yeah man I wouldn't mind a nice RWD summer car like an SC BRZ....but then I got into motorcycling last year and all thoughts of a summer car went out the window! Only need one summer vehicle and riding is way too fun hahah. Plus the STI does both all weather/daily driving and pulls nice too so I'm very satisfied :P

Different strokes, different folks. Pulls are cool but you really can't go 10/10 with an STi outside of the track without bring reckless. That's what makes me sad. I can't use my car to its full fun potential on the road. And thus I'm paying (in gas, insurance, and car payments) a car that I simply can't make the most out of. But a brz I can. My climate doesn't get snowy weather so I can run summer tires year round as well. And I can get the most out of it as well.

Heard you stopped by the dealership. Too bad I wasn't here to check it out. I coulda told you that a centrifugal supercharger is only going to enhance a stock power (lack of torque) curve. That's why most go roots, twin screw or turbo.

So, Diego, stop being a puss, go e85 and make some jam!

Ah. From the looks of it, twin screw would probably be the best fit for the brz considering gains & engine bay space.

What he said.

If you'd be happy at a lower power level, the torque gains and power curve from a good sized and efficient twin screw would be phenomenal. If you want to keep the 2.0, a turbo is awesome for big power. If you're nuts, a LSX build with a turbo would be full retard!

I vote full retard.

Meh. I would feel easier about higher power out of the FA20 then the EJ257.
