That being said there are some under powered sports cars, maybe it is all in how you perceive the car..
My sports car is one of those, 105 hp from the factory, and fairly heavy @2800 lbs

So they've got us on pwr/wt ratio, but it's not designated a "sports car." I saw we meet them halfway - paint a racing stripe up the middle, and you're in!

Yeah, that's me. It's a 1.5L with Vtec, yo! That's the hot engine compared to the 1.2 and 1.3 that are available overseas.

So, it was probably more on the joke side when I joined. Didn't realize I did not un-join. Oh well, if you guys will have me... I help your numbers!

On the Z sites that I visit, my signature reads "280zx 2+2 auto .... not a sports car, a grand tourer!"

I can't speak for everyone, but I'm more than fine with you staying (especially to offset the mileage my S14 is getting in all 1 fillups I have posted thus far). Sure you don't want a racing stripe with your vtec (yo)?
Even a photoshopped racing stripe?

Also, I like the Outback - I have one too (technically my girlfriend has it) - would you consider an MSD coil upgrade? I found that with just that, it gets peppier, and if you are trying for better mileage, you can run slightly lower rpms due to the more complete burn.

Side note! I posted some pics of my S14 (with some dirty little s13 in the foreground on a couple) in an album. If anyone cares. I want to believe people care :P

That's my favorite one too. Can you find my stealth intercooler?
