Looks like you're out of luck on this one... good luck with your frozen engine buddy.

The bot must not be programmed to work in Canada, since the engine freezing situation would be debunked immediately.

Unless of course Canada gets special anti-freezing engines that the US dont get.

Nice that the OP likes his car so much. And this is a great car to leave alone, except for those tires, kill those stock primacys as fast as you can.

I felt similar and burned through several all seasons and summer tires before I bought a supercharger. I like the supercharged version of this car better. Same car, more fun. Same linear response with the supercharger, same sub 4500 tame manners, and then that 4500+ range when the cam timing kicks in and it turns into a real hoot as those giant intake ports find their happy place. Just more oomph all around. And full disclosure, mine is the HKS kit that used to come with the tune tablet for pump gas or e85 with fuel injector and pump upgrade. I have the gas tune and no upgrades beyond an CSG spec MXP exhaust.

This car would be better served stock with smaller intake ports to balance the low end torque a little more. For example. the WRX round port cars hit max torque in the 3000 rpm range. I think the dip starts there with the FA20. But FA20s are made to rev, big intake ports do best at the top end, it's no secret, just a low end versus top end trade off.

The larger displacement of the newer models will increase the airflow rate across the whole rpm range improving on the original 2.0 as well, likely making them come on a little sooner unless they hold them back with the cam timing. Turn that high flow timing on too soon and it'll just cause issues.
