The FA24 was designed for torque, not horsepower. It is great for heavy SUV applications, not so much for performance cars. While torque sells cars, hp wins races. FA24 was literally designed for the Ascent and its towing capabilities. I am not sure if it will be a good fit for something like the STI.
