    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.
  2. 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.

    Engine Blown, What next?

    A full rebuild is around the £4K mark, if you only need the top half of an engine it might be cheaper. Here's a couple of places / people that might be able to help you source an engine. They can be found from £2000 to £4000. @Samwise has one for sale - see attached image.

    In comes the GR86

    For colours look here: https://www.toyota.com/gr86/ My name will be going down for one, possibly two, one for me & one for my brother. Although I'm not sure if its worth it for both of us to get one. I might have to get a Supra instead 🤔

    Bonnet vents

    Yes they provide a benefit, most noticeably with oil temps. However I wasn't concerned with this, I had them installed to reduce the engine bay temps around the coilpack area. What I should have done was have my exhaust manifold thermally shielded (google thermo met). I probably wouldn't bother if I was to do it again.
  8. Event Title: Midlands Lunch Meet - Sat 11th December (Hoof Beats) Event Author: will300 Event Date: 11.12.2021 Hello Everyone As we are approaching that festive time of year, we shall be hosting our December / Xmas Midlands lunch meet at the start of December. We shall be meeting at the Hoof Beats restaurant just of the A5 near Burntwood / Brownhills on Saturday 11th December at 11:30. Please can you confirm your attendance asap, so we can book a table for enough people. The car park is a good size, however we expect it to get rather busy. Because of this and the fact I we'd all like to park closer together, we should park around the back of the restaurant where there is a large parking area. Please can we all aim to get there for 11:30, no earlier please. This will give us time for everyone to arrive before we sit down for lunch at 12. Here's the menu: https://www.hoofbeatsbnk.co.uk/main-menu/ Thanks for looking.
