DSOmegaX STi BRZ tS Completed Build



DSOmegaX
2013 Subaru BRZ Limited
2019 BMW M2 Competition DCT | Build Thread

Introduction
Hey everyone, this build thread documents my STI tS project for my BRZ. What started as a simple OEM+ build when I first purchased the car has grown immensely into creating the zenki model that never made it here in the US. With the help and support of good friends, I am pleased to announce that the goal has been achieved! Modifications installed are listed with links to purchase for those interested.

Why? Factory paint is already completely cured and gassed out by the time it hits the boat.

Yeah I miss it. I don't regret the decision though of course haha. But I did sink a lot of time and money to tune it right.

EDIT: Image dump of previous pictures will go here.







































































NOTE: the following is a collection of photos taken of my car from various supporters, friends, and enthusiasts. If you find anymore out there, let me know!

Finally made updates to this thread. I was rear ended at a stop light recently. Minor cosmetic damage on the bumper cover, but destroyed the reinforcement bar inside.



After that, decided to come back with a vengeance! Installed Stromung and Motiv exhaust components, FA20 tune, STI springs, and a few JPM Coachwork goodies.

Then came back and started listing my mods and updating pics
