Daniel's 86

So i purchased my ultramarine FR-S 6MT october 20th, received november 1st.
obviously like other members they jumping with joy!

i'd like to document my build and if any new members who have questions on things i my self have done and can answer i will be happy to help

So as of now i havent done anything, due to back surgery so now im recovered and back to work.

on my list to do.



-Engine Management Tune

-Mishimoto Inlet tube,drop in filter

-Clear Side Markers

-Red Tail Lights

-Fog Lights

-Duck Bill

-Oil Cooler

-Mishimoto radiator

-Invidia catless front pipe. INSTALLED

-Possibility HKS Headers

-Overpipe.

-Short Shift Kit

-Pulleys

-Belt

-Lower Rear Control Arms GT Spec

-Seats,Harnesses,Harness Bar

-BC Racing BR Coil Overs-INSTALLED

-Perrin Brake Booster Brace. INSTALLED

-DBA Slotted Rotos.

-Stop tech SS brake lines. INSTALLED

-Ferodo DS2500 Pads. INSTALLED

-Invidia N1 Titanium Tipped Exhaust. INSTALLED

-17x8 Rota Grid bronze +35 offset,225/45/17 Dunlop Star Spec DZII ORDERED INSTALLED

-Toyota Emblems-INSTALLED

-Carbonfiber Driveshaft

-Crawford Air Oil Separator

-Raceseng cam plate. INSTALLED

-Tow hooks

-Silicone coolant hoses



as for gauges id really like a 3 pod gauge single DIN and replace the stock head unit with a single DIN .
Im going to ad a Wide band a gauge for oil pressure and a gauge for oil temp

Ect. Better clutch/ flywheel. Knee pads, underpanels, engine dress up, rad cap, oil cap.

Come Spring I will be changing fluids, Trans,Diff,Brake Fluid. Ive heard great things from Motul for Gear Oil and I may stick with old faithful ATE Super Blue for brake fluid unless some one knows better break fluid that they could recommend.

Nice looking car!

Mods list is pretty sweet as well. You've done your research.
Dream world, I'd go Volks over Rotas, (wouldn't everyone!) but hey can understand as the te37's are probably 4 times the price!

So recently i ordered wheels tires and coilovers.

I bought 17x8 +35 Rota Grid racing in gold. with blue lugs hub centric rings and Dunlop Direzza ZII tires 225/45/17 after i put those on the handling was just insane.

shortly after i got coils bought BC Racing Br coilovers. ride height adjusted evenly and got it aligned. im very happy with the handling and the ride quality.

the only thing that sort of sucks is that the rear camber is un adjustable until i get control arms. so im sitting at -3.4 in the rear and adjusted the front camber to -1.1

sunday im auto crossing once again at the fairfield county sports car club event. to test how much more traction and handling improvements i get from this set up next will be a full corner balance
