Current State:




2015:





===============================================



After owning this car for 5 years so far, I learned to truly appreciate this platform.
Of course many would say that this car is "lacking power" but I'd say its plenty for me.
The handling and feel of this platform is amazing as stock.
When paired with better suspension and stickier tires, boooiii does this handle like a dream.

As my daily driver, it makes mundane commutes much more enjoyable.
For now, it is my daily driver that occasionally hits back roads/canyon roads but I hope to bring it to racetracks, perhaps starting with AutoX.
I have learned a lot from this amazing piece of machinery and hope to keep it for the longevity of its life.

Hopefully I remember to check back to this page to keep y'all updated on my build!



===============================================



First Day Picked Up (January 2015):




FUN FACT: After just 6 days of ownership, I got rear-ended by a police officer due to him being on his phone.
There wasn't a lot of damage, just a crack in the bumper and broken reverse light housing.
I was heartbroken but the car was still in great shape.
Thank goodness the cop covered the whole thing.











===============================================



Some of my Favorite Goodies:

TRD Radiator Cap

Thanks to the lovely GF




FT86SpeedFactory Catted Unequal Length Header




OEM TRD RS1.0 Quad Tip Catback Exhaust(Midpipe not shown)






TRD Quick Shift Kit (USDM)




OEM 86 Trunk Liner

Imported from the Great White North
http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showp...ostcount=18333








OEM Carpeted Trunk Liner & 2019 OEM TRD 86 SE Brembo BBK

Always thought it was weird that "Scion/Toyota" never included this and that the trunk looked naked without it.
Found the 2019 TRD 86 SE Brembos for a great deal through a local FaceBook group and included everything needed.
The best part was that these only had about 500 miles on them!




TRD Shift Knob (MT)

Thanks to a great friend of mine




TRD x MOMO Steering Wheel

Dusted off my DSLR and took some photos with all the free time given by this whole quarantine.
Please excuse the dirtiness, weather has been weird.

Yours is nicely setup

But please tell the owner of the silver to adjust his ride height and what not - all kinds of suspension and alignment problems have probably started on that one, not to mention it looks lame as hell

Trust me, I've told him
He prefers the "low life" and he's happy with it so whatever floats his goat. \_()_/

Arrow UPDATE

Finally installed my JDM headlights after having them sit for almost a year lol

The reason it took so long was because i've been putting off the rewiring since they are JDM spec.
A member here was selling a harness that made it pretty much plug and play.
Jumped on it ASAP and finally got them on. Definitely one of my favorite mods!

I also did a full LED/HID 6000k conversion for exterior lighting
(high beams, fog lights, switch back turn signals & relay, side marker lights).


I removed this resistor since it can effect the LED strip and possibly ruin the headlight itself.



Before:


After:







Since these are JDM, the LED strip doesn't work as DRL's but it works with the high beam for regular night driving.
Start at 0:49 for example

Arrow UPDATE

Got new tires to replace current balding set.
Replaced Dunlop Direzza ZII's for Dunlop Direzza ZIII's, same size of course.

Pulled the trigger on a Nur Spec Front Lip and TRD Side Skirts via @nigel-jdmparts.
Will update y'all once it comes in!

Arrow UPDATE

Here's a part that I thought I wouldn't get since it's a little expensive but there was a deal too good to pass up.
\( ̄▽ ̄)/



Picked up the updated 2017+ traction control buttons.
I always thought the checkered flag looks better than the 2013-2016 buttons.
These were direct plug-n-play with no issues.
Nothing but an aesthetic purpose imo.



I also did some basic maintenance:
- Oil change (Every 5k miles)
- Oil filter
- Air filter

One thing I feel that is usually overlooked imo is the cabin air filter.
I usually change these every 6 months, depending if I use my A/C frequently.
I prefer having the windows down and listen to the sweet sounds of my
exhaust but the gf insists on having the windows up. \_(ツ)_/

I also put a dryer sheet to make the A/C smell real noice too
In the photo it shows a weird discolored shape due to the previous
dryer sheet shifting a little.




That is all the updates for now.
Still waiting on the front lip and side skirts to come in!

Have you installed the motion control beams? Can you tell they do anything?

They have been installed.
I've had them on the car for about a week so far and I have noticed a difference.
It's not a big difference but still noticeable.

This video sums up the benefits of it.

Arrow UPDATE

Kit finally came in after 3 months of waiting

So happy to source out the Nur Spec lip since it was rumored that it was difficult to obtain due to being discontinued for a few years.

Not sure why Toyota didn't offer this in the U.S. but I guess it'll make my car stand out more from the crowd.

It came with a crap load of push clips and screws but no instruction manual.

Fortunately it was straight forward and had a fellow 86 buddy give me some pointers to install it ease.

Needed a little bit of TLC but it fit like a glove.

The TRD Side Skirts weren't too difficult.

They came with instructions too and were straight forward.

I'd recommend having someone help you but doing it by yourself is doable.
