Difference between the 2.4, turbo, and supercharged SS...

Aside from listening,
are there any other obvious tell signs to look for so that I'll know wut I'm up against when I run into one on the streets?
I can take the 2.4,
but the ss/sc is a touch out of reach...
The ss/tc isn't even a funny match up...

2.4 doesnt have the lip kit that the tc and sc have. 17" rims on the 2.4.

there are a few differences between the tc and sc. the rims are dead give away. the front grill is diamond on the tc, opposed to the slats of the sc.

sc:


tc:


2.4:

the TC and SC usually have an emblem on the trunk saying "supercharged" or "turbocharged", get them to rev at you too, if you hear a whistle or a whine don’t bother

Not unless you really look for it. From afar it looks good IMO.

Ahhh...
Bad ass...
Thanks man...
That actually helps alot...
I think most of the ones I see runnin around here are the 2.4 SS...
I raced wut I think was the ss/sc back a few months ago...
He didn't pull enough lengths on me for him to be a tc,
and I didn't hold my launch lead so it most likely wasn't a 2.4...
But thanks again guys...

if you ever get the chance to see a sc or tc next to a 2.4, there seems to be a huge difference. I think it's the lip kit that really makes the difference.
