If this is what the 2.3L can do, the 2.7L must be an absolute beast.

Just sayin'.

I am hesitant to accept your assertion that over 50% of the members of this forum are proficient with a manual transmission without some documentation. Even if accurate and less than half are pushed into an automatic because they feel they have no choice based on their knowledge and experience, that still means they settled for it as they had no (real or perceived) choice in the matter. For those who have the knowledge and choose the automatic, such as yourself, you had a choice and, for you, did not settle, you chose. Big difference. Accepting something because it is the only viable item is not the same as accepting something when you have choice.

I would opine that without a choice (again, real or perceived), by definition, you are settling.
Wow that poll has blown up to over 7 pages in 1 hour so I’m glad you asked for documentation.

Well the results are in and with over 250 respondents so far, 93%+ of B6G members say they can drive a stick. @Rubisquatch for the win!

I am so in love with my manual Bronco already, and we haven’t even met!

-For all those ‘little times’ when you just need a bit of 4L.
-It didn’t even occur to me the crawler gear wouldn’t be synchro’d but now that he said it I’m glad to hear it!

Starting at around 18:50 in the video, he talks about a "clutch-type locker" that allows the diffs to slip when needed. This is the first I've heard about that. Anyone have any more information on it? Is it part of the "Advanced 4x4" package that's standard with the BL, FE, and Wildtrack?

let the dinosaurs lie, it's ok bro :)

for reference, my wife's Subaru Ascent has a tuned down STI motor in it from the factory. Just a 2.4L flat 4, that makes about 260/280 in a car that weighs well over 4300 lbs. It'll happily hit 95 on freeway onramps.

I'm really looking forward to my 'wimpy 4-banger'

I believe its part of the Sasquatch™ Package so all models can get it. The BL comes with HOSS as a standard
17" black-painted aluminum beadlock-capable wheels with 35" LT315/70R17 BSW Mud-Terrain tires, electronic-locking front and rear axles, 4.7 Final Drive Ratio, high-clearance suspension, position-sensitive Bilstein™ shock absorbers, and high-clearance fender flares

That caught my attention too. Awesome if true, but I suspect that was inaccurate.

2.7 is jammed in the engine bay; 2.3 you got more room to work with — from a long term maintenance perspective it's something to also consider

That 2.4 is a good , I can't wait to see how it feels in the BRZ.

Power to weight on the 4 door is better than the jeep and 4runner.

Also I like to give them shit it's fun to hear get off my grass
