It was either go single turbo or LS Swap. A good single turbo setup would cost a little less than the LS swap so I decided to go with the LS Swap. Car is a blast to drive. I still browse the classified here to see if any good deals pop up on an FRS/BRZ, maybe one day I'll end up getting one and swapping that too lol!

I feel you. My parent's never made me eat vegetables and i'm the same height. Now (as a 34yr old) I tease them about it. "You're LUCKY i didn't eat those carrots... I'd have been too big and you'd have had to buy a HUGE house to fit me inside all those years"

The "can't" car list is too big for people that are tall but not "THAT" tall.

Mr Mrs has a standard '96 RX7 and it keeps up with my Sprintex/Innovate charged '86 pushing around 290bhp here in the UK

Luckily I'm having a full engine build and a 335 charger installed, but she's got plans to port the RX7, V mount, bigger turbo's etc so should be a good match
