Arrow Sportsguy's LS2 Swapped BRZ

I really never bothered with making one of this threads, but since then I have gotten a few goodies on my car worth sharing with you guys.

I was on the market to get a new car. I had searched around and hadn't found anything of real interest. A friend told me about the new Subaru coming soon. I researched it and was SOLD!

Put my order on March 11th, got my car June 12th, 2012. Was so excited when the day finally arrived. The car handled like a dream, everything about it was on point. After 8 months, I can definitely say it is a dream come true! I initially thought I was going to keep the car stock (looking back, who was I kidding??? What a joke!).

Next I planned on getting an intake, exhaust, tune and call it a day. While doing research, the price per HP I was going to be able to accomplish with these mods did not make sense. I really wanted more power, but was not willing to spend that much (about 3K) for a "marginal" gain. (bought and sold AVO kit due to some quality concerns)

Ran the KAB customs turbo kit for a few years with zero issues, now onto swapping the LS!

More to come......

Current status of car:

Special Thanks:

@Jason@Nameless for time and time again coming through, making awesome badass parts, and having patience with me!!

@JoeBoxer for allowing me to order parts out of the blue and get them here in time

@Pure Automotive for also getting me parts in impossible time frames!

@jazztennor @raul @C4rlosRuben for taking time off of theirs to come help me out!!

@King Tut who I have bothered with a lot of questions and is always a ring away to answer all of them, a true example of what this community should be about.

@KAB-FRS for the stupidly incredible turbo kit!

@jamesm for teaching me what tuning means and keep working with me with ZERO vested interest, just because he is a good guy that LOVES to help and enjoys tuning.

@alpine @marcoaferrer @Poros0304 for shaping up what great local meets are, ever since we got together for a meet, its been great time after great time together and sharing car moments together too.

@ATL BRZ for being my polar opposite car build wise, but appreciating it regardless.


Old AVO Dyno Plot: 300 WHP / 240 WTQ!

FINISHED new kit tune @20 PSI 460 WHP 393 WTQ

In Dynjoet speak, around 550 whp, 470 wtq




Latest: Map3 17 psi (calculation from mustang was 416 WHP +20%= 499 whp Dynojet)....

Well Rev Works Dyno IS as heartbreaker as advertised. I made 496 WHP on that map we had calculated 499....


Dat tune doe... so SMOOTH! @jamesm The Wizard hard at work. @KAB-FRS on the hardware
See below.






Update 4/27/15

Hopped on the Dyno yesterday, made 533 WHP. Temp. reading was 104F. Numbers are right in line with what I made a year and a half ago, so still running that James Martin solid tune and great Kabcustoms Sunrise turbo kit. On a cool night (75F) I made on Map3 496 WHP and on Map4 552 WHP. Yesterday on this weather I made 469 WHP on Map3 and on Map4 533 WHP. Not bad!
For reference a BRZ with intake and exhaust dynoed right before me and made 145 whp

The day I picked up the car!



Soon after ownership, met the first FRS/BRZ on the road. Co-worker and now friend @F3dzo



Initially thought I was not getting an exhaust (again who was I kidding???) and so I bought the JDM Tips.



Car sitting at work, as far away as possible from door dings



Got my Subaru badge of ownership!



Got the Chrome Fender Trim as a gift from my Salesman. Most hate it, I like it.



Started the armrest business with @schroeder69



Got one of those Shark Finns I said I would never get....



Third Brake Light, looks very nice.



WC Lathewerks Stainless Steel shift knob, just awesome!

I think those are the most UEL headers I've seen on this site yet. I'm really interested to hear what kind of sound they make. Post a vid when you get the chance!

You were holding out on me, haha. Man I want to see the AVO kit in person. How is the reception with that Shark Finn? My Perrin shorty really hurt reception.

The sound is AWESOME! You can go to Vubaru's or Nixr's build threads, they have couple of videos and it sounds glorious.

Hopefully our tuning day does happen!! BTW, I have a pic of your car in the Dyno, added to the third post.

I have had the Visual Graphics and Beat Sonic Sharkfinn. I can tell you without a doubt, with the Visual Graphics the reception is almost the same as stock. With the Beatsonic (the one I have now) the reception does suffer. I still get the same stations I used to, but some of them don't connect to HD anymore.
