Took delivery on Friday. Initial post updated with drivability impression. Can’t get on it due to the constant rain up here. Basically drives like stock. Can’t even tell it’s built. Very impressive.

Unobtainium exhaust installed. First of all, big thanks to kyleb for the installation! System is quiet. Nice rumble at idle. Silent in cabin up to 2500 rpm. Mild drone at 2500 rpm with partial throttle. Drone is less than the GReddy which really wasnt much. Screams at WOT. This is exactly what I wanted.

Idle with rev and cruise vids below.

(I know someone will ask so the alert light is my TPMS sensors need to be synced. Sold the Advan GTs to kyleb! He is rockin them on his gunmetal DBA and they look better on his car than mine!)

Thanks! I wanted to retain the daily drivability as much as possible. I hit that goal with several key points. First, pick the right turbos. Retain transient response as much as possible. Second, pick the right exhaust. No need to go deaf daily driving this thing. Last but not least, Doug did a great job with the tune. Dialed in idle on 1700 injectors and GSC billet cams. Having the trans touch points at negative two also made a tremendous difference.

Will see what this thing can do on E85 on May 19th.

In preparation for our special day coming up... this beefy driven innovations intercooler with 3.5 inch intakes and short route piping was installed. Due to time constraints, Doug shipped this thing express and Kyle busted his ass late last night until 2am this morning to get this thing installed. Cant thank these guys enough!

ETS intercooler, aluminum got boost piping, 3.5 inch titanium intakes with properly backpurged welds, up for sale soon!

Today Kyle, Doug and I hit the dynojet at Drift Office in Auburn. Both GTRs put down 1K plus 👍👍

My GTR put down 900 whp on E85 on wastegate and 1124 whp at 35 lbs. Overall happy with the numbers. But more importantly, I am floored by how fast this thing is on the street. I could adjust the springs, throw on 3.5 inlets, true 90mm downpipes and Y to chase 1200 whp. But the question then is... Why? Its already stupid fast for the street on wastegate. On kill this thing is brutal... terrifying really. Anyways, vid and pics below.

This car! Wow!
I imagine if you were ever having a bad day you could just go to the garage and instantly have a great day.
That’s incredible.

Thanks! I need a car that will scare the shit out of me to take my mind off work. This definitely does the trick!

After buying a used set of 2015 headlights from a forum member only to see the box beat to shit by UPS, I had to send back to seller and surprise surprise broken tabs... I bit the bullet and bought brand new 2017 headlights off eBay.

The lights come aimed and level from the factory... which was a nice surprise. Light output is dramatically better. Had Doug throw these on in my garage.

If anyone needs a set of 2014 headlights in good shape with xpel ultimate wrap send me a PM!

Thanks! I got interested in the varis fenders after seeing your build! You’re going to love the elites.

My wastegate springs are set a tad conservative. Adjusted to 18 or 19 lbs, (TSM releases them at 21 lbs for built motors). Boost is 35 lbs on kill. I’m talking to Doug about getting those adjusted and throwing on some 3.5” inlets in the very near future.
