The aftermarket & car customization industry have been drooling for ages over the Toyota 86. Here are more of those interesting highlights about how the aftermarket explosively reacting by releasing special kits, modifications & editions for the car (thanks to ft86club.com). Starting with:
1. FIVE:AD by Five Axis for the Scion FRS
Special package released for the Scion FRS by Five Axis. Specs can be checked out at the exclusive webiste for the Five:AD kit. A complete Aero body kit with a selection of 19″ wide rims and lowering springs for the car. Overall it looks stunning with the kit and truly stands out.
2. Tein Coil-overs for the 86, BRZ & FRS
Although praised for the impressive handling characteristics, there is always room for more “thight-i-ness” around a corner & Tein released a set of Street Advance adjustable Coil-overs for the cars.
3. TRA Kyoto X Greddy FRS Renderings
This is an exclusive from Speedhunters. These are just renderings of a project car that will be built along with Greddy
4. Tunehouse BRZ Project
Engine swaps a becoming common and this the 2nd time somebody plans to drop a Cosworth engine into the 86. Earlier on we got news of a project in which they are dropping a 2jz into the car aswell more on that later.
Back to the Cosworth project here is how story goes:
Specifications are still being finalized, but company founder Jim Ghelis envisions the model will use a 2.6-liter Cosworth crate engine with a billet crankshaft, an HKS turbocharger and a front-mounted intercooler. The car would also be equipped with a billet flywheel and an EcuTek ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the BRZ would likely have an output in excess of 335 PS (246 kW / 330 hp) – an increase of 135 PS (99 kW / 133 hp).
Besides being more powerful, the car would be outfitted with an adjustable KW coil-over suspension, Whiteline anti-roll bars and a limited-slip differential. Other goodies are slated to include a Cosworth braking system and 18-inch Advan wheels with Federal RSR tires.
