No not really. Just acting like Paul with another car company and sticking around. Although since the 11 WRX has been gone there was the 12 regal GS, 06 wrangler, 13 ram hemi 4x4 quad, now 13 370z, so chances are I might have a subi sometime soon haha.

Good to be back with a sports car! I got the sports package so synchro rev match tranny, rear wing, euro shocks, rear LSD, huge 14x1.25" rotors with 4 piston front and 2 piston rears, 19x9 and 19x10 rays forged aluminium wheels (only 22.8 and 23.2 lbs) with 245/40 fronts and 275/35 rear Bridgestone RE050, and I think that's it in the package. Heck even without it the 6 speeds nice, sways are huge!, solid end links, like 400+ lbs springs (WRX rce yellows were only 330lbs), short shifter, list goes on and on. Not a bad DD though even though it feels tight and stiff in the corners. All in all should be fun!

I've already installed the GTR red push button start and clear dome light covers over the nasty solid white ones, lost some weight, RBF600 fluid, moved windshield washer bottle to the trunk, installed my AOS, made LED DTRL hooked up 24/7 when they used to turn off when the head lights came on, and SS brake lines. Not a bad week.

Ill be doing header back exhaust, my own CAI, and a tune which seems to net guys around 330rwhp and 260rwtq (yes the tq low for a big 3.7 v6 and can't touch the subis :(), stiffer springs that lower under an inch, 305/30 rear tires and 255-265/35 fronts, maybe 20mm spacers to go even wider, 20% tint, nismo high wing, and I'm sure ill find something else !Thumbs Up

I remember reading about these last year, and there was a strong consensus among performance enthusiasts that an oil cooler is a sorely needed modification. Does the sports package come with one?

Really a nice looking car and a promising platform, to say the least. I hope you show us more of it as time goes forward!

Nice, Scott! I had a 350z before my 13' WRX and loved it! Only reason it's not still with me is because of a second baby in the fam now and realization that it just wasn't practical to own anymore. I invested a small fortune into mine over an 6 year span and to get to drive it once or twice a week just sucked really. But unlike most I got the majority of my small fortune back when I sold it so I'm happy with the whole scenerio I suppose. Got $17k for it with 64k on the clock from a guy who came all the way from Michigan for it!! I paid $17k for it back in 2006 lol!

I'm very much interested in watching your build so please do troll the forum as a non WRX owner like that other trader Paul lol! :p

They got one in 2012. It's a small pathetic sandwich plate in between the oil filter and block that coolant runs through. It will not hold up to any track use. It's number 1 in the pic. Ill be building a 34 row and SS lines when the time comes. So far its a mild summer with temps not really going over 200*.

Will do!

If anyone's interest in a Z track build.

Welcome

Do it! Very very stiff and strong feeling vs the WRX. I mean it comes with 400+ in/lbs springs vs sub 200 in the Rex. The sways also are like 10mm thicker too. You kinda miss the huge down low tq but even at 250tq you break the tires like they're nothing. Lol but 285 rear tires are small in a Z. 315 would be better but a staggered Z doesn't do as well on a circuit track as 285 square does.
