2002 GT3 RS cockpit

MoTeC dash
MOMO mod 07 steering wheel

(fairly the same since the beginning, a few basic changes/additions to warning lights/switches)

GT3 RS engine

biggest difference between the 2000 R model, and the RS in the engine bay was the twin restrictor intake, the carbon intake revisions, notice the access holes, and difference in manifold construction

(the quick-disconnect port on left side of engine was for bleeding the cooling system)
