    K-sport brake info

    Ah cool I've just had a look at their kits, how have you found them? I guess if they are similar then they might be interchangeable with k-sport/ ap racing discs and stuff Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    K-sport brake info

    I use PB Brakes which are made in the same factory as K-sport & D2 brakes (And they're cheaper!) and as far as I'm aware yes, when you specify the larger disk size it's all the same gear just with a different bracket.

    Lightweight flywheel

    Well as I said it's all preference really, that's what I love about our cars, there are so many mod options. I'd say if you were going for power then maybe the money is better spent on something else, but if you want the car to feel a bit more rev happy and like to heal and toe and things then yeah I'd recommend it Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Lightweight flywheel

    Would you say it’s worth it then for the £300 whatever price

    Lightweight flywheel

    I wouldn't say loud but yeah there is a little chatter you can hear when idle Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    Lightweight flywheel

    Is it loud? Lightweight flywheels tend to make a loud noise

    Lightweight flywheel

    I got tuning developments lightweight flywheel when I changed my clutch, I do love it, you can tell it revs a bit more freely (more noticeable for me on decel) although i have lightweight water pump, crank and Alternator pulleys aswell I wouldn't say it will give you a big power increase and it is a little easier to stall but like anything it's up to you.

  13. Does anyone know if k-sport use the same calipers and and fittings between the 330mm kit and the 355mm kit? Like would I be able to buy either disks and get them to work with maybe just a different caliper bracket? Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk

    This resonates with me, in all my years buying and driving cars, the aesthetics/beauty has been very important, as such, I've always bought sports cars. Hatchbacks hold no interest for me, the GT86 is pretty much the perfect car for my needs

    Anyone heard of these??

    Very good answer. I would add to that that you would usually get a tune to go with any decat manifold (you have to, to avoid the lack of O2 sensor causing check engine). A really well-developed map will give you a much cleaner burn than the manufacturer's stock tune, which has to account for lack of servicing, poor fuel and oil, different weather etc. I say this with confidence as my fuel economy with a supercharger and good ECUTeK tune is better than it was in stock form.
  16. A simple enough modification, and inexpensive at £35, I have swapped out the standard shift knob for a Tomei SS, and I bloody love it. If it cost twice as much I'd still consider it good value, it's made changing gear a much nicer experience, looks tasteful, and has got rid of an annoying squeak the standard one had. 10/10 - would recommend

    Yes - the close coupled cat is to pass homologation. It's there because this is tested starting with a cold engine under much stricter test conditions and getting cat light off is critical to passing (how strict this is depends if you have a stage 5 or stage 6 car). MOTs are done on hot engines with hot catalysts and basic test kit so you'll pass with an underfloor only. The majority of emissions are created at cold. Once hot a modern gasoline engine with a catalyst is a remarkably clean bit of kit. So it is a moral question - are you okay removing a piece of tech that is there to protect the environment even though you won't get in trouble for it? How much it hits the environment depends on what percentage of your time is run cold vs warm. I'm not judging or telling you what to do - just letting you know that you will be contributing a few more pollutants into the atmosphere and if you are okay with that then have at it. Your MOT tester will not call you out.

    I guess I'm settling into the groove of my 40-mile commute down the M3 and trying to 'make progress' without driving like a moron. My mileage has just reached a new peak of 32.5mpg. Not bad with a Harrop on board.
  19. I'm selling my Tuning developments resonated cat back exhaust as I've now sold my car, if you're thinking of getting rid of your stock exhaust I'd definitely recommend one of these, totally transform the sound of your 86 without pissing of your neighbours 😀 I put it on my car just after Christmas and it's done 2000 miles at most as you can tell by the photos. I'm located in North Birmingham and can deliver if within a 20 mile radius ( as I'm such a nice bloke ) I paid £535 but I'm looking for around £475 Collection only from North Birmingham
  20. I'm selling my genuine bootliner as I've now sold my car, I paid £85 for it 10 months ago. It's totally unmarked and like new £55 ono Collection only from North Birmingham

    Yup, there's tonnes of people on here running various aftermarket manifolds with out the pre-cat with no problem at all. The only point it can get a little iffy is if you fit a higher flow cat but then that's just one of those things. If memory serves me from the good old days of Subarus, the pre-cat is only there to get the car under a particular level for type approval. The emission threshold for the MOT is actually significantly higher but they have to come from the factory with the pre-cat as that's what they type approval was awarded with.

    In comes the GR86

    That bumper looks a bit too aftermarket in my eyes, but it does fix the biggest issue with the front end styling, which is that the tall and narrow grille on the GR86 makes the whole car look too tall and narrow and makes the nose look a bit dumpy.

    In comes the GR86

    That grill is so much better.
  24. I don’t wanna speak too soon, but cleaning the MAF and resetting the ecu last night using this method https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68328 seems to have improved it. There still seem to be a little bit of Rev hang changing gear, and deceleration doesn’t seem to be immediate but it hasn’t spiked higher than 1200rpm when dipping the clutch coming to a stop which is the main improvement. I just can’t remember if all that’s normal behaviour or not lol I spent £20 on some special Moly spray and £30 on a new gasket so I’ll probably remove the TB after the MOT and give it a new coating anyway and hope I don’t make it worse [emoji1787]

    Anyone heard of these??

    Really? Maybe I should just go decat then, thank you!

    Anyone heard of these??

    Honestly you've got nothing to worry about if you're keeping the main cat, the pre-cat doesn't do an awful lot. I've had a TD manifold on my car for several years now and it's passed the emmissions test with no problems at all, in fact it passes easily even after i fitted the supercharger.
  28. So been on the search for catted headers and don’t really want to pay £1000+ I came across a website called “directfitexhaust” their headers look good but does anyone know anything about them? website seems okay but there’s nothing been said anywhere about them or their products If not then can someone point me in the right direction with catted or decat headers 😁 I am keeping 2nd cat, just worried about MOT if I went decat 🤣 TIA
