    My computer > yours

    So I'm on my way to work this morning at about 6:30. Heading down a 2 lane highway, wide open spaces, and very little traffic... except for this Tiburon that is about 10 feet off my back bumper at 80.

    So finally she decides to try and pass me. I don't even bother to drop a few gears, I just ease down on the gas in 6th. So she runs up next to me, and I'm just matchin speed, right up until we get to 110. I slow back down to about 105, and she's right there, back above 110, she's got nothing.

    Then my days of owning a fast-looking car came back to me. She must have been hitting her computer's speed limiter.

    I just have a problem with people tailgating me at 85mph (in a 55 no less) and then trying to pass me in the right lane. Had I wanted to blow her away, I'd have dropped down a few gears.

    you think a tiburon is a fast looking car?

    I would have to agree too. For the untrained eye it can look like a supra from far away.

    They are quick stock, but not fast. Kind of like your Evo. They need F/I in order to actually be fast

    My buddy has an 01 Tib, 4 cyl 5 speed. He's got I/H/E, I'd say he's making about 160HP. I can hang with him in 6th gear on the highway no problem. In fact, when I'm following him, even around town he'll be running his car as hard as he can and I'll be shifting at 2K and keeping up just fine

    Tiburon's have to the weakest 6cyl out there! Their 6 puts out what a good N/A 4 does. They need to make a motor for a car and not a mini-van.

    Of course they need forced induction to be fast, it's a freaking 2 liter motor.

    Exactly my point. Waste of time, start with a real motor and if you want more power go F/I from there.

    Sounds of angry bees and gutless low end power don't appeal to me.

    I think they are pieces of shit, because they really are. Mitsubishis are trash, and Evos are one of the most overrated cars ever.

    I've never been more serious in my life actually.

    I didn't say Evos can't be made fast. Hell, any car can be made fast, and many for much cheaper than an Evo. I also didn't say they don't handle well, they definitely do.

    What I'm saying is I think they are crappy cars overall. First of all its a Mitsubishi, probably the shittiest car manufacturer on the planet. They have a not-so-stellar reputation for building cars that are complete garbage. I wouldn't buy a Mitsubishi if you paid me.

    Second of all, the Evo is a 4 door sedan. Slapping a turbo on a FWD based Jap economy car doesn't all of a sudden make it a sports car. Its still a family sedan. Not to mention its ugly as hell with its tacky body kit, rubbermaid interior, and massive wing riding on the trunk. Basically driving one makes you look like a 16 year old boy racer.

    Like I said, you can have a piece of shit that goes fast and handles well, but in the end its still a piece of shit.

    Just my opinion, I would never buy one for those reasons.

    You know, the stock 4g63 engine is the most forgiving engine out there. Its said that no other stock engine can handle more punishment. Especialy from turbos. Stated in many mags and proven by us.
