We think it looks pretty good. Here is another reference shot of 255/40 on 17x9 RPF1 that we ran way back in the day.

More aggressive! Right in the middle between the Q300 and N1.

We didn't install Mishimoto's fan shroud kit because we we're focusing on the radiator installation process. But it does plug right into the factory wiring harness and pulls a lot more air in compared to the stock fans.
Will the Mishimoto fan shroud kit bolt up to the Jackson Racing dual oil cooler radiator?

How much does the MXP RS exhaust weigh in total? Savings from stock?

Its a direct replacement for the stock shroud, but thinner. So if you don't need to drill/move anything with the Jackson stuff, it should fit.

That's what I'm hoping is the case, but if I had a dollar for every time I heard that and then later encountered an issue that required some form of customizing, I'd be in Trumps tax bracket.

GCS Interior Footwell Lighting Kit


[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS4TBKhM1u8&t"]GCS Interior Lighting Kit - FT86SpeedFactory - YouTube[/ame]


New luxury vehicles like the 2017 BMW 5 Series come with ambient interior lights that set the mood of your drive. Granted the price of a new 5 series is about double that of our car, we still wanted to incorporate this luxury feature in our 86.



For the lights we chose to go with the GCS RGB Interior Footwell LED kit with Bluetooth connectivity so we can easily change the colors on the fly from our phone. Everything can be controlled through the Happy Lighting app that’s available for both iOS and Android. There is an almost endless amount of colors, pulses, and gradual color changes to choose from, and it will even pulse the lights to the beat of your music.



The kit comes with 4 LED light strips so we’ve got every seat covered, and we only need to connect two wires to power the entire system, which makes installation very quick. The hardest part about the install is running the LED wire through the center console from the driver’s footwell to the passenger side. But if you enlist a friend to sit at the other side, the process becomes much easier.



This aesthetic mod gives our 86 a greater sense of occasion when you’re behind the wheel. But if the bright LEDs that fill the footwells full of color are a bit too much, you can always tone down the brightness to suit your tastes.

How are those fortune auto prime coilovers? I'm in the market to buy a set of coilovers and was wondering how they do on the streets and at the track? Ill do some occasional track days and auto x and I only use my 86 as a weekend car. Wanna get rid of the body roll and the stock huge wheel gap!

The Fortune Auto Prime coils are pretty comfortable on the street and with a quick damper adjustments they stiffens up quite well. They're a great sub 1k coilover that offer custom springs rates, but since this wont be a daily, maybe consider a coilover built for track days.

Intec Fender Insert Turn Signals




The FRS, BRZ, and 86 each have their own uniquely styled fender garnish, but sadly none of them are functional. So in order to get some practical use out of what is normally just decoration, we installed the fender turn signals from Intec.



Currently these Intec fender insets are only available in gloss black, but thatís perfectly fine with us since it matches our gloss black emblems. On the inside the light strip is powered by an amber LED and it can easily be seen in the daylight.



This will be a very simple install and these fender inserts full replacements and fit just like the oem ganish. For any FRS or GT86 this will be a simple plug and play install since the turn signals are separate from the headlights, and Intec provides a plug and play harness for this application.
But if you own a BRZ or 86 like we do, the turn signals are integrated into the headlight, so youíll have to do a small modification to the harness and tap into the headlight wires. It may sound complicated, but itís a pretty straight forward install. I explain this more in detail in the video.

Pedal Upgrades

A common complaint with these car is that the brake and accelerator pedals are spaced too far apart, making it a little more challenging to get consistent rev matches for heel and toe. However there are a couple options to tackle this problem, and the two solutions can be combined for better results.

The first options is the SRP pedal covers

[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dwc3PVXrT-0"]How to Upgrade your Pedals - FT86SpeedFactory - YouTube[/ame]


These bolt on to the factory pedals and give the gas pedal an extra ĺĒ that extends on the side to make it much easier to blip the throttle.



They come in a full pedal set with a grid texture that adds a bit of extra grip and also gives the pedals a completely different look, which in my opinion looks much better than stock. But if you just want the extended gas pedal they sell them separately in a finish that matches the stock pedals.


The second option is the Velox throttle pedal spacer kit


[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBJyfgXvFWI"]Quick Heel Toe Mod - Velox Pedal Spacer - YouTube[/ame]


If you donít like the idea of drilling into your stock pedals and would rather install something quick and easy, then the Velox Spacer Kit may be a better option for you. Itís goes in between the throttle pedal assembly and the firewall and moves the pedal 15-20mm (adjustable) to the left closer to the brake, and 25mm forward, closer to the driver.



Since there are only four bolts and one electrical connection you need to worry about for this install, it shouldnít take more than 20 minutes.

Both options are going to help make your driving more consistent, but when theyíre combined youíre left with a pedal setup thatís close enough to land every throttle blip, yet spaced far enough apart that you can still comfortably operate the pedals wearing boots.

I have three questions,
1. There are a few people selling the component that houses the toggle switches And the duel zone climate controls for the BRZ and the limited-edition Toyota 860 would that be a plug-and-play unit in the new 2017 Toyota 86?

2. Would the instrument cluster with the info screen on right side from a Toyota 860 limited edition, be a plug and play if you also had the steering wheel controls for the right side of the steering wheel?
If not what would it take to make them work?
Thanks,
Ron
