I believe the higher c.r. might be for emissions not so much for power. They have to run almost at knock conditions to minimize unburned hydrocarbons

I see more of these guys since the front end design (just like the back) is not all that unique.









I would say its just the joker taking a knife to the current BRZ and saying to it
"Lets put a smile on that face of yours....."

I can't wait until they work the bugs out of this one. More power was the #1 thing that this buggy needed. NA power, not FI power, please.

Still not thrilled about solving the DI problem by slapping PI on top of it. Are you guys at Subaru real Japanese engineers or a bunch of idiots?

As for the looks: If it's fun to drive, I can pretend that it's not ugly. (Note: I said the same thing about my first wife. . )

Don't pay any attention to me. I just hate direct injection engines . . .








. . . because they inevitably result in carbon build-up on the valves, and then you got a problem).

So what did you want to them to do? Give you a factory installed meth injection system? Adding port injection is the perfect solution.

I wonder if they replaced the spare with a fixaflat kit. If they did the weight probably went up closer to 70lbs

Um, but it works. And it was Toyota's solution (D4S) and a pretty elegant one. Why bag it if it works? They are giving you the benefits of DI without the downsides (carbon buildup). Sorry, I don't get the hate.

Front grill opinion...

I really donít get why people are so opinionated about the front grill... as shown it it similar to many other sports cars and seems fine to me.

Personally the only grills I spend time on studying are on highway patrol cars so I can spot them in my rear view mirror!

It seems incredible that we finally get functional vents (fake vents being a pet peeve of mine) and now some complain about the shape?

Remember: it could have come out looking like the new Supra!
