If I'm not mistaken, FIA R3 regulations allow 98 octane or E85. You couldn't bump the compression ratio without it. It's just not feasible to market a production car that requires e85 or 98 octane...

Yeah the rule for my state was you're not supposed to change lanes within 100 ft of an intersection.

OP if your state is similar, the other driver should automatically be at fault.

That said,...

That's a good point too. The FR-S is so gentle, I can try different lines and techniques, and still gather the car up when things go south. It'd be much easier to lose it with 400+ hp and loads of...

Last week, I saw a mustard yellow GT on the side of the road, parked next to a bunch of Lamborghinis and Ferraris. I barely even noticed the other cars lol.

Yeah I'm beginning to think the C5Z is the way to go if the car will be tracked regularly. Helps that the car is much cheaper to begin with, although the C6Z is definitely the looker of the two IMO.

The odd thing is, it appears based on a few independent dynos that "the other" catted UEL header seems to eliminate the torque dip completely. Wonder what the secret behind their design is.
