Surprising our SUBSCRIBER with his DREAM CAR BUILD! (Full Transformation): 2014 Subaru BRZ

  Alex was recently announced as the winner for throtl Dream Build #2! As the winner of #throtldreambuild2, Alex got his car shipped out to San Diego California to be fully modified by the throtl team. When Alex's car arrived, it was a mostly-stock 2014 Subaru BRZ. As soon as the car arrived at the throtl headquarters, the team immediately got to work on some modifications. Alex's car got the works with some new interior, exterior, and performance-based modifications. Interior Modifications For the interior of the BRZ, we installed a custom black suede headliner, throtl shift knob, and a new audio system from OEM Audio+. The OEM Audio+ system sounds significantly better than the factory audio system. This made it way more enjoyable to listen to music in the BRZ.

Now that the Eclipse is back from SEMA 2021, we are ready to take the next steps on the build. Quinn starts off today's episode of throtl by removing the valve cover on the Eclipse and re-torquing the ARP head studs. It is common practice to re-torque ARP head studs after a few heat cycles of the engine. Doing so will ensure a properly seated head gasket and help prevent any problems in the future. After re-torquing the head studs, Quinn does a quick oil change to replace the break-in oil with some fresh engine oil.

Next, Evan brings the car outside to do a full walk-around, providing all the details of all the modifications we made to the Eclipse. After doing the walk around, Evan starts up the Eclipse and gives it some revs for you to hear! Check it out for yourself in the video below!

There is a lot of stuff done to the Eclipse, but we aren't done yet! Stay tuned for the next Eclipse videos because we still need to get it dyno-tuned and take it to the track.
