Talking XENA - Phantom Black 2014 Evolution GSR (400awhp Goal)

Hey everybody,

This is my build thread for my 2014 GSR. Her name is Xena, and the goal is 400awhp. Below is my parts list, and below that are photos of my progress.

Under the Hood
  • ETS Intake
  • ETS Gold FMIC
  • ETS UICP
  • J2 Catback
  • MAP 02 External Dump Downpipe
  • MAP Test Pipe
  • Kelford 214-B Cams
  • GSC Valve Springs
  • ID1000 Injectors
  • Walbro 450 Fuel Pump (E85)
  • Turbosmart BOV
  • Password:JDM Carbon Kevlar Engine Kit

Drivetrain
  • Competition Stage 2 Clutch Kit
  • ShepTrans Built Transfer Case (Stage 2)

Wheels/Tires/Suspension
  • Nitto NT555 275/40ZR18
  • Nitto NT555 White Lettering Kit
  • Enkei RPF1 18x10.5 ET15 SBC Finish
  • Fortune Auto 500 Series Coilovers
  • Blackworks Gold Lug Nuts
  • Michelin Pilot Sport 3 (On stock wheels)
  • Rota G-Force 18x9.5 et15 (Hyper Black)

Interior
  • JCSPods Triple A-Pillar Pod
  • AEM X-Series Boost Gauge
  • AEM X-Series Wideband UEGO A/F
  • AEM X-Series Oil Pressure
  • Billetworkz Shift Knob
  • Carbon Fiber Dashboard Trim

Exterior
  • JUN Style Lip
  • Varis Canards
  • Rexpeed Painted Vortex Generator
  • Euro Style LED Tails
  • Retrofitted Projector Headlights (RGB Demon Eyes)
  • CF Rear Diffuser
  • Mugen Style Window Visors
  • Custom JDM License Plate (XENA-14)
  • 5% tint on top of 50% tint, 35% tint on the windshield

"Down the Road" Goals
  • Seibon Carbon Fiber Hood
  • Seibon Carbon Fiber Duckbill
  • APR Formula GT3 Mirrors
  • MHI 18K Turbo

Update #6: 335awhp—DP, TP, Tune, Lip, Wheels, Kevlar
A lot has happened recently. I made 335awhp shootout numbers at DB Performance. Shane tuned.


Update #5: Stupidly Dark Tint
So I did 5% film on top of 50% film on all of the windows, and did 35% on the entire windshield. I think it turned out awesome.



Update #5: AEM X-Series Gauges & JCSPods Triple A-Pillar Pod
Just got back from MAP (one of the perks of being a Minnesota local), with my AEM X-Series gauges. Quality feels awesome, and they look great. I ordered my JCSPods pillar, so hopefully it should be here in a couple weeks. I'll post an update when it gets in, and I'll be sure to upload some more photos.

Update #4: Intake/BOV
Got my ETS Intake, and Turbosmart BOV. Just put them in, and I'm loving them. The butt dyno is happy, and they sound amazing. A little bit of playing around and I got the BOV perfectly adjusted. Next I'm going to get my AEM X-Series gauges and JCS triple a-pillar pod.

Update #3: ShepTrans Built Transfer Case (Stage 2)
Sheptrans came built my transfer case in just a week. It will hold 900hp, at their "Stage 2" tier. Super happy with the results, and the best customer service I've had with a company. No photos of the t-case unfortunately

Update #2: #CarGuy Mods
Black emblem on front, Japanese license plate, and debadged the rear. Such car guy.



Update #1: Evo Stuff
Purchased the car. Exhaust and lowering springs already on it. Removing both of those.

Be careful with that aem pump. Mine failed after about 1500 miles of e85.

Looks great and I'm sure you'll hit your 400 awhp mark quite easy with those mods.

Good luck!

No need for a LICP?

Looks great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Bump for a fellow Minnesotan!

Looks like you're off to a good start. You would be able to get damn close to 400whp with basic bolt ons and e85 on a Dynojet without the turbo upgrade or cams but if you're going for Mustang numbers then you're gonna need them.

Have you decided on who you're going to have tune the car?

Not at this point. I've looked into the full Cobb kit though.
