Green line is a baseline of a different stock brz at the same dyno/location. I didn't do a baseline so that picture is the best comparison I could provide.

Any vids of just subframe risers?

Nope.

Subframe risers shouldn't cause any noises like that though. Maybe more NVH due to the fact that you're going from rubber to aluminum but that's it.

I've also thought about raising rear tire pressure a bit to lower the rear grip level and help take some additional stress off of the OEM axles.

Phew. Popping noise was from my lug nuts not being tightened all the way on one of my wheels haha. There's still some clicking noise when I go over bumps, but I think it's from the trunk panels.

So axles are good for now. I can't imagine them being that weak if mine are still good after all the abuse this car has gotten. I'm starting to reconsider all this riser stuff, might just get the 600hp axles and call it good.

I'm sure I've jinxed myself and they will go next event.

What shop did the tune for you and was it affordable? I'm curious about getting this done to take care of the altitude loss but have zero experience about ECU tuning and what is needed to make it effective.

Adam at Revolutions Performance did the tune. They're in the springs, just google them. Prices are very reasonable compared to other shops. They're an ecutek dealer as well so it's a one stop shop. Again, the power difference is very noticeable and I would definitely recommend it if you're staying NA.

Huge thanks for the help1 I'm not too far from the Springs and I'll reach out to them to get my questions answered.

Sold Regas, got some Blitz 03's.



Might be a little while before they go on, want to get new lips put on the fronts. Rockin the R33's for now though, they're really growin on me.


@Touge Factory hooked it up with some fluids. Much needed after all the abuse its been through.



Also had headers wrapped by Mofab. Getting ready for drift event this Sunday.

Still all about this thing. Need to figure out a better place to mount my gopro though.

Tony Angelo hooked it up with some knuckles. Measured about 56-58 degrees. Don't know what stock is, I think about 45? Nothin crazy but definitely feels better, no rubbing even. Stoked to try these out at next event!

Other pair of 03's should be back next week. Also on the lookout for a spoiler less trunk, or maybe cooler spoiler.

Got to test out the new setup today. So awesome! Angle difference is definitely noticeable. Vid's don't really do any justice but I'll post anyways.

Love this car so much. Haven't had this much fun driving in a while!





This run isn't great, but cooler initiation.



Can't wait for free booze and sea level power in a couple of weeks!
