This will be my build thread for my 14 OW ST3. Picked it up on 1/9/2017 with 10K miles and in pristine shape.

Plan on all the basic bolt ons and a tune.

Day 1.

Then the shopping began... and it all came in while I was in Tokyo last week. Now I have to take a day off on Friday to work on it over the weekend.

Arrived on Saturday but didnt get to them till today. I know hydrographics isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I like the "look". Not trying to pass it off as "real carbon fiber" just like when folks do flames or skulls.... anyway... @brian60 - there ya go buddy...pics

Coolant tank install this weekend. Yes it has a spot on the side where I can see the level.

I must say, I wish I had the income right now to just buy EVERYTHING at once for my car hahaha. Too busy recovering from xmas and paying the car off early. Pretty awesome! You will have a night and day difference when you push the go lever after getting all that installed and tune loaded.

What'd it put down for the baseline run?

Car put down 237 on the dyno. I don't put too much stock in the number per say, Its just a start point to show me a gain. I'm sure if I put it on 5 other dyno's I'd get 5 other numbers. It was nice to see though so I can measure the improvement.

Not the norm for me either but I caught some luck when I sold my other car outright and it was already paid off. I am thankful for that, trust me.

Looking forward to this thread and your honest thoughts on the MBRP system. Maybe a review on it after 200 hundred miles or so. I have been looking at it but don't want something that will drone in the 65-80mph range. Congrats on the new to you ride and the parts!

Thanks man, much appreciated.

I'll definitely keep you posted on the MBRP system. If it has drone, its coming off. One of the reasons I'm keeping the stock set up. I know it has to be cut, but It can be reused with some work if need be. I'be heard good and a few not so good, so we will see.

I've developed a personal relationship with Mike, my UPS guy. He commonly talks to me and BS's for 10-15 minutes with me about the neighbors hate fence, the weather, sports, the car parts I order, my car, etc. He said the other week when he dropped off my downpipe "I'm sure I'll be back tomorrow" and I let him know he won't see me until roughly Thursday when I got my cleaning supplies haha.

Yeah my old UPS guy was like that too, hell he'd come in and grab a bottled water out of the fridge. LOL Dude was super cool. He got a new route though, as he put it...."in the hood, but it pays him more."
