Not significantly enough by themselves to notice a difference. Spend the same $1500 on a Civic VX or CRX HF and hypermile that thing instead of dailying the BRZ if you really want great mileage ;)

Subaru does not make the best engines compared to their Japanese brethren, let's be honest with ourselves. They're pretty hit-or-miss. If I had a nickel for every shortblock I saw replaced during my...
