Next up is to get rid of those wrx brakes and powerslot rotors. I didnt want to ubgrade all of the hubs yet so i had to source 04 STi Brembos so they would be a direct bolt-on(almost). The fronts went right on without an issue but the rears needed some help. I had the kartboy rear 2 pot adapters..i'm not sure if these are meant just for the subaru rear 2 pots calipers or if they are made for the rear brembos as well as i had to mold the plate the bracket bolted onto to get it to fit.

Stopping has definitely improved a ton. The only downfall is that they weigh ALOT. looks like i'm going to have to get some lighter wheels to combat the heavier brakes.

Currently i'm using the oem pads but hope to be upgrading soon.

yes the car is still alive and ticking, albeit, put away for the winter.

swaped off the rota torques to enkei rpf1s...much much lighter. lost almost 4lbs per wheel.


and more weight reduction. VIS carbon fiber trunk. i didnt weigh it but it is definitely alot lighter then the oem trunk. imo it is a very nice CF trunk.





I've also added our 38mm EWG Setup and boy does this thing scream! It is absolutely amazing to drive on the street with the little td04 w/ EWG Kit. The boost comes on so fast and so hard...probably one of the most fun set ups i've ever driven. All of our other PnP goodies are on it as well which helps spool up a ton too. My next move is to swap the turbo for a vf30, but now i'm wanting to keep this td04 as long as possible because it is a blast to drive with the 38mm ewg.

Matt over at 555 motorsports has been tuning the heck out of this car and that as well has alot to do with the way the car runs..which is awesome. I would recommend him to anyone...he is a very smart tuner!


my guess is we may be in the 2500lb range now which was my goal.

Nice update. Car looks great with the CF on it. Do you have numbers on the car by chance? Maybe be able to post a video also? It has been great to watch this car transform into what it is nice. Nice job Justin.

yeah i just got a gopro so i need to find some time to play with it. we have a bunch of snow here now so vids might have to wait till spring...at least of this car.


now with more CF and new headlights. i'll be painting the mesh on the hood to some other color..not sure what color though. also, the headlight housing will probably be painted as well.

i'm really starting to like the old school front bumber with the newer headlights and hood...it just looks really classic.

Nice Justin! I always enjoy seeing a update to the Project L. Keep us updated like normal and I guess we'll have to wait until spring for the video.

I just started reading on this build up, its awesome seeing the cars journey. I think after all that effort you should go for the front mount, all that carbon fiber is pretty sweet though. Decisions decisions. Keep up the good work!

LOL, seriously. I e-mailed Justin about it after he sent me, my 3 port BCS. He said they would probably be playing with it some more this year.
