Video BIG TURBO Pontiac Vibe is the Ultimate Tuner Troll

Video ✅ I’m always on the hunt for the next WEIRD tuner car of the world. While up in Michigan filming with ZZPerformance, I learned of a big turbocharged Pontiac Vibe in town and I HAD to see it. With its shared Toyota Matrix platform and 2ZZ engine I was curious how this was all going to pan out- let me tell you it was actually surprising. It has 8600RPM character that is unlike anything I’ve driven in the past ten years. For only about 300HP – it feels VERY fast in a tiny car like this. So what’s a turbo Pontiac Vibe like? Let’s talk about it! ✅ BIG TURBO Pontiac Vibe is the Ultimate Tuner Troll

2:06
could you imagine waking up as a car
2:08
Enthusiast and saying yeah
2:10
I drive a single turbo Pontiac Vibe said
2:13
no one ever this here is a Pontiac Vibe
2:18
also a Toyota Matrix so basically
2:21
Pontiac and Toyota made a deal to share
2:23
a car together and this one uses
2:25
Toyota’s 2zz engine which you can also
2:28
find in some lotuses in other cars so as
2:32
a platform actually surprised more
2:34
people didn’t mess with this but today
2:36
could be more excited the Pontiac Vibe
2:38
was made for actually a pretty long time
2:40
and I just remember one of my neighbors
2:43
in college had a Pontiac Vibe and I
2:46
remember him driving away one time and I
2:49
said oh it’s one of those Pontiac
2:51
hatchbacks I was like that’s kind of
2:54
cool you just got a used car for cheap
2:55
or whatever I was wrong it was a 2010
2:59
model a year I literally thought that
3:02
this car had aged quite a bit by 2010.
3:06
when you see it like this I don’t know
3:09
how to feel they took this and put a
3:12
single turbo on it and this makes about
3:15
250 wheel horsepower it’s on mostly a
3:18
Dyno tune so it’s kind of in this weird
3:21
spot where it loves all Throttle or no
3:24
throttle it’s on an AM piggyback system
3:27
to make this work I had no idea that the
3:30
Pontiac Vibe was like an actual platform
3:32
you could mess with but here I am so
3:35
let’s talk about what’s on this car it
3:37
actually has BC racing coilovers that
3:40
used a whole bunch of different parts to
3:42
make this happen so in order to make the
3:44
suspension happen it used parts from a
3:46
whole bunch of different Toyotas you
3:48
combine those parts and then you can
3:50
make it work on the Pontiac 5. along
3:53
with that we have a nice Royal
3:54
steering wheel there’s actually less
3:56
than I think 20 something of these
3:59
steering wheels it’s the grid life
4:00
Edition grip oil steering wheel because
4:02
Grid live is you know one of the coolest
4:04
car events freaking ever so it’s kind of
4:06
neat to see their steering wheel in here
4:08
there’s actually won an award at
4:09
gridlifer being one of the raddest
4:11
builds there and I think that’s also
4:13
really cool that they were able to kind
4:15
of Branch out their opinions find this
4:17
and go you did what with a Pontiac Vibe
4:20
so this actually uses a turbo kit from
4:22
turbokits.com
4:24
it uses a Garrett single turbocharger
4:27
and it runs eight pounds of boost now
4:30
believe it or not the 2zz engine can rev
4:33
to 8600 RPM
4:40
um
4:44
8600 so in this little hatchback you can
4:48
rev all the way to there with a single
4:49
turbo and the owner of this car
4:51
basically said you know I wasn’t trying
4:54
to make this thing super fast I just
4:56
wanted it to sound cool and be a show
4:58
car this car actually started its life
5:01
as his first car he’s had this car for
5:04
14 years and he’s changed a whole bunch
5:07
of things to it over the years the first
5:09
thing he did was actually make this an
5:11
audio car so yo big subwoofers in the
5:14
back there’s actually kind of some
5:16
evidence of that there’s insulation in
5:18
the trunk and a whole bunch of other
5:19
stuff so you can see kind of signs of
5:21
its previous life it’s also got a GSP
5:24
carbon fiber hood the Garrett turbo is a
5:27
gt2860 RS it’s got the GM OEM ground
5:31
effects body kit which is super rare and
5:34
you might notice it’s actually color
5:35
matched as well a lot of times the vibe
