Yeah it's cool, and I realize the new car isn't gonna cut it for a lot of previous owners. There's just no way an oem UEL would make the jump to DI and a twin-scroll turbo. Cylinder 4 ringlands tend to have issues with UEL, and that's before 1600 psi DI fuel pumps. The rumble was good while it lasted, but I'm sure an aftermarket exhaust will give the car some sort of appeal. I hope.
Also, 5.2 seconds in track mode.
