This thread has some of the best high class DIY fabrication I've seen in a long time. Looking forward to the future updates you have in-stored

Got everything assembled and on the car...


Internals one side perforated one side straight thru


Fiberglass packing


carbon shells in place


Both mufflers assembled


Mufflers piping painted black welded to the rear muffler section


and installed on the car





I will try to get some sound clips this week, exhaust sound level is pretty much where I wanted it to be no drone inside the cab kinda quiet by my standards lol, but that why I have provisions to bypass the mufflers because its sounds outrageously insane that way and I love it...

Just finished a 1000 mile drive out to charlotte NC with no issues and other than high fuel consumption, and some tire rubbing in the rear I had the car packed heavy as I am relocating for a job. If your in the area and want to get in touch just let me know. My fabrication will slow down a little as I get settled in but will pick back up before too long.

If you offer your fab skills to this community you'll have more work than you can handle. You'll get my business.

Those carbon fiber parts look insanely cool; I love em. Can't wait to see that manifold finished!!!

Would you have the resources to produce more of these parts if you wanted to? Some of the other EZ30 guys on here might really want these. I know I do, but I can't afford them right now; college is stripping me dry and my manual swap hasn't even gotten the green light yet haha.

Crazy, crazy, crazy.


Now, I do have to add that if you are going to sell the parts here that you will need to become a registered vendor.

That said, damn.

























Damn.

great work. I have access to a machine shop also, and would be VERY interested in working with you to get that manifold made.

I am planning an interesting h6 swap in the near future.

Finally feel like I am getting a little bit settled here in charlotte, Will be working on the runner designs tonight, I would like them to be carbon, but using the same mold technique as the plenum won't work very well. since they are a bit smaller and I make money now that I have a job i might just 3d print them, ideally 3d printed water soluble molds would make a good final version.

I also need to schedule sometime to go talk to a company here called motion lab tuning. I have everything ready to get some baseline custom ecu tunes and see what would be needed for the ITB set up and eventually going to a speed density tune.

let me know if you have any questions, besides getting back to work on my current projects I am getting an itch and want to build up a H6 motor, hi-compression, hi-rev, something more of a dedicated track motor, (thinking along the lines of what porsche does with there gt3 rs and rsr engines, just 3 liter displacement instead of 4.) I know NA hi power tuning is expensive, but there is something about this motor that is just incredible and a NA build is part of my future 2-3 year BRZ plans

Check out 42 Autosports as well, they are up in Concord. I like them a little more for the custom work especially 3.0 and custom swaps. You wont be disappointed

pm sent so I dont clog your build page, but I am really interested in those adapters.
I am pretty sure I could get some made and then flow test them to get some actual numbers.

So I stumbled across this today, while not doing much at school. Well, I'm impressed, any chance i could get an apprenticeship? This is phenomenal work, very much appreciated among the forester owners as well! Keep us posted.

Very impressive!

Nice to see CNC'd parts here.

I've been machining for 7 years now and will be making my own car parts soon.

So not too much going on right now without access to all the fun tools and such, but put this together the other day…



Now before anyone goes off on the "cold" air intake being bit he hot engine bay, this was not done with the intention of more hp or putting the filter in a location that would get it away from the engine bay temps. I did this to modify modify the sound of the vehicle I want to get more of the induction howl. Which it did quite nicely, go full throttle and the sound of the intake resonance and exhaust is a great combo…
