Default BC Racing BR Series Coilovers

Coilovers are on and preliminary ride height is set! I did the install at home with a second set of hands, it went relatively smooth and took about 6 hours to complete. I will wait for everything to settle, fine tune the ride height and then get the alignment done. The car drives amazing now, stays very flat in corners and the ride is great. Here are a few photos before I get a chance to do a full photoshoot later this week:

Looks great! You've dialed in pretty much perfect height.

What coilovers did you end up going with?

Thank you! I went with BC Racing BR Series. Now that I have had an opportunity to get some miles on them I can report that they ride amazing and the car stays flat! For dampening I went with 16 clicks in the rear (soft to hard) and 17 clicks in the front (soft to hard) based on info in other threads on the BC's, I am super happy with this setup.

Default Exhaust | Gundo Hack + Martian Mod (Center Bypass)

On Wednesday I had the Gundo mod done to the side mufflers and also bypassed the center muffler. Originally I wanted the NHP x-pipe but it has been on backorder for a while, a friend who did the fabrication work suggested that we cut open the factory center muffler and seal the perforated pipes inside it. Since I wasn't going to have a use for the original center muffler after an x-pipe install I decided to give it a shot, if it did not sound good I would just wait for the NHP to become available or go with another option. After installing I was very pleased with the sound and decided to keep this as the center bypass, it sounds great!!! I also love the fact that from behind the exhaust appears stock aside from the tips and titanium paint, and everything fits just like factory!

Here are few photos of the modification and final result after high-temp paint:

What did You get to blacken the "diffusor" panel between the exhaust pipes?
