    MartinT's BRZ

    From Amber perf https://www.amber-performance.co.uk/product.php?xProd=25509 MAIN BENEFITS - Ensures the clutch engagement feeling is the same as the standard clutch. - Up to a 30% increase in torque capacity over standard. - Approximately 40% higher clamp load than the standard clutch. - Industry leading performance friction, achieving the highest fade recovery, the highest RPM burst test results, the best heat resistance and the lowest wear rate in the performance after-market.* Sent from my SM-G781B using Tapatalk

    MartinT's BRZ

    https://www.gt86.org.uk/forums/forums/topic/7345-clutch-for-fi-car/?tab=comments#comment-114727 Xtreme and Exedy both seem to review well. Check the torque specs Martin. Exedy stage 1 is rated at 190 lbft at flywheel, 160 at wheels supposedly. Your car produces more torque than that , I believe. What are the telltale signs of a slipping clutch and how much is the replacement going to cost all in Martin? Sent from my SM-G781B using Tapatalk

    Rusty Sump

    Not mandated by Toyota. Question back to you , does the Toyota come with a 12 yr paintwork anti perforation warranty? If yes, then it would be a condition to get it inspected every year at service and get a reseal done at Yr 6. Logically they are the same car made in the same factory by Subaru, so if the car is a keeper for you , then I will get it done irrespective of what Toyota mandates ( or not).

    I assume then the first owner did not give you the bodywork guarantee paperwork then? It does not seem mandated by Toyota. If you live close to Sussex , you can use Protectorust to do a professional thorough job for £200 with Waxoyl or Dinitrol. If you don't mind, how much is the Sump costing? You will need to leave the car overnight at the garage for the sealant to dry. How is your LSD sump/ housing looking? That bit needs some TLC in my car which I plan to do this summer. Glad it's not all the new baby getting the attention and the baby from the land of rising sun still gets tlc. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Here you go, from the Subaru manual for a BRZ owner Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Rusty Sump

    Interesting to note. The car is meant to be rust proofed at 6 yrs / 60K. Did you get that done? That should've sorted the subframe. Don't think they spray waxoyl on sump and the manifold heat cycles must be bubbling off the paint. What sump are you going with? IIRC, Cusco has a baffled, finned aluminium sump with potentially better oil cooling. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Fitting header + ecutek

    I am in RG6 I can let you borrow my ECUTEK if you are ready to spend the £85 ans we come out of lockdown. I am still not sure how you will save money on it as you will need the license + you will need to buy a remote tune from Fensport or Abbey . It's neither easy nor quick to tune yourself but less than 5 mins to upload a tune file and then a few mins to datalog and send the tune for fine tuning. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    The closest to you will be Fensport. Speak to them about the options available. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    Rather than paying them for a dragparison, just pay for a FI kit and enjoy the boost. or you book a few of us with various kits at santapod and we will do it for you live

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    It was tested on CARB California exhaust rules, so stock exhaust and both Cats intact . I think with that set up a Harrop would be ballpark thereabouts Martin. Dont you think so? Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    Took me a while to find it ,this is the best review for FI kits with all sorts of data and slants just from across the Atlantic. Take your time and read it a few times over Jay. Edelbrock is very similar to Harrop as it uses the same charger Eaton TVS 1320. So reference it that way and enjoy making your mind up. https://dsportmag.com/the-tech/showcase/the-2018-86-challenge-presented-by-eneos/2/ Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    I did tell them which is why they did not bother fitting that turbo engine to the BRZ in first or second gen even though they had to develop the NA variant specifically. [emoji6][emoji6]For a high ground clearance SUV or even a rally car vs a low to the ground sports car, no comparison mate. [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    Very few will claim they did damage driving their car through water. That's an idiot claiming he is one. [emoji2960][emoji3] So forums will not abound with such feedback. I did say its not a hugely likely scenario but with a low car and potentially lowered , is not a brilliant design for a daily. Great for track though as low COG. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    Fair shout. Intake on one side ( not the sucking of water into engine and total write off scenario) , turbo itself runs so hot that any water touching it will cause it to split/ crack and is not a cheap replacement. So the risk exists with low cars like ours and while the design has pros of low cog and potentially lower intake temps , it has cons as well. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    If its a daily, a low mounted turbo on a low car runs a potential risk of water ingress , especially with deep puddles. Does not happen frequently but is a risk due to design. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk
