    Here is what I plan on doing next (short term)

    - New flowmaster 80 dual tip muffler. My 40's series single tip is already rusted and has a few leaks.

    - Ez lip for the front bumper, Ez sideskirts, rear bumper splitters and Fiat sedici OEM wing with lip.

    - soundproof for all 4 doors + hatchback door.

    - update the GPS maps and replace my dashcam with the newer a119 model.

    Long term :
    - 6 speed manual swap.
    - Custom fmic turbo setup w/stable 8psi boost.
    - 3 inch turbo back exhaust.
    - *get the block built (closed deck, maybe sleeved cylinders, race spec crank bearing, arp studs)
    - forged internals (pistons, rods, camshaft)
    - add and extra engine mount and potentially make the other 4 a little stiffer.

    The car is pretty much all payed off and it still feels like new. I have a strong attachment to it and feel like staying with Suzuki. It attracts a lot of attention and has a lot of potential of becoming a unique weekend warrior.

    A few updated pics :

    Went for a drive with a newcomer to clubsx4. Had a little mishap along the way. A front calipers bolt snapped off...

    Good thing I had some extra ones.

    I deleted the ac fan. It was not working and was in the way of oil filter changes.

    I also did a cvt flush. The whining noise was getting loud. The old fluid had a dark red tint and was almost opaque.

    The new fluid (valvoline full synthetic) is almost clear.

    The car runs smoother and the whining noise is gone.
