    Rocket Panda, the Minion and myself confirmed so far.
  2. Hey Jay. Yes it is a pity they stopped making the kit. However, Cosworth provide engineering services throughout the motoring industry and are also working in new technologies, so there is/was a lot going on. Their research when developing the S/C kit for our cars was exhaustive to say the least, so no compromise as they wanted to protect their reputation apart from any other factors. The kits did not sell as well as maybe expected because they were not cheap. But then it is Cosworth, so I for one of the few takers, was quite happy to pay a premium for the reassurance the company name provides. And even though they no longer produce the kit, the senior engineer on the project is still only an email away. The kit comes with a conservative map of around 270bhp, which you can then extend with exhaust and pulley upgrades etc, and individual maps can be created for personal modifications, overseen by the Senior Engineer. I had, I think, 6 maps done during the setting up of my car, which all went back and forward to Cosworth as various exhaust options were tried. Having a safe map was the key factor.

    All Things Jap event Sat 29th May

    The B Road Hunting Club are inviting Jap cars to the Bentley Motor Museum site in Sussex this coming Saturday. They are open 10 till 5 for coffee, light lunches etc. It is a sort of cars and coffee event with a jap theme.The Museum itself is not open AFAIK. The postcode is BN8 5AF.Be good to see some 86s/BRZs there. Let me know if you are thinking of attending.
  4. You are indeed correct. Looks like this.
  5. Hello Jay My car passes emissions test legitimately at my Toyota dealership. I have second cat delete pipe, but the OEM exhaust manifold (with primary cat) still in place. I did drive around on the original primacies and alloys for a while, and under most circumstances they were okay, but under hard acceleration from standstill I could easily fishtail with a nasty smell. Since uprating wheels and tyres I have had no traction problems.

    Bentley eh? I would be interested in the Sunday definitely, and possibly the Monday if the other show we usually attend is not happening!

    After a brand new 21 plate GT86 at a discount?

    Yes it is unusual, and I have no facts other than what I was told. And the pre-reg car I saw before me. Because the dealership ended up with a car that they can't sell as new because the GT86 is no longer part of the Toyota new car range, so I was told by Glen. And because it is an odd situation, I have put Glen's phone number there for anyone interested.

    Superchargers and fuel consumption, any views?

    Before supercharging, I was averaging 34 mpg, and since "enjoying" the S/C experience I am averaging 24 mpg, so your results are very similar

    Hi Whizo. Sorry, I don't represent the dealership so you will have to go directly to them. Ask for Glen on 01323 505025
