A stock mr2 turbo ( USA spec) will do a mid 14 sec quarter, and low 14 seconds if you are a VERY good driver. They topout stock upwards of 140-145ish. Im 5'11 and 160 pounds. I have no problems getting in and out, and I sit very comfortably in them. My cousin is my height but about 250 pounds and he has no trouble either. with the seat all the way back my legs are completly straight.
ps. to other poster, i in NO way said the sti had torque deficiancy , lol I just said the 3s has an advantage in that department and has a more useful torque curve. And it dam well needs it... friggin boat. Even looking at your chart of the cobb 1, the torquecurve doesnt actually get flat till around 3800.... while thats MUCH better then most cars around ( hondas lol) I woulndt doubt that the 3s curve is better given the physics ... (3,0v6 tiny turboS) vs. (2.5box4 bigger turbO) and of course real world data pushing this boat to mid13s with similar peak numbers.
