So, has anyone put a Duramax in an FR-S or BRZ yet? It would totally fix the torque dip issue.

Please do try to bear the cringeworthy wannabe Morgan Freeman narrating.

The Duramax Camaro and Cummins Charger take to the streets. - YouTube

A duramax is like 11 grand to replace doubt its worth it (I know I work at a GMC dealer lol)

EDIT: @Tcoat and others, interestingly enough, we have a lot of research (and I did some of my own to recreate it in a more recent setting) that shows that the more alternatives and info/opinions you seek out in a given purchase, the less sure of you will be of your choice. There is a point, of course, because if you make a decision without some info on how it works, you can't use it, but after that....you're just hurting yourself.

But consider the price in weight to swap to a different motor to make hat power.

Exactly! It is something I battle all the freakin' time in the health and safety field. You have no idea how hard I laughed when those words popped up on my screen since this is the last place I ever would of expected to see them written even though this place is rife with it.
