Never installed that mid-pipe with resonator delete. I got it but I had to move and I had to get rid of it.

Sooo....About 2 weeks ago, installed an Invidia catless resonated front pipe and PLM over pipe.
Bad for environment. Smells bad. Improves the sound, but still need a catback.
BS about my install and sound clips, here:



BTW, I heard photobucket is breaking links everywhere, which is why I used an attachment for this post.
But I can still see the pics above. Are you guys seeing them or am I just seeing them because it's my account?

Got license plate frame for my birthday.


06/09/2018
Got a catback. Sure looks lonely on the other side.
Also started using E85.



Sound Clips:
[ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfNgBN1WSUY[/ame]

.
Buddy Club Racing Spec Titanium Exhaust - 11lbs
Thoughts. Very loud without silencer. Would be annoying on a long trip without silencer installed. With silencer, sounds fine, but a bit raspy on accel.
So far exhaust
Header - JDL UEL
OP - PLM
FP - Invidia Catless, Resonated
Catback - Buddy Club Racing Spec.


06/16/2018-06/17/2018
I went to an autocross class and my 2nd ever autocross. Did way bad! Got lost on the course first couple runs. Found out the rules. Have to have at least 1 cat to be in STX. Will either be swapping out to a High Flow Front Pipe or will have to get super good to compete in more open classes in the future.



Next Up
Looking to get new tires and wheels, but also focused on my MK3 Supra project.

Riced it out a bit.
Between my Exhaust, 2-seater status, and <1/2 tank of gas, I'm about ~2612lbs, down 146lbs from Stock 2758lbs.

Nice man I'm all about light weight and Na as well. Couple small things if you haven't considered yet.

-Did you remove the rear seat belts and all the brackets / hardware? Good amount there 5-8 lbs.
-Full windshield fluid bottle is just over 8lbs off memory
-Oem Ac delete idler pulley and ridding the system 15-20lbs
-Oem Di ecu / fuel rail steel brackets -5lbs
-Steel plate under the driver side steering, 2-4 lbs
-Light weight battery save 10-15lbs


Bunch more just some small ones off the top

Thanks for the tips! Next up, plan on removing the rear belts and brackets, along with whatever sound deadening is under the front carpet, and maybe intake sound generator & resonator delete.
Battery soonish, maybe after winter. lightweight seats next year. A/C Not sure yet!! haha
Maybe Driveshaft soon.
Also have some other longer term plans.

.
Anyways, on to this update.

8/7/2018

Received a set of WedsSports TC105N.
17x9 +35
Circuit White.

Last set @Gruppe-s had in stock, and he said maybe even the last set in the country.
If so....

They are a great vendor. Decent price, lower than what I found online. SUPER FAST Shipping. Ordered it on 8/4, had them on my doorstop on 8/7. Got pictures of them packing it. Got some swag. Also ordered the hubcentric caps.

Preliminary weight for just the wheels says ~16lbs flat. But this is on a human scale. My smaller precise scale can weigh up to 10000g (~22lb) so I'll confirm exact weight soon.




8/9/2018

- Ordered me a set of Continental ExtremeContact Sport ( supposedly the successor to the DW).
245/40R17
Really hope these tires aren't too heavy. But either way they should be much much much stickier than my stock all seasons
Arriving tomorrow!


.

- kinda/sorta related to the 86. I also ordered a Note 9! I'll shoot a lot more video and pictures with my phone. My current phone, S5 Active has scratched up camera lens so I haven't enough pictures.
Arriving 8/24!



8/11/2018

Just chillin' with my Supra.


Coming Up Next

- Some pics and weight of the wheel/tire combo
- More Autocross 9/1 hopefully
- More weight reduction.

Got my wheels installed.Feel great so far but I haven't really driven much yet.
Took a couple pics today. Here's one.



With wheel and tire mounted/balanced, measures out about ~40.4lbs each. Kind of skeptical.
1) using a bathroom scale
2) all 4 new wheels and all 4 old wheels measured 40.6lbs exactly when on there indvidually, then I measured 2 of the new wheels and 2 of the old wheels and they each measured 40.4lbs with me holding them.

I will re-measure as I get a more accurate scale eventually.

Hubcentric caps 201g for all 4

Just jumping aboard looks like you are a fellow weight reduction junkie like myself. Saw a couple of your vids on youtube.
