It is a turbo. The emblem on the passenger dash proves it. :P

Can't tell if that's actual carbon fiber or stickers... kinda looks like stickers. WTF is up with the tire pressure blinking?

Those would have to be stickers. I was wondering the same thing about the tire pressure.

We bought real carbon fiber for a project we were doing under the hood pretty time consuming. You may have carbon fiber on the hood, but it came that way it would be difficult, and very time consuming to lay CF on the hood for someone who nothing about it laying in large proportions.

well its actually just around the hood vents... so its a very small area... but it is real lol I can upload a pic :)

That would be cool if you could do a thread in the gallery. It's always awesome to see what other people have done with their Zuk. I like the way CF looks. It's very slick!!

i saw this one a few months ago...crazy that i seem to be the only one who has....slow zuk though the stock sx4 sport sedan 5spd was tested at 7.8 sec to 60 so not really that much of improvement...but this one is the awd version and prob has traction control also i dont think it was tuned much beyond adding the turbo and other bits

supposedly 220 whp but a full 1.5 seconds slower than an srt-4 neon which has a 2.4 turbo with aprox 230 at the wheels (over 260 at engine for the 2004+ w/standard lsd) note: srt-4 has the same size wheels and tires as the sport sx4 205/50-17 and it has a 5spd manual(which also has short first gear like our zuks mt's)...also my best friend has one i've driven it but prefer the zuk over it :D the clutch in the dodge sucks its too heavy and requires you to fully depress it to floor...the shifter is clunky too...

Also the wheels on the Zuk are 19's and it has a heavy steel roll cage in it as well as the big steel piece on the floor in the rear. That car was heavy with all the looks stuff and the carbon fiber on it did not really off set it any.

That means the TPMS system is malfunctioning. Mine does it too occasionally. Found the answer in teh manual! :D

Might not be a turbo, but that road looks familiar...on the way to Rincon maybe; and that music, I like it; anybody know who the group is?

No way that car is a turbo, every turbo SX4 is loud, even mine with the cats on it was just crazy loud. It is the open piping and turbo that just add to the already loud engine noise you get in the car.
