I noticed this car and spoke to @Lifestyler about some of the details and was really impressed with what I saw. Like many auto enthusiasts, he has little or no time to do things such as a build thread so I thought I'd step in and do some of the busy work for him as this is truly a very interesting car that deserves some attention.
I am the type of person who really appreciates both custom work and people who make cars their own, rather than slapping off the shelf parts onto their car which anyone with money can do. A lot goes unsaid about the time and money spent(See: Wasted) test fitting and experimenting with different options that have never been tried before when doing custom work. On to the details:
Tune by PureBoost
Everything custom is done by @Lifestyler himself(wow!)
Head Work (intake side)
Aquamist meth (cooling)
Stg3 custom LPFP
KW Clubsport coilovers
Toyo R888 (r)
ACF manifold (modified)
6466 Gen2 BB
Custom 3" CP
E46 M3 CSL Rotors Front (custom brackets)
Ferodo DS3000 Brake Pads
One of the specific touches I liked is the custom/modified stock exhaust which retains a switchable take on the dual mode functionality. It is a 3.5" all the way back, and this even includes port matching of the factory manifold pipe diameter. The exhaust valve is toggled using a steering wheel switch:
The other thing I found unique to our platform and interesting was the thermal shielding used on the turbo and manifold. This seems like the fancier version of the wrap/blanket combo without the fire concerns or unsightly appearance.
More to come for sure and hopefully we can get some more info as things progress!
