  1. You shouldn't have any issues, the failure rate for the valve springs is extremely low. I haven't had the recall and don't plan to. I've tracked the car for several years without issue, if it was going to break it would have done so already. I'd honestly be more concerned about bearing failure from lack of oil pressure, but even thats a very low risk as well. Just make sure you car is maintained correctly and it should be fine.

  4. Trackday: Brands Hatch GP hosted by MSVT Date: Thursday 23rd June Standard Price: £325 Club Price with 10% discount: £292.50 The GT86 Drivers Club will be attending Brands Hatch on Thursday 23rd June with MSVT for a sessioned trackday. This is a club booking so there is an additional 10% off the list price. We will also recieve 2 free garages if we get 10 confirmed bookings. Sessions will be made up of 7x 20min sessions throughtout the day. This is one of the few chances each year that the exclusive Grand Prix Circuit is open to the public and this is your opportunity to drive it. There is nothing else quite like Brand Hatch’s Grand Prix Circuit in the country. Blasting down Pilgrims drop, flat out towards Hawthorn Bend before taking on the Westfield Bend. Then, on to Dingle Dell and the sharp left-hander that is Stirling bend at which point you leave the woods and come under the bridge hard on the brakes for Clearways. This challenging array of high-speed corners and flat out straights should be on the list of “must-dos” for every track day driver in the country. BOOKING DETAILS TO BE CONFIRMED OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS - Don't book just yet. More details can be found here: https://car.msvtrackdays.com/Calendar/Car/BrandsHatch/2022/6/23

    Greddy Turbo kit

    I lied, there was once a demo car by a scottish company called RA Motorsport Development (the company has now closed down) which had the Greddy turbo kit fitted, however they sold the car to an international customer in 2015. https://www.facebook.com/media/set?vanity=RAMotorsportDevelopments&set=a.597443766935930

    Greddy Turbo kit

    The Greddy turbo kit isn't a popular option here in the UK, as most people have gone for the AVO Turbo kit from Fensport or Tuning Developments own turbo kit. I'm also not sure if the turbo kit is available anymore, as the Greddy USA website lists it a discontinued, see: http://www.greddy.com/products/turbochargers/all-turbo-kits/filter:make:Scion/. However the Japanese website has no mention of it being discontinued: https://en.trust-power.com/products/turbo/【zn6zc6】greddy-bolt-on-turbo-kit-t518z-10cm2-non-catalyzer/ As for owners of the kit I can't think of a single car fitted with the Greddy kit. There are three owners, that I'm aware of who have a replica kit, made by a company called Speed by Design which was a direct copy of the Greddy kit, but this kit had massive quality control issues and has since been discontinued. I suspect the reason the Greddy kit never really sold here was the lack of availability and it's price. Looking around at the UK 86/BRZ specialists, only Torqen list the kit on their website: https://www.torqen.uk/toyota/toyota-gt86/turbos-superchargers/turbo-kits/4284-toyota-gt86-greddy-t51z-tuner-turbo-kit-11510094.html However for this price it's near enough the same price as a fitted TD or AVO turbo, but for just the turbo kit, so you'd need to factor in installation costs as well. You could also import the kit (assuming it's still available) from RHDJapan: https://www.rhdjapan.com/trust-greddy-t518z-bolt-on-turbo-kit-without-sports-catalyzer-86-zn6-brz-zc6.html, however whilst this looks cheap, you've got to add shipping which is £300, then there will be atleast another £500 for shipping and import taxes and finally installation, around £1000. This means your still looking at around £4,500 for the kit. It also worth mentioning Greddy made a couple of different versions of the kit with turbo options and kits with and without catalytic converters. The one you want is the T518Z kit as this was designed for the stock engine and fuel system. There's more information about the kit here on the US forum: https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=68154&highlight=greddy Hope this helps.
  9. There's loads of flashing combo's, depends on how you have it configured:

    Litchfield Supercharger kit

    You on Facebook @Danny.BRZ?, there was a guy selling one about 6 weeks ago. I'm not sure if it's sold now though as I can't find the post, but it might be worth messaging the guy. Will PM his details.
  11. @Feemono & anyone else interested, At the recent Donington trackday I noticed two cars didn't have the little intake resonator despite having an otherwise stock intake. However what both cars did have was the Tuning Developments exhaust manifold, I therefore suspect that TD remove this as part of there upgrade package, most likely so it doesn't get mellted by the hot exhaust.

    Carbon fibre gear surround trim

    Unfortunately due to the shape and the fact the surround is clipped into place, your going to struggle to find a pure carbon piece. This is the closest all in one carbon style piece that I'm aware of: https://www.japanparts.com/parts/detail/?id=42130 As a much cheaper alternative have you considered having the part hydro dipped?

    Brake callipers upgrade

    The majority of companies offer both a front & rear kit. However you don't need to do the rears, just doing the fronts will be sufficient. Rear calipers are mostly just for looks. It depends on which Brembo front calipers you are referring to.
  14. From what I've read, I think your going to have the same issues with the new GR86 that you've got with the current GT. The Subaru boxer engine isn't really a revvy engine and it's not been designed that way. Yes the new FA24 has more power and torque which is why its faster, but it still won't be a light engine that likes to rev freely. You can ofcourse try and make either engine much lighter but we'd be talking (tens?) thousands of pounds with an engine rebuild featuring a stroker kit, lighter rods, pistons and upgraded cams. What's your ultimate goal for the car? Just to be a fast daily or a track car. If your happy with the current car, I'd atleast go down the lightweight flywheel and driveshaft route to begin with.

    Post your GT86 / BRZ pic of day!

    All the pictures of the crash bar I've seen have it. It must be something Subaru do at the factory.
