Default What can I do to improve it??

I have a 2008 Scion tC, and its automatic transmission. I know things like the TRD Supercharger are only available for manual transmission, but i was wondering if you guys had any info as far as what i CAN do to the car to improve performance. I'm not sure if the cold air intakes are available for automatics, and if not, it would be greatly appreciated if you guys could tell me what i CAN do because i want a lttle more power for my tC!!!

is this your first time driving? automatic trannys and manual trannys have nothing to do with intakes. there are so many things to hook up a tC with its just another civic wanabe. if u want a faster car, you shouldnt have went with a tC. but now that u have one, turbo and nos that thing. thats all the power you'll need

We just installed a supercharger on a automatic TC last week.















Who told you that you could only put it on a stick is crazy.















There are many things you can do, TRD makes cold air intake, cat back exhaust and yes the Supercharger.

First things first, to get petter performance, get a stick shift, it will make all the difference in the world, and if you drive it right, you'll get much better fuel economy. THEN look into superchargers and things like that, you'll have a much better performing car.

just to clear...u can get a supercharge and even turbocharger in auto tranny.















and yes Cold air intakes are available for auto tranny...and i like the Injen Technology's CAI which get u about 5-7hp increase















You can install an Catback exhaust or an axleback...but go with catback it will give u more hp...go to ptuning.com....they got turbo exhaust which increases about 20hp.(what thier site says)















and also get headers.....by megan racing again they will increases about 5-10hp















and make sure u get some thing for handling like sturp bar or suspension...or something bec. power is nothing with handling.















just research on www.scionlife.com u will find tons of info on modding ur car.































i hope this helps :O
