Went to meet a guy to sell him something and decided to setup a run. He's been wanting to run his 07 Scion tC (160hp) against mah Tibbay (172hp) for a while now. I told a another buddy of mine and he wanted to bring out his new DD to hav fun; an 07 Saturn Aura XR (254hp), very nice car.
All 3 cars are bone-to-tha-muthafkn-stock as can be. Hopefully I'll be able to mod the Tib in the near future though. In case you can't tell from the vid the Aura stays even with me from a 25mph roll (I pull 1/2 car a head when we do a 30mph) and then pulls me by 1/2-1 car above 90mph. I also beat the tC in every scenario, even the last one where I had a bad launch. Enjoy the video (and yes that song was put in there for shits and grins cuz these aren't 800hp Supras racing so they don't deserve cool music).
The video is about the build/mechanical stuff and showing it all work
together.. At the time it wasnt tuned yet and with stock injectors so no
pulls and WOT in this video... I have track/Dyno videos and even short pulls
on my channel that I uploaded after I got the car tuned at Digitun
Made 282whp and 232wtq (lb-ft) on the Dyno on low Boost (0.4bar).

A simple tour of my new (not really new, but you know hat I mean) '03
I purchased it February 13th, 2012. It is a V6, 2.7L engine with 172 horsepower. It's a
very fun ride and an amazing head turner. Some of the things I've done so
far include (some of the things done were done after this video was made):
new rims, 20% tints, new gas/brake pedals, exchanged the low rise spoiler
to the OEM high rise spoiler, DIY subwoofer black/green cable swap,
installed 8000k HIDs (low beams and fogs), and replaced the floating H's
with Tuscani badges.
There's a lot more that I intend to do with the car, but like with all
things, that requires money. So, when I have some decent cash put away I
will move on to the next steps (OBX Type-R catback Exhaust, OBX Headers, an SRI/CAI, angel eyes,
Also, here's an album on Facebook of my Tiburon that I have set to Public
