This was todays loaner...it sucked. In dyno mode it barely even spun the tires while brakestanding the car. Just mild smoke and it kept bogging back down.

Then I noticed the knocking just off idle. It hit me then....these cars hate 87 octane!! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

It looks pretty fast based on the RPM needle. Then I remember it's a 7spd. :drive:
