@Ashikabi my skid plate was pretty beat up too haha. It's pretty much touching the oil pan at this point. I need a new plate and oil pan.

@ermax It was a weird bump that I hit, and the coilovers that are on my car are a prototype set from a company that asked us to test them out, not sure if that has anything to do with it, but they ride pretty horribly, lol.

The valve has been installed for four years prior to this and has been on the car for 80k miles with no issues. It didn't leak at all after the impact.

Anyone felt zenki 86/BRZ steering is lil too heavy? Or while drifting or counter steering, steering get unknown heavy feel to it? Kouki 86/BRZ have resolved the issue by updating the EPS. Good news is, zenki 86/BRZ owner can do the same thing by replacing the EPS w kouki EPS.



Zenki model should have big “G” on it. Kouki model should have “1”... then why is other one have “3” on it? When I google search that part number it said it’s for ‘18 BRZ STI model. Which I’m assuming it’s for tS model (in US, BRZ tS came as ‘18 model). tS or kouki model EPS price was almost same on eBay (+-$5 difference). So thought to test it out if tS model EPS works on zenki model. Answer that question is, yes, it does work.

Work itself took about 30mins. Only 3 bolts, 2 screws & 1 nut to get it off, so why took 30mins? EPS is in very awkward area (behind trunk release & light adjusting buttons), so had to go through several wires with twisting my arm & hand to get those bolts off. If you careful and take your time, it’s not that hard. No, I’m not planning to make DIY, cuz it’s easy mod.

Test drove after installation and yes, there’s a difference in the steering feel. It’s a lot lighter. I prefer zenki power steering weight, but kouki power steering isn’t bad either.

Here’s a vid (if you understand Japanese)

Installed a 3.73 LSD rear end. Went pretty smooth, only took about 40-45 minutes.
Makes the car much more enjoyable on the street with the t56.

It is. Super easy swap and makes my setup much more Street friendly.
I might swap my original rear endís gears to 3.55 while I drive on this 3.73.

I can find other Lexus IS300 diffs for half that, but the M85 3.73 LSD, 700 was the going rate from what I found.

Good to know. I was just looking into this as someone nearby has the M98(?) diff. I kinda feel for 700$ I'd almost try to get a Ford 8.8 though... I feel like I could probably get one with LSD and installed for about 1000$. Gonna take some fabrication tho

I dont think m98's 3.90 gear ratio is a significant enough difference. At least for increased HP applications.

I considered the ford 8.8, previously I had one in my 240z. It was
$500 for the diff
$75 front yoke
$575 for stubs
$950 axles
$1000 mount kit


Two companies make mounts for the ford 8.8 into a FRS/BRZ:
Grannasracing $2,685.00
Full Blown Motorsports: $3,995.00


Though I like it better, I'm probably going to pull this 3.73 rear end in about a month or so and go to 3.55. Expect to see a FS thread at some point.

Ahh forgot axles. The mount kit itself I think I can make, at least cheaper than buying it from Grannas. It would obviously cost more than the Lexus Diff but I imagined it would be much stronger
