Im starting to think they cant be installed on any RED manual FRS/86/BRZ.
Im now thinking maybe just painting my 3 pedals red or getting them anodized will have to do.

I think all you need is to pair the paddle shifters with a wide brake pedal.

definitely paint them, anodizing won't hold up as well. use a 2k gloss. after 2 days, be sure to wax them so they get a really deep gloss to them.

My oil is about a quarter of an inch over the full hole, and my coolant is a couple inches over the fill line. Is this why my car only has 160 hp?

NO. Your gas needs to be over the fill line.

Failed to mention what car?

Was it on the line a few days ago.

Is that seat of the pants HP or did you waste money on the dyno for an overfill ?

If it has returned from a Subaru dealer then all normal…

They always dodat because Subaru…

Maybe its hot now and stuff expanded check it again during the winter time.

If you are worried I would drain all suspect liquids and leave it rest without the drain plugs a few weeks before refilling with the Exact amount indicated in the Owners manual.

You did read the RTFM yes?

Not another OIL tread!

Last month I had issues with the red paint on my plastic carpets after it was applied to my pedals following @soundman98 sound advice, I got most of it off using some 40 yr old tire cleaner I had inherited a while back from my dad. … What a fair price for some custom carpets these days they look beyond new and very shiny.

My confession : Unfortunately I did use old tire cleaner to get the dust off this spring. : Don’t do that you will fall on your ass each time you get in…

Itís because you put 5W30 in.
0w20 gets you more hp.
But to get real results, run the engine without oil. Thatís what big oilís been trying to hide from all of us.
