Have you guys seen the numbers on this S/C?TRD
has them listed at 40HP and 38 FT LBS for the matrix.
If you get 50-60HP and 50 FT lbs, you'll be the same level as the GTS, and it will be a pretty penny.
I was hoping for like 230-240HP, maybe 250.
yup but TRD
s/c are carb approved..and if it is 40lbs more of tq it will put the GT at 165lbs of tq...i think GTS is only 130lbs. 230-250 looks more like turbo numbers for the GT...but s/c are "to the belt" which means no "turbo lag"
and a little quicker from a stop
yeah, but is that worth $4K? And the ugly hole in the Hood
I hope they can put this into the GTS somehow, THAT would be nice. More torque at the bottom end and 250HP
Too bad that will never happen. Hotchkis TVS, here I come!
to be honest we don't know the price yet...on some toyota sites they have the s/c at 2500 (this is for the 1zz corolla/matirx), even some local dealers here have s/c for tundras and such for only 19999...so unless we get an official price we can only look at what is already out from TRD
. the hole in the Hood
thing...well if it were up to me i'd just keep my oem Hood
and get another Hood
to put that TRD
s/c cover in. install shouldn't be too high since the TRD
s/c in a bolt on but again we still don't know. i wouldn't pay more than 500 for install though.
hotchkis wouldn't be a bad decision at all. if you can make your car turn inside an italian euro sports car more power to you
...lol- i could see enzo ferrari turning in his grave..lol
