The performance pack also adds 20lbs to the Limited, seems like a lot for a BBK and 0.5" on each wheel.

Funny IIRC there is a Brembo Brakes ad in Grassroot Motorsports magazine and the rating chart only lists the OEM Brembos barely for light duty track work, more dedicated for street use. Then again they are trying to sell people heavier duty brakes.

It's basically the standard grade Brembos that come with an older Porsche isn't it (4 pot/2 pot fixed caliper)? The WRX STI world seems to think their Brembos need better pads and rotors to stop probably in very wet / cold conditions.

Since I have WRX STI brembos on my BRZ I have to admit that more aggressive pads and lightweight 2 piece rotors would make more of a difference. The setup also noticeably shifts brake bias forward. Serious track guys seem to run the stock calipers on the rear to keep the bias down.

Not really. A 4.3 final drive versus a 4.1 only bumps the RPM by 5%. So if you are at 3000RPM at highway speed, you will be 3150RPM at highway speeds.

Excuse my lack of knowledge but...does the changed final drive mean it just affects the last gear while the rest stays the same? Not really sure how final drive works.

Final drive is the ratio in the differential. It affects all gears.

The final gear ratio affect all 6 speed. It's the gear in the diferential, so it will affect all the gears by the same percentage.

Why would I need to lie though? What am I gaining from lying? A member in a local group in Atlanta(86 ATL) let me and another 86 member drive his car because we wanted to go pure N/A bolt ons + e85 and make 35-40whp. A guy name Adam got a Tomei EL from my buddy and he got it tuned from a shop in ATL named DBW Motorsport. The car just didn't impress us and I even suggested we turn off the A/C to see if the car would perform better. All I'm saying is if you can feel 10hp to the crank then you have amazing feel for small power. It's funny how you are getting angry over some stuff I'm clearly not lying about.

Final Drive relates to how many times the drive shaft needs to rotate to spin the wheels.

See this video at the 1:45 min mark to get a fairly good understanding of exactly what I mean: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgGgH0j0KQE

True, but it's already yelling at 80. Yellingx1.05=screaming

Serious track guys understand importance of brakes and don't do brake swap from different car for bling/branding purpose only.
