SAC's STORY

Hi my name is Anthony, I host the YouTube, Facebook and IG Social Media Pages " Sac Car Scene ". I am the owner of a 2015 Subaru BRZ series.blue . Tell us the story behind your ride. What made you pick this particular one? Where did you find it? My car is 1 of 500 Satin Pearl White Limited Edition Units that was imported to the US Market in 2015. After reading up about the 86 platform, I decided I would start looking online to see if any used ones were for sale. I ran across a listing in Colorado which had a beautiful 2015 series blue with only 3500 miles on it. I decided this would be the car. I made an offer and it was accepted and after having it trailered to California and going through the registration process the car was now mine. I really loved the look of the car especially with the Satin White Pearl Paint job and black wheels. The STi package which was part of the series.blue edition, finished off the custom look. Describe the modifications you've made. Where did you start, what’s the most recent mod and what motivated it? Here is the extensive list of modifications I have made. JDL UEL/Catted Header with titanium ceramic coat Invidia R400 Cat-back Exhaust. Delicious Tuning Mk I Flex Fuel Kit Tuned by Snail Performance Mishimoto External Thermostatic Oil Cooler Kit Mishimoto Cold Air Intake Tube Apexi Drop in Air Filter STi Battery Tie Down STi Rear Wing Gurney Flap STi Fender Garnish APEXi Coilovers -N1 EXV DAMPER Grimmspeed Front Strut Tower Brace Grimmspeed Brake Master Cylinder Brace JDM Rear Diffuser Valenti Sequential Red Lens Tail Lights Diode Dynamic Tail as turn module with LED bulbs Diode Dynamic Yellow Fog Light LEDs Headlight Armor Yellow Fog Lamp Protective Film Hella Euro Horns Function and Form Powder Coated Lugnuts Michilin Pilot Super Sports Motul 300 Gear Lubricant Amsol 0W-30 Motor Oil, Joying Android Head Unit, and Rexpeed Wide Angle Mirrors. The first modification I made to my car was adding a new Apexi Clean Air Filter to it. This is perhaps one of the easiest mods anyone can make to their car. What motivated me to start with this, was after reading through the forums, I found this was one of the easiest mods and could possibly net an increase in performance. Of all the mods you’ve made, which do you think offers the biggest bang for the buck? Of all the mods I have done, IMO the one I noticed to have the most drastic effect was the addition of the Un-Equal Length Header. It helped get rid of the torque dip as well as gave the car the nice boxer rumble. Part of owning a Subaru is getting to enjoy this distinctive sounding motor. How did you go about selecting the specific parts for this build? Any installation tips to share? When I select parts for my car, I typically do some research on which parts have been trialed and tested. I stay away from the cheaper built items, because I do not like to have to replace parts seldom because of poor quality or fit. I also try to plan my builds so I am spending less time under my car, so I will do modifications around oil changes and such so I can lift the car at the same time to do them. As for install tips, I recommend always doing research on the parts, test fit them before installing, allowing the car to warm up and test driving it near your home before going on a long drive this way if you need to re-tighten bolts you can do so, always check for leaks. One more tip, is to always keep your OEM parts and make a list of everything you do as well as keep receipts. The latest modification was replacing the stock mirrors with Rexpeed wide angle mirrors. I recommend this due to the lack of blind spot visibility with the stock mirrors as well as the Rexpeed mirrors being polarized which remove te glare from the sun. What’s been the biggest challenge with this build? One of the biggest challenges modifying my car has been the fact that I live in California. It is nearly impossible to be able to use a lot of the after market parts and still being able to pass smog tests. Most performance modifications to the motor have to be reversed for smog testing. What are you planning next? I have plans to to do some auto cross events in the near future and most likely will be looking to get some specific wheels and stickier tires mounted on my car for those events. For now the car is a joy to drive and I am pleased with what I have done with it. It does get a lot of compliments at the local car events and there is always someone interested in it and what I have done.

