Cables will always feel more vague compared with direct mechanical linkage. As for which is normal - both - though more cars probably use cables these days.

As long as it stays AWD for the Subaru version, I'll be happy. Increase in hp to 208 is ok. I was hoping for 210-212hp. 208hp is a little shy, but I will just up the boost level a bit to get it to...

Wait, can I use my car in a soap box derby? Sure it would be pretty slow off the line but as I gain speed I can probably outcorner the other cars. :)

I'd go with 225/45 - that's what I did on my 17x7.75 wheels. Fit is great, and the MPSS have so much grip I don't need anything wider. Plus a 225 tire is lighter than a 245 one. :)

Stock tires for the twins are 215/45/17, so going to a 235/45/17 setup without changing alignment is asking for bad tire wear. Its both a taller and wider tire.
