First exhaust I installed was the Tomei Expreme Ti but it was way to loud for my neighborhood


Ended up decided on the Nameless axle back with mufflers along with the stock midpipe

Much better


Wasn't really a fan of the stock wheels, they look like something off a Camry imo.




Future upgrades will be full suspension swap and sway bars

Yeah for my front speakers I went with Focals
https://www.focal.com/en/car-audio/c...kits/ps-165-fx

The sub box you can find here and they will tailor it to whatever sub you want to run. I did have to clock my sub to make it fit and it was still really tight. I wasn't 100% please with the fitment but it seems to be doing ok.

Did you have the Harmon Kardon sound system? I'm wondering if it's worth getting that package or if you're better off saving the money for the aftermarket system.

How's the nameless with stock midpipe? Any constant low frequency noise during cruise speeds, anything dronelike? subjective loudness? Biggest problem areas I see are usually around 2500rpm in 6th up a hill which is right around speed limits on highway here.

Yeah man here's the actual mount part. This kit mounts to the factory mounting points on the roof rails. Additionally you need the thule cross bars.

For me it's perfect, super subtle sound that is very deep. It has virtually no drone when highway cruising that I can detect and I usually go 65mph on my drive to work. I'm planning on making a video of it so you guys can hear it. I'll post the Youtube link once I do.

Howzit everybody, doing some simple mods this week. Got windows tinted last week and today installed the rain visors, compliments of Subispeed. Hope everyone is staying sane.

Howzit gang, doing more work on the Suby today installing the carbon fiber driveshaft from DSS. Real ez install only took about 30 minutes and the car is much more drive-able now. Peace.

Installed some Group N bits today, everything except the motor mounts. Also the Kartboy shifter bushings. Nice crisp shifting now, the only downside I now get a high pitched whine in 2nd gear...was not expecting that.


Put the Advan centercaps on also...with the supplied model airplane glue

Did you have to do any drilling for the Carbon Fiber Driveshaft? Was it as simple as dropping out the stock one and replacing it with the one from DSS?

I did not have to drill anything. Install was super easy just dropped out the old one and put the new one in, only had to disconnect the downpipe/midpipe connection and unbolt the heatshield.
