    A NA 2.5 flat 4 producing around 250 horsepower would be perfect.

    slow as molasses and the bicycle tires scream to stop pushing them.

    He says in the beginning in the video that the miata has a better power to weight ratio… 15.0 lb/hp for the miata and 13.5 lb/hp for the FRS….uhhh WRONG. That means its better for the FRS! Lets say the FRS went from 205 hp to 300…you'd get: 2774/300 = 9.25 lb/hp. The lower the number the better the power to weight! Now if you were calculating hp/lb (vs lb/hp) then thats a different story calculation!

    One of the best and most honest reviews of this car that's yet been done. Kudos!

    won't lie I think this car would be great with a smaller, turbocharged engine. Cut weight down but increase torque a bit kinda thing

    As an owner of a 2013 FR-S, I can easily say, yes this car does need more power. People seem to forget that the 200~205 hp isn't to the wheels, so it's really about 185-ish. If this car actually got 200~225 hp to the wheels, it would be a huge difference, along with a better gear radio and ditch the 210s for 225 tires and you'd probably have the best driving sub $30k car on the road without having to mod a damn thing.

    The only issue I see is the way that the torque curve actually drops between 3k and 4k rpm. The car actually seems too slow down when you first put your foot down. It's a fuck ton of fun once you get above 4k though.

    I am 5 '10 and i sat in the back of an frs…. the person in the passenger seat infront of me was taller than me, at least 6'2. it deff is possible, hate it when people make it seem like it literally is impossible. It just isn't very comfortable compared to a normal car obviously but if you HAD to take a 3rd or 4th person it deff is possible… especially for girls who are normally shorter than 5'10 etc.

    Flat four * not flat six – for the Subaru STI

    I believe the 86 was built the way it is so people could modify it to their view, put their own turbo or body kit, or a break kit… just like the supra, so many mod options.

    I’m guessing you’re sponsored by Rain-X? Over time it leaves a nasty film on glass that is nearly impossible to remove. I used over 20 years ago on one of my cars & never used it again.

    No need to watch the video lol.

    It's needs 40 more HP and about 80 more torque. Just ask Savage Geese who drove a supercharged one with I think 230hp.

    Absolutely RIGHT

    The majority of people don't understand this car.

    The car doesn't needs more power. Only need drivers who understand the concept of the model.

    You can never have too much power! What a grandma..

    I owned one. When you get beat by a 2006 Civic Si that is stock in your 28K "sports car" from a dig, roll, and everything in between, that's frustrating. THATS why it needs more power. And they are rolling out versions that cost 33K, that's crazy.

    It didn't become the 86. It was always the 86, it was just badged and named to appeal to Scion's demographics in the USA. Secondly, the seats are usable if you're not a giant. Leg room can be cramped if the driver is long legged.

    The FRS didn't become the gt86. Subaru and toyota developed the car together an scion was just created for americans. The gt86 didnt just appear because the FRS left.
