OK, so we might have gotten a little carried away with our company toy. Follow us on our journey of insanity!

What started out as a stock Toyota 86 (Scion FR-S) is now far from it. Soon she will be a fire breathing twincharged widebody monster, pushing out over 500hp!

 

If you own an 86, you should DEFINITELY check these two links out:

1) The 86/FRS/BRZ specials on StreetFX store here:  Toyota 86 (BRZ/86/FRS) Store

2) The 86forums.com here: 86Forums Community

Here we will give a bit of a run down of the more important milestones during the build.

The original build thread on 86forums.com is here: BUILD THREAD

 

Anyway, here is a list of modifications to date, along with some interesting pictures that show its progression from stock, placid little old 86, to a monster!

9/July/2012:

Stock, this is the day I picked the innocent little thing up.. Little did she know what was in for her :) 

 

white1.JPG

 

 

As soon as we got the car, we changed little things like the interior/exterior lights, badges, changed to BRZ garnishes and of course ditched that horrible factory license plate bracket etc.. (If you have an 86, we HIGHLY suggest you replace that stock license plate bracket with the StreetFX Slimline one, available here: SLIMLINE TOYOTA 86 GT GTS ZN6 NUMBERPLATE BRACKET number license plate Scion FRS 

 

86rear1.jpg

We also changed to LED indicators to get rid of the orange..

 

indicator_compare2.jpg

 

indicator_compare3.jpg

 

 

We now run chrome indicator bulbs instead of LEDs on the front/side.

 

We also now run 24LED replacement numberplate light modules, as some people complained that personalised plates with frames obstructed the factory lights.

The day after we picked up the car, it went to Solar Style window tinting to get paint/interior protection and some custom tint. Next it went to Option 1 Garage for a set of coilovers (BC Racing, later switched to MCA) and rims.

Then the car went to Audio Express. Hertz kindly supplied us with some awesome audio gear (amp, splits and sub), and Chris (Audio Express) installed it all along with a reverse camera, and the TPMS system:

Then came the TRD bodykit from Import Monster, which was fitted by Cammo at Cameron’s bodyworks:

We were approached by MCA Suspension who wanted to test some new suspension on the car, so Josh Coote, put together a nice package for us. We currently have MCA Red suspension on it (although it is in the blue housing at the moment). With this suspension in it, Josh took the car around lakeside for testing, and we were pretty happy with the 1.03 lap times, for an otherwise stock car.

We then sourced some Cusco strut braces via Jesse Streeter in Japan, and fitted them:

 

cusco9.jpg

 

cusco10.jpg

Next the engine needed addressing.. Stock the car made 108rwkw, here is a stock dyno sheet:

 

stockdyno1.jpg

 

 

It was always going to need more power, so we grabbed one of the first AVO turbo kits available in Australia, from “Car Mods Australia”. This was fitted by Option 1 Garage over the course of a day.

 

turbokit.JPG

 

avo2.jpg

 

avo.jpg

 

 

While we were at it, we got the Invidia and Perrin exhaust parts from CarmodsAustralia as well:

 

inv1.jpg

 

nv1.jpg

per.jpg

 

When adding a turbo (extra heat), it’s always good to upgrade the cooling system, so we got a HKS oil cooler from “Northshore Toyota” (a vendor on here).

 

hks.jpg

 

 

We also upgraded the brakes to AP Racing:

 

ap.jpg

 

 

AP Racing vs stock:

Fitted (by option 1 garage):

Not much changed on the car for a while due to work commitments and delays in supplies of parts. Due to not fitting the catch can/PCV we held off from taking the car to the track since it has been turbocharged, as we had still been using the vehicle for daily driving.

 

During the downtime, we purchased a spare motor which was stripped down so the engine builder (JHH Engineering) could assess what would and would not be needed. It was not long before it was revealed that these are an open deck block, and would easily throw a rod through the side at the power levels we wanted if we did not strengthen it. We were initially going to just jam some forged rods/pistons in but JHH strongly advised that we should sleeve the block as well as run forged low comp pistons and forged rods.

 

Here are some pics of the stock engine/head/pistons:

 

eng1.jpg

eng4.jpg

 

 

Not much happened from here on, but  we did a few minor tweaks like add this CaFi 62100 head unit that interfaces with the OBD2 port on the car, as well as have wifi/3g capabilities to surf the net and facebook while driving :P

 

cafi0.jpg

Then we change the tail lights to Valenti SG Smoked:

DIY: Installing aftermarket (Valenti) FOG/Reverse lights (remove/refit)

 

We were a little bored of the old wheels so we figured since the new rims we wanted were 19s, the old Achilles 123S tyres could say goodbye in style:

 

86skid1 copy.jpg

 

 

We switched the old rims to these wicked looking concave CC03’s.. They measure 19×9.5 and make the car look more aggressive:

Update: 12-Oct-2013: 

 

The car is due to go into Cameron’s Bodyworks to get the widebody kit fitted in 2 weeks. This is going to be molded in (not tacked on).

