pretty much haha, back and forth they go with upgrades along the way.








































lots and lots of work went down so far, for the front I changed the rubbing in the pockets of the control arms which alone made the car feel amazing... I stripped everything out and under coated it all along with wrapping my exhaust well worth it all even though its a pain.

all the sand blasted powder coated stuff was add along with the upgraded bushings and oem subaru bolts.





the only thing missing now is the front GR sti knuckle bearings, the sti sealed bearings are being made into 5x100 from 5x114 thanks to my good friend that owns a machine shop




super rare no longer made front bumper clips got made from a 3D printer collage kid which made them so good there better then the real ones.. he used some hard plastic and chemical to harden the clips so they last long.





looks amazing now with the second trim on the top of the bumper very happy now.




with all the new bushings repaired shocks & fixed cross member, it feels amazing drives like its on rails ! point and shoot now feel ! ... I still need a corner balance & alignment done so it will only get much better.









straight from japan !! this is the holy grail of part numbers for my car. with this book and part numbers all I can say is WOW WOW..... there is a boat all read in bound from japan to canada with my new parts on it like the JDM skirt kit, the jdm air dam along with much much more things for this car and my other build the Leone Wagon.

Can I get some more detail on how you did the BRZ filler? more specifically, the coolant crossover pipe. This is one issue i'm looking at with my swap that I've yet to find a proper result for.

BTW, love the 124 Spyder in the background. I almost bought me one of those a while back.

its a plastic piece cut the hose where you want it and add it in the highest spot which is pretty much where i have it.. make something to hold it in place..

You could take all the money you spent on that car and buy a Boeing 737. But it is very very cool!
