I just learned that my girlfriends cousin has an Accent and told her that it was turbocharged. He also told her that it could beat my Tib. I think it's a 2000 Accent and even if it were turboed, I doubt he could afford internal modifications to make it a LARGE turbo. There's a good 3 second gap in the 0-60 times for the stock Tib and Accent, so would it be possible for him to beat my stock Tib? How fast might this turbo accent be?

I don't think it's a 1.6 DOHC.

I've beaten several SOHC Accents by 2 or 3 car lengths in my Accent GT (0-60) and my new Tib is a hell of a lot faster.

Anyways, I was just thinking it would be very close and hoping that with a few mods, I would win. He just talked a lot of crap to my girlfriend and I don't want to get wasted if we happened to race.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

I had a 96 Accent GT (hence the GT with the ricey R in my name :dead: long time ago). At the time of this post, I had just sold it. All I knew about the new 1.6's at the time was that they had the same hp as my GT but weighed more.
