lol. Not that stupid. The change is not so drastic, maybe is a confirmation bias stuff instead of an issue. No real data to backup what I am saying.

I went from HKS drop in to the Takeda CAI with a tune, the car does feel like it wants to rev.

Maybe a tune is the next step...I was thinking in OFT as a starter, but also like flex fuel solutions. Still not sure.

Would be awesome if you could post a review of this setup after a while. Initially I wanted exactly the same setup for my car but I got Tein Flex A instead.

Looks so good in there!!

I have the same wheel; can't say enough positive things about it.

Bilstein B6 + tS springs mini review

I'm coming from a brand new 2019 BRZ Performance Pack with only 14,000km and compared to the stock Sachs dampers setup, the Bilsteins+tS springs combo has a similar firm ride. The ride comfort isn't any worse but the body control and damping is greatly improved. During large weight transfers like a slalom the chassis no longer bounces around and it stays flatter and more composed. Great OE+ setup. I have the draw stiffeners and flexible V-bars as well to complete the tS package.

I never liked the Sachs dampers with stock spring setup. It was too unstable because the rear would not grip very well. This did not give me any confidence during fast sweepers or accelerating out of a sharp turn.
