Agreed, I know I exaggerated a little about just needing power to match the GT3. But with more power to the Cayman there's less performance difference to warrant the huge price premium of the GT3.

So you seem to be enjoying the smoothness of the N55. You like it better than the 135?
SB, Terra, 6MT. Only a few mods here and there.....nothing extreme!
