This car will be a non-competitive autocrossing monster (because screw ASP class...), and still will be my daily driver. I will find things that are not performing upto spec of what I'm trying to accomplish and I will then change them out even if I have to design from scratch. My daily will also hopefully be reliable. I'm building this car for superior handling, not for a certain "power number" that most seem to want to accomplish. If the car doesn't have the acceleration I want, I'll start swapping performance parts, but right now I think I barely get to use the horsepower it has. The main goal of the car will be an autocross and daily, and will see some track time whenever I get the spirit and funds upto par to go see what I can do on the track.
I've had a lot of help building the car along the way from various companies (not quite sponsors), and it's only going to get better as the year goes on.

A big thanks to all of you who answered my thousands of questions, especially Justin @ JSCSpeed for giving me a lot of real life driving data on the parts he has on his car.
Bought my 2015 in June/July (not sure exact date anymore), has 4000+ miles on it (when I posted) and climbing (it's at 14k now in April). I love this car and love driving it. I've started to autocross for the first time and love every bit of that too. Looking to maximize my time autocrossing, keep my daily driver a solid/reliable car, and maybe get a little frisky and add some more power to those wheels. Trying to learn everything I can about the fa20dit before I add anything.
This car has been a DD/autocross car. And I've been loving every minute of it. I also have an 03 miata, and an 04 cbr600.

Reason for tuning:
Tune from PhatBotti tuning. Cobb's OTS tune gives me a lot of knock in 2nd, and I can't have that on the AX course. I've already contacted them a bunch about it...mostly fed up. The 3rd gear pulls look great, but the 2nd pulls need a lot of work.
