All I know is.. I drive an 04 STi with an FP 20g and I'm 21, I bought the car completely stock. I made it happen! And on my own, I work for it and it's the best thing I've ever done with money. But everyone that ends up with whatever car they may have and is interested in modding it.. making that much better WILL do it no matter what the car is, in his case I respect it! I had a Cavalier before my STi, the 2.5 Ecotec n/a, it was my only option of a car at that time, but I still did whatever I could with it because I was interested in modding just to do it, that car could handle as good if not better than my Subaru can, it was awesome.. I guess my point is, I totally understand what you're saying OP and people that flame you just don't understand sometimes, so just let it happen.
