Hello, this is my FR-S, and her name is Ari :) Instagram: @86.Arii 10/10/19 Time is all it takes 10/17/19 For performance, I have the intake and pulleys, but I want to get it tuned. I also want some headers first, so then when I tune, I can just go ahead and get more power out of it. I'm just debating if I wanna buy an OFT or go e85 and have a 91 tune with delicious tuning... As for aesthetics, I wanna work on the exterior over the summer, and for right now, slowly change the interior. But, we'll see what the future has planned out for us. 10/25/19 Carbon Fiber front splitter was installed. First time drilling into carbon fiber and is just the thought that scares you, but once you do it, it’s done. Front splitter rods are gonna be installed another day. 11/04/19 Attached the front splitter rods to the holes where the license plate would be. 12/30/19 I got my car back from the shop (12/18-12/30). Fixed scratch on widebody. Aligned bumper. C Light Installed and it’s BRIGHT. Pain (Naruto) License Plate Frame Installed from a person on Instagram who opens her own shopping website with stickers, clothing, peekers, even skateboards lol but like of stuff like naruto, demon slayer, and more. She opens the shop around once a month for 3 hours only. I missed it the first time but got it the second lol. Her shop is @hello_senpai on Instagram. Installing the frame was easy, but removing the old one wasn't. The screws were being annoying to take out since they are self-made into the carbon fiber. But power tools are a blessing :) Temporary Dash Cam is now setup. 01/06/20 Updating my car specs. As for the MPG, it’s just the Avg my cluster says. The 0-60 and Mile time, I still have to test that when I have time to have a base number (as base as it can be at least). 01/21/20 I started installing the twinkle starlight headliner 5 days ago. Taking off the headliner was pretty easy. Making the holes, putting the starlight, gluing, and trimming was very tedious but not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Took around 2-3 hours total for that part. Putting the headliner in the car was easy, and also put some padding just in case of vibration. The only struggle was to find a way to get the strands to go down the rear passenger pillar, into the trunk. It’s beautiful. 04/21/20 I got my OpenFlash Tablet in the mail and set up the tunes / original file on it. I’m gonna drain my tank and go Stage 2+ with e85 on stock headers. Hoping to get headers soon tho to get rid of that torque dip. My exhaust set up is my next goal. 04/26/20 Went on E85 and waiting/reading the tablet on when to switch was a pretty weird but fast change. Easy process. So far, you can hear the engine more and it sounds really nice. Feels like the car is more ready to go and can feel that extra power pull at the top. Butt dyno approves. 05/07/20 Got some custom carbon fiber work (no cover) done by @ctrends2 (Instagram) for my pulley cover and the fuse box cover. They came out amazing and happy with the work, ready to do more work with him. 05/26/20 Joined Car Group “Team Vicious” Find us on IG: @_TeamVicious_ 06/14/20 Recorded Times and Decibel levels of my exhaust. I did 0-60, 40-60, and more noise test. (On Stage 1) Purchases Invidia N1 Catback Exhaust, and Injen EL Headers. 06/21/20 Installed Red Spyder Tail Lights and also bought a flex-fuel kit w/ injectors. 06/28/20 Installed Invidia N1 Catback exhaust, then installed Injen Headers. Played around with a pop tune and it gurgles but don’t think I can spit flames. Happy with finally being loud. 07/11/20 The FR-S bumper gap problem... I was able to custom mount it so it won’t have the problem of popping out now. Side markers replaced with a tinted ones. The fender lining is off. The splitter is off and needs the rubber trim to be replaced, and going to custom chassis mount it soon. 07/19/20 Custom Chassis Mounted the APR Splitter. Lowered the back by half an inch. Installed Fog Lights harness and button. 8/12/20 Switched my tail lights to these retrofit BMW M4 Style. I have been in love but wonder how non-smoked look... 9/12/20 Lol exactly a month apart... I didn’t add a new mod this time tho, I just started experimenting with my OpenFlash Tablet and editing the tunes. Learned overnight from forums and YouTube. I tested pops yesterday and an improved non pop tune today. I just need to replace my cold air intake filter and learn how to edit the MAF (so the car can run smoother while idling) 9/21/20 Took out and replaced the 4th brake light. Was an easy install but had to do some rewiring... The booty looks complete 10/10/20 Creates new Instagram @86.Arii because the old (86Arii) I think got hacked and deleted... Can’t stop the process :) 10/16/20 Upgraded the Grams Performance 72MM Throttle Body... Also, have the upgraded bypass copper line. I wonder if what kind of difference this makes when I MAF scale the tune... 11/28/20 I put my car on jack stands a while ago... All wheels are polished but before I put them back on the car, decided to fix the bumper gap once and for all. Still waiting on parts tho... lol OLM which I thought were VLAND headlights were also installed today. Since I have an FR-S, I had the pleasure of wiring them in :) 12/04/20 Switched the GCS turn signals on, and they have completed the front end. Got the bumper corner supports, after waiting for like a month, the bumper should be back on tomorrow! 12/05/20 Custom mounted the front bumper so the fitment sits more flush. That was a nightmare. The wheels are back on. Now just need to do some fender lining trimming. 01/17/21 Installed a carbon fiber strut tower bar, and a master brake cylinder. Should make canyon runs more fun 02/14/21 Took apart the back just to delete the rear seatbelts. Also managed to get the front ones out. Took out the stock seats and put Braum Elite X Seats, and also installed the 5 point Braum harness.
