He had a lumbar pillow in also from Sparco that made the seat much more comfortable.

Not to confuse you or anything, but just curious why you haven't considered a Caymen? I've spoken to quite a few instructors that run them and they are fantastic track cars. I had a standard Boxster for a little while and it felt very connected to the road and the handling manners were fantastic. For the price of used Caymen/S you could do a little work to it and it'd be an unbelievable track day weapon. Still, the Z06 will be faster without a doubt.
