I've had my car for about a week.. and put 250 miles on it
(just love to drive this thing!) anyway.. i've noticed that the engine is one of the smoothest engines i've ever driven.. anyone agree with this? other thoughts?

I LOVE the engine in the tC, and I have also often thought that it is smooth as butta..

it is a great engine. the whole set up of the car is great though. there is no back pressure even when the car is stock. i love it!

i am very impressed with how the engine performs.....i was thinking about getting the supercharger when it comes out but now i am questioning whether it would be worth it.

Anyone find a slight engine vibration at about 4k rpms? A little buzz sort of thing?
I don't think my auto tranny ever get up to 4K rpms...

Yes. Honestly I don't find this engine all that smooth... It's great up to about 4k, but then it gets twice as loud and just seems like it's struggling.

Ok well at least it's not my engine. It doesn't feel like it's a piece of crap, it's just that if I have the clutch in and I rev, at about 4k and higher there is some vibration that resonates into car.
Exactly. It doesnt' feel like the engine is going to fly out of the car or anything, but there's no doubt there's a difference between 3,500RPM and 4,500RPM.

could it be where the vvt-i is adjusting for more power?? otherwise is it a loose exhaust pipe? just throwing stuff out there.. i haven't had it 4k rpms yet.. still breaking my tC in..

There are some RPM points in an engine where the harmonic balance will be off by a little. I do see what you are saying though, because mine does it at 600rpm.....kinda shakes the car a little! Unless its a severe high-speed vibration, i wouldnt worry to much about it....- t
