TRD Griffon Update

Not sure if this has been posted yet. Updated version of the TRD Griffon will be shown in the Tokyo Auto Show this year. Looks meaner and more badass than before with its new aerodynamic upgrades. According to the new specifications page, new parts are currently being tested/developed. As of now, the Griffon makes approximately 230PS with the new parts installed. For those who can't read Japanese, here are the list of items that are shown as "In Development".

http://www.trdparts.jp/86concept_2014/index.html

Development Parts Include:

TRD Pistons
TRD Connecting Rods
TRD Cam shaft
TRD ECU
TRD Front Lower Arm
TRD Cross Transmission Set
TRD 4.8 Final Gear
TRD Reinforced Clutch Cover
TRD Metal Clutch Disk
TRD Monoblock Break Kit & Pads (Possibly new version?)

If it weren't for the 2013 Griffon I'd probably still have the ugly factory fender garnish I've hated since day 1 instead of the TRD aero fender fins....

This 2014 one looks even better, both in aero and paint job!

Where can I get the 4.80 diff (or equivalent that costs less than $1,200+ for the TRD part)?

Contrary to popular belief, adding FI is not always better.
