no matter how much more "connected" the new mustangs feel compared to previous generation ones, you still won't get the responses you get from an under 2800lbs car with a super low center of gravity that you get from the frs/brz.

yes, the frs/brz can use more power, and it's great that aftermarkets are doing something about it. but the bottom line is that toyota/subaru want this car to be "affordable", and adding FI will only up the price. who knows, rumor has it that toyota is working on a SC while subaru is working on a turbo for their respective cars, so maybe in a year or 2 they'll be available for people who are willing to pay more for a faster frs/brz.
