To start...a 2011 tC is a 2nd gen. So you're talking 2005-2010.
As for "performance mods" like:
Won't net you any noticeable horsepower. COMIBINED you're looking at like 7-10 (and a very loud, hideous-sounding car). And that's not anything that you're going to notice or that is going to matter.
Simply put, if you want the tC to be a "fast car" you'll have to go forced induction like S/C or Turbo.
Short of running the engine straight out of the header, an exhaust isn't going to net you crap, full system or not. Post numbers if you've got them.
I threw chips on there because there are 900 on ebay that advertise all sorts of crap. I just don't want this guy wasting his money.
And I didn't mention obvious suspension mods on the list because as I understood it, he was asking about engine performance.
That's not true. Full exhaust you will notice a gain. I particularly noticed gains in the mid-range after a full exhaust on the tC. There are no "chips" for the tC, so you can take that off the list. And you forgot to add things like:
An I/H/E tC can run into the 14sec 1/4 mile range. And when you get into non-power mods like motor mounts and sway bars, then that's where you can see big gains in the handling department.
The S/C is worthless, I'd rather have an I/H/E tC with great suspension.
You must not know of me huh? I reckon I don't come here that often, but I'm one of the OG's with a tC. Boosted and racing one since 2005.
lolz. As someone who used to be full N/A.... no. I gained 5HP and became a loud, annoying tC.
Doesnt the stock 2006 Si run low 14's ? Might as well sell the tC and get one of those, at least they respond to mods thanks to flashpro/aggressive cams. No use taking the tC to the track without LSD anyways... just my opinion.
Then you don't know me very well then. You are the same "spoolme" from ClubsciontC? If so...lol I've seen some of your post. I've never talked down to anyone who didn't deserve it, nor have I talked down to anyone on this page. I just disagreed that you can do stuff with N/A mods and it doesn't take a turbo to have fun.I know of you, i see you talking down to people on here, scionlife, clubtC, and at least 4 well-knows scion tC facebook fan pages. I am not a fan of yours, owning a turbo doesnt make you a racecar driver. :mellow:
This.Probably right there. I just hate seeing people waste money on things they think make them go fast.
