Howdy everyone, I'm a proud owner of a 2018 EGTS who spent the last 5 months modding & tuning this amazing vehicle. I've finally reached a point where I could look back and reflect on the entire process, and figured I'd share the adventure with the community as well. Before I get started, here are the full list of all the mods done.
Engine: Tork 3.5" Big Gulp Intake, Tork 3" Downpipe, Tork IC Resonator Pipe, SR 63mm Big Bore Throttle Body, JunBL Axle-Back Exhaust
Suspension: Neotech Front +3mm/Rear +5mm Stabilizer Bars, HSD Type FT Monotube Coilovers
Others: SYSTEM Blow-Off Valve Conversion Kit, SR Noise Suppression Red Molding Kit, Chrome Door Handle Overlays, Tork Dual Oil-Catch Can, HKS M40XL Iridium Plugs, Tork Electronic Boost Control Solenoid.
First mods I've done were the Tork's Big Gulp Intake, Dual Oil-Catch Cans, and SYSTEM Blow-off Valve.
Keep in mind that Tork's intake does not have any inlets for breather hose, as well as diverter valve hose. Breather hose will connect instead to the dual oil-catch can, and diverter valve was completely removed then replaced with SYSTEM blow-off valve. Without BOV, you will end up with a diverter valve hose that will vent directly to the atmosphere, which isn't recommended.
While installing these, I upgraded the throttle body with Shark Racing's Big Bole Throttle Body (58mm to 63mm) and installed JunBL's axle-back exhaust after welding the pipes back together (came in multiple pieces from Korea to save shipping).
Next, installed Tork's 3" downpipe along with a straight pipe replacement for intercooler resonator.
Moving on to suspension upgrades. The stock tires were inadequate in all measures and immediately swapped out with the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+. Also, installed both front and rear Neotech Stabilizer bars (Front +3mm / Rear +5mm) and HSD monotube coilovers.
Vehicle dropped to 1 finger gap length all around.
Applied red noise suppression molding all around the trims. Fantastic reduction in external/wind noises.
M40XL spark plugs, Tork's electronic boost control solenoid, and port flash bundle kit for Stage 0+ tuning.
All these modifications were to prepare for Tork's stage 0+ tuning, which were completed last week after months of planning. I have dyno scheduled in two weeks to get us hard numbers, but I can assure everyone that this vehicle is an absolute beast in both power and handling. I mainly post all my updates in another forum, so you might not see more from me here but feel free to ask me for any questions regarding the modding & tuning process and I will do my best to get back to you.
