I bought mine used from a club member. Installed easily and works perfectly.

Not at all, plug and play. I took off the bottom dash piece under the steering wheel to make it easier to get to. 15 minutes top to install.

I got a refund from them. I think I will order one and give it another try. Thanks for your responses. It was helpful.

Replaced sparkplugs today @ 111k miles. It wasn't really all that bad. We didn't jack up the engine. Just removed the injector cover and strut tower bracing from driver's side. The hoses were a pain to get around, but my friend has small hands.

I think that's the most miles I've heard of on an 86! 2013 MY?

Yup, got it in June 2012! Haha I was at the dealer last week and dude said he hadn't seen one over 60k.

I believe there are a couple cars on here with higher mileage than me, though.

There definitely are. Over a year ago I remember reading a thread where a guy was over 100k..at the time I was at around 75k. I am now at 102k on my MY13.

I installed a Cusco pedal and drift button, which where a huge pain in the ass to get on, and I scratched my e-brake handle in the process so I was not a happy camper. Maybe some heel toe action tomorrow will make me feel better...

The Cusco pedal is a lot easier if you remove the front seat, or remove the accelerator pedal assembly itself.

I had a hard time with it in my FRS, but with my BRZ I took out the seat and it was 10x easier.

Thanks, I ended up powering through it... I think it would have been a touch easier if I had a small 7mm wrench on hand. I ended up improvising with a 7mm socket and pliers.
