Definitely go for the Coyote if your looking at the Mustang GT. High revving, reliable and like you said, inexpensive to build. For the Vette, C6 would be a good place to be. IMO. Just watch out for those trees and posts. For some reason Mustangs tend to find their way to them...
It's most likely for sound deadening (lessening some high frequency sounds), as there is really no other reason they couldn't have made the pipe shorter. The rev range has been pushed out as well as shorter gearing means more noise
Sorry to hear that. We had some very good discussions way back when I had my 2018. I believe strongly that this life we are in is transient and there is more to come. You made it this far so I wish you the best of luck
That I'm with you guys on 100 percent. Heated mirrors and seats, dual climate were strictly cost saving measures. Even in California you need the heated mirrors for cold mornings where they are fogged up. That is definitely a reason to be upset
I saw the review a few months back, my memory unfortunately is not what it used to be. It wasn't a GLI they were reviewing but a Jetta. My bad. Anyway as a previous owner of a few VW's and a former enthusiast, I would buy the regular Civic over any VW model any day of the week or year
That's a Branch Resonator on the 27won. Honda is probably doing something similar with the 11th gen, it's probably curved like that for noise reduction. The shorter gearing means more engine noise at hwy speeds
Yep, Honda is deficiently known for making changes than going back. But in this case I don't think they are going back. For sure this is not an engine that's going to get more power, at least in ICE form
That was for a WRX STi, but that said, you'll never come out paying $27K for WRX here in California. Once you add the options that an Si has, it's well over $35K. I stick by my last statement, Apples to Oranges
The cars that you mentioned are all substantially more expensive than the Si. The WRX starts at almost $38K, the lowest trim GTi starts at $31K. Even the Toyota 86 starts at $28K. Your comparing Apples to Oranges
Keeping costs down and reliability are probably the main factors. Possibly trying to find a middle ground refining the driving experience. I'm pretty sure they thought it out before going this route. I'm willing to bet that 10th gen stock and 11th gen stock from light to light they are going to...
I doubt anyone would even notice the power decrease the way the car is tuned. Remember, the Si is a sports tuned economy car they are trying to keep affordable. If someone wants more power, they can either go the tuning route or spend more money on a more powerful vehicle.
All car manufactures...
I would never assume anything about anyone I don't know personally. I was only making a general statement that manuals are not as popular as they once were and only a small subset of drivers buy them. If you take all 10th gen Si, CTR and Accord owners that drive manuals, it's a very small...
Unleaded is $4.09 at the Costco near me. I passed by the Chevron near my house and it was $4.76. For Gas, Costco is my only choice unless I'm desperately running on fumes or traveling and there is no Costco anywhere near me
