So..considering a yaris but performane is an issue.

So i just applied for a loan from toyota financial, id have been looking around for a cheap car, 15 or under, 4 cylinder engine, somthing nice looking. Im all about performance so that is a large factor in deciding my decision on a car. I was inspired with the yaris from these pics someone posted on another forum...





and i thought to myself, wow thats really hot looking, i wonder what i could do with the engine to have something nice like that and perform well on the road as well. Granted ive gotten mixed feelings from friends who say it looks like a booger or a jelly bean, but i need to get out of my 98 dodge neon asap lol.

So fellas, give me the scoop here, whats available for the 1.5L VVT-i engine here that comes with the yaris, im seeing alot of supercharger kits, intakes, exhaust kits, etc etc, not much on cams or custom intake manifolds tho or much of anything else. Im also not seeing much in the way of horsepower being layed down with the supercharger kits, whats the deal with that? Im gona be getting an auto tranny if anything, are there any shift kits available for it as well? Give me the skinny on the performance end ;)

That yaris is on coilovers, so you'd be dropping $900+ on suspension to get that look, then you gotta buy wheels.

The Blitz Supercharger has been recorded on the dyno at 125-130 whp. There's lots of choices for CAI, SRI, and exhaust. NST makes a set of pullies for the yaris. I don't think there is any intake manifold for sale yet. Someone was working on one, but I don't think its for sale yet.

A couple of people have turbo-ed the yaris and got 180+ whp. Or you could always go with an engine swap.

If you want the car to go fast in a straight line, you'll be putting down quite a bit of time and money. You can get the car to handle around a curve without much money, and have a fun little daily driver.

edit: and the guy who owns that yaris owns a subaru shop. (for the 100th time :P )

I believe the guy did that to his yaris cause he has a garage and he's a big fan of the subaru car..... I cant remember what it was called.... god durn it.

yeh im a big fan of it, the guys over at NN were raving about it so i figured id come over here and check into the yaris a little bit more, like i said, performance is a big issue with me, which was why i was opting for an ecotec powered car for a while now during my shopping.

^^ pretty much , if all you're after Hp's the yaris isn't for you . If you want something that looks cool , is differnt from the rest of the tuner cars , gets 35+ mpg's and will out handle most "sports cars" on the track with suspension modds/good driver then the yaris might be for you Imo.

performance? I'd say slap a sway bar on and some descent tires and the rest should be some skill...(Coilovers won't hurt either!)....anyway, You will be able to have tons of fun with a manual!

never done any autocrossing before, im more of a drag race kind of person, im looking at this mainly for a DD though, but like all my cars, it needs to have some kick to it, so standard things right off the bat, intake, headers, pulleys, id really love to have some big cams in it, any future plans for camshafts for this thing?

get a stick, buy the NST Short shift kit and have some fun. I personally could not have any fun in my yaris if it was an automatic. I kinda wish i bought an automatic sedan so I wouldn't have modded it.

lol ive always been an auto guy, i practically live in philly these days and driving a stick while trying to eat a damn sandwich and talk on the phone is impossible, like i said this is a DD not a race car, but like all would be engine tweekers, there has to be some go fast mods, even on a DD. So im trying to get a lay of the land here in terms of what this thing can do. Toyota financial may be the only ones who approve me for a loan in this tough economy, im permanently disabled so i dont have a job ATM. The chevy dealer told me to get lost when i went down to go for a cobalt so that route is looking closed pretty much. I also was denied for a Nissan versa as well due to my disability.

Saggio's car looks awesome, but that just has to rub like a mofo.
