So, after 1.5 wonderful years of ownership, I had to part ways with the Edelbrock. The car was my daily driver and it has been so reliable, I was never worried about not making it to work or not being able to pick up my kid, etc. I can't recommend this kit highly enough. It just transforms an already awesome car into something special.
@dejahboi enjoy the kit. Feel free to post here if you have any questions. We are lucky to have a very helpful group of owners.

I highly recommend you think about Neal at The Racers' Line, who's in your area. He has installed many kits. I traveled from Oregon just to have him do it and he is an incredibly meticulous guy.

Has anyone so far installed an EB onto a '17 BRZ as of yet? Just curious, as I will be doing the install in the coming months.

Well if anything noteworthy pops up when i install my kit, I will be more than happy to share. But it will be a few months before i instal the EB. So far my 17 PP BRZ hasnt even arrived yet. But he EB has been ordered, and I already have my ACE Header sitting on the office floor just waiting to be installed.

This isnt my first BRZ, and I already had a pretty clear plan going forward with this car. And CSG is always happy to help guide me and take my donations for quality parts.

I didn't notice any obvious improvement when I didn't have it.

The only thing I noticed was sometimes the engine would struggle on initial startup, as if it was misfiring/sputtering. This only occurred when the car sat overnight and was immediately fixed by priming the fuel pump once before each startup.

I think I may have been the only one with the above sputtering problem, as other users on the forum have had the D-Box with no issues. That leads me to believe that there may have been a tuning issue, as I received a final revision of the Edelbrock tune for Zach and then added the D-Box afterwards with no additional tuning revisions.

I did exactly the same as you but i noticed a pretty big improvment. My lower RPM driving was smoothed out and i noticed smoother power delivery in the upper RPMS.

I got mine installed at the racers line right before new year! Neal has installed so many of these kits that it's like a walk in a park for him

Mine did during start-up for a min or so and would go away once I start moving.
