Haha not quite mine is more like the trd equivalent to your sti dominant build. And could only wish that Toyota offered the 86 in yellow! That color is awesome!

I picked the Cusco since I'm it was the only JDM water cooler and the only JDM catch can that didn't require rhd (there are a lot that mount up to battery bracket)

Adhered to criteria of JDM only for headers altho the ace 350 likely gives better performance gains but the apexi setup keeps things quiet which was what I was after.

Our local law enforcement has gotten quite ridiculous as far as targetting modified cars.go now. People are getting pulled over now even if they are not making excessive noise if the officers behind notice the tip was enlarged

Thanks! Unfortunately the trd kit doesn't do much for wheel gap. If anything it reduces ground clearance which will limit the amount you can really lower before it becomes unsuitable for winters or make your aero more susceptible to scrapes and road damage. I believe around ~1.25" drop is needed to almost eliminate wheel gap. Dropping by only 0.8" you can't really notice it has been lowered at all haha

Very nice build. But I have to say the real treat in the thread is still the title. Good one Salty.

That's my plan as soon as I use up the stock 215 PS4. Couldn't justify buying a set of 4 new tires when stockers have less than 8k kms on them

Thanks, with the noise and exhaust tickets they are handing out these days in Edmonton I'm glad my exhaust is as quiet as stock. That and the quad tips shrink the size so they can't ticket for size.either. there were a few local members who have gotten ticketed for even the trd exhaust which is a factory option
