Well, I finally got the chance to race my friend in his '07 Scion TC last night. He gets me right off the line by half a car length, but by the time I shift into 3rd, I start to pull past him, and I let off when I'm 2 lengths ahead of him so he could catch up. When he pulls up beside us, me and my girl were laughing and I asked him what happened. He replies "I like the way your car sounds, and I was too busy listening to it."

im sorry but the tiburon doesnt do anything for me. they have a v6 and are still only pushing the stock hp of the gt's. i mean, yeah they have a bit more torque, but for having two more cylinders, im just not impressed.

he'll get a jump on you in the beginning due to more torque, but you should be pretty close if you can drive well

It seems like everyone I work with has a TC..... they all know what I drive but never seem to bring it up. I wonder why? :)

haha i was at the dealer yesterday and its right next to a scion dealer. none of them look over at the pontiac dealership. ever.

on a side note, all of the g5 literature at the delaer harps on the fact that the g5 is faster than the TC. pretty humorous.

Thats badass man. I also have a friend that will let me use his repair shop here in town. Its not as good as having access to a GM shop tho..lol

BTW, What do you mean by F/I setup?
Forced Induction?

it's not out yet. chevytech002 on css.net is still testing it. should be out in a week or so. contact speed mafia about it. its their kit.

it uses the c1 procharger instead of the eaton, and its basically bolt on which makes the install really easy

I don't know a whole lot about a procharger. I just heard people mention that term a couple of times. What all does the kit consist of?
