mokinbird87`s BRZ

I traded in my old bugeye (close to 200k miles original engine, tranny, etc) as I found myself driving my brother`s miata more often As I come from the old school subaru world, I plan on bringing out more of the old school subaru out of this car. I`m also fabricating a few things on my own. stay tuned!

custom side vents
http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59345

custom rear diffuser
http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59202

performance figures:
weight: stock
power: stock

bought the BRZ limited in that famous world rally blue I told myself I wouldnt modify this one... I already debadged the car in about a week (march, 2013)


waited till the 1000 mark...


JDM goodies




and the part I enjoy the most!




going for that old school subaru look (9/20/13)



sti titanium shift knob. love the way it looks, didnt care for way it feels... even the stock one is heavier, and it is too small for my hand. (2/20/14)



and then finally my wheels came in! that was about 6 months of waiting... these wheels pay an homage to the tarmac rally days that subaru is known for (2/28/14)





new shift knob to replace the sti one. (3/24/14) I like this one because it`s heavier, it sits lower and it`s a good diameter. I also like how it matches my interior trim.



ordered the replica front lip. these are gonna need a little wet sanding and some TLC... guess you get what you pay for, but I didnt wanna pay a lot for something I am going to destroy. (3/24/14)



JDM gurney flap also came in today this is the single most expensive piece of rubber I have ever paid for lol (3/24/14)


(3/25/14)
installed the replica lip and the jdm gurney flap. I needed to wet-sand and buff the hell out of the front lip as its surface quality was... well, what I paid for really.

before:


after:








gurney flap. took me a few tries to get it aligned right. the sti decal.. well i only had one go at it

literally, tape on the gurney flap and make sure you align it right (took me a few tries), and then drill two holes to fit the screw onto. I started with a smaller bit and worked my way up till the screws went in tightly.

and this thing has been progressing nicely... not a paint gun/booth quality, but not too shabby for a spray can. it`s like a 90% match.
