    Complete exhaust questions

    @matrixprotein gotcha man thanks! btw with all that flow in the exhaust (especially for the non resonated catback) wouldn’t it be raspy as hell? if you got any examples (even sketchy) I would really appreciate it 👍🏻

    Sorry I mean non resonated catback. But that will be ridiculously loud. I personally wouldnt go that loud. If you are turbo charging in the near future then you can as a turbo will make the exhaust quieter but if you're going to keep it NA a while, then I wouldnt but each to their own. Any reputable brand is fine I would think. Just not milltek Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk

  9. Hey guys I've got a couple questions for you. I know this might sounds a bit ricer for most of you but hey, just asking. Planning to get a turbo kit in the future, at the moment I would like to get my gt86 as loud as possible but without getting raspy. I live in italy and down here we don't see many really loud cars, so I would like to stick out a bit with some extra Dbs. I've watched tons of videos on yt but actually I can't still tell how loud those babies can get. I'd love to have a deep growly sound, less raspy as possible. To be as clear as possible this is a video of a (really) loud gt86. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmmAPC_uyvM if you hit 8:00 when he is revving, the thing I would like to avoid is that raspiness when the rpms drop after he has revved. Btw my goal loudness is to set off a couple of allarms at full throttle and still loud at low rpms but without screaming "hey officer I'm on a plane". I was oriented for the MXP comp rs Ti tips for the catback, but actually other than that I got no idea of what else to get as overpipe/headers. Keep in mind that here in Italy an e92 m3 with the armitrix catback is considered reaaally loud, so plz lower your standars a bit eheh. Some bangs would be lovely too! (but not popcorns, I mean straight up single gunshots) the mxp comp rs only sounds really really good but actually I don't know how loud could it be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vma8Pbbidug&t=124s I know I'm way to fussy but the sound component is way to important for me. Really thanks for your help guys!

    Rumours of next having turbo or a bit higher displacement have surfaced again and again every year. Never happened in past years, and high (imho 90%) probability won't happen in future either. Especially now, when to past reasons is added another one - such souped up twin competing with low-trim 4-cyl supra. Imho these rumours stem from two things, most obvious being simple wish for having more stock power by many that are less appreciating for what it is and expecting more strait line oumph (ignoring that it will go against original conception of "good enough for cheap" and certain to add 5-10K to sticker price, rather cutting potential buyers amount that can afford it, or at least nullifying any actual profits to manufacturer), and second being usual journalistic guess .. but what if it will happen, then their yet another rumour/guess will add some extra credibility and extra visits to their site/press/person voicing that rumour, increasing advertisement profit.

    Great you found what you wanted so quickly. It took me over a year. 😬 Let us know when you picked it up.

    Thank you mate. I’m just glad that I no longer have to keep checking what’s available on the market, been searching for a while now and it gets a bit tiresome after a while. The drive home is going to be awesome, something to look forward to 👍🏽

    Deal is done, here is a photo of the car. Due to being self employed I have work commitments until the end of the month but the dealer is willing to store the car for me until then. So I won’t actually be picking the car up until the end of this month. Can’t wait for the 120 mile drive home. Thank you all for your help and advice, really appreciate it.

    Quick update guys, the 2014 car has a full Toyota service history and best of all it’s just had the plugs done at Toyota at 60,000 miles. So it looks like I’m going ahead with that one.

    There are so many things in that article that I don't agree with. The obvious one is a move to the 2.4l engine. Forget the numbers, it will feel much more flexible in real-world acceleration and pickup. Some people seem to be expecting a Supra for 86 money. Not going to happen. We should be grateful that such a car still exists in this age of anodyne electric bore-fest.
  18. Has anyone else heard the rumours that the new car is going to be on the same chassis with only a mild power increase using a non turbo 2.4 boxer engine. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.topspeed.com/cars/car-news/the-latest-report-on-the-2021-toyota-86-and-subaru-brz-will-piss-you-off-ar188506.amp.html I think there might be some truth to this as surely there would of been lots of spy shots of a camouflaged test car driving around to test bed all the new components. Will the new one even look any different as we’ve only seen artists renditions rather than an official release from Toyota or Subaru.

  22. So japanparts didn't know what it was and I'm waiting on a reply from subaru uk, but I probably will be waiting a while we'll see. What I did find though is this hole is definitely on some cars and not on others, for example, looking at this video from carbon car systems: You'll see the hole that the mystical part covers right there, at 3:56 but this car (I'm guessing) has a lock barrel mounted... and here again on ft86 speed factory with a lock installed: and then on this 2013 brz... it doesn't have a hole at all! But none of these cars has the blanking grommet

    Someone is apparently going to let the dealer know tomorrow if they are going ahead with the purchase of the 2014 GT86 so will find out then if it’s still available. I have also noticed that cars that are red or black seem to be way cheaper. Is that because the pearl white demands a higher price or is this purely coincidental?

    Condition is everything. Pick whichever is in the best mechanical condition. As long as the recall has been carried out on the 2012 you'll be fine. For the higher mileage cars make sure the spark plugs have been changed at the 60k service. Whilst the cars were improved every year, the biggest update before the facelift was probably for the MY16 cars (build dates from mid 2015), which got better suspension. Most of the other changes were fairly minor, IIRC.

    I would go for the 2014 car.

    Difficult decision both cars are pearl white which is the colour I was after and not another dealer has offered me another GT86 which is a 2012 with 62,000 miles but he only wants £9000! His car is red though, which I don’t mind. Could save myself £2000 on this one and use that money on modifying it. Need to do some thinking

    2014 - There were a number of revisions and improvements. Most 2014 cars dont need the valve spring recall which alone is a big win. But then again the 2012 car may have already had the recall work done. Best to check it out.
