Hi Russell,

Here's the info from Subaru's press release. Sounds like good stuff !

Performance Package
The 2017 BRZ now offers the Performance Package for drivers who demand even more from a sports car. The Performance Package is available on the Limited model with the manual transmission and includes Brembo® calipers and larger rotors on both front and rear brakes. This advanced braking system gives BRZ a significant boost in stopping power, fade resistance, and pedal feel. SACHS® Performance shock absorbers are added to all four corners for improved ride and corning stability. Also included in the package are unique 17-in x 7.5-in black aluminum alloy wheels.

I will be that guy and say that additional 5 hp isn't that impressive but I am really more interested in how/if they resolved the mid rpm range torque dip. When I had the BRZ it really felt like the car ran out of steam briefly until it came back but then I had to rev it past 5k all the time.

The final drive ratio change hopefully puts the car on par with ND miata performance (i.e high 5s to 60) and with the torque dip gone that would make the car more enjoyable.

I also like that Brembo is offered on all four corners vs just the fronts for Miata but will have to see the pricing on that.

I like the performance pack. Much more track worthy out of the box, and may have made me second guess my STI if it were out then.

Great additions. A small turbo would still make the car that feel good fun.

While 5hp is negligible by itself, the addition of shorter gearing and a better mid-range will make a noticeable difference, I bet.

Just because its only a 5hp increase doesn't mean its only at peak. It could be 5hp almost throughout the power band. Which the torque dip gone. It should be pretty fun to fun to drive around.
