You going to look at a different style front splitter? Does the TRD have one?

Don't think I can be bothered to replace it for the amount of problems have had with it from the very beginning :!: :!:

Lost count how many times I grounded out, mainly coming out of Multi-Story Car Parks #-o

Don't really want to spend any more money on this car :arrow:

Head Up Display (HUD) is now installed in the GT86 along with a On and Off Switch =D>

It only cost £17.99 which is a real bargain which plugs directly into the ECU via the OBDII Port :thumright:

A few Photos of the Dashboard :arrow:

It's wired directly to the OBDII Steve so feeds off the cars computer and there is a Switch if it needs to be turned off when the Engine is running :thumleft:

As I said to Nick (13Black) earlier, will take some photo's in the dark later as Cameras don't do it justice in the Daylight :!:

Just read through some of your thread, that's a long shopping list for your GT86! I take it power/handling isn't your thing?

I did some early forced induction development on the FA20 platform 5 or 6 years ago - probably still have some bits somewhere!

Had the car Re-Mapped but just couldn't justify the cost on fitting a Turbo or Supercharger to the car, which is one of the many reasons why I not done that :!:

There is nothing wrong with the handling so why change something that isn't broken :arrow: and have driven 45 Track Days in this car :shock:

Wasn't criticising your car chap! I had one of the first Sprintex superchargers in the country and I can categorically recommend not ever buying one :)

Have you got the later rear anti-roll bar? (16mm) - if not that's a fantastic upgrade on a standard suspension car. You can pick them up for peanuts from standard WRX hatchback Imprezas (not the STI though).

Recently had Whiteline KBR38 Rear Brace - sway bar mount supports fitted to the car that certainly improved the way the car handles at the back =D>
