The wife likes the look. Going to try a Polestar 2, but this looks equally good and Hyundai range is good, so could well be one of those that replaces the family wagon.

If the QV is anywhere like here, they hold value really well as are quite uncommon. A half decent one here is no less than in the low £40k, so I would expect in dollars to be over the $50k budget...

Which is a shame. Watched a quick video of it on Fully Charged and they said that the Koreans are the only ones currently up there with Tesla on Battery/Range.

TBH that's one of the most common circuits used here for journos no matter what due to, I'm guessing, cost, noise (many of our circuits are noise limited) and availability. Weather here at the moment...

Ah, here it's available in PHEV and EV. Still it's using a ICE base chassis so I expect it to be somewhat compromised. I quite like the Polestar actually, if they did one similar size to a V60 I'd be...

Neither of the standard e-Tron models appealed, as you said, due to cost and being essentially ICE chassis converted, which loses out on one of the benefits of losing an engine. Not sure we get the...

Many points to consider here:
1. It's richer so will be safer and won't cost you any real power.
2. Do you trust the AFR output? Have you verified it?
3. Wayno is correct that the 2 do not need to...

TBH, probably easier to just not install the throttle body. The MAF scaling shouldn't be much different, but your throttle mapping will be well out.

Just to note that this compressor won't only be used for the BRZ/86 so the dipstick setup won't be simply for the FA20 and that the angle on the engine won't be the same for all uses.

Only about 5 Bar in it, probably not that far outside of tolerance on sensors between the 2. Both give you a good indication of the pressure, TBH both are in the ballpark of the pressures I'd expect.
