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. The Opelite Optics headliner had a space theme with led shooting stars that lit up the roof of the BRZ, adding a nice bit of style to the interior.

Now that the Civic is finally up and running, we need to do some modifications to make sure it can drive safely. Mickey and Rickie start off today's episode of throtl by getting some custom brake lines installed on the car. Crown Performance made the perfect brake lines for our project, making the install quick and easy. 

While Mickey and Rickie installed the brake lines, Quinn did a bolt check on the Civic's suspension. This was an important step to take to ensure that all the suspension components are torqued down, allowing us to safely drive the car. 

The FREK is finally able to roll and stop on its own! The next thing to do is complete the exhaust system. Unfortunately, most of our main exhaust systems are stuck at the port and won't arrive at the shop for a while. However, we want to get the car on the dyno ASAP, so Mickey and the boys installed a temporary exhaust system on the car. Check it out for yourself in the video below!
