Wuuu's BRZ Build

Hey everyone, I recently picked up my 2014 BRZ - SWP Sport-Tech and wanted to start out with a build thread as a chance to get to know the community and share the build.

My previous vehicle was a 2008 EVO X. The intentions for this BRZ build follow the same principles as the X - to make a street-friendly but track competitive car. I'm extremely impressed with the BRZ so far straight out of the box and looking forward to the track season.

Below are a few pics of my old EVO X and a quick snap of the BRZ. More updates to come - stay tuned!

Updates:

Ohlins DFV

Haven't posted for a while now, but recently had some time to install my new set of Ohlin DFV Coilovers. The install went really smooth with almost no problems at all. I was lucky enough to have a friend help out (thanks @laksman91) with the install. He did his own set a few days prior and learned all the tips and tricks from assembling the coils correctly to installation also. As a result, Laks and I were able to get these babies in within 3 hours.

I'd say i'm really impressed with with the overall build quality and functionality. With only having these coils installed and nothing else, there is a significant increase in grip and confidence when going through corners without sacrificing any comfort whatsoever.

The alignment is planned to take place sometime this week. The front camber is dialed in to whatever the maximum it can be adjusted to based on the ohlins camber plates. I'd have to sift through some more posts here on this forum to find out some suggested alignment specs. I'm hoping to test these out at the track sometime soon to provide some detailed feedback.