We are presently waiting on the engine to be finished, so that will most likely go in shortly after the wide body is fitted.

Updates to come shortly with the “good stuff” eg when the factory bodywork gets hacked off :S 

 

 

Update: 14-Oct-2013: 

Rocket Bunny kit finally arrived (took 6 months since date ordered argh!). 

First thing you notice is just how deep the wing is!! It’s like 50cm front to back, its so aggressive and massive haha 

So as of next week, the cutting starts.. EEEK!!

Update: 22-Oct-2013:

TRD kit has been removed, front guards and bars are now off.. The work is underway.. Eeek. Love the message from Cammo (at the panel shop).

The new turbo manifold and parts of the bigger turbo upgrade have arrived.. ID1000 injectors, vband manifold, recirculating dump pipe, and a bunch of other goodies now added to the pile.

Update: 23-Oct-2013:

 

First cuts to the car commence, no turning back now :S New inner guards will be made to mate to the widebody, ensuring that no dirt/dust/mud/rust can get into the guards. Rear windows removed as well, since half the car will need to be repainted.

Update: 24-Oct-2013:

 

Inner guards have been mocked up and will be made and attached later (first pic shows this). Widebody guard bolted/riveted/glued onto the panel, panels being sanded and prepped ready to mold the widebody into the factory panels. New inner guard fabricated.

Update: 25-Oct-2013:

 

Another visit to Cameron’s Body works saw the latest update to the car.. Also finally got around to grabbing the pics from my Digital SLR camera, so some of these pics are from earlier this week. Inner guards have been made, from metal, seam welded and sealed with rubber sealant (like factory seal sealant). These will be made flush with the rocket bunny flares. The rear diffuser is getting modified by  to accommodate the factory style reverse/foglight combination, rather than the Rocket Bunny reflectors and tiny reverse lamp. These pics show the process to modify the guards to make way for the biggest possible wheel clearance.

We have also cut the inner of the front guards to allow the BRZ garnishes to provide FUNCTIONAL venting. There will be black mesh here, and matte black paint on the chassis so it is not visible.

Update: 28-Oct-2013: 

Widebody guards have been affixed permanently and molding them into the stock metal bodywork has commenced. Doesn’t look pretty, but it’s unfortunately how it’s done  :S

Update: 13-Nov-2013: 

Visited Cameron’s bodyworks, where the guys have outdone themselves :P Josh has spent hours molding the guards and creating new bodylines. Getting the fuel filler is a bit tricky as it needs to be modified to allow the door to swing without fouling on the widebody. Further modifications will be done around this area to ensure that once it’s painted and a little thicker, it will still clear. Front inner guards still need to be made/modified. Rest of the car is getting close to being ready for paint.. Keen to see what it looks like with the wing on ;)

Popped in today to chat with Cameron about the colour scheme… Still undecided on what colour we will do the lips/skirts/wing etc.. I am sure I will work it out sooner or later  :P The wheels REALLY are crying to be replaced ASAP now.. Both sets of wheels on order are unfortunately showing no signs of arrival yet  :(Anyway, onto the pics..

 

The foglight recess is not quite how I wanted it yet, so that may need to be remade.. Wanted the foglight to sit perpendicular to the ground.. Will see what happens..

Update: 18-Dec-2013:

 

Car has now been primed and then subsequently painted. I checked on it today, but have changed my mind and decided I am going to change the colour of the car slightly (much to Cammo’s annoyance, as the paint job on it is done really nicely, almost a shame to sand it off and start again lol), watch this space, next year should show some nice changes  :) Purchased some of Luke’s old bits, and he was kind enough to drop off the Greddy exhaust, and I can’t wait to hear it   :D  Also the Tial BOV and wastegate have arrived, in purple/pink, Koyo alloy radiator (available to purchase from us as we have 3 spares!), and the Seibon Bonnet (also available to purchase through us, we have 1x spare).

OK, the latest updates bring mixed news.

 We have run into some dramas with the rims, which we won’t go in to, but for the moment, they can only be test fitted. Still not 100% sure on whether we will need to alter rim design further down the track. I guess nothing ever quite goes to plan, but here are some pics of the latest updates.

 

Here’s the Forgestar ones (19×11 and 19×9.5). Hard to tell but they are massive concave.

Here’s the Concave Concepts loaded into the SUV, transporting them to Cameron’s bodyworks (18×11 and 18×10 with 295/30/18 Advan AD050 tyres)

About to remove the old 19s:

Comparison of the old vs new. The new is actually a smaller rolling diameter, but wider footprint (by far):

Here you can see the new 18×10 fouls the oil cooler. We will work on a solution to this later.

