So, let's begin. I was driving a 2012 G37 xS sedan before, but grew tired of payments after a year, so I sold it and bought this back in July: 104,000 or so on the clock, with no rust. I figure since I've had it for a few months and took care of the necessary maintenance, I'd start a build thread. The mods it came with are: - Invidia V3 Down Pipe - GrimmSpeed Up Pipe - GMS Catback - 17" MB Racing wheels with Hankook Venus V12 performance summer tires - Nitto SN2 winter tires on the OEM wheels - Cobb Accessport - RallyArmor Mudflaps - Upgraded speakers in the front and rear - Some Polk Audio sub in an enclosure tucked in the left side of the trunk (it's clear the install was professionally done and everything sounds great, but the sub makes it pretty difficult to replace my taillights on the left side of the trunk) About a month after I bought it, I had JM Auto replace my timing belt, water pump, thermostat, antifreeze/engine coolant, and change my oil with T6, according to the needed 105,000 mile maintenance. The GrimmSpeed up pipe was also cracked. Two weeks later, I had JM replace it with one from Cobb, using GrimmSpeed gaskets. Definitely made it sound quieter now that the exhaust note isn't coming from the midsection underneath the car anymore. It's currently running the Stage 2 Cobb 91 map. Devin said everything was running perfect, so I'll keep it there for now. A week later, they replaced both the AC and power steering/alternator belts, since the squeal that it started making out of nowhere was horrid. Turns out the power steering belt was the wrong size. Now, the correct one is on and at the correct tension. Last weekend, I had my windows tinted, installed the Kartboy short-throw shifter and put a K&N high-performance air filter in the OEM air box. I also found out that the last owner did not have a cabin air filter in, so I put one in while I was at it. Love the short throw, for sure. I don't like the STI knob too much, but it'll work until my Anarchy Motive Titan arrives. I'll show comparison pictures in the next post down. This weekend will entail putting the Kartboy bushings in. The job seemed like a pain from what I read at first, but I'm up to giving it a shot. More to come. I'll be reserving a few posts after this with TBD content.
