The only thing that makes a car fun to drive is the driver/owner of the car.

my personal preference of a fun car.
1. sensitive and straight forward steering respond
2. linear, sensitive and quick throttle respond
3. handles like a go kart (point and shoot type handling)
4. Power wise around 200~350WHP is good enough
5. Light weight body
6. No driver's aid (except PS)

Similar criteria like mine but it doesn't have to be super light weight like Lotus Elise or Ariel Atom though, as long as not too heavy (maybe not more than 1.5 ton curb weight) and have enough power to carry the weight and can still handle well (more neutral instead of understeering).

Agreed.

A Type R fits that description to a tee for me.

pressure is more important or the l/h?
wat if a car is fit with a 60l/h @ 3 bar internal pump in fuel tank and connect to a 80l/h @ 0.3 bar external pump near the engine bay after the fuel filter?
