Updated look on 2016 FR-S.- Installed 2017+ Tail Lights + Pass side Fujitsubo Exhaust Hole Cover.
Owned it for 6 years, since picking it up with 6 miles on 12/31/2015. Had tons of plans but those manifested into mainly I/H/E/E85. Haven't done as much as I wanted.
Time for that to change. Currently deciding between turbo build or K24 swap, not sure which, leaning towards K24, but either way it is a go.

Also, the 1JZ swap on MK3 supra is done. WIth stock ECU plus intercooler & downpipe, running about 9 PSI.
Got RSR springs which aren't low enough for me, plus got WedsSport TC105X 17x9+25 all around with 255/40/17.

Lastly.........This one was tough....
I was on the fence between GRC, GR86, or GR Supra... Which is why I'm on this forum. .But 2 things, 1) I couldn't wait as the GRC wasn't available yet for me to order. 2) wouldn't come in the color I want this year.

So I placed an order for a '23 GR86 Trueno Blue Base model, added the gold 17" wheels, GR Exhaust, GR Shift Knob, Black lugs and wheel locks, PPF, and all weather mats.
I still plan to get a GRC at some point, but it will probably be '24 or '25. I'll still be on here as I'd love to stay on top of the car, the ins/outs, plus I plan to visit GRC/E210 meets here in DFW.
