That sucks dude, my 318 stock would have beaten a Corolla S. Please, brag about something worth while.

Doubt you'd beat an XRS. Corolla S is just a Corolla with trims and "sport" suspension.

Huh? I never said I'd beat an XRS with a stock 318, infact, never even saw one in my entire life.

Yeah but the boosted model isn't the same engine. That's the point I was trying to make. Just like the motor in the Volvo 850 GLE isn't the same motor in my 850 Turbo. They didn't just slap a turbo onto the 5 cyl. One has much higher compression and crappier internals, weaker block, etc.

It seems that economy car engines are boosted simply for bragging rights. You hardly ever see them run properly.

The Corolla was NOT racing. They don't race it's a proven fact.
People that own Corolla vehicles buy them for fuel economy.
Going to WOT will ruin their overall MPG.

I can't stand people who drive the older model corollas. It's like the type of people who buy them are naturally slow, they have no driving sense. The people who drive the newer models seem a bit better. I see a few spirited drivers once in a while.

lol, I honestly forgot that you had that AE86. I have seen those done properly with F/I, but none of the internals were stock. Boosting a stock econo box motor is a poor choice.

The ONLY reason (and I'm being really honest) that I don't like Jap cars is because they rust up and fall to peices after 6-8 years. Granted, they were designed to be replaced within that period of time, which is another thing I don't like, cars that are designed to be replaced. I seriously considered throwing all my money away to get an '94 NSX. But f*CK! $50-60K for a 12 year old Honda. Who knows how long the body will last. That's the main reason I opted for the cheaper, longer lasting Volvo. I love the NSX, even if it is a wannabe Ferrari.

Anyways, sorry to get off topic, back to the corollas!

I agree with you for the most part bry, however, there are some great jap cars that are F/I (supra, rx-7, SKYLINES, etc.) that are untouchable when it comes to turbo's.

And the econoboxes can be just as good!

I believe the nsx bodies were made out of aluminum if I'm not mistaken.
I have yet to see a rusted out nsx

Also alot of titanium parts used everywhere else

When I mean falling apart, it's not just the body. What about the sub-frames and chassis, that basically holds the entire car together. BTW, look at the milage of the NSX's on the auto trader, they are all around 50,000kms. They wouldn't have been driven long enough for the car to rust out. On the other hand, if I had an NSX, I would drive it all year round, why spend that much money on a car onyl to enjoy it 20% of the time you own it? But anyways, good to know that the body was all aluminum, didn't know that.
