The Mivec is faster, the engines look quite different. The Mivec has a large rocker cover with oil filler to the left as you look at it. The GR oil filler is on the right and there is a narrower spark plug cover on the top.

What is the engine code or chassis number? This will tell you a lot.

Having driven both, i wouldnt say there is a massive difference, just the sound of mivec on the v6 engine is awesome!

Get the GPX if youve always made cars something better than standard,

GR if you want a neat run around, actually, just get GPX!

From memory, 2.0 v6 GR runs circa 180bhp at fly, Mivec just 200.

There is also the 1.8 :S

theres no a great deal in it, you will get a gr cheaper and with a decat,cone filter with cold air pipe and adjustable fuel regulater you would have no probs keeping up with a mivec.
they are both awsome cars so its just a case of winding one that you like.
