Oh yeah, I forgot about the TRD intake! That would be a logical addition for your build theme. CARB legal, too, so you wouldn't have to swap it back and forth for smog testing.

I have the Perrin inlet tube on mine. It made a slight, but noticeable difference in engine performance and throttle responsiveness. I also liked how it removed the noise generator piping and cleaned up the engine bay, as you mentioned.

There are more than 100 of those covers I am sorry to say, I have one in my TRD 14r, as did every other 14r, not sure how many they made in total, but not many still - good find

Ah thank you for the confirmation!

A few stuff here and there but I keep forgetting to post on here. Been busy with work/life this quarter but hoping to do more car shenanigans once the weather gets much better!

Arrow UPDATE

As requested by @villainous_frx

Parts recently installed:
- OEM Aero "Nur Spec" Rear Under Spoiler
- TRD Shift Boot (M/T)
- Verus Pinch Weld Covers
- JDL Catless Unequal Length Header


OEM Aero Nur Spec Rear Under Spoiler
Shoutout to @Bach415 for this great OEM piece.
Been on my list of parts to get but never justified ordering this piece by itself.
Was glad to get it local and from a fellow 86 owner.
I was able to get all the OEM hardware needed to securely install it.
Really pleased on how it turned out.
It's subtle and fits very well with the rear spats.






TRD Shift Boot (M/T)
I was fortunate to finally obtain one of my most sought after parts.
I currently have the A/T version and was on the hunt for the M/T version for quite some time.
Extremely happy to add this to the build.
As you can see in the pic below, the hole is a bit smaller and also had a ring to attach to the A/T shift knob.
Once again, the little details are what makes this special for me.
I also have the TRD ebrake boot but it is for RHD.
Will probably need to find a shop that can do some custom work to make it fit.








Wanted to take this crazy pic since I don't believe I've seen anyone else do this






Verus Pinch Weld Covers
I forgot which post mentioned these but I was very glad to see them.
My pinch welds aren't in the best condition but I would like to preserve them as best as possible.
Thought these were a great addition and also makes the undercarriage look a little prettier.




JDL Catless UEL Header (Titanium Coating)
Shoutout to @stevelai68 for an amazing deal!
Was able to obtain a higher quality header with Titanium coating.
Has a deeper tone, closer to the "boxer rumble", which I'm guessing is due to the design.





Some extra pics after a thorough wash and to enjoy the amazing weather here in California








P.S. Also hit 86k miles. Wanted to share this neat little milestone.
