I hate the fact our color is too close to black sometimes. But in the sun it shows its true beauty.

If I had to choose all over again I would choose the 86 10 times in a row. I never understood needing 300+ horsepower if all one does is drive 99% of the time on public roads. If I was into racing I...

I used to hate that I live about 40 minutes from work. But that's when I owned a G35 and a Civic LX. Now I appreciate the distance everyday for the very reasons you mentioned.

Do you use the paddles 95% of the time? I just can't seem to understand what is so great about the manual vs the auto? The only issue I have with mines is I wish I had a 4.88 or 5.29 FD so I could...

In the auto with a 4.1 fd after you redline 1st gear you will drop to 4500rpms for 2nd. But in the video I posted earlier the 4.88 fd equiped automatic drops the rpms to 5200 rpms instead for 2nd...

Our torque band is flat once you past the torque dip in which the shorter FD keeps the revs higher from 2nd gear all the way up. Also a Header and tune would essentially make our torque band become...

So you have owned both a manual with 4.1 and a Auto with 4.67? And you prefer the acceleration more because of the switch. This is all I need to hear.:party0030:

I wonder if there is a method to figuring out how a 19% reduction fd ends up giving a 12.5% gain in acceleration. I wonder what a 5.29(29% reduction) would knock off.

I couldn't care less about 300+hp on a 2800 lb RWD coupe. The fastest street car I've driven was a automatic 335i which makes 265whp/300wtq in a 3550 lb behemoth of a body and I was blown away by the...

Wow, so it feels about as torque-y as a 350Z in FEEL right? I remember when I first drove a Z the torque won me over in a big way more than the car overall.

I realize that sometimes our cars feel kinda lazy to move around 2800 rpms and the engine feels kind of breathless(torqueless). How does the 4.67 combat that?

Low-Mid range power FEELS better for a daily driver. That's why turbo's are loved and V8 engines. So they went with a powerband that most people liked.
