Here it is when I purchased it,

And now it looks like this,

It didn't take long for the mod bug to take over. First upgrade was Berk Technology HFC (high flow catalytic) and CBE (catalytic back exhaust).

I did i write-up for the exhaust with plenty of pictures. You can read it here,
My Berk Technology HFC and CBE experience

Next Mod was Swift springs. I installed them near the end of October 2011 just before I put the car into storage. Here's how it looks after the Swift springs were installed,

The next day I drove to SG Motorsports and had them tune the car with UpRev and also fix up my alignment. Here are the results,

Alignment by J M Gale, on Flickr

While the car was in storage I installed a TWM short shifter and TWM leather shifter boot. I did a DIY for the install. Tons of good pictures here,

DIY - TWM short shifter leather shifter boot

Next I ordered a set of Carbon B-pillars from EVO-R. They arrived with a manufactured defect and this began my run of poor customer service with various supporting vendors from this forum. There was zero communication from EVO-R and I needed to file a claim through PayPal. I did eventually get a refund, less the cost of shipping the parts back.

Unfortunately, this defect would not be hidden by and trim and would be visible 100% of the time. This is what the issue was,

Next mod while in storage was Whiteline Front and Rear swaybars with rear end links.

Front,

Rear,

When spring finally came (early 2012) I did an extensive restorative detail including full paint correction and applying high heat wax to the brake calipers and wheels. Full write-up with lots of pictures here,

Thanks guys! I have a bunch of pictures to add. I'm in the middle of moulding my Mine's lip into my bumper and shaving/filling the front emblem. Also, I will be doing a full DIY of the Boosted Performance turbo kit install... should be a fun winter

Ah GaleForce is going boost! Nice!

Great build...and hey, car storage time means install time, so not bad when you have the space you do.

Default South Bend stage 3 clutch

Here is the clutch pictures. I called up Joe at ZSpeed Performance I told him my estimated future HP and Torque numbers (after the turbo install) and asked what he recommended.

This is what we came up with,
  • South Bend Stage 3 Daily
  • South Bend DXD flywheel
  • ZSpeed heavy duty CSC
  • Motul fluids

It's really obvious, left is Stock, right is South Bend

The guys at AMS in Toronto hooked me up with the install.
