Not sure if there are battery size difference between Canadian and US/ Zenki and Kouki models though.

I just measured the TRD clamp and the grooves that fit on the back and front top edges of the battery is 13cm. If your OEM battery is 13cm from the front to back along the top then the clamp will fit your battery

I honestly wouldn't have thought Japan models would have different batteries either lol. Would've thought aside from the rhd/lhd difference that the rest of oem parts would've been identical.

Anyways, got the blitz radiator, cusco oil cooler, cusco oil catch can installed yesterday. Today detailed the engine bay + dressed with carpro perl. Never ever getting rustcheck again. didn't realize how greasy and grimy it made everything in the engine bay.

Haha I appreciate that they put the redline exactly at 7450 RPM. That's some attention to detail right there.

It looks really nice in person. It's a little brighter than I like on its lowest setting, but it's not too bad. Overall I'm quite happy with it.

Installed the GrimmSpeed pulley cover. Aside from light bulb swaps and air filters, has to be the easiest thing I've done on the car, and looks pretty good to me.

Also visible but not previously mentioned, installed a Mishimoto catch can a few months back, good peace of mind part for me.

You can apply some butcher paper behind the cluster face (cut out the holes) to lessen the brightness.

Installed the Slambert Performance Twin Hitch and a Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2.

I shouldn't count on it, but I hope that the next gen 86 will have the same distance between the two tow points, so I can reuse this hitch.

Now that's a nice bike rack. I wish I knew about it before I built mine. And the price is about right too. I use mine so often that I haven't removed it in months. (I'm retired got nothing else to do.) I have discovered a major flaw in my design though. You can't open the trunk with it on. Shouda made the uprights 8 inches shorter. Maybe I'll modify it one of these days. (Retired got nothing else to do.)