I'd be more excited by a $100,000 less over the top car that would be built in larger numbers

[]Gregory Garoppolo

I bet you that your number is way to small. I am thinking that this is more aimed at your P1, LaFerrari, Porsche 918, etc. It has a race bread 5.4L NA engine kicking out 700 BHP, that's way out of supercar territory, and although less power than a P1 et al, it weighs a lot less. And I did a look around, it is aimed at the Senna, I forgot the replaced the P1 already.

[]Hayden Baker

No I'm saying I would care more if it were cheaper. If they used a lightly modded coyote and made something to compete with Lucra I would be more excited. As it sits, I don't care because it's stupid expensive and will mostly never get used

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Yeah, I read that as you would be excited if it cost $100k less, oops!

[]Hayden Baker

Yeah my bad. Commas are important

Awesome cars and awesome shots, as usual!! Great job.

Great cars, you got some awesome shots! I always love the crazy mix of different cars those meets.

Sac Car Scene125 days ago

If you are like me, I tend to pick a day where I will be lifting my car to do multiple jobs on it. Such as Oil change,check and replenish fluid levels, wheel rotation, check exhaust system for rattles or leaks, clean and inspect my coil overs etc. I like doing a day of maintenance rather then constantly having my car on jacks or multiple days of working on my car. Do any of you follow

[]Yves Vds

No choice really, I o ly go home a few times per year. So the date is set a long time in advance.

[]Maggie Johnson

Can’t entirely speak for myself since my car is totaled but my boyfriend and I usually pick a day that we’ll just fix and
go over everything at once...of course after we wash it lol

[]Sebastian Nounou

Yes but not in the way you imagined lol. I plan to work on my car like someone plans a night out. The wife has to be cool with it, baby has to be taken care of, and I need a second car for parts store runs.

I’m fortunate enough to have access to a lift at a shop (my buddy/sponsor) so I get under the car properly when I take it in.

When car stuff is on the calendar it’s usually a day-long afair.

[]Hayden Baker

I try to but it seems that I either run out of time or forget something ha

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I usually get 1 day a weekend to do as much as I can on my cars. Unfortunately, the weather isn't always cooperative so I don't usually get much actual work done. It really sucks lately because it's supposed to rain for like the next week straight and I really want to overhaul my suspension

[]Robert Sixto

I used to try it this way, say Sunday will be when I get X jobs done. However, life generally doesn't work so nice and neatly for me, and I'd often have to delay for other things. Now I generally try to grab any time I can and fill it with even the smallest tasks. Last night I had a spare moment to pull my FC's door handle and unjam the lock. It's still not back installed, but I'll find some time tomorrow hopefully. It's this little "nibbles" method here and there that seems to get the most done for me. The other way would just be too overwhelming and inconvenient, trying to cram multiple big jobs into one long day.

Sac Car Scene126 days ago

I am looking for replacement pads for my Subaru BRZ. Mainly for street driving but occasional track use. I definitely do not want pads that are noisy or emit lots of dust. If anyone can recommend a pad that doesn't squeal or produce dust and still has better bite then the stock brakes, please let me know.

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Yves Vds

Ferodo DS2500 are good pads.

[]Sebastian Nounou

I've run all the EBC's and the only one worth running is the Yellowstuff. If you don't mind the extra squeal go with Hawk HP+

[]Maggie Johnson

Definitely Brimbo!

[]Sebastian Nounou

LOL

[]Hayden Baker

I have run EBC pads on all my cars. The yellow stuff pads worked amazing on my Z when I daily drove it and tracked it. I never had an issue with pad fade or weird behavior on the street. I got over two years of use out of the pads too.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Yup, I run Hawk HPS in the S4 and track and street the car. I think they are a bit dusty but not unreasonably so. You probably put more miles on your car than I do mine though.

[]Sean Wally

I run Hawk HPS pads on my 135i. Decent for street and track use. Not too noisy on the street but they do dust a bit more than I’d like.

