They include the Sonic, Fiat 500, Ford Fiesta, Honda CR-Z, Mini Cooper, and Scion tC. The Veloster's price is competitive. The Veloster's exterior styling stands out. The nose features a big, deep grille, LED accent lights, and more scoops than Baskin

Which turbo should i get for my scion tc?
the ZPIracing scion tc turbo kit-stage 0 or the GReddy scion tc turbo kit? both gives the car roughly around 100 hp but the ZPI only gives 6 psi and the GReddy gives 8.5 psi. (asked by Brandon N on January 01, 2007)
A: Turbo kits with low boost and proper tuning will not blow your engine. 6psi is fine that is why many turbo-charged cars/trucks come de-tuned, meaning that the factory had low boost for increased reliability. So, if you buy a factory turboed car you can usually up the boost and for $20- $300 have 30-50hp increases. That doesn't mean that the engine cannot handle higher boost, they can and do, and aftermarket improves the ECU to accomodate fuel/air curves.
However, your vehicle does not have stronger stock internal parts so keep the boost low and make sure to have a performance shop tune it if you don't buy the all-inclusive kit.
One guy responded to you and claims to be a mechanic and lists a Z-28, 350Z on his resume. I assume he likes big engine cars, he's just scared that your little turboed Toyota will dust him in a race. The people that love big engines are always the ones to complain that small engines are not good. Tell him to go pay the high gas while the WRX, EVO, NEON, Mazda Speed 6, VW 2.0T (properly tuned), Golf R32 perform as well as his car for less money and less gas.
Then he says that no aftermarket is as good as the manufacturer can make... Hmm... great manufacturers such as Ford that didn't adress the Pinto gas-tank problem? GM's quad 4 engines that had headgasket failures, the after market responed with a superior Multi-layer-gasket, but it was cheaper for GM to build a bigger engine instead of a more sophisticated engine.
Example... Mitsubishieclipse turbos 1st generation had engine "crank-walk" problems. Mitsubishi didn't want to recall the problem but luckily after-market machine shops stepped in with solutions. Saab has so much faith in their turbos that they now don't even advertise the car as a turbo even though it has a turbo, they warranty it just the same.
The M series BMW has turned to turbos instead of building some giant v8 motor which would have cost millions more to produce than a simple turbo. Also, all modern diesels that I know of are turbo-charged and the tractor trailers are EXTREMELY reliable. (answered by e e on January 01, 2007)
A: I say get the GReddy turbo kit i think that one should give you more Torque along with the 100 h.p. and don`t forget the inter-cooler as well! (answered by italianpanther7 on January 01, 2007)
Can my turbo scion TC have engine damage because its been running really rich?
I installed my turbo kit a few months ago, and I've been doing oil changes often because the car is running rich, and after a while the oil smells like hints of gas. I've been neglecting getting it dyno tuned, because I wanted to get a catback 1st. I just got the catback two days ago and its installed. I didn't want to pay to get it tuned twice. The car is running with the base map as of now, and I always use premium gas and the boost is set to 5lbs on a apexi digital boost controller. My mileage is about 48000 miles (i drive 100 miles a day), of those about 3000 miles are with the turbo kit on. I have a huge intercooler and always use synthetic oil and an AEM filter. It also has a standalone ems. Is there any way of knowing if I have engine damage with out removing the block. I don't see any leaks and any smoke. I maintain my car pretty cool. Please give me your thoughts.
It was what I could afford at the time. I didn't plan on fixing up the car. It became a hobby. My next car will be RWD. Several people are running the same kit @ 340hp to the wheel. Its a standalone Hydra EMS w/ 3bar sensor and wideband, 880 injectors, 3" down pipe, 3" s-pipe, 3" catback (no cats lol), equal length manifold, Forced Performace gt35/75 turbo, and a vibrant performance intercooler good for 800hp, Apexi Digital Boost controller, innovative wideband AFR, defi bf white egt/fuel pressure/oil pressure./water temp/oil temp. It was not a cheap kit at all. I love the car, although its FWD.
I wasn't into cars before I got this car. It was just used as a daily driver. So of course its wasn't bought with a racing perspective in mind. It just happened that way. So anyone with negative thoughts on this can shove it. Now that I have learned from the tons of mistake I made on my 1st platform vehicle which was the scion Tc, i'll be more prepared to make a monster on my next car.
I'm hoping its not the piston rings. I remember when I first installed it I drove it really slow for 1000 miles not hitting boost and checking the oil. It smelled like gas well. I'm hopings its the excess gas that wasn't burned thats getting passed the piston rings. But, you are right if the condition has worsened I might have ring damage. Good thing I have friends that are mechanics lol. (asked by ippskidder on September 24, 2007)
