    05 STi vs Tiburon tuscani

    I was driving along when i see headlights comming quickly from behind me. I look and see a tiburon with tuscani badges. I stopped at a light with the guy and ask what he has on it, he says cold air intake and full exhaust. Right after he tells me what he has he takes off, i go WOT at 5mph with no boost at all. catch up to him at around 80 then let off. I have it all on video i just dont know how to post it.

    I think the Tucsani is just the name for the Tiburon in Europe or something. They're just stickers that say "tucscani", IIRC. It's still a Hyundai.

    I am really suprised it took you that long to catch up to it. Especially in an STi.

    Yeah, but this one had "Tuscani" stickers. That'll add 50 hp or so, not to mention the fear factor that it instill into its adversaries.

    i met a local tib driver that never heard of an sti.
    just thought it was a big wing 227 hp wrx.
    he told me 300hp wasn't stock

    nonetheless i complemented him on his kitted car and asked him about his plans... then it got funnay!

    i gotta t3/t4 turbo coming that'll put it at about 500-550hp!

    He's a lie, there is no turbo made for the tibby yet so tell him to recheck his sources