[]Sac Car Scene

Should I get Hawk Rotors too?

[]Sebastian Nounou

NEVER buy performance rotors.

I used Hawk HPS when I tracked the 6. They worked fairly well for track and street. Not noisy and I don't recall brake dust being any more than stock.

What are your thought on using wheel spacers? I have wheels that I like that came with my car, they are the black enkei STi wheels, and would hate to get rid of them, but they are only 7" wide and have a recessed look. Would putting wheel spacers such as the hubcentric type, compromise the performance and safety of my vehicle? Or are these safe to use if installed and torqued correctly?

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Yves Vds

If you buy good quality ones,there shouldn't be a problem. You should get hub-centric ones if you want to go a decent amount wider (15+mm).

[]Sebastian Nounou

I hate wheel spacers with a passion. I have 10mm spacers. I hate them also.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

Supposedly they only affect driving tif he change your geometry, which they do if you want more poke. The more you change the geometry, the more dramatic the change in driving characteristics, so bigger spacers alter the ride more. Luckily you can measure for these things and see if you just need small spacers that probably won’t change the dynamics much: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3LeFZsyGRrs

[]Tom Armstrong

I had 10mm spacers on my car for a couple years, the Enkei RPF1’s wouldn’t clear my brakes. Installed the H&R hub centric spacers with ARP studs and never had an issue.

I did notice that the ride became rough with the spacers on, so there is a change to suspension dynamics.

I eventually sold the wheels and bought a set with the proper offset, because I liked the lower offset wheels anyway.

[]Hayden Baker

I've had 25 mm spacers on my car for two years including 15 track days without a single issue. Just make sure you get hubcentric spacers to keep the wheel centered. Pushing the wheel out will slightly change your suspension geometry but 25mm or less and you'll be fine. I recently changed from the bolt on style to extended arp wheel studs which will be a lighter set up and makes me feel even safer

I have reached a point where I would like to do more with my Subaru BRZ, just don't know what direction to go in. There are so many things I would love to add. To be honest, it drives great, and I don't want to do anything to sacrifice the over all performance ie unreliability, but I do want to do some mods that will make it stand out. Anyone have any recommendations?

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Yves Vds

Do some small or easy mods, like installing a short shifter or beefier sway bars. I did those mods and loved them.

[]Hayden Baker

One thing you could play with on the show side of things is a livery. You can get cheap vinyl online and design your own livery. If you change your mind, it's cheap and easily reversed without damage. It coild completely transform the car

[]Maggie Johnson

Me personally I would put a half rear end roll cage, a split rear bumper, lightly tinted tail lights and maybe black out the windows. Just to change the appeal factors🤷🏻‍♀️

[]Sac Car Scene

I can't go darker with the side windows due to California laws, they are not even supposed to have any tint on them and I have them slightly tinted. I always wanted a 4 point roll bar in the back, just haven't gone there yet.

[]Peter J Nielsen

I would reach out to Works Motorsport in Sonoma they have a 50-state legal, CARB-approved supercharger kit for the BRZ that will bring it up to 300hp. A Seibon carbon hood might be a good idea as well. Wheelwell is offering some good discounts on them right now, just reach out to their customer service manager Jennifer at shop@wheelwell.com

[]Gregory Garoppolo

What is the ultimate goal for the car? I get the temptation to tinker for tinkering sales and have to real myself in by reminding myself of what vision or goal I have for he project. Maybe you are done for now and need a new project?

[]Sac Car Scene

To be honest, I had set it up to take out to the track, but since I did around 4 track day weekends with it, I have just been driving it and taking it to cars and coffee events. I would like to add something more to the car tat will make it more of a show car or at least be interesting to look at and talk about.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

You could further both aims by replacing the hood with carbon fiber. Same can be said of redoing parts of the interior, they can offer opportunities for weight reduction, removing noises, customization. I like small details that add up to a larger affect.

