perforated instead of black and not-perforated, a lot of the dashboard was re-done along with the instrument cluster, steering wheel (the emblem wasn't silver before '04), the LATCH anchor points for child seats moved and the front and rear styling changed (hood, lights, grille, bumpers, etc). A lot of parts are interchangeable - some aren't.