Anyway, as I mentioned previously, time to start choosing a new colour.. Undecided yet  :P

Update: 01-Feb-2014:

 

Thanks to Cameron’s Bodyworks, the rims have been modified to suit. Special thanks to Koya Australia for modifying the rims to shave off an extra 4mm so they fit the fronts.Also big thanks to Bridgestone in Coopers plains for fitting and balancing the rims up for us.

Here’s a few pics of the beast in it’s current state.. The GTR has some competition for the ‘fattest car award’  :D

Update: 04-Mar-2014:

 

Another visit to Cameron’s bodyworks has seen the diffuser being further modified to accommodate the factory reverse/fog light combination lamp (which will of course house the Valenti unit). This has been a massive task in itself.

 

The new colour still hasnt been decided upon, but we should have updates on that this week :D

Update: 24-Apr-2014:

The color has finally been chosen, but we won’t be uploading pics of that until it’s finished. Here you can see the poor thing looking rather naked, stripped off once again of all it’s paint, and rubbed back, ready for the new coats.

The rear diffuser underwent yet more modifications to fit in with my fussy requests, much to the annoyance of the guys doing the work I am sure – Yep I am one of *those* customers.. Needed it perfect :)

With a “bit” of massaging, cutting and welding, Cameron’s bodyworks was able to fit the monster wheels and tyres inside the guards… Even at full lock – which for rims and tyres this wide, is quite an achievement!

We also have to thank MOTEC for suggesting the use of their new M150 ECU which is a complete plug and play unit. Also will be using the Motec Lambda wideband and controller. Not the cheapest solution out there, but it most assuredly is the best!

Thanks to 86Worx for the Cyberstork dashboard. We will be using these in conjunction with Cyberstork alloy gauge rings and needle bases. Will look awesome!

 

IMG_1203.jpg

The alloy upgrades will look like this pic, but obviously with the black/blue gauge face behind it.

We also have received the delivery of CF dash parts.

A flat bottom wheel has arrived also, thanks to ProSpeed Racing.

As the date to actually get it all assembled nears, our pile of parts has grown – including the GFB lightened pulley set (Thanks GFB!), RPS carbon clutch (thanks to MVP Motorsports) and a pair of subwoofer enclosures from Bayside Autostyling.

The subwoofer boxes will enclose a pair of Hertz 10″ subs.

The engine will be taking a different direction as well, with a twin charge setup (turbo and supercharged). We expect the power output to be around 600hp, so we will be pushing a bit harder now :)

Working alongside Forged Performance, the engine bay should end up looking something like this..

Update: 18-Jul-2014:

 

OK, so it has been quite some time since we posted an update. The car is now externally complete. Just waiting on the engine configuration to be finalised.  The paint is looking BEAUTIFUL and is all thanks to CAMERON’S BODYWORKS! So many countless hours went into getting the car where it is today, we can not thank them enough :) The final colour is bright white with a blue pearl.

 

 

Anyway, here are the much requested pictures :D

 

The pictures harldy show how blue the pearl is, but it looks outstanding in the sun!

A high volume sump from FullBlown Motorsports in the USA was imported specifically for the job. This sump is being modified by JHH to include flaps and gates for improved cornering oil pressure maintenance. We will also be running an Accumulator Sump, courtesy of Rob from GOOLS RACING.

After the body was finished, it was taken to SOLAR STYLE WINDOW TINTING to apply new 3M tint, as the old mirror tint no longer suited.

JHH Automotive has finished building the engine, which will be capable to produce in excess of 600hp reliably. It is sleeved, forged pistons, forged rods, upgraded valve train and a lot more.

The new twin charge kit from FORGED PERFORMANCE is underway, we show a picture of the manifold as it is being produced.

Here is a video (click here) and some pictures of the beast struggling to get into a driveway now that it is so wide. The car sits at just shy of 2 meters wide now, which makes it substantially wider than an R35 GTR and not far off the width of an Aventador ;)

Update: 10-Sep-2014:

Bullet superchargers has tracked down the big S5-335 monster supercharger, Kalen from Forged Performance has finished out manifold, and everything is now bolted together, ready to be dropped in.. 999 Automotive hooked us up some Whiteline bits, and Car mods Australia sourced us some Cusco suspension parts..

 

Here is the new supercharger:

Much bigger than the standard Sprintex 150:

Exhaust manifold by Forged Performance is beautiful!

Meanwhile back up in Brisbane, 999 Automotive supplied a whole catalogue of Whiteline suspension parts, and Car Mods Australia gave us a great deal on some Cusco arms. We also sourced some RacerX front LCA and rear UCA’s to get maximum adjustment out of the beast:

Next we got ready for the really exciting part… Everything was ready to put together the engine at GT Auto Garage!

As always, massive thankyou to all our sponsors and project contributors! We can’t wait to get this beast on the road!

 

Don’t forget that most of the parts listed in this build are available from us at http://www.streetfx.com.au or just mail us at [email protected] :)

 

 

Next stop – new paint, also Hertz have supplied some more Audio gear, and JHH have nearly finished the new motor  :)
