Yeah, STi hatch with 350+hp would be awesome.

Now that I'm divorced, the only car being the BRZ doesn't make as much sense (she had a '15 Mazda 6 Grand Touring), so we had a little fun car and big comfy car.

So something quick with a bit more room would be nice.

But I have car ADD so I'm not going to do anything anytime soon. At least until I'm back into a full-time gig vs a contract job.

Of course you'd also need a clutch and you'd be on borrowed time on the stock bottom end. The rods seem to be the weak spot north of ~325whp-ish. Although there are some lucky guys that have thousands of miles north of 400whp.



That's what they are claiming. They are saying it's 60% at ~300 crank HP for the BRZ, so 95% for 500 crank seems reasonable.
JR kit sounds promising. Yeah it's a rotrex, but if you could have a carb legal setup, that's a huge plus if you have to do emissions testing. I do here in TX, it sucks. And if you bought the carb legal kit, you could probably also buy the upgrade kit to make more power, and put it back to carb legal if needed for the test.

If I ever buy a SC kit for my Mercedes, I'd buy a carb legal kit and get the sticker, then if I need more power down the road buy upgrade parts for the kit.

There is really a ton of great options for this car, not just FI, but suspension, brakes, lightweight parts, exhaust.....even CFD tested aero parts.

I'm hoping the BRZ doesn't turn into a "1 and done" generation car.

TVS1320 will be lucky to hit 400 on a good motor. Probably good for 380 tops on a subaru motor. I'm glad the smartened up, there was talk of using the TVS900 and I thought that was laughable.

Turns out it was the left rear making ALL the noise. It was just HORRENDOUSLY loud and echoed through the whole car. I have no idea if I fucked it up during install or if it was defective somehow, but I had a shop replace it in case I was doing something wrong (and I needed the car fixed too quickly to do it myself). Now it's nice and quiet. Hopefully the other three don't **** the bed super early. I re-torqued the axle nuts on all of them before bringing it to the shop last week, so hopefully those are all good now, and I think the shop may have checked all four while they had it, as I told them I thought all four sucked.

I had a cheapo wheel bearing I bought fail on the outback after less than 1 year. Next time I bought the high end bearing for it, fixed that problem ever since (about 2 years now). Funny enough, left rear on mine too! There was actually a recall on my car for this.

I hope you all know this thread gets shut down tomorrow.

And in its place there will be the Mercedes-Benz thread.

This is an unacceptable development.

Instead, might I recommend that you use your magical moderator powers to displace the MB commentary into its own thread?

One of the reasons I like those guys: they make good products, here in 'MURICUH, and continue to develop new products and such while still having competitive prices more or less. Them and Nameless Performance

Most others either outsource to china, or use china janky materials, or blatantly knock off altogether.
