The GR Yaris seems to be a truly impressive car with a great engine. I donít think it is the right character for an 86/BRZ, but it seems awesome for a small hot hatch.

I was asking for FA24 with 3.9 and 4.3... which you kindly provided.

All-New 2022 Subaru BRZ Makes Global Debut

I assumed carryover of the 2020 ratios. Gear ratios havenít been confirmed. I hope they donít make the gearing taller. These are sports cars, dammit!

All-New 2022 Subaru BRZ Makes Global Debut

At 3700RPM, the engine is making 184lb-ft of torque. 184lb-ft through first gear is bumped to 668lb-ft through the 3.63 first gear. Through the 4.44 final drive, that gets bumped to 2,965lb-ft.

Well, seeing it in video has helped. The look is a lot more coherent than these leaked pics. 228hp and 175lb-ft was about what I expected. Not bad.
