Switched to a Lithium battery for the weight savings.
Lost 31 lbs. off the front of the car.

Good choice, that is my plan is to shift to these as batteries start to go out. I will stay with full size replacements though.

If the full size replacements come down in price, I'd consider it. But these small ones are much less and it still has a similar CCA as the factory battery.

Bought a used HKS header and had it powder coated, and installed Professional Awesome splitter rods on my Verus splitter.

I haven’t been stage 2 since 2018, and this setup (HKs EL header + stock OP/FP + Perrin 2.5” catback) is so much more quiet than my last setup (RevWorks UEL header + Nameless downpipe + Greddy Supreme SP catback), people are 100% right when they say an aftermarket front pipe is a real noise maker.

Nice setup. Can you give details on what battery hold down and fittings you went with? Also, is that the ATX12 battery?

It's the ATX20-RS

I got the mount from Checkered Sports
https://www.checkerdsports.com/colle...mount-atx20-rs

The wiring fittings are from Antigravity, but I purchased them through Checkered Sports with the mount.
https://www.checkerdsports.com/produ...pr_seq=uniform

The mounting position is decent. I drilled holes in the body and used self-tapping screws. The screws in the front are into some bracket with good thick metal. The screws in the back are in pretty thin sheet metal. Being as the whole assembly is pretty light, I think it'll be just fine.
I also put a couple strips of thin weather stripping under the battery to act as a cushion, plus the mount from Checkered Sports was a tiny bit taller then the battery.

Well it left me stranded on the side of the highway yesterday. Gave it a new alternator and it was appeased.

So I didn't do something to MY car, but I did do something to lots of other folks' cars by turning my personal "BRZ cubby switch panel" project into an, "Ok fine, I'll 3D-print a few for some local folks" project, which then became an, "Ok fine, I'll sell them to other folks too through my blog" project, which then became a, "Whoa, I'm selling so many of these I should make a dedicated site for them project!"

And I got a new camera for Christmas, and decided to mess around with it by making a video that shows how I make them, and I just wanna share because I think it came out pretty well given I'm not a professional movie maker, lol.

That is nice! I have the older 4 position I bought off the site and I can never remember which one is which after I haven't driven the car for a while and I always forget to make labels for the switches
