It looks like a variable intake manifold? Wouldn't it require corresponding tweaks to the ECU to make it work?

Wow you guys are truly optimistic!
Can you buy the parts? Sure but....





Can you legally use most of those parts in the US (I know most don't care but)?





And to spoil the fun even more you can't buy RS1 parts without a VIN so how is this different?

Tcoat's got a point. They're expensive and not intended for the U.S. market.

I really want that carbon fiber hood, but I probably won't ever get it due to what Tcoat mentioned above: Hard if not impossible to get, expensive, and illegal. Still nice to dream about it on my FR-S I suppose...

the GRMN is a homologated car built by gazoo racing and developped on the nurburgring. and so its fully legal.

the header is catless, but the frontpipe has still a cat.

will keep you guys posted if i manage to order parts or not.
Going to test order the airbox nd airfilter and possibly the whole intake manifold.

the intake manifold indeed needs a vsv to operate the acis valves inside, but this is an easy tweak, think about the cpc solenoid people are using to wire in their flex fuel sensors.

Fully legal in Japan. Not so much in the United States since it was never sold here. Someone feel free to tell me if I'm wrong about this though, but I'm not certain they'll be legal even if you can bring them here.

Regardless, keep us updated if you're successful.

EDIT: Noticed you're in Belgium. I'm not too sure how everything works there, but like I said, keep us updated.

investigated further some things.

it appears the variabele intake manifold uses 2 vsv's and a dedicated vacuum pump driven from the rhs intake cam + a lot of vac tubing.


i tried to lookup pricing, but for now only pricies from the stock toyota pieces, the other items are listed as "from 09-02-2016" so we need to be a little more patient.


then about legality. the GRMN is a "limited" run of 100 special 86 developped for whoever wants to buy.... but they are offered only trough the japanese GRMN website and therefor marketeered for the japanese market only i think.

It may be these parts are not just plug and play. Would be nice though. I still believe these GRMN parts will be made available to the public in the US after the 2017 launch. Like TRD these could be sold along with TRD ad on's. As for aero and non engine and mechanical parts Id say it would be safer to buy those.
