ummm i really don't wanna say, but he got 170 hp, and he would totally smoke me off the line, because he got 180 toque. And the only performance he got is an injen sri, and i got injen sri/ GReddy axle back, and Short Shifter. But very soon that axle back will turn into a cat back. Also i am going to be getting ZPI Racing Aluminum Pulley. So to really find out we would either have to race, or take them to a dyno.

The pulley will get you nothing but potential trouble. You've already done one of the best things you can do with the FN01R-Cs - reduce rotating mass. The pulley claims are just that: claims. They will not increase your horsepower or torque at all, and there are a lot of reasons why they are bad.

Also, what makes you think 180 ft-lbs of torque means anything? It's not possible to compare different drivetrains by the engine's ability to make torque. The tC just happens to have a very low first gear, and it puts a LOT of torque to the wheels, probably more than the Tiburon, so off the line, you'll have the jump. If you lose it, it will be because you shift, not because he has more torque.

The tC looks like a speed beast compared to that Tib. And the tC drives better too. I drove a Tib in FL... the V6. NO BALLS. Didnt even enjoy the ride much. Just comparing driving experiences, I'd say that the tC would smoke that Tib like yesterdays cigar.

well, i guess when my brother gets back from college we will have to race, because that really is the only way to find out who has the faster car. But i still think his car is faster, even though my car is much better looking.
