I'm sure it would. I'd say somewhere around a 6.4 or lower. But Its hard to say. It depends on the launch and your tires. Since we don't have an LSD, locking up with that much more power could prove to be quite hard.

yes definitley mid-6 second material. I think the s/c will bring this car where it needs to be fore aggresive daily driving.......but definitley not fast enough to put it ahead of any real sports cars. - t

I like how you put that TCrazy, i mean, the tc cant ever really be with a TRUE sports car, but with the S/C, Cai, Exhaust........that Really does put it in a different class, and who knows what other mods they will have out in a few months.........I think that it will almost drop us to the WRX level, what do you think about the Quarter mile time with the S/C?.............and do you think it is rea lly worth the 3000 dollars?

I would neeeeeeever pay 3000 bucks for something that will lower my gas mileage and decrese the longevity of my vehicle......especially something that only makes it a "faster"-slow car. If it was a fast car, and a supercharger was availible under warranty then sure, id go for it.......but the tC needs about 150hp to be competitive with fast cars. - t

Hey greg, the name is Rob, and yes I finally got my exhaust. We definitely need to meet up man. Drop my a PM and we'll arrange a time. I've seen two blue ones (one with a really ugly metal wing) and a flint mica one. Rumor has it that there is a girl driving one around here somewhere too... and from what I hear... she's HOTT! But about the SC, yeah it will make the tC faster, but definitely not WRX range... the WRX is AWD... a launching monster and its HP and torque would still far out shine that of the TC with a SC, but maybe something more along the lines of an old 90-99 eclipse turbo FWD or a neon SRT-4... maybe the srt-4 is pushing it (they're damn quick), but it will definitely put is in a ranking far above most other how should I say... "mild Imports"
