Compression Ratio of the tC?

    Also whats the power to weight ratio?
    Car and Driver Magazine has most of the stats given, although I don-t see power to weight.http://www.caranddriver.com/article.asp?section_id=3&article_id=8288&page_number=4Pesky
    with a 9:6:1 you can boost it pretty easy but would the internals hold?
    2905lb/160hp = 18.15lb/1hp 5sp2970lb/160hp = 18.56lb/1hp auto
    to make the scion fast or maybe not fast but more agile we need to have in the car something like weight to power 10:1 Ratio at least which would mean that with the weight right now we would need like 290-300 whp and that wont make a fast car but it would be more agile.
    What do you call fast? A scion tC with 300hp would be fast if you could get it down. ie wheel hop. along the lines of a 350z. I hate to break this to everybody but this car is not the second coming of the supra. The hp ceiling on this car is going to be 300-350hp at the crank, unless serious alterations are made, such as a different head, because the FE in the engine code stands for fuel economy. That-s why the camry is such a popular car its fuel economic with good power, but there aren-t any camrys out there running 11-12s that I know of. If you want a serious high HP car then you might want to look elsewhere.
    i hate to break it to ya but any car can be fast if you know what and where to buy the parts for it. specially if you get sponsored. lol but put a turbo in it like a T304 or something slightly bigger. make a return fuel line if its not already equiped with it, rods and pistons with a longer stroke, sleeve whole engine, bore the intake manifold and head. and you can easyly make i 400-450 Whp with reliable power and a street car still.
    Yes...only problem with that (at least with us californians) Is CARB legalities and Emissions. It MAY pass the exhaust smog test, but it will fail the visual inspection because of its lack of cats. (turbos aren-t THAT polluting compared to the engine, which is already a clean fuel burner...) Not to mention if a cop tells us to pop the hood...we-re screwed... LETS GET SOME CERTIFICATION HERE!!!Btw, your -analogy- of FE being for FUel economy...what does GE mean? What about GTE, and dont- tell me -general economy- and -General turbo economy-....Btw theres a v6 camry running twin turbo and hitting 11-s in the 1/4 =)
    I-ve owned a car with an FE head for 7 years (MR2) and if you won-t RELIABLE power you went with a 3sgte swap, because that engine was meant to be boosted. If you take one of these engines and try to make over 300-350hp you will be replacing an engine soon, I-m not knocking the car, hell I bought one, just passing along the experience. Listen or don-t your choice. When I spoke of camrys in the 11-12s I was speaking of 4-s with an FE head and no juice. And speaking of making a tC in the 400-450 range I said without serious alterations such as:a T304 or something slightly bigger. make a return fuel line if its not already equiped with it, rods and pistons with a longer stroke, sleeve whole engine, bore the intake manifold and headYeah, all that you can make serious power, no small or cheap task.BTW click the link below to read what I mean about the FE and GE head differences and drawn your on conclusionshttp://www.toyotacelicaon...m/toyota_engine_codes.asp
    InLikeFlint is right. What-s limiting the performance out of the 2AZ-FE is the -F- economy head. A solution to it would be to swap the head with a -G- head. But apparently Toyota hasn-t made a 2AZ-GE. I tried to start a discussion on Scionlife.com to see if it was possible to swap in a 3S-GE/3S-GTE head onto a 2AZ-FE, but it got no where. If Toyota ever decides to make a 2AZ-GE, i-m pretty sure you could swap the heads without any issue.
    Something of a G head, 4ag from the old corolla may work with a few modifications. THere wre a few 4ag race-bred heads capable of high rpms and great power in the 10K + rpm. perhaps the 2 and 4 series woul be great if someone could fabricate it.

    The 4ag is a different family of engines, the head would not mount to the block correctly(The headgasket) Like Blaster master said if a 2az g series engines is made, the head would be interchangable with the block.
    Haha alright you win, i-ll just take the 3sgte and swap.

    Longer stroke!?!? You-re familiar with rod ratios correct?
