No real hp gains will ever be seen on this model. Make it more fun to drive. Youll never get much "faster"
I'm following info and plans for the BRZ. I guess the FA20 IS that much more amazing than the FB20. I would prefer a lighter flywheel.

People have seen gains with cold air intakes. I owned a 2001 RS and highly considered getting one. Back then, though, they didn't protect as well against not sucking stuff in. They're much better these days.
