I haven't tried steel wool myself.

The 2015 BRZ Series.Blue did come with STI wheels, but they were the same size...

I can vouch for this exhaust...probably the tamest/quietest single exit system out there. Very mature and clean sound, OEM+ like. Would be a good candidate to pair with a catless header.

The weight difference between the systems isn't that big, only a 4.6lb difference (28.4 lbs for Single V2, 33 lbs for Spec-L2).

In this case, they are the same part. I have the TRD engine mounts and transmission mount and they have "Subaru" stamped on them, just like the STI pieces.

Thanks! My summers are 16" too :) 16x8, +25 to be exact, also wrapped in 225/50/16. Love the old school meaty tire look; don't think I'll be ever going back to 17's.

I would definitely pass. That's a 2-inch diameter between the two sizes, which is a huge variance. Stock tire has a 24.7" diameter, and 225/60/16 has about a 26.6" diameter.

Interestingly, the 996 coming up behind me is LS swapped. Had a chat with him and turns out it's a pretty common swap, cheaper than rebuilding the original engine when the IMS bearing goes.
