From reading other posts over the years it would simply void warranty on the component you changed. I too worry about affecting my factory warranty so thought this was a pretty stealth mod that shouldn't cause me to lose any sleep at night. In other words an acceptable (for me) risk.

Some of the other regular posters will likely chime in, but I believe the general consensus is that if you are worried about warranty then do nothing!

Right now it has a catback exhaust and valenti tailights. I'm not looking for cosmetic mods like front splitters and etc. I think the car looks amazing as it is.

Reason for the $500 budget is that I dont want to be spending 2k+ for wheels, tires and coilovers. Just getting one of those is pointless but that is a plan for the future.

I am hoping for a noticeable change that comes with the modification, although I know that is asking a lot with just $500. But because I am satisfied with the way it looks right now, I am shooting for a minor performance upgrade.

I was thinking lightweight crank pulleys. From what I've researched, lighter unsprung mass in the drivetrain is always good. Subtle yes, but good nonetheless. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Any ideas or modifications you guys are running that is noticieable the way how the vehicle handles/accelerations/revs/anything really?

I proudly own a '15 FRS with AT Transmission. I would appreciate any comments

Please anything but OFT. EcuTek is the best option.

Suspension improvements; better tires, wheels, etc, allow you to go faster in the twistys or on the track, thus allowing you to use the higher torque available in the upper rpm range. So in a very real sense, these could be considered "power" or "performance" improvements as well, even more so than many engine or power train mods. Car is not about straight line speed. Just something to consider.

A few buddies and I are planning on taking the 6AM ferry. Feel free to join us if you want to!

And book a cheap hotel to spend the night. I rarely get to attend auto-x due to work schedule so I'm taking advantage of the free session on Sunday. Let me know if you are planning to do the same, itll be awesome to have more people to hang out with.

Why? The merits of a custom tune vs OTS on an NA daily driver are debatable

really surprised no one has mentioned a radar detector

$400 valentine 1.

Best mod i ever bought. Saved me a TON in speeding tickets and insurance. I average 90-100 on the highway with my daily 40 mile commute and have had a clean record for 5 years
