Nice, a hypermiler, you must save a bunch of money on gas.

She can probably shame prius' in a beater Civic and get >50 mpg.

All of them. It's a car. Most aftermarket stuff is excrement compared to the dull but tried and functional OEM.

In fact I have NEVER seen a post from Norville that is helpful in any way shape or form.

If you are changing to LWCP to reduce the overall weight of the car, then carry on. (but if you still have a spare tire and interior, you are focusing on the wrong components)

example: The highest reported hp in NA application in this car has the fluidampr front pulley which is heavier than stock.

Also, my black FR-S has a Competition Clutch Stage 4 and it's absolute garbage. Never predictable and makes me hate driving the car. By contrast, my white BRZ has a 6-puck from ACT, and it's a joy to drive.

Lesson is: get a twin disk.

This is so true... I won't even joke around. If he get perma banned, you know what happened.

Anyways, back ON-topic.
Mods to avoid is up to the owner. Not all mods gonna fit everyone's need. Some parts works for one person's setup, but might not & fuck it up for other person's setup.

Mod to avoid...Basically just "stay away from replica and low quality stuff" that related to safety, like wheel, suspension, etc. Other than that, save money to buy quality stuff and take your time modding the car if you dont have much fund.
