Ill play:
1- 03 WRX; All stock bugeye components except catless TBE; 3rd gear
2- Running 3rd out to 8000 is very satisfying. Still pulls hard in 3rd and the howl it makes from 6-8k makes me wet.

03 WRX with vf34, lots of susp mods, 06 4/2 pots, 07 6spd, 3rd gear is great....**** starts to happen, pulls hard in 4 & 5th too, but getting in to huge ticket territory. Third is still within highway speeds, pulls at lower rpm and can wring it out a bit.

With the 6 spd it isnt laggy, I have full boost by 4200. Maybe the meth helps? I went huge top mount. My car is a dd but I live in the mountains so my driving is different than most. The 1.5 and 2.5 are very simular I went with the 10cm hot side because I do twist it up to 8k.

My favorite part is the format.
Why put the base line stuff (car and mods) in the same line as the object of the "poll". And why not use a poll for this, rather than just a list of posts?

1. 2012 Speed Triple 1050
2. Arrow GP Style Exhaust
3. All Gears 2-6
4. Because Motorcycle

I like 7th gear the best. I was born in Xan's birthtown, so I guess this is also the best thread I've ever read.
