HELP: Questions before buying Yaris 3dr S

I had a few question before purchasing a new yaris...

1) These seats look really uncomfortable, are they... if so are there many replacements?

2) Is the head-unit Double-Din or just some weird size?

3) Whats the highest rated Turbo available for the Yaris? I found a Stage II for 3,200 but just out our curiousity how much HP are you guys getting out of yours? and how much PSI are you running?

4) There isnt any mechanical differences between the Yaris S and the base model is there?

thanks for any help guys

The fronts are smmewhat uncomfortable but it is only noticable on long road trips. (I drive 50 miles round trip to work and they don't bother me at all)

2) Is the head-unit Double-Din or just some weird size?

The head unit is double DIN

3) Whats the highest rated Turbo available for the Yaris? I found a Stage II for 3,200 but just out our curiousity how much HP are you guys getting out of yours? and how much PSI are you running?

Turbo is next to impossible to get tuned properly as of now. For 3300ish throw on the blitz S/C but remember the yaris was designed for fuel economy, not for speed.

4) There isnt any mechanical differences between the Yaris S and the base model is there?

The S model is the same drivetrain just a few upgrades like nicer interior/lip kit/ E.T.C.

thanks for any help guys

1) the seats aren't bad, not for me... and you can fit any seat in your yaris, brackets are made for sparco and all the common seat manufacturers so pick your poison

2)depending on the options you get, yes its just a double din, or its built into the dash

3)you can only really run 8lbs of boost on a stock engine, and you usually get about 180 whp out of that, anything above that and you will need to change some internal components

4)no just style
