Whats the advantages to have a 85-86gt or a 87-93gt and what are the disadvantages, which is faster stock?

And is the 86 gt carbed or is it fuel injected

The 87 up have better heads, and more piston clearance for bigger cams. The 89 and up have the mass air computers which are compatible with more cams.

The 87/88 tend to be the fastest in stock form, then the 89s and up.

I believe the 87 and up also have an improved front spindle and ball joint, not sure though.

The 86 is lighter than the 87. The 86 heads are a high swirl design and the pistons will not have enough clearance for many cams. Both have 8.8 rears but the 87 does have improved ball joints with stronger front control arms and different brakes.
