power comes from the JDM ECU , not the JDM engine...

you should be able to eat a scion tc for breakfast and lunch.

Yeah, but he's not really racing a 88, you've got like 35 more hp than your supposed to.

My g/f got a new tC 5spd. She used to own a 90 AT. Between a 90-93 all-trac stock to stock, it would be a drivers race, seriously.

I like the tC. It is roomier, got 2 sunroofs reclining rear seats, and should be a good daily driver. :D
