I did notice that it pulled harder through the whole RPM range with the 2000 intake mani. It is also louder inside the cabin with the mani. Racing down the track backwards would be fun, but it kinda sucks bouncing of the rev limiter most of the way down the track backwards.
The track only let you go backwards after you signed like a waiver to do it. There was only 4 people that decided to do it. The track was in Norwalk, OH Clicky Clicky
Well i would tell an STi that i'd race them in reverse, but i'm not an Auto so i don't think the gear ratio's would be the same. But he'll always remember he got beat by a Focus, cuz i won't let it die!
