DD and only car, no top-down action at the moment.

I daily a fr-s on the side (GF's vehicle). It's not 'fast', but its quick. If you're shifting above 4-5K you'll get to your desired speed in no time

The 4k tq dip is my only complaint. 6-speed is amazeballs

It's quick enough around town. But you've really got to keep the revs up to get it moving, and then it's quite fun. The gears are nice tight, so once you get it wound up it stays there.

Mine has an MXP cat-back, Ground Control coilovers, 18x9.5 RPF1s with 255/35 DZII and I'm running the Open Flash Tablet with an E85 tune.

The only other things I want to do are an intake, header, oil cooler.

E85 + UEL basically eliminates it. And adds about 30whp up top.

Sounds nice for a DD
E85 is always ******* awasome ,if you have Gas Stations in your Neighborhood wich offer it....

"E85 + UEL basically eliminates it. And adds about 30whp up top"
Nice Numbers for a 2.0l (200 stock hp) N/A Boxer Engine

In Germany there aren't that many e85 Stations at the Moment ,mostly only in bigger Citys but i hope that change in the next Years
The nearest Station for me is 20min away but i will get a tank at home for the Miata

I wish I had E85 to throw in the Burzzz. I love my BRZ but it is a bit slow for DD duty. Hit a nice windy road and keep the rev's up and it's GREAT.

besides keeping miles off of the subi as i have a 65 miles round trip each day, the primary reason for the SS is:


i also have an 86 s10 v8 swap project, and of course the miata, but those arnt dailies.

I'm asking why in the world that's called an SS. I did like your answer for the other potential question, though.
