Talking 2013 FireSuperStorm

Hi, this is my budget build 2013 Firestorm 6-speed supercharged Scion FR-S. The goals behind this car are based around keeping it reliable for daily driving and within my modest budget. Most parts I am sourcing through local Phoenix, AZ forum members and vendors. Pictures are posted chronologically below.



Video walk around

Engine:
Sprintex 210 supercharger
Raceseng 70mm pulley
Magnaflow catback exhaust
Mishimoto oil cooler
EcuTek, tuned by Moto-East
E85 fueled

Suspension/Wheels:
Motegi MR125 17x7.5 wheels (16.3 lbs)
Kumho Ecsta ATS 225x45 tires
Eibach Pro-Kit lowering springs
Eibach front and rear adjustable sway bars

Exterior:
Subaru BRZ trunk/spoiler
30% tint
Blacked out headlights (asphalt gray paint)
VHT Niteshades tinted taillights
Plastidip emblems
Custom FRSC emblem from Toyota
Kensen 6000K HID headlight conversion

Interior:
Escort SmartRadar

History:
Purchased new on June 16, 2014, about a week before my dealer was getting 2015s delivered. Bought for $21,5xx + tax. I sold my 2007 350Z and 2011 ZX6-R to fund this purchase.



First mods were to remove FRS and dealer emblems, plastidip the Scion badge, and VHT Niteshades the taillights.



I then found a local forum member who was wanting to swap his BRZ trunk lid for one without a spoiler. I find the BRZ spoiler much nicer than the Scion option.



There's quite a few speed/red-light cameras in my area, so this Escort SmartRadar unit is of help. Full database of camera locations, plus live alerts, etc. Same internals as the 9500ix, too.



At an AZ86 tech day I received some help with blacking out the headlight housings with FRS Asphalt paint. It was the perfect color choice and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Thanks @jeffsides for the assistance.



Another local had Motegi MR125 17x7.5s for sale. These weigh 16.3 lbs, so it was a nice upgrade. I initially put my Primacy tires on, but two flats later, I went with the marginally better Kumho Ecsta ATS 225x45x17 tires.




As usual, my next purchase was from a local. This time a guy was selling the Eibach Pro Plus Kit springs and sway bars.





Next up is a used Manzo/M2 catback exhaust I got on the cheap, which will be a good hold over until I can source something nicer. This is a little loud for my liking.



Next up on the list? Ordered a Sprintex 210 supercharger, which will be delivered and installed soon. Longer term? Flex fuel, UEL header, and new exhaust. LCAs may come in soon to adjust camber a bit better on the back.

Non-intercooled, tuned by Moto-East. Will be running E85.
Check the Forced Induction forum for a few threads that are stickied. They give excellent references for numbers.

Installed a second-hand Magnaflow exhaust. Fitment is perfect and the sound is very quiet, which is exactly what I was wanting after having my Manzo exhaust for few long months.
