    Cat back & manifold advice

    I will have an ARK GriP catback (polished tip) for sale soon. https://www.torqen.uk/toyota/toyota-gt86/exhausts/exhaust-systems/3851-toyota-gt86-ark-grip-exhaust-system-burnt-tip-sm1202-0213g.html Purchased and fitted Oct 20. This is lovely deep sounding system even with the standard manifold. It also does't drone at all due to the nature of the Helmholtz design.
  2. I am running the Ohlins SUSMP21 coilovers with 5kg springs all round. They came with 40/30kg springs upon purchase in 2019 which I found a little soft on track. As for ride comfort, set at a anywhere from midway to soft settings will have them riding AND handling way better than stock. Just be aware that the strut design makes fitting camber bolts nye on impossible, so to obtain any camber you are looking at top mounts. I like many others have experienced the infamous Ohlins 'clonk' at low speeds over undulated road surfaces which is definitely related to the top mount to strut connection area https://www.gt86.org.uk/forums/forums/topic/8471-coilover-help-required/?tab=comments#comment-125547. I spent a great deal of time and money diagnosing the issue and assuming I had purchased damaged goods, the dampers were tested by Ohlins. They got a clean bill of health, and the top mounts were replaced FOC. The noise vanished once the stock mounts were fitted to the Ohlins struts, so the top mounts are where the noise originates. Saying that I also had some lovely Raceseng top mounts which were also ‘clunky’ at low speeds combined with the Ohlins struts. Obviously some NVH is to be expected on any coil over set up but the annoying noise I have experienced with these does cheapen the driving experience given that they are far more expensive than many other set ups which don’t suffer the same issue. Saying all of that the actual damping that can be obtained for both Road & Track is an excellent compromise IMO.
