Closer to 200-215. I've yet to talk with a sc'd TC owner who likes the system. TRD missed the mark on the TC for some reason. Not promoting a race, but I've beaten more than a couple STOCK 5spd TC's, and been owned my modded ones. For the most part, we're fairly even with similar drivers.

interesting.

TC's are nice cars. I think our interior is better, but man, id love that moonroof they got.

I regularly beat my buddys SIR hatch with my 05 with only MS CAI and a custom race pipe, I think his is an 01, ........its the old body style, anyhow, he only has power to keep up in the upper RPM range, my extra torque killes him 8)
