    I love cars. Not a big import fan though. I have a 00 Mustang with just a lil work :dgrin
    At the old dealer I worked in in FL there was a technician that had a scion TC with a turbo was pumpin and impressive close to 400 whp and he had another DD scion with a turbo that was 250whp.

    I hate cars. :p



    Kidding!


    Good luck with the turbo project. We don't have the Scion line in Canada yet. Not really a big fan of them, but I'm sure the Tc would scoot with forced induction.

    I love cars.
    I just am not an import person.
    taking a 2.0L engine and pushing it to it's limit is still not getting you near the power that a good-ol V8 will give ya.
    plus ... I drive a Chrysler 300C with the 350ci V8.
    gotta love a luxury car you can drive with two kids in the back and still smoke a Mustang GT from the light :dgrin

    If you want speed... pure, uncompromized speed....
    get a bike.
    0-60 in around 3 seconds.
    power to weight is more than a lambo or ferrari.
    and you also only pay $10K or LESS for a brand new one.

    You mean a BMW M3? That's the best kept secret in performance machines! That's one badass little car.

    I can't say that I like cars but I need one to get around. I own two though.
    I mostly drive a 2002 Jeep Wrangler. I like and need the four wheel drive in winter, but it has a soft top and side curtain windows which make it hard to heat and see out of.
    My other car is an '89 Porsche 911-T that I bought ten years ago. It's not a good winter car either as it sits low to the ground because it has what my boyfriend calls "skirts maybe, or spoilers or ground effect something?" something like that anyway. You guys understand that stuff better. It has an air cooled engine as well, which makes for poor heating and almost 200,000 miles on it. The hood (oops, roof in the US) is removable though which makes it a nice summer car

    weeks. Holden (Opel / Vauxhall) Astra Sri, which is my sporty mid-sized sedan big enough for the family. It has the 2.2 litre direct injection (injectors in the cylinders) engine, lowered suspension, wider tyres and finished with leather seats and so on. Can't wait to get my hands on it to try it out on my favourite winding roads north of Canberra.

    The big wheels and body kit were a little loud for someone my age, so I toned it down in a metallic gunmetal grey.
