I got the issues sorted out with the OFT and flashed the V4 stage 2+ tune, threw in an HKS drop in filter, and itís running pretty good! Nice difference with the tune, cars feels nice and linear, but I might try out the e85 tune soon.

Also I got to hang out with other 86 people at a local cars and coffee!

It was 8/6 Day today so I treated the car to an oil change and fresh trans/diff fluid! I went with all Motul fluids and the difference in the transmission is great, buttery smooth. I also replaced a rubber piece in front of the rear wheels that tore a while back and a new splash guard for the transmission because all the eyelets stripped from me over tightening them last time.

Winter has been in effect in Indiana recently, so the car has just been hanging out in the garage. I ordered a few little pieces on Black Friday just to have something to tinker with. I ordered MTEC clutch and shifter springs, BRZ ts suede gauge hood and upper door trim, the JDM red door grips, and the TRD edition suede dash panel.

I got the interior bits installed and moved on the clutch spring, which was a big pain in the ass in my one-car garage. However, right after that install we got blessed with some warmer weather so Iíve got to drive the car a bit with the new spring and it feels great, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for better clutch feel! Going to knock out the shifter springs this weekend and Iím excited to feel that change as well.
Iím on the hunt for a set of 17x9 BBS LM barrels, so if you know anyone looking to sell some please PM me. I might end up having to buy a full set of LMs in that size and just swap my 5x100 faces...

Got the MTEC shifter springs installed last night, the space is tight but overall a pretty easy job. I actually had more trouble with the 27mm bolt on the passenger side than the allen bolt on the driver side despite there being slightly more room. Iíve only clocked a few miles this morning with them, so far itís a nice change, more of a solid feel, you really notice them shifting from 2-3. I think Iím going to buy the STi or TRD quick shift lever and some trans bushings eventually, I think together it would be a nice combo.
