For comparison, the N/A models have symmetrical headers and sound like a straight 4.

You might want to go 40 on it now, but after you've driven it at 20 you might change your mind.

Sheesh, in stock form, taken care of with routine oil changes and kept out of the weather, you should EASILY get 2000+ hours of run time.
