Re: Who drives cars?
Stock horsepower is 130, which is what Corollas are typically based around. With the supercharger, it puts in another 40 horsepower. That also alters what gas I can use, which is high octane gasoline. New spark plugs and a colder thermostat was also part of the package to maintain the performance of the supercharger. The dealer has yet to market any high flow fuel pumps, fuel rail, and injectors yet, probably because it will void vehicle emissions.
Unfortunately, it is an automatic. They do have manual transmissions but since I do a lot of driving, I find it annoying to constantly shift. I can always use the low gears to race if I ever feel like it. I also have other performance parts added on afterwards to generate more hp. Never got an acutal dyno, but with the new aqua mist injection, pulleys, CAI, a/f controller, I should be nearing 200 whp.
