When parked, nothing about Jae's ride seems out of the ordinary-it's just a clean, stock-looking convertible with shiny wheels. When it's being driven, the whir of the turbo is immediately noticable, similar to a jumbo jet before take-off. It's addictive-you'll want to keep squeezing the throttle to hear the turbo huffing.

With his Fox's newfound power, Jae knew an upgrade was required in the braking department. After careful research, he settled on a complete braking system from the stopping experts at Wilwood. There was one catch: Jae wanted to retain his four-lug chrome 17x9-inch wheels. Wilwood obliged and custom-machined a quartet of rotor hats with the required lug pattern. Those hats are framed by slotted and cross-drilled rotors measuring 13 inches up front and 10.5 inches in the rear. Six- and four-piston calipers put the squeeze on Polymatrix pads front and rear, respectively. When it's time to throw out the anchor, Jae pumps the brake fluid with Wilwood's polished master cylinder.
