Hotchkis Springs/Megan rear toe arms/Stainless Steel brake lines

Aside from a few little cosmetic modifications (tinted headlights, redded tails) Hotchkis springs, Megan Racing toe arms, and Stoptech stainless steel brake lines were the first install.

Tomika intake tube/HKS drop-in air filter

Added a Tomika intake tube and HKS drop-in air filter. Sticking with a drop in for easy replacement in the future. I bought the Tomika tube because at the time it was one of the only tubes that you could keep the intake sound generator. I want to keep the noise generator because with your windows down and a helmet on (like on a track day) its way to hard to hear the car as is.

The FRS isn't too new. I bought it in March 2013. Just starting the journal now.

Here is a couple pictures of my S13

Time to finally get rid of the awful stock tires and gaudy stock rims. I ordered four XXR 527 18" x 8.75" +35. These seemed like a great compromise or form and function. I also ordered four of the just released Dunlop Direzza Z102 in 235/40/18. The specs on my tires of choice aren't to impressive, but they are perfect for a street driven FRS.

Watkins Glen HPDE

Watkins Glen is surely one of the best tracks in the nation. I highly recommend it to any track addict.

Exhaust

Installed the Invidia Q300 with Invidia Catless resonated front pipe. I hear from other threads that only a header makes power. I want to go all out on the header and have the rest of the exhaust tame it down. Thinking the Openflash UEL header soon.

Nice looking S13 (always preferred the shark nose to the pig nose)

Have you looked at FT86Speedfactory's UEL header?

Thank you.

I have and I like that header too. However I will be getting an OFT. I like that the OFT tune is designed particularly for the OFH. It seems inefficient to have a tune that was meant for one header (the OFH) and use another (even though they seem similar). It probably doesn't make any difference but it makes sense in my mind.

BTW - I recently purchased Diode Dynamics fog light kit and it is a great quality part. I hated the blank spot where the fogs were supposed to go. The front end looks complete now. Just wanted to say thanks. Pictures to come.

I have not been a fan of those wheels but the more I see them the more I like them. I am REALLY hoping to make it to a few track days this year. Woudl love to go to the glenn, just need the money/time off from work. Seems like the best bang for the buck vs spending 375 to do the day at LRP

The wheels are cheap and nice for daily driving. I plan on buying a set of 17" x 9" RPF1's with sticky tires for the track at some point.

Love Watkins Glen. I used to live in NY. How much did you pay for the wheels and tires together if you dont mind me asking?
