Well I've had my 86 for 4 years(Mar 7th 2015) and haven't upgraded because the only logical upgrade IMHO is a Cayman or 4C( something small, RWD and light(sub 3000 lbs) with a turbo 4). My car has...

That's still too much weight for my liking plus the CoG issue on a car that Toyota touted so much about. I'd rather gain 20+ lbs without stacking that weight high because it came with 140hp/140tq.

If it's based on a BMW platform then it won't be that light. The M2 from BMW weighs 3450 lbs even though it's kind of small. The Supra needs the 86 platform with a slight increase in size instead.

The automatic transmission "cooler" is really just a heater to get the AT trans to temp it's not a cooler. An oil cooler and this OEM heater works together if you buy a thermostat for the oil cooler.

Yes it is!!

I rarely ever need to go to my peak of 300whp which is weirdly available at 6500 rpms. At 4500-5000 my power is 205-230whp while torque is 237wtq at those rpms.
