What mods are planned in the future?
I plan on buying a set of cupped coilovers
to drop the car an additional 3 inches, along with a robotcraftsman widebody kit and a streetfaction Chassis mount wing. As for performance I want to get a better fuel system with bigger injectors and a larger supercharger to create more boost. I plan on either swapping the engine block for a billet shortblock or just rebuilding the internals to handle ~640bhp. Long term I aspire to swap the engine entirely for a twin turbo flat 6 from a porsche gt3rs.
I have always been really interested in playing forza, and throughout the game there was always one car that caught my eye, not just for looks and affordability but for the handling, and that was the subaru brz. I eventually did more research and found the toyota 86 in the game, which happened to be a rare version worth roughly 16 million at the time on the auction house. This roughly correlates to real life as the toyota 86 was produced in significantly less numbers than the brz or the scion frs. Hense my reasoning behind getting an 86 over a brz or frs. Ever since I purchased the car I have torn the entire thing apart over and over adding and adjusting every little thing to make it just a little bit more perfect. The stock car was a wonderful car but I wanted more power, so I bought an intake, then a tune, and an exhaust. All of these things let to a crave for more and more power. I finally ended up buying a Supercharger, because I wanted the low end torque a lot more than top end power from a turbo, and the result was incredible. The car currently makes about 300bhp and weighs a hair under 2800lbs. Overall I couldn't be more happy with the build. It's taught me everything I know about cars and I've done everything on it myself, learning as I go. It truly is my dream car. It's powerful it handles better than any car I've ever driven, it looks phenomenal, it's unique, reliable, and it's affordable. All things you need from a dream car.
