Before you read, know that I have absolutely no knowledge on car performance whatsoever. My dog and I are on the same level to tell the truth.

As most of you know, I drive a '05 Scion TC. Since I will be done buying car audio here in a month or two, I need something new to waste my money on so why not performance. For car audio we refer idiots to bcae1.com so is there a bcae1.com equivalent for performance? Lol. I know my car isn't exactly the fastest car on the road but I'm embarrassed when a semi accelerates faster than me (exaggeration for you retards). I want to learn so when I start making better money over the summer I will know what I want and need and understand it on a relatively basic level. So link it up fellas :-)

PS, no ripping on Scions. I'm not looking to race my car or anything, just want it to be respectable for lack of a better term.

Well first you need an oversized spoiler and a fartcan exhaust. These add 10 hp each.

Then get some stickers and add up 1 hp for each one. Type R stickers give 2 hp.

Then get a neon kit where every neon light adds 3 hp.






Seriously though I only work on trucks and cars with big engines, the old school way of making power. So I would be of no help to you.

^ there's no replacement for displacement.

On topic, you could start with a performance chip or programmer as a simple plug in. Cold air intake. New, bigger exhaust, just for simple starters.

Maybe I will Jules just because of people like you and the shenanigans you pull lol :-)

MS, thanks? I'm not going for a ricer bud lol. I'd off myself if I did that.

Thieves, thanks for the starting point bud.

Very mis-leading title. I was all set to type 6-7 times a nite.
But your looking to mod a scion?
I believe there is a scion forum out there.

But as Thieves said, Chip, cold air, exhaust. Then its turbo, fuel pump, cam. idk, check youtube for fast scions and see what they run..

Haha I know that. Just saw the opportunity for a joke :-)


Intake, exhaust, and PCM tune are the most common mods done, also the least expensive.

Good looks fellas.

Marc, there is a Scion forum which I am part of. I just don't like the people over there for the most part so I figured I'd ask my buddies here lol. I'll eventually ask them over there once I learn some stuff.
