Art of Attack did all the heavy lifting with installing the Rampage Fab RS-450 turbo kit with titanium inlet pipe, PTP turbo blanket, C&R street radiator, Spoon thermostat, Acuity reverse flow hoses, HKS fmic and oil cooler. I also picked up a set of Enkei GTC01rr in 18x10.5 +23 & 18x9.5 +35. Wrapped them in Azenis RT615K+ 265/35 and 235/40. Tune is scheduled for this coming Thursday so until then I have to keep the car out of boost bwahaha. FML.

Just waiting on Falken to get the RT660s in stock for the size that I want to run. These will be the new daily set + track duty until mid next year. I applied 2 coat of Gyeon Q2 Rim ceramic coating. Trying to keep the dust down also why I went with this color. Haha. I'm a lazy enthusiast.

Last "mod" was to ppf the front end and hood. Detail Union in Monrovia, CA took on the task of custom cutting and applying the xpel film. Really well kept shop and staff is on point to make sure you're well taken care of and updated every step of the way.

First track day of the year is going down on the 31st so with the ppf on I can just thrash on the Spoon front and Varis hood with some peace of mind...hahaha.

Your car is a huge inspiration. So clean. Inspired me to go wider wheels but such a headache to get them to fit-ish haha. I think I’ll have to downsize the fronts and run a staggered set up. -5.65 degrees in the front and almost -4 in the rear right now.

Thanks! At least you're bagged so you can toy around with height and fitment a tad easier. I'm sure you learned a ton from this first time experience as well.

Any adjustments needed or issues for the 18x10 +50 regas? I just got my set as well. Waiting to use up my current tires before i swap the wheels out. Also, curious if you're planning on 275/35/18 as well.

for the rears you'll probably only have to bang in behind the flares if you plan to run a 275/35 200tw or lower tire. Also this can be avoided completely if you don't mind adding more negative camber. Fronts might rub on the front tab that we all end up cutting when first pushing fitment. Other than that shouldn't be much of a problem.

I'm running 275/35/18 rt660 all around for the regas. I really wanted 265/35 but they're still stuck at the docks and track day is this Saturday. I'll probably have to run more negative camber than I would like to when I track but it's not like it'll make the day any less fun haha.

Thanks for the info! That's what I was told by ICB that i might run into issues if i were to run a wider tire model at 275/35/18. Since this is my daily and don't plan on any track action, I'm thinking of running PS4s and that should work without any adjustments/issues, at least i'm hoping so lol.

Street of Willow CW hosted by Speed Ventures is a wrap! New personal best of 1:26.2 which I'm very pleased with...just proves there's more time to be shaved at this course due to the extreme amount of negative camber I'm having to run (-5.7) Bwahahaha. The stance boy in me is pleased but we all know that won't help me get quicker even with being able to use more tire in the corner if I just give up on life and say send it. Haha.

Link to my pb lap:

I only did 2 sessions as I felt I wouldn't get any faster on this setup haha. Got a few weeks till Chuckwalla on the 14th to do some minor adjustments but overall I'm super pleased with the new Falken Azenis RT660. I was able to squeeze 12 laps in session 2 with no issues from the tires. Granted even with the extreme camber I did take it easy in the middle and at the end before the flag went out.

Every time I edit more photos with this setup it's growing on me more and more. The "Spoon"-ification is completed for now.
