If you’re on Nasioc, it is very likely that you’ve come across the name “blakkboxer.” Eric has been on the forums for quite some time now and has been pretty active especially on the “Bugeye Thread.”

Eric has always been a fan of the Black and Gold color combo and just by looking at the pictures of his car, we can see why. Check out his mod list below too.

Eric’s Auto-X Prepped BRZ on 17×9 Grids in White

Owner: Eric
Car: 2013 Subaru BRZ Premium
Wheels: 17×9 Rota Grid - White (5×100/e42/73)
Tires: 245/40/17 Dunlop Z1 Star Spec
Suspension: KW Variant 3 Coilovers

Right after breaking in the BRZ, Eric tried out the tires that came with the car and he figured that it wasn’t grippy enough for his needs. Eric then ordered 17×9 +42 Grids wrapped in 245/40/17 Dunlop Z1 Star Specs which were much more suitable since he will be joining the SCCA STX class. Eric also installed suspension parts like the KW V3 Coilovers and Whiteline offset camber plates which will greatly help his car handle better. He also bumped up the power with a Perrin lightweight pulley, air intake filter, over pipe, front pipe w/HFC, catback exhaust, and a tune to finish it all off.

Zach, a good friend of Eric, took some quick snaps of the BRZ so we could all drool at this beauty. Pretty impressive for a quick shoot, right? :)
