Nice to know that there are other lower mileage gtis on here. However I have to be honest I'm just as impressed when I read about higher mileage ones 😁.

Recorded clips of a cold start and some revs this afternoon. Loving the exhaust setup . Stock dp and neuspeeed catback was nice. However adding the downpipe definitely made it better. Quiet when in D mode and normal driving, loud enough in manual to put a smile on my face.

Plan is to get some drive by shots at some point.

But for now here are some revs

I installed the Brembo GT BBK a while back and wound up needing spacers. The smallest spacers you can buy that are hub centric are 10mm. The new tires are 235/40/18 and with the spacer I'm getting a bit of a rub under high cornering loads. I thought it over for a day or two and realized that the wheels have a 72.6mm bore. I ordered a set of 3mm spacers with a 66.6mm bore. Then I turned a set of hub rings that have a 72.6mm OD, a 57.4mm bore and have a step on the back that is 66.6mm to match the spacers. This will buy 7mm of clearance. I think that will be enough to clear the new tires.

After 6 months of sitting in the garage, finally got my ported and polished unitronic K04 installed along with IE K04 file. Did a few pulls here and there to get a feel for it and I'm loving it.
Next week ill be installing my koni yellows with DG springs.
I also picked up a set of konig hypergrams 17x8 to replace my VMR v701(225/40/18 indy 500). Thinking about going with Michelin Pilot sport AS3+

thank, im debating if I should get it powder coated one wheel is curbed and the others have small imperfections. Not sure if its worth $450 to get them powered coated of maybe just puck up one single wheel.
Yes, the reviews are great and Costco has a pretty good promotion on them right now. About 550 out the door

Ruben at Socal porting. He's highly recommend. And he was only 10 mins from my house in Neuvo,CA

Man I'm dying to go k04. Congrats!!!

Question.. if you live in Cali any reason you're not going full summer tires but choosing all seasons? Don't get me wrong, I loved my AS3+ but after driving my buddies '13 stock suspension on sticky Indy 500's on stock rims I'm getting a set.

mostly because of a longer thread life and smoother ride. Dont get me wrong i loved the indy 500, but wet performance is subpar. Tbh im still deciding the general gmax rs has caught my attention. It has better wet performance slightly less grip than the indy and slightly better thread wear 340 vs 360

I have the 17” General Gmax Rs and they are great for the price. I really enjoy them.

I've got some serious miles on Yokohama Advan Sports...they've really impressed in all conditions, including the track.
Second only to Continental DWS but the DWS didn't last as long.

Nice wheels. I have PS A/S 3+ on my car with a stage 1 tune. I can get wheel spin in 1st and second. I think you'll be smoking them. You might want to step up to the PS4S.
