Nice gradual build with fine results both visually and on the dyno. I like!

I then installed an OEM front license plate bracket to give the local police 1 less reason to pull me over.

I also installed genuine Subaru "STi" valve caps because it had none when I got it.

I love this build. Do you have a write up or a DIY sort of procedure for the projector lens swap? I think it'd be something that members (not unlike me) would be interested in.

The BRZ and HID model FRS/GT86 all use the sane projector commonly known as the RX350 projector

Awesome. If you aren't the guy making the video, did you also do the washer and shield trim he mentions?

I did both. Always trim the 2ndary shield. The washer mod is a preference for color and tuning.
