Ruby Red Build Thread

So I have a 2014 Ruby Red SE hatchback with the DCT and 201A appearance package. I started modding with 350 miles on the clock and I plan on doing many mods to my car as funds become available. I'm going to be taking my time and i'll update this thread as new mods go on.

First was the green filter drop w/snorkel delete. Really liking this so far. Gave a little low end power and a nice growl under the hood when I accelerate.

Then I added some rokblokz mud flaps.

And I did a 15 % tint all the way around.

fswerks rear motor mount insert that goes into the stock rear motor mount. 2-2-15. This was a great mod. For $13 shipped, I don't think there is anything better. Eliminated wheel hop with out driving you nuts at idle.



Steeda stubby antenna. 2-7-15 13,300 miles



2-6-15 13,300 miles

Steeda rear sway bar install.





Love the sway bar. First words into my head going around a turn were smooth and planted. It's crazy how much more natural it feels corning hard. Really great mod.

2-12-15 13,333 miles

Got my SCT X4 today. Now just waiting for the base tune so i can get this going!



Base tune installed and i've done a few data logging sesions. Tune is coming a long nicely. 2-17-15 13600 miles.

So my plan for the car has changed a bit over the last year of owning it. I realize now that what I really want to do to it is make it the best daily driver i can. I'm keeping a running list above of all current mods. This will be a list of future mods.

So i'm done with mods for a little while as i go into money saving mode. I want to save up for suspension next.

Going to do H&R Coilovers hopefully but depending on funds I may go with some handling package struts/shocks and some Eibach or H&R springs.

Then i want new headlights, which i'm thinking the spyder st3 projector headlights

Then I want a 2.5 inch exhaust, custom, put on.

Possibly a header.

Cossmitically I want to add the 3d carbon spoiler and the 3d carbon body kit.

All i've ever owned is Hatchbacks! I love the look of a hatch. Thanks slickwilly, they are the factory wheels but i'm really liking them too. It's nice it came with decent wheels, it will save money for other stuff!

Looking great! Mods will probably move this to the build section at some point.

Thanks Jburks. Hey do you think the snorkle delete is necessary with the filter addition?

Well dyn085 i blieve was the one who did a dyno test with and with out the snorkle delete and showed that if you are going to do a drop in filter then it is esential for an hp gains. if you still have the factory air filter then it wont do anything and same if you have a full cold air intake as the filter is already in the open but he showed it is esential for drop in filters.
