Default BoyOhBoy's Broke Build

Hi clublexus! I picked up a 2008 Starfire Pearl IS250 with black interior on April 3, 2014. This is my first build ever so I wasn't sure how to approach any of the mods. And I'm from San Jose up in northern California.

Instagram: droo_d

Special thanks to:
Mariano (Sffd103)
Ashton (chase)
Anthony (lizerd)
Peter (yammy) & his homies
Mike (o7iS250)
Zach (zackteee)
Will (willsfp)
Van (vpcutes)
Sam (EZwider)
Timmy Tang from Endless Projects
Alexander from Project Zero
and those on clublexus who helped me get this far with my build.

April 3, 2014



First mod was 6000k low beams and 6000k fogs


Next came the 35% Tint




Got a greddy exhaust but it's a little on the quiet side for my taste. Difference of some metal polish



How she sits like today. Waiting for my coilovers (ordered from SonicsMS) to come. With rates 14k/12k. Also I scraped my Wald trunk spoiler on accident.. LOL. Picking it up again this Friday.







NOTE: **WATCH IN 1080P**
Before exhaust was broken into

**WATCH IN 1080P**
After exhaust was broken into

Does anyone know if the greddy sp/se + invidia midpipe is louder than this?

Good start so far, what are plans for lowering your vehicle?

Yeah thanks a lot! Invidia midpipe or some sorta delete involving muffler/secondary cat/resonator. But leaning towards the midpipe because it keeps the low deep growl and will be easier to replace when turning it back to stock. Funny because I catch people staring at my exhaust, who probably expect it to be super loud but nothing comes out hahah

Get the Megan mid pipe. I've heard that vs. the Invidia and the Megan has a deeper tone rather than rasp.

I would've expected some deeper tone to it. They look great though.

Hmm really? I don't even see any vendors selling Megan midpipes and I heard the invidia one is louder because the 2ndary cats are off. At this point I don't know if I wanna sacrifice a little bit of deep tone for a louder exhaust since greddy is already so quiet. Buy wow Megan midpipes are sure a lot cheaper than invidia'

Thanks, just put on the Wald spoiler but didn't realize the color was off until we drove it out of the garage. Hahaha...

Took forever to take off the OEM spoiler but after some time, I managed to install the wald spoiler. But since I didn't shave the corners, the edges are really throwing me off right now. Anyone else have this problem?
