In the June issue of Import Tuner there is a Power Pages write-up on the Tc. They ran a baseline of 140.4 HP and 150.8 TQ. Then added a non-production version of the AEM cold air intake, this added 3.9 HP and 2.3 TQ.
Next came the D.C. Sports stainless steel exhaust, which as far as I know is another axle-back system, which added another 3.2 HP and 2.9 TQ.
Last came the D.C. Sports Ceramic Race Header (not street legal). This gave the best increase of 8.5 HP and 7.8 TQ.
Now for those of us who can't add that quick, thats 15.6 HP and 13.0 TQ.
All total the final wheel numbers were 156.0 HP and 163.8 TQ.
Not bad for minor bolt-on performance.


But at a retail price of just under $1,500.00 you can make up your mi9nd if it was worth it.

You can get DC header for about $250, build a homemade short ram for $30 and end up with ~11hp/~10tq for under $300. Sounds better than 16hp for $1500

Then just get a real exhaust and you could be looking at almost 20hp for under $1k instead of 15hp for $1.5k

Think about it...that's $500 left over for stickers.

I don't think we'll ever see a *quiet* exhaust that gives significant power gains for a reasonable price.

www.creativecompacts.com has an exhaust for $560 (after shipping...including high flow cat) that showed 12HP gain on the dyno. They give you a choice of mufflers - magnaflow, flowmaster, and borla.

Mine was SUPPOSED to be here today. You know that feeling when the UPS truck shows up? It's great. When the UPS lady told me she, "couldn't find the package on the truck and will be back tomorrow" I nearly strangled her.

np, Damon.

I'm hoping to install it saturday morning before I go to work... I still want to get video of your exhaust for the forum too. Maybe we can do both at the same time. What days off do you have next week?

I haven't checked my schedule for work next week, but if you're in folsom we could meet up for lunch or something.
