Thanks to Evasive Motorsports and CounterSpace Garage for installing everything and putting up with me and my endless questions! >.<

====================

Pics of the parts and my notes on how they feel on the car:

Wheel/Tire Upgrades:
Loving the aesthetics of the 57 Extreme wheels. The weight is similar to the stock wheels and tires. Also at these widths, they do poke outside of the fender a bit. Would definitely recommend getting coilovers w/tophats or some kind of camber kit before upgrading to wheels/tires of this size.

The RPF1 wheels on the other hand are very light and make the car feel so much more responsive and nimble. The R-S3's are also performing admirably at the track so this combination is making me quite happy







Engine/Exhaust Upgrades:
With the Greddy T518Z Turbo kit, the car is making more than 50% more power with a decently smooth spool up coming in at about 3.5k RPMs. The BOV is recirculated to keep the set up as efficient as we can. Nearly all the piping has been coated and wrapped and the car has been conservatively tuned for hard track use. With nearly 20k miles and 20+ track days with the turbo, the car is holding up pretty well. Cooling solutions include the Robispec V2 Radiator/Oil Cooler combo as well as upgraded Spal fans with a shroud by @Carolina Dyno.








Transmission Upgrades:
Currently running an Exedy Stage II Cerametallic clutch kit with lightened flywheel. So far the clutch has been pretty solid for daily driving as well as hard track use (but occasionally has issues when getting into gear from a full stop). The Cusco Type RS Limited Slip Differential has also been installed and is one of my favorite upgrades. Makes the car much easier to push hard through corners even with sport traction control on. And lastly a little weight savings in the form of a DriveShaft Shop carbon fiber driveshaft.










Suspension Upgrades:
The JRZ RS coilovers have provided amazing damping on fairly stiff springs (Hypercoil 9k F/11k R). Every click makes a noticeable difference! The Robispec front control arms added sharper and more direct steering feel and the anti-dive characteristics make the car feel much more stable under braking, acceleration and shifting. The SPL rear control arms have been solid with easier camber adjustment as well as decent access to the compression adjustment knobs on the JRZs. Strut and sway bars have stiffened up the car all around and the car in general is set up for neutral to mild oversteer.
















Brake Upgrades:
Having used (and loved) the AP Racing J-Hook Rotors for my GT-R, I was already leaning towards the AP Racing "Sprint" Big Brake Kit but after an excellent sales pitch by CSG Mike, I was sold. Not only do I get to reunite with those rotors for the BRZ, I found out the brake pads for these calipers are so much thicker than the stock pads, which should lead to far fewer pad changes on top of the additional ventilation from the rotors. Any additional stopping power is just icing on the cake. Also with the new brake kit, I've also committed to separate track and street sets of brake pads and added some Stoptech slotted rotors for the rear for a little more ventilation as well.






Interior:
Installed the FA20Club AC Vent Multi-gauge. Plugs straight into the ODBII port and with it, I'm now able to keep track of Oil/Coolant temps, AFR, Boost, etc.




Exterior/Aero:
The TOM's LED Tail Lamps [JDM] and VG Sharkfin Antennae are the only purely cosmetic mods that I've added to the car but I've been quite happy with both. The tail lamps required some re-wiring to work with the USDM harness but Evasive handled it like the pros that they are! Also running full APR aero as well as a Voltex 1600mm wing for extra downforce. The Seibon VS Carbon Fiber hood was added for extra ventilation (despite being slightly heavier than stock >.<)!








Latest Dyno:

Mustang Dyno:


Dynojet Dyno (with Heat Soak comparison):


Dynapak Dyno:



====================

Thanks for taking a look and again if you guys have any feedback, I'd love to hear it!

Great wheel/tire choice but as you stated the car is dying for a proper coilover setup.

Yeah >.< I've ordered a set of JRZ RS Coilovers but they ran into a small issue of the coilovers making contact with the lower suspension parts in some settings or something like that so they're looking into it before they ship it out. Hopefully soon though!

It was nice meeting you too! Here's a pic of your ride that my wife took right after your track run. I'm also looking forward to your JRZs. They should be really nice!

I'll probably be switching to Hankook Ventus R-S3's with my next tire change though.

Those 57extremes look great! What mods were on the car when you were at Streets last November for the first 86 challenge event? I was the other guy in stock class. Stock FR-S with the exception of Carbotech XP10/XP8 pads.

You should add an oil cooler as your next mod.

Thanks! And for that event, the only mod I had was switching out the stock Michelins for the Z1 Star Spec tires. Everything else was bone stock. You were certainly giving me a run for my money though! Everytime I was almost happy with my laptimes, I kept seeing you creeping up the laptime list and it kept pushing me in my following sessions Hope you can make it to one of the next few 86 Challenge events!

