Submitted For Your Consideration - A Build In Four Stages

This is my projected build of a yet-to-be-purchased Subaru BRZ Limited (Sterling Silver Metallic - Manual)

I do realize that the Nameless CAI & AOS have not been formally announced as of yet, but they have mentioned plans to make them in the past. And with their increased interest in the Innovate SC, I can only expect that they will actually do so, making these items to work with said SC (they are an Innovate vendor now).

So, on to the envisioned build list!

Subaru BRZ Limited Build - Four Stages

STAGE ONE
Cooling

Robispec Big Radiator/L2L oil cooler

Fuel System
Accelerated Performance multi-pump w/return line setup

STAGE TWO
Audio

OEM Audio Plus System 400+
Perrin Shorty 2" antenna

Brakes
DBA 5000-series T3/Spec 2-piece front brake rotors
Spiegler stainless steel front & rear brake lines, black
Hawk HP Ceramic front & rear brake pads
Motul RBF 600 brake fluid
GrimmSpeed master brake cylinder brace

Drivetrain
Chase Bays stainless steel clutch line

Shifter
Anarchy Motive Mammoth XS shift knob, white
BPS short throw shifter, black w/red reverse lockout
Perrin transmission mount/shifter bushing combo
Whiteline gearbox positive shift kit

STAGE THREE
Bushings

Whiteline crossmember kit
Whiteline differential cradle mount kit
Whiteline front differential mount kit
Whiteline positive traction kit
Whiteline support outrigger insert bushing
Whiteline front control arm inner kit
Whiteline rear trailing arm lower front kit
Whiteline steering rack & pinion mount
Whiteline upper rear control arm bushing kit

Suspension
Stance Super Sport coil overs
Stance rear LCAs
Robispec front LCAs

Wheels/Tires
Enkei RPF1 17x9 +35 wheels, black
Nitto NT05 255/40ZR17 tires
Muteki open end lug nuts, black

STAGE FOUR
Engine

Rexspeed carbon fiber hood dampers
Innovate Stage 2 supercharger kit
Nameless SC sensor plate
Nameless CAI (cold air intake)
Nameless AOS (air-oil separator)

Exhaust
Nameless 4-2-1 EL stepped long tube catless header, ceramic coated
Nameless 3" down/over pipe w/hi-flow cat
Nameless 3" mid pipe w/Helmholtz resonator
Nameless axle-back w/dual 5x8 offset mufflers & 4" tips, black powder coat

Let me know what you think!

I had a Perrin 2". Ended up selling for a VG Shark Fin. Looks MUCH better. It's a bit of a wait to get one, so a Perrin might be good for the mean time, but I'm telling you...that VG Shark Fin is gonna complete the look!

I think you have a solid plan.. I like how your addressing the "shortcomings" of the car and not just seeing how fast you can make it go first and foremost... I am big on having a good all around car more so then a car that's great in any one area.. All to often I/we see the lets throw the F/I on a otherwise stock car.. Then you get the all go and no stop, and the all performance mods but nothing to assist said mods.. Like we have a guy here in Vegas that's having issues and can't drive his full blown kitted car more then 30 mins with out it over heating in the 110* heat.. He is now looking at cooling options but money is limited, and I personally think he is taking short cuts.. I think robi cooling kit is way way over kill... But in this case I think it's a great thing.. In some things having a little bit of "too much" is better then just enough


Edit:
Also if you plan on going FI you might want to think about a clutch to sometime.. The stock one doesn't seem to be holding up.. I know it's "good" to a certain point, but it seems to be wearing out much much quicker then expected under boost, both of the FI set ups here in Vegas, have started with the slipping clutches

And my last edit:
May I ask why such a quality build/plan, and such a "bottom" of the line coilover??

Thanks for the comments!

My initial build list was a bit more than the current one, and when I added the parts costs up, it was a bit, well, expensive.

Here is my original build list:

Subaru BRZ Limited Build

Audio

OEM Audio Plus System 400+
Perrin 2" Shorty antenna

Braces
Beatrush rear differential mount support
Beatrush front bumper support brace
Beatrush front support under brace
Beatrush rear frame bar
Beatrush rear member support bar
Beatrush rear performance bars
GTSPEC fender braces

Brakes
DBA 5000-series T3/Spec 2-piece front brake rotors
Spiegler stainless steel front & rear brake lines, black
Hawk HP Ceramic front & rear brake pads
Motul RBF 600 brake fluid
GrimmSpeed master brake cylinder brace

Bushings
Whiteline crossmember kit
Whiteline differential cradle mount kit
Whiteline front differential mount kit
Whiteline positive traction kit
Whiteline support outrigger insert bushing
Whiteline front control arm inner kit
Whiteline rear trailing arm lower front kit
Whiteline steering rack & pinion mount
Whiteline upper rear control arm bushing kit

Cooling
Robispec Big Radiator/L2L oil cooler
Cusco transmission/differential cooler kit

Drivetrain
Chase Bays stainless steel clutch line
SPEC Stage 3+ clutch kit
Nameless lightweight flywheel
Cusco differential cover, silver
Driveshaft Shop 600HP axles

Engine
Rexspeed carbon fiber hood dampers
Innovate Stage 2 supercharger kit
Nameless SC sensor plate
Nameless CAI (cold air intake)
Nameless AOS (air-oil separator)
GrimmSpeed '86' oil cap

Exhaust
Nameless 4-2-1 EL stepped long tube header, ceramic coated
Nameless 3" down/over pipe w/hi-flow cat
Nameless 3" mid pipe w/Helmholtz resonator
Nameless axle-back w/dual 5x8 offset mufflers & 4" tips, black powder coat

Fuel System
Accelerated Performance multi-pump w/return line fuel system setup

Shifter
Anarchy Motive Mammoth XS shift knob, white
BPS short throw shifter, black w/red reverse lockout
Perrin transmission mount/shifter bushing combo
Whiteline gearbox positive shift kit

Suspension
Ohlins DFV Road & Track coil overs
Racer X rear lower control arms w/rod ends & dust boots, black
Racer X rear upper control arms w/spherical bearings & dust boots, black
Racer X front lower control arms w/rod ends, dust boots & RCA ball joints, black
Racer X rear trailing arms w/rod ends & dust boots, black
Racer X rear toe links w/dust boots, black
Racer X rear sway bar end links, black
Whiteline 18mm rear sway adjustable kit
Whiteline 22mm front sway adjustable kit
Robispec rear top hats

Wheels/Tires
Enkei RPF1 17x9 +35 wheels, black
Nitto NT05 255/40ZR17 tires
Muteki open end lug nuts, black

As you can see, the original suspension setup, while VERY nice, would be about 5 grand MORE than the 'compromises' setup. But I would really rather go the Ohlins/Racer X route in the long run. Towards the Stance coil overs, I have read both positive & negative things here about them; but I have not completed my research on them yet. Now I can place another vote towards the negative tally.

I see a build like this as delivering a final product that is a GREAT daily driver, and when needed, an absolute beast of a 'drive it to the track' track day vehicle! If I REALLY got serious about tracking it, I would even be tempted to have a roll cage welded in & get some racing seats & harnesses. If not a full cage, then at LEAST a harness bar. Obviously, at that point the rear seat would be deleted & sheet metal used to cover it over; or there is that EXPENSIVE Seibon carbon fiber rear seat delete option! ;^p
