So I pulled up next to my buddy with his 1994 honda prelude Si with intake, and full header back exhaust. He is not your typical ricer, and actually a really nice guy. He revved at me, and I kinda grinned. Now, my car has about 700 miles on it and I haven't even launched it yet. I'm used to my AWD talon that I could rev to 6k rpm and dump the clutch and have no wheel spin, so i wasn't about to try on this run.... I just gave it some gas =o) I pulled him off the line through second by about a car length. Mind you I was shifting around 4.5k and 5k rpm as I am still trying not to beat on my tC too much. He started to gain on me. So I wound out 3rd to around 80 and once again pulled a car length or more on him before shutting down! I'm pretty happy considering he "claims" 200hp at the crank. Chalk another one up for the tC!

Good question.... someone else will have to answer it though. I haven't brought my car even close to red line yet. when I do, I'll let you know, but for the time being, I'd ask this quesiton in the tech forum!

yeah i only got 500 miles on my 2006 tc 5 speed and i floor it everywhre, cause when i drive conservative its just to appealing to let it go till 6k. Nothing is wrong wit it so far, i think the breaking in thing is good but i also think it is good to hit like 5k every now and then during the break in period because the engine needs to be touched every now and then, i just touch it a little more than it needs. = )

Hrm. Took me a bit to realize how FrostbytetC could only have 700 miles on it. This thread came back from being gone almost 2 years... Gotta be some kind of record.

yikes! 75 in second...not in a 5 spd. i'n not exactly sure of the m.p.h since i'm paying most attention to r.p.m, but i would say it goes to about 55-57-ish m.p.h.