Thanks for the suggestion! I've actually been looking into them and I'm leaning towards the Greddy oil cooler (as I'm kind of a brand loyalist :P) but at the moment I'm not really experiencing problems with oil temps even at the track. However, my car is about to get an EcuTek tune from Evasive at the end of this week and if the car shows any signs of overheating at the track with the tune, this will definitely be the next mod on my list. Appreciate the tip though! ^_^

So my JRZ RS coilovers have finally arrived! While I was waiting for them, I also ordered the Perrin Crank Pulley, EVS 70mm front pipe, and Cusco sway bars (20mm Hard Front / 16mm Hard Rear) so there was quite the stockpile of stuff waiting for me at Evasive today...

I was originally only going to get the front pipe and pulley installed then get the car tuned with an EcuTek setup today but Evasive had found some issues with the fuel timing when using 91 octane with their BRZ. So we decided to postpone the tune while they hear back on their issues and just install all the parts they had in hand for me and deal with all the fine tuning at a later date.

Anyways - lets move onto pictures!

JRZ RS Coilovers:
After paying up front and waiting for weeks with patience, I finally got to see my most eagerly awaited upgrade. I had been debating between the JRZ RS and the KW Variant 3 coilovers for many reasons but at the end of the day, I decided to go with the JRZ setup hoping that the performance, high praise for the brand and built-in camber plates would outweigh the price differential.



The springs that came with are 550 lbs/inch in the front and 600-610 lbs/inch in the rear. I had my stock wheels on from my last track event and I wanted to get the alignment/corner balancing done with my 19" 57Extremes so we only did a general installation today with -3.5 degrees of camber in the front and -3.0 in the rear (similar to what Evasive is running on their BRZ). The drop looks to be about 1 inch lower than the stock suspension but with these settings, the stock wheels now look sunken in the fenders >.< I'm actually glad I have my 8.5 and 9.5 width wheels to fill out that space.

I've only driven on them for an afternoon so far but I've already experienced a noticeable difference in the car's stability in corners and under braking so I have high hopes for their performance at the track. There was a slight floaty feeling at the beginning but it seems to be slowly going away so hopefully it's just the coilovers settling in after installation. Overall the car feels much more firm and I'm getting more road feedback (i.e. road imperfections are definitely more noticeable). It still feels nice enough for daily driving though and I'm really only noticing the stiffness of the springs going over speed bumps where I quickly discovered I can't take them at the speeds that I did with the stock suspension lol.









I'll try to get a more thorough review up after my next track event.


Cusco Front and Rear Swaybars:
Pretty straight forward upgrade. I did debate a little between the soft (16mm F/14mm R) and hard (20mm F/16mm R) sets but after doing some research, it looked like the hard set wasn't as thick as other swaybar brands/options so I'm hoping they make the car feel better on track but not so stiff where I lose sense of the limits of the tires.



====================

I'll update with more pictures in a couple weeks when I get my alignment and corner balancing done and hopefully I'll also remember to get pictures of the new front pipe and swaybars while the car is on the lift next time >.<

And last but not least - thanks a ton to Dennis, Randy and the awesome mechanics at Evasive Motorsports for taking the time to answer all my questions and deal with all my last minute requests. I can't recommend these guys highly enough!

Finally got my alignment, corner balance and ride height adjustment done yesterday. Also purchased and installed a set of Cusco Rear Pillowball Lateral Links for some additional camber in the rear.









Ran at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway a couple weeks ago on the JRZ's. Was completely impressed with how much of a difference 1 click makes on the dampers. After some trial and error, ended up with 6/22 clicks from full stiff on the fronts and 8/22 clicks from full stiff on the rears. Rebound settings were left where Evasive started me off at 7/14 clicks from full stiff. Will probably make further adjustments now that my alignment/corner balance are dialed in.

Next change will probably be committing to a more track friendly set of wheels/tire. Debating between lightweight 17x8 or 17x9 (possibly RPF1's or TE37's) OR selling my 19's and just switching to a 18x9.5 57Extreme set similar to Evasive's BRZ set up for all around duty. Any feedback would be appreciated

And lastly had a friendly discussion with Evasive regarding the HKS supercharger kit and oil cooler kit. Found out they may be installing the upcoming Greddy turbo kit on their BRZ so I'm extremely interested to see how it all pans out as both kits are very high on my list for my stage 2 upgrades.

Settled on a new set of wheels/tires for track purposes: Enkei RPF1 17x9's wrapped in Hankook Ventus R-S3's at 225/45/17. So far they feel amazing both on the street and at the track! As heavy as my 19" 57Extreme's made my car feel from stock - these are on the opposite side of the spectrum. The car feels more responsive and nimble and I can't recommend them enough.





I'll probably be selling my 19" 57 Extreme's very soon and getting a set of 18x9.5's as my street set. If you have any interest, let me know or just keep an eye out for the classified post in the next week or two.
