Installed my Titan 7 Wheels 18X9.5 +40 today finally.

BFG Comp 2 A/S tires. 235/40/18 front with a 3MM Spacer. 255/35/18 Back.

So close on that stock perch.

Installed the Nameless 5" Muffled Track Pipe and Perrin Crank Pulley
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Notes: 95 dbA is the legal limit for vehicle exhaust noise in California.
Standard Sound Test Procedures: 45Degrees 17.5-20 inches away from exhaust tip. 50% or 75% RPM Band.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OEM Crank Pulley: 5lbs
OEM Bolts: 70.3g
OEM Exhaust Hanger: 65.7g
OEM Muffler: 28lbs
Idle: 65.6dba
3700rpm: 79.2dba
5550rpm: 87.6dba
--------------------------------------------------
Perrin Crank Pulley: 1.2lbs
Nameless Bolts: 79.6g
Nameless Muffled Track Pipe: 5.5lbs
Idle: 73.6dba
3700rpm: 87.2dba
5550rpm: 100dba
FT86SpeedFactory Exhaust Cover: 142.1g
--------------------------------------------------
Total Savings: 22.5lbs + 3.7lbs + 3x(65.7g) + 9.3g -142.1g
= 25.9lbs + 64.3g.

Final Thoughts: The Perrin Crank Pulley alone wasn't much, but paired with the rpf1's at -5lbs/corner does make it feel more responsive and zippy. The exhaust sounds sporty, very much alive, and daily drive-able. I couldn't get any tests past 5550rpm due to the OFT's launch control settings, but if you are worried about the noise limit you should pass in an event of a citation.(depending if they use the 50% or 75% RPM test). I doubt an uncatted UEL/EL will pass so stick with the stock setup or get a catted one to be safe.



OEM bolts are lighter so I will reuse them.

Really? Is this on 215s and stock wheels? I’m in ontario too and unless there’s snow on the ground, summer tires feel super planted. MPSS in 225 on a 8” wide wheel were planted but still playful and I could kick the back end out at will, but now Firehawks in 255 on a 9” wheel result in immortal grip basically no matter the weather

Firehawks 225/50 R16. They def don't feel planted...there's a major difference when it warms up more. I'm very careful when driving in the wet, especially when cool.

Most likely due to your taller sidewall, regardless of summer compound.

Possibly, higher sidewall tires seem more compliant to me though.



I have my Juke on summer tires right now too and it's slipping in the cold. They're low profile. Maybe I'm just nitpicking...

Took out my spare tire. Replaced it with a 18x8 Konig Oversteer & 215/40/18.

I finally did a post winter interior detail.

I hit the clutch pedal assembly hinge points with some silicone grease after being annoyed by a squeaky noise.

It may be a placebo effect but the pedal travel is definitely smoother and the squeak is gone. More notably the car now shifts smoother and I noticed less vibration in the driveline and shifter. I must be going crazy.
