    You guys got any good links for sound upgrades?

    Basically, I have the Bespoke Premium system like most of yall, but I'm curious...isn't there a stock subwoofer somewhere? I know my stereo can control something called subwoofer, but uh....where is it? LOL!

    Kidding right ? Sure it's balanced good for stock but with wider tires and upgraded suspension can use way more than 25hp.

    I can't decide :( keep the taco or sell it and get an FR-S? Or wait a couple of years till I can afford both?

    Hmm, I may have a chance to get the TR3 stage 1 turbo system, available for up to 430 whp...yes?

    Honestly, I can't decide between a turbo or the Innovate stage 2 CARB legal kit with intercooler for the same price...

    Was able to use the rack yesterday and it worked great at highway speeds and backroads, got the correct bolts and cleaned/pained up today but no pics.

    Guess I can join this thread now. Sold the taco Friday night and bought this over the weekend. Used 2013 with 1,600 miles. My first manual and loving it, especially at 4500 rpms and up!

    Obligatory dealership pic, only one I have right now:

    I hate the sound system with Droid... It's an iPhone system for sure.

    ^Very nice looking BRZ. I LOVE that color.

    Here's a question for you guys. I have an RX7. I love it. It's changed my life. But it's a 21 year old car and I've considered getting a BRZ. My issue is that the RX7 makes about 300whp and is fast as all hell. I like the BRZ a lot in terms of looks, I can get a new one, and it's got back seats and a trunk...all good things. But I'm a little worried about it's HP potential.

    I know there are people with some big hp setups but if it's going to cost a fortune I may as well just keep what I have ya know? I'm also finding out they have severe heat issues once you add a turbo. Any advice? What power level is easily attainable with about $6k invested into a stock BRZ?

    One nice thing about the twins is you can have all the fun that you want with out have to go overly fast. It's a fun car to drive in stock form. Would it be nice to have more hp stock, yeah it would. But it's not like the car is completely noting with 200hp

    While I understand this you have to realize that my current car weighs the same amount and is just as good in the handling department; yet has about 340hp at the crank. Soooooo....yeah, the power is needed. Next time I go to the race track and come out of a corner I'll cry because I want my TT rotary back lol. :D

    For 6k I'd say you can get in the 250-300whp range without a issue.. If your happy with your 21yr old rx7 just keep it if there's nothing wrong with it. But I'd venture to say the rx7 isn't as good of a handling as the FRS/brz, its a great handling car but these cars have that 20yrs of chassis advancements over it, there's a reason people love this car in stock form who come from bigger HP cars.
