Nope, I missed it. Copy/paste mistake from other places I posted where I already had price entered in a separate field. Thanks for the catch, I've updated it with the price.

In terms of value per price point:

WRX > Ecoboost
Vette > 5.0
V6 > all (identical to EB performance for $5k less)

V6 = best bang-for-buck of all Mustangs

I'd be thrilled if the BRZ had a 270-300hp FA24 turbo but I doubt it will. I expect it to be NA for reasons of liability, weight, and so it doesn't encroach on STI sales. But mostly cost. It would...

Pressure is defined as force per unit area (lbs/in^2 or N/m^2). You're describing 2800 lbs of force to the ground, not pressure. Saying "pressure per square inch" is like saying (lbs/in^2)/in^2 or...
