All I have left is the turbo and downpipe. The turbo is capable of 440hp with supporting mods

Anyone else notice that the new Cadillac ATS commercial said its turbo?

2L turbo rwd 6-speed, 272hp. Has an awd option I think, and starts at $33k then goes way up there in price. To me it sounds like its trying to compete with the bmw 1 series.

Nope, 3 series. Every 3 series on the lot goes for 40+ k with like 1 or 2 options. I really doubt it'll beat it though. Looks good, but size n reputation might be its downfall. Seriously, the cts has a tiny back seat, I can only imagine the ats...lol

I dont know if its all in my head, but since im using the same roads to get to work for some reason I think the wing makes a hell of diference on traction/downforce. I take this on-ramp thats almost a complete circle and my ass end tends to stay put and not swing around. Its mainly where I mess with my DCCD (DRIVER CONTROLLED CENTER DIFFERENTIAL). Its a 40mph on-ramp and ive pushed as far as 65 before I hear my tires trying to stay put. Also our highway is 75mph and I do 85, its just a really smooth ride. Really responsive at those speeds.

Probably not, the sedan has better handling due to stiffer structure. I hate how mine wallows mid turn on bumps. I doubt yours does that.

About to have a plasti dip spree this weekend. Doing wheels, side chrome badges, and minor mod on the front bumper to make it look as if it had a "bigger mouth". I was thinking about doing the roof and part of the wing too but might hold off on it a bit. All I'm messing is the color black. I'll keep you all updated for the interested ones.

has nothing to do with the 'structure'...HAS to do with the suspension and the bushings being bubble gum soft

On mine yes, on sti...actually, I drove Ralph's new sti sedan and its just a little firmer than my wrx's....but much better mid turn. I really liked the 6 speeds feel vs the 5 speed.

Just a few shots my buddy took. This is basically stock without the cosmetic upgrades.

One thing I started to notice that looked out of place is the third brake light on the inside of the back window. Looks like a small blob just sitting back there. Looking into doing the formula 1 brake light mod and get rid of the stock one.

I was chilling at Peter Pipers and a brand new Red FR-S pulled in next to us. So I invited him out.
