  1. I run 18x8.5J. ET42 and the widest tyres I can run are 235/40R18 otherwise the tyre touches the spring mounts on the front stock shocks. I did have 225’s before but found the rims were getting too close to the tarmac for my liking. A bit too stretched in my opinion if you do track days. As you’re ET38 you’ll have an extra 4mm between the rim and suspension. So you probably could go 245. I wouldn’t go any wider though otherwise you’d deffo have rub if you have stock suspension like me.

    Rusty Sump

    Do you drive the car without an undertray? There is a lot of rust on the subframe too. Looks like its been driven without an undertray. Mine looks brand new underneath; certainly nowhere even remotely like that.

    2030 electric legislation

    I’m one of those people that has zero interest in electric or hybrids. But I can see the appeal/benefits of one. If anything my future car purchase plans involve adding more petrol cars with at least 8 cylinders to my collection lol Also financially there are zero benefits for me to make the switch as I don't have to commute to work. My cars are all for recreational use only. If all petrol stations disappear i’ll be happy buying barrels of E85 online. The more people that go electric the more petrol left for me lol

    2030 electric legislation

    I’ll still have my 86 in 30 years from now. They can put up the road tax and fuel prices as high as they want, i’ll just pay it and carry on. Worth every penny.
  5. Not trying to do you out of a sale... but these are only £24 inc vat brand new from your local Toyota dealer. I bought one of these myself only last summer. Exact same part number.

    Coilover help required

    If this was my car i’d remove the droplinks completely and secure down the roll bar then take it for a drive (very carefully) to see if the clonk has gone. If so, at least you know its not your coilovers and is either a drop link or the roll bar itself. If its still there then its gotta be the spring/shock or topmounts.

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    I don't think anyone on this forum is arrogant enough to ever insinuate they are an 86 expert. The only real 86 expert I’ve ever met was Tada-san lol

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    True but if you go through a deep puddle even without a turbo you risk thermal shock cracking the hot exhaust manifold or warping a hot brake disc etc. I’d still rather have the turbo placed lower than higher in the engine bay and be sure to avoid deep puddles.

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    Yes totally thats exactly why I went SC. I didn't want an UEL catless header as I didn’t want to risk failing DB checks on track days. Also keeping two cats stops any worries about MOT’s in the future. I was only aiming for 280bhp, so SC gave me the power bump without increasing noise.

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    If I was going to go Turbo I’d personally go for the Fensport Avo Turbo kit. Firstly because its a brilliant piece of engineering with great build quality and reviews the world over. Secondly because it locates the turbo in a great little spot under the engine. I’m really not a fan of turbo kits like the TD one that sit the turbo up high behind the bonnet catch. All that increased pipework and heat up near the intake isn’t where I would want it to be. I guess one downside of the Fensport Avo kit is that its only available as an UEL manifold. Fine if you like that kind of sound but I don't so I went SC instead.

    Oil coolers / baffled sumps

    They are all slightly different. I think most mount behind the fog lights but my Mishimoto is dead centre below the numberplate without any spacer/riser blocks. Mine has a bracket to attach to the crash bar then there are 4x self tapping screws to fix the bottom to the plastic tray. Some would say thats a bad Idea, but in almost 20 years of track days I’ve never come off and lost an under tray or a bumper.
