    Stock manifold

    I'm guessing the cats are worth money, given the amount that are being stolen from easy accessible Jazz & Prius at the moment.

    GT86 Severe Knocking Sound

    That's awful, sorry to hear they have been so poor in resolving this.

    Exactly, a courtesy or hire car burning money by the day will focus their minds.

    GT86 Performance Pack Brembo Brake Pad

    Most of those pads will likely be noisier than your current ones. As said, you are wasting your money but sometimes you've got to find out I suppose.

    At 2500 miles after the recall I'd be taking that straight to Toyota, they've very likely botched it.

    how many miles since the recall?
  7. You do get some negative camber by dropping the car. If you're just getting lowering springs you can usually get over a degree of negative camber at the front by using camber bolts, cost around £20-25 iirc new. The rear is more of an issue, you will get more negative camber at the rear with lowering springs but its not desirable. The only way to adjust that is aftermarket adjustable trailing arms. I think it's probably ok as long as you don't drop too much.
  8. Option 2 is ideal, you'll have no issues with that and will look great. 18's look a lot better on this car.
  9. I like the Rays steel nuts. Heavier than alloy, and mine have got a little corrosion on them now after a couple years, but you don't need to have awkward conversations with every garage asking them not to use an impact on your alloy nuts.

    Milltek or Cobra exhaust

    I don't know if they have become louder over the years but the Cobra non-res I heard was really loud, you could hear the car coming well before you could see it.
  11. AD08R's have very stiff sidewalls that are a lot stiffer than even a PS4 XL. I think if you went to a normal XL tyre you'd notice a difference.

    New member - planning mods and trying TSS

    Clunk could be suspension preload or perhaps clearance issues with drop links.
  13. Tbh normally I'd have thought leaving the car modified would make it harder to sell on. Mine is properly tracked prepped with quality parts, (i.e. Rays / KW's / AP / HKS / Recaro SPG / Scroth 6 point / custom half roll cage), but the more you modify the less people it appeals to so I'd bet it'd sell easier standard.

    I found there was a fair bit of faff involved to get the correct amount of shims with the Reyland AP kit. If I remember correctly I grinded the casting a little on the carrier aswell, but I'm not sure that was totally necessary. I haven't noticed a humming noise.

    Catless header and heavy rasp

    I'd suggest putting your phone on video recording then lowering it down the front of the engine. You should be able to see on the video how close the manifold primaries are to the undertray. (obviously do it with engine off 😂).
