Hello all, I know I should probably be posting in the new members area, but I figured since my questions are mostly about performance, I should post here. I don't own a GC yet, but I drove a 2013 2.0 today, and was very impressed. The car is sexy as none other, and is a fairly strong runner. I'm coming from an IS350, which is a fast car, I can attest to the 13.5 stock quarter mile claim. The gearing is what enables them to do such a quick time stock for what they are. Be that as it may, they have very little in the form of aftermarket options.
1. I want a car that can run a mid to high 12 (I'd be happy with a 12.8 or so), so I would like to know what would get me there, and how much would it cost? I know that isn't exactly easy with these cars, but humor me.
2. Would going with a 2012 model or earlier be an easier route? (3.8 or 2.0, it doesn't matter)
3. If using the turbo, would there be a loud BOV sound with the power level I want?
4. Will the dealerships be able to detect the tune?
Thank you in advance, for all the answers. Also, anyone on this forum live near me? I live in a small town East of Dallas, Tx.

I think it would be easier with a pre face lift 2010-2012 car. Tuning is fairly accessible and aftermarket turbo options are plentiful.

Get a 1st gen 2.0T, 3.8 requires more than bolt ons for the power you seek.

Thanks for the help. I'll look at some of the threads on tuning the 2.0's to 300-325whp. In hindsight, I see that most of the questions could have been gleamed from other threads, my apologies, I realize how annoying redundancy is.

They can detect the tune, and void your warranty. So It's best to get an extra ecu if you get a canned tune. So you can swap from your oem to tuned when going to the dealership. If your tuning through a reflash module. Then you can just reflash it back to stock before you go to a dealer, and you are set.
