Great updates man! Love the garage clean up. Looks killer. Hope you get the tuning figured out. And nice artwork on the fuel filter lol.

Little update - Over the last month or so .. I've just been correcting and fixing all of the small stuff.

-Changed oil & oil filter

-Programmed HomeLink

-Mileage adjustment to actual mileage - my original cluster fried due to stupidity. Now reads 140k instead of 172k.

-Replaced most underhood plastics: cowl, fresh battery cover, etc - $15 at the junkyard.

-Installed compass mirror. - $15 at the junkyard.

-Few software revisions

-Re-tooled my toolbag that I leave in the trunk; fire extinguisher, jumper cables, AC Converter, flashlight, all sockets / screwdriver 1/4" drive w/ bits,

Took the GoPro with me last night and recorded a quick 2-4 pull:


Car is now running a bit rich (I think the ethanol mixture has been fubar'd as of late) - I am going to reset trims and fill from my usual station.

Otherwise, pulls nicely from 40-130

I'm coming up on 3 years of ownership in June .. a little more than a month away

Crazy, I've put on 26,000 (15,000 daily driven miles of it in the first year and a half) and the car has been totally transformed from a lightly tuned stock turbo car to upgraded turbos on E85. Power figures went from roughly 220whp to 426whp.

Mileage sits at around 140,500.




Mod list as of 4/26/19

SRI w/ 85MM (Hitachi MAF) w/ custom heatshield
3 BAR MAP sensor
APR Bi-Pipe
Wagner intercoolers
F21 turbochargers w/ oversized inlets @ 24 psi
630CC EV14 injectors
Walbro 450
3" SSAC Downpipes
3" Miltek Exhaust
Clutchmasters FX400 w/ OEM flywheel
USP metal slave cylinder & braided line
Bilstein struts w/ Eibach springs
AWE Drivetrain stabilizer bar w/ hard poly mount
RS4 motor mounts
Stern Transmission mounts
AEM wideband & Glowshift boost gauge
Upgraded compass mirror
SWEDIT Headliner
ECS tuning in-line fuel pressure gauge
Catch-can
Toyguy shortshifter w/ weighed shift knob
Hartmann RS4 DTM 18x8 +35 wheels
Custom tuned by ETSpec on E85
LOTS of maintenance items.

Unopened motor or transmission

Latest set of logs indicates the car does 60mph-90mph in 3 seconds flat.

Overall, this car put me through absolute hell ... but, when the dust settles ... the car is enjoyable AF.

I don't have a ton of kill stories but, I did run a 2015-ish DCT M4 and put 5 car lengths on him from 80-135 yesterday. I am one happy camper.

Sexy. I love this body style. Two popped up for sale somewhat locally - one blue, one yellow. They were both under $4k though, so I'm assuming they were basket cases

$10k - 14k will get you a prestine OEM example or a well sorted Stage 3 car. $4k will get you ... well, junk probably

And both will get you a ticking time bomb.

Glad to hear this thing is still treating you well though, it definitely looks a lot newer than it is!
