Well guys, here's the car, as it'll be on pause for now and going away to storage.
I'm shipping off next week on tuesday.

Got the authentic Alteza Grill, along with the Vertex front, and side skirts. I also picked up an AIT L-Tuned rear bumper which will get painted when I'm back home.

What brand rotors and pads are those, and how are they holding up with hard/hot stops?

The rotors are from RotorWorks. Slotted and drilled, and the pads are posiquiet ceramic brake pad. They're holding up very well with the stops and I definitely recommend them to anyone.

On top of that, I only paid $173 for the whole kit.

Been a while since I've been on but I'm back.

Update:

Military is treating and paying me well. I got engaged. And my turbo parts are all coming in ! I'll post up some updated pictures tomorrow, but so far only a few things have changed.

Wheels are now black, side skirts are painted, 3" straight pipe exhaust, got a new battery, and just waiting to install my turbo once everything gets here!

Update:

I recently purchased the XS Power Turbo kit, and so far, customer service has been great. I really contemplated on what kit to run, or whether or not I should have pieced together my own kit. Well, after much talk with Rich from XSPower, I decided to give the kit a shot and use that as a starting point. I pieced together other parts from this kit, and I'm just waiting on a few more parts to come in this week before I install it this weekend. Been waiting really long to boost the IS, so I'm glad the fun beings now.

Here's a list of the parts I'll be running. Not going too crazy on boost. Just something more fun, until I can rebuild everything else.

AEM Wideband AFR Gauge
Autometer Boost Gauge
Greddy Emanage Ultimate
CX Racing FMIC Kit
Walbro GSS342 255LPH Fuel Pump
Fuel Pressure Regulator
330cc or 440cc Top Speed High Impedance Fuel Injectors
Timing Belt Kit
BM Racing Transmission Cooler
GloShift Trans Temp Gauge
Triple Gauge Pod
Glow Shift Oil Temp Gauge
Oil Pressure Gauge
T4 67mm Turbo
3” V-Band Clamp
Intake
Downpipe
44mm Wastegate
Greddy Turbo Timer
BOV BLITZ Dual-Drive BOV
Electronic Boost Controller (EBC)
Gaskets
Oil Lines