[]Sac Car Scene

I like the Carbon hoods, but won't replace the white hood unless I damage it some day. I definitely would like to put some noise dampening material through out the car.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

A little bit of felt tape and small amounts of sound deadening can go a long way! I hear you on the hood. I want one for my B5 S4, simply to help with weight distribution, but I hate the idea of separating the car from its OEM hood.

I have seen so many people spend the extra money on a car that is fully equipped to only upgrade wheels, exhaust, aero kits and such. Wouldn't it be more cost effective to buy the base model and just add your after market parts that you really want?

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Yves Vds

Generally, I would go for the fully loaded version (depending on the price premium).

[]Sammie Robertson

Depends on the car for me. if I was buying a daily driver, in a perfect world I'd like to have a fully loaded option just for comfort, but I dont think it's necessary for most projects since I'd be ripping out most of the "luxury" stuff anyway lol

[]Wilson Oberholzer

It really depends on what the options are. When I bought my wife's 5 series I really wanted it to have heated seats but I found the one we bought for a great deal and just picked up a set of aftermarket seat heaters to install myself.

[]Sebastian Nounou

New I buy the highest performance trim with the fewest options.

Used I look for the most options or for a value/option balance.

[]Joost Van Dien

Base car with the fastest engine. The rest is easy to build up yourself. Otherwise you start on the wrong base possibly. There are a lot of cars where the basemodel has just a completely different suspension with different subframes, take the m3's (e46, e92) the floorplan is vastly different and a lot will not fit without the hacksaw.

I would start with a base modelf of the fastest model.

[]Christopher McDowell EL

Shiiiiiit, just about any and everything is getting modified! except for a few vehicles, none the less stuff is getting touched.

[]Tom Armstrong

I feel like buying a base model is fine for cheap cars you intend to use a commuter or turn into a race car. But for the family car I like having all of the creature comforts, and there is not intent to modify

The 991 is a gorgeous car. Never felt anything for the 997. And curiously, I have started to appreciate the 996 recently. Actually, I'd fancy a 3.6 Carrera 2.

I picked up the Cobb 6 speed shift knob and installed it. My first impression was it was lighter then the stock one, but after installing it and using it, it is much more comfortable in my hand and it shifts more direct. I definitely recommend it. Product Description The COBB Knob is designed to keep those extended shifting sessions exhilarating. The billet aluminum base is anodized in your choice of red or black to help set

[]Tom Armstrong

I’ve never been the type to try many different shift knobs, I like to look at oem sports car knobs and decide on one that matches my shift pattern. Right now I have the stock FRS shift knob, it feels perfect in my hand and never gets hot or cold. Subaru STi’s have almost the exact same knob but with a different pattern. And both have the same shape of this Cobb knob.

I need the shift pattern on my knobs because it’s a trans that was never in a Yaris, and codrivers would never find reverse lol. Otherwise I would have one of these as well

I wouldn't go through the because you'll pay more there than if you find the car through a private seller. The auction creates competition and usually from people with deep pockets. Fun yo watch though

I was watching videos on you tube about adding material such as Dynamat to my car to reduce the amount of road noise and vibration. Has anyone done this, and if so was it worth the time and money? https://www.hotrodhotline.com/dynamat-acoustic-solutions#.WtLrTZch2Hs

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Ernie Szots

My audio guys threw a couple pieces on the inside of my doors when installing my components and I feel it reduced a bit of the ring I'd hear when closing the doors and brought road noise down a touch. Might just be a combination of loads of new bass and placebo effect, but I feel like it made a difference.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

I use it, I think there might be some photos of how I use it in my T-5R gallery. Most people overuse it; the thing is that you don’t need to cover surfaces, the material dampens vibrations, so what you do is find large panels that create boom. Felt tape between interior panels helps reduce squeaks and rattles as well. I can notice a big difference without dumping huge sums of money, but I’ve certainly seen cars with about 200lbs of dynamat, and that’s just plain silly.
