Hyundai veloster

I think that's what it was. I had my dads 05 6.0l super cab. I wasn't paying Attention at a light and the hyundia pinned it. He got the jump until it got rolling. As soon as I started pulling away he backed right off! I'm not one for racing but I couldn't pass this up. Truck was bone stock. Got the egr delete and scr tuner now. Old man is real happy even with the tow tune. Pissed that it pulls harder and lays better rubber than his 13 gt thou!

the GT needs a driver mod if a tune-only 6.0 will outrun it

I guess sarcasm doesn't come over the Internet too well. Just surprised how hard the 6.0 pulls

I own a veloster, and am not surprised you could beat it. They look sporty, but only have 136 HP...

Ok so it wasn't a great kill. But I don't drive the truck very much. Was still fun.

What about the turbo velosters? My mom bought a new 13 sonata with the 2.0L turbo I-4 and that thing flat moves. It's rated at 274hp. The naturally aspirated 2.4L I-4 is rated at 198hp.
