Finally Starting my Build!

I finally pulled the trigger on what I'm calling my stage 1.5 build!

Stage 0.5 was:
1. MGW Short Shifter
2. Charcoal AMR Drifts Staggered, 18x9 front and 18x10 rear

Stage 1.5 is:
1. Kooks 1 7/8" x 3" long tube headers
2. Kooks 3"Catted X-Pipe
3. MBRP Pro Series catback
4. JLT Intake
5. SCT Tuner with custom VMP tune
6. BMR Lower Control Arms

Parts are on their way, and I'm stoked!

I also wanted to throw a shout out to Jason (jayman33) at hypermotiveperformance.com. All of this is coming through him and doing business couldn't have been easier!

What are thoughts on the build? I'll probably need some suggestions for sticky rear tires of the 295 variety haha

---------- Post added at 07:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:37 PM ----------

I should also mention that I intend on keeping my 3.31 gears, and I have the MT82 in my grabber blue '13.

I'm looking forward to some sound for sure! I'll post videos and pics after install! I'm thinking I'll lower her soon too.

The MGW is a kit, you don't buy a bracket like the Barton.

WOW!

Got everything installed yesterday!

Boy, that header install is a project, not something I would want to attempt on stands! Mated the MBRP catback to the kook x pipe with a weld, so if you order that combo be prepared for that.

She really rips now! I feel like I woke a sleeping giant. The VMP tune is right on the money, idle is perfect, AFRs are safe, fans run a lot more though. The note is deep but quiet at idle. When you hit the gas it really screams though, burns my 275s all the way through 1st and most of 2nd at WOT, even with the new lcas!

Very satisfied overall, now it's onto looks and probable more suspension!

I'll try to get some vids posted in the next couple of days for the before and after. Also taking requests for those that are interested in the combo, I can do slow/fast etc drive bys and close ups of the fit and finish.

Additionally, ask any questions about the install for any of this stuff if you have them. Watch for uploads coming soon!

So replacing headers, some LCA's, a tuner, and some other bits is "building" a car?

Reference "starting" in the thread title. Otherwise you're free to argue semantics add much as you'd like.

I've seen a lot of your responses to threads and feedback you've left. You offer zero insight and guidance to any and everything on this site. Such a pity.

Sure thing! If you don't have exhaust yet, I'd recommend it! The sound really puts a smile on my face

I'm glad you like it brother, you choose a very good system that's pretty aggressive too. Are you happy with the tune so far?

I can't spend any more for a little bit, but lay it out for me. I want to know what's next. I've got ideas from what I have read on here. Not looking for just straight line though. I want it to do well on the corners too

I have exhaust just haven't gotten it put on yet due to hand injury and waiting for the right muffler to get here. Gotta get x pipe and LTs next. Just focused more on suspension for now. Plus splitting cost with my gun builds.

When you install, consider VMP for the new tune, it's worth the extra money. This tune really pulls. What's your suspension build?

I already got BAMA lifetime tunes. They pull hard and run smooth. Right now I already have SR springs and I'm planning on BMR for pan hard bar and bracket, LCA and relocation brackets and adjustable UCA and bracket. That's what I'm getting before I put springs on then I'm going to do a few chassis bars and watts link maybe.

Meridan5.0, tell me why you're doing the suspension mods. What performance/handling increases will it give you?

The UCA and bracket reduce wheel hop and realign the pinion angle of the driveshaft after lowering the car.

The LCA reduce flex and help keep the tires planted.

The LCA relocation brackets realign the angle after lowering and can be adjusted lower to plant the tires even more so.

The lowering springs lower center of gravity and reduce body roll to keep the car stable in curves.

What tires are you running, OP? my 13 came stock with 19's so I put my aftermarket staggered 18's on it to have the wider tires for grip but now they look to small for the car. Been looking at some new rubber but 285/45's are freakin expensive! Mine's a daily driver rain or shine so I don't want drag radials need something semi practical but still offer some performance rain or shine......

I'm running Sumitomo HTRZ IIs in 255/45r18 and 275/40r18. I have no complaints about the performance. I still spin, but my suspension is far from set up properly. The tread has a nice, aggressive look to it too.

Price on these is affordable:

Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Mustang Tire (275/40-18) 5517780 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping 5517780

Suspension mods

Merican5.0,
Thanks for the explanation. I don't have a wheel hop problem but have put Eibach pro kit springs on. I suppose I should correct the geometry changes from lowering.

I'm running Sumitomo HTRZ IIs in 255/45r18 and 275/40r18. I have no complaints about the performance. I still spin, but my suspension is far from set up properly. The tread has a nice, aggressive look to it too.

Price on these is affordable:

Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Mustang Tire (275/40-18) 5517780 (05-14 All) - Free Shipping 5517780
Yea, those are the same ones I've got on mine! I just got my SR lowering springs last week. Theyre my Christmas present so I'm hoping to put them on after next week. I'm hoping that after the drop they won't look small on there.

Thanks for the explanation. I don't have a wheel hop problem but have put Eibach pro kit springs on. I suppose I should correct the geometry changes from lowering.
I'm not Merican5.0 but your welcome and yes you should correct the geometry. It will drive much better afterwards and it'll be easier on the car as well