5:38
used kind of like this weird hard
5:40
plastic exterior that didn’t look very
5:42
nice said this cleans it up a lot I like
5:45
the ground effects kit it’s also got Mr
5:48
Billet grills f1r wheels that are 18 by
5:51
tens and also a custom made Wing so it
5:54
has this nice ducktail on the top
5:56
really nice it’s also got a pie cut
5:58
custom exhaust so that’s why you hear
6:01
that thing roaring in the background
6:05
that’s amazing
6:07
also got an MWR short throw shifter
6:10
because this is a six-speed manual
6:13
transmission I knew quite a few people
6:15
about 10 years ago who had Toyota
6:18
matrixes and they swore by them they
6:21
loved them and I can never figure out
6:22
why now that I learned that it could rev
6:25
the 8600 RPM that’s starting to make way
6:28
more sense this is the 2003 Vibe GT but
6:31
by the end of the vibe’s Life pontiac’s
6:34
Light was added in as well Pontiac was
6:37
going down the tube same with Saturn at
6:39
the same exact time
6:43
[Music]
6:48
thank you
6:50
[Music]
6:57
what yes
7:00
yes please wow
7:03
that is so rowdy I really like your vibe
7:26
foreign
7:27
comes up to you and they’re like I like
7:30
really like your Vibe Good Vibes only
7:32
this thing is so much faster so earlier
7:36
when I did my first pulls the boater I
7:38
guess hadn’t really kicked in yet hadn’t
7:41
really warmed up yet
7:45
what it is so much faster now than it
7:48
was earlier the way this motor kicks in
7:51
with its vbt like it is so wild because
7:55
you know Honda’s Honda tech we all know
7:58
it the moment you hit that variable
8:00
valve timing boost just ramps in
8:08
[Music]
8:14
like you could probably see in my face
8:17
like I don’t even know what to think as
8:20
soon as it gets into power it just comes
8:23
alive
8:24
so so violently
8:35
like I am so blown away of how different
8:38
this feels to any four-cylinder I’ve
8:41
ever driven boosted or not boosted and
8:44
what’s really cool about it is that it
8:46
sounds mean it doesn’t sound like some
8:48
Screaming beehive you know what I mean
8:58
[Music]
8:59
foreign
9:08
[Music]
9:20
I thought it was gonna be like yeah
9:22
eight pounds of boots it’s just gonna
9:24
sound cool thank you I think Fox feels
9:27
really good too it’s one of those things
9:29
where I thought it’d be this super
9:31
floaty gross gearbox no gearbox feels
9:34
great even without a limited slip
9:36
differential his Wheel and Tire set up
9:38
in the way the suspension is it’s
9:41
controllable I can control it the whole
9:43
time I’ve driven some really fast
9:45
front-wheel drive cars with limited
9:47
slips and they have way more torques
9:50
here than this does and
9:53
foreign
9:59
[Applause]
10:09
never in my life was
10:16
that I’ve never driven like this this
10:18
motor feels like it has two separate
10:21
personalities it feels like it’s a nice
10:24
Cruiser under 5000 RPM and then it turns
10:28
into an entirely different car past 6000
10:32
RPM it I said this already but I cannot
10:36
express the personality change once it
10:40
gets up top in the RPM I can’t I cannot
10:43
describe it it throws you back in the
10:46
seat out of
10:48
out of this is by far up there with some
10:51
of the fastest 250 horsepower wheeled
10:54
cars it just the way it ramps in the way
10:57
it comes in the shift feels great I
11:00
never missed a shift a single time even
11:03
when I was surprised by the motor if
11:04
you’re the short shifter helps with that
11:06
even with the torque steer it was
11:08
manageable it wasn’t like something
11:10
crazy like a big turbo Mazda Speed 3 or
11:12
something it just goes and that’s all
11:16
you can ask for really if you had to
11:18
build one of them a Toyota Matrix or a
11:20
Pontiac Vibe which one would you build
11:22
along with that it would be a massive
11:24
help if you click that like button it
11:27
really helps me in the YouTube algorithm
11:28
and at the same time thank you so much
11:31
for watching such a weird car and me
11:34
driving it I really appreciate your time
11:36
I really appreciate you enjoying this
11:39
video hopefully and on that note guys
11:41
