No problem. Just remember that's just the general rule. There are certain EL headers that seem to do a good job eliminating the dip. P&L and JDL catted are two off the top of my head.

Yes the general consensus is that UEL headers do a better job of eliminating the torque dip than EL headers. Here is a dyno comparison (same dyno and tuner) of Tomei's UEL vs. EL header, for...

Yeah I used to own a 350z and agree, the seating position and visibility were poor. Very noticeable jumping between that and the FR-S, where the seating position and visibility are particularly good.

Hah you're a trooper! I wouldn't mind doing that commute in the FR-S either, but given that OP is coming from an Accord, he might want more refinement/space.

With such a long commute, I'd also make sure to test drive the new GTI and Mustang. You might find you like refinement and torque when traveling in straight lines for long distances.
