Rodie's slow '13 FR-S build

Figured i'd start a build journal, so here goes:

I bought this car mid November, 2014. Another member, GTHachiRoku, had traded it in, and i happened across it while truck shopping. Struck up a conversation with a salesman, found out it was on Tein Street Flex already, and was hooked. Test drove it on quiet streets the next morning, and drove it home.

As i purchased it, it came with:

Tein Street Flex coils w/ camber plates
Perrin intake tube (sound generator delete)
TRD filter in factory airbox
toyota logos front and rear, FR-S trunk label was in the glovebox (now superglued to a drawer of my toolbox)
Scion logo pried out of the airbag

I bought the OEM black steering wheel insert and the matte black Toyota logo from FT86speedfactory to clean up the look, but without the scion logo, the toyota overlay doesn't fit. I'm still working on making it fit in enough to glue it.

my most recent purchase was last week, a set of Crawford billet Power Blocks and a Raceseng cam plate. I'm not running, nor do i plan to run boost, but in a couple of mountain thrashes i have smelled a bit of burnt oil that went away by the time we got home. I figure bulletproofing that known weak spot can't hurt.

Future mods may be sparse, but Cusco OS strut bars and OAS can will be added, and R*SR rear LCAs eventually.

Also, Enkei RPF1's in black, 17x8 or 9, with Pilot super sports for summer, stock wheels with A/S3's for colder weather are my intent.

Pics will come soon...
