@ the power curve. Pass.
Not to mention that they will have kits with smaller turbos that still make a **** load of power and spool sooner. If you want to make the power earlier, buy a smaller turbo. If you want the biggest dick on the block, get the GT35R. Who am I kidding though, it's not like any of you even own BRZs or would ever buy this kit anyways.
And I still think a mild supercharger set up is the way to go whit these cars.
Superchargers help with midrange and don't create the heat issues of a turbo system.

Third, the ENTIRE power-band is higher than the stock car, even low rpm. So the fact that it makes more power up top, and the same or better down low, makes it slow?
It's over 300 hp from 5000rpm on. the stock car peaked at 200. Every shift will be 100% in the boosted zones and higher gears the rev drop will be small enough that you'll go from like 500hp to 450hp. If you're trying to go fast at 3000rpm with a car that raps out to 8000 you're a dumbass. Downshift idiot.
Yeah it's peaky, but that'd be a beast to drive, especially with how it winds the power out up top.
And if you're going to start talking $$ vs reliability vs mods, GTFO now. You have no place in a modding discussion.

Inflation: used to be "big turbo BRZ 521 whp!" and now it is "521 whp STOCK motor BRZ"
That car has almost everything done except internals. Porting or polishing doesn't change parts - I wouldn't still call those STOCK or even stock...
