Or better yet, swap the STi body onto the 5.0.

Yeah, the Termi is bad. My uncle used to have one as his HPDE car. Smaller pulley, cat-back and tune and it was putting down 455whp. He went through a few different suspension setups with it over the years, BAER BBKs front and rear and 285 R-Comps all the way around.

It was FAST. I think the only thing he really had to do to make it reliable for track work was a Diff cooler that he would turn on the pump once it got to a certain temp.

That being said, if it's mainly a DD I'll take the modern creature comforts of the S550.

I remember they came out when I was a wee lad and I was foaming at the mouth for one. That supercharger whine

Around my area they're still going for high 10s / low 20s for an average example, not flawless cars but not busted *** whips either. I really might have to pick one up maybe after I graduate

Also easier for me to get an S550 because I can easily finance it huehuehue
I'm waiting for one to get traded in at my work so I can take it for a long drive and make sure I want it. Only ecoboost ones have been showing up.

How hard can it be to test drive a Coyote car if you work there?

I could walk into any of the local dealerships at lunch and drive one.

But I wouldn't need to. I owned a '13 GT Track Pack car.....the added power and IRS of the S550. SOLD.

My BRZ is about $35 more per month than my '13 Mustang GT was. 200hp vs 420hp. Ugh.

It's because you just can't mow down a crowd of meet spectators in a brz with the same efficiency as a mustang

Which is why the Mustang should cost more.
