Ya, I'm thinking 18G for me. VF52 is nice, but I think the quality of a BNR is a selling point for me.
18G with supporting mods and a good 93 tune should satisfy me, and hopefully not destroy my transmission. I'll make sure to go a bit overkill on supporting mods, in case I want to run E85 in the future. Might be pushing the limits on torque at that point though.
