I been stalking since the FT86 concept just the forum pretty late because I thought it was so good I didn't think it would even happen. Right now i'm in college with NO DEBT so far and if I do I can pay relatively short amount of time because it wouldn't be alot in comparison to many. So once I graduate I'll buy. Right now i'm just planning what mods for future endeavors.

Hoping for a better/bigger engine (2.4-2.5L) that uses regular gas and minimizes or eliminates the torque dip.
At ~$.20/L more for Premium 94, a 50L fillup is $10 more.

So hoping for a better engine for a FRS/BRZ or a Mazda CX-5 Diesel, which ever comes first.
The Legacy 2.5L SOHC makes 170HP @ 5600 RPM and 170 lb-ft @4000 RPM, should not be hard.

Regular gas means less performance, and an engine designed around regular gas will consume slightly more gas. It sorta balances out.

Why do you mention the Legacy 2.5L? It has less power, probably uses more fuel, and is taxed higher in most countries that do displacement tax.

Despite the fact that I registered in 2011 I've been lurking since late 2009/early 2010.

As far as where I stand... Red FR-S next year hopefully. I am currently studying @ UC Berkeley so I don't need a car (selling my tC for that very reason). As long as I get into Stanford Law, I will 'justify' getting myself a FR-S - 1) I will need it to commute back home 1s/2s a month and 2) I will be broke as hell anyways so what's another 25-30k

I put my money where my mouth is, purchase date is 5/31/2012.

Car is great but slow, but that is the point right? Can dump money into anything and make it fast. I won't be so bold with the aftermarket though, I'll wait a bit, probably 2 years before I make my modification decisions. By then I'm sure we will see the reliability and gains of FI aftermarket and I can pay big but pay once.

The 2.5L is a common engine size for Subaru. The 2.5L has less Hp 170 vs 200 but more Torque 170 vs 151 . The Legacy 2.5L is a mild SOHC engine, it would not be hard to extract more power and torque from the 2.5L engine.
