    Trying to extract extra power out of an engine designed for economy is a waste of time and money. I always laugh at these little rice machines that so many kids drive these days. They make all this noise but barely move under acceleration.

    well personally, i see nothing wrong with taking a car that has absoulutely no horsepower or acceleration and boosting the performace of said car. besides, isnt that where all the greats started? tinkering with their cars trying to mod them to perform better? and so what if they cant aford a fucking muscle car? they make do with what they've got.

    Rant off

    I was feelin the need for more horses tonight as well. It just doesn't compare to my Eclipse. But really, I don't expect it to. Its a truck.

    So yeah, its a truck dude. :thumbsup: And nothing wrong with a truck, but its not meant for going fast.

    I'm not saying to do this, but I'm a kid so I can admit to doing it.

    You could dump the clutch at 2500 RPM. :p


    Disclaimer: This doesn't work in 05+ V6 Tacos! Don't do this. You'll need a new clutch.
