    Default Engineers and 86s

    Hey there guys, Im going to be assembling my new 86 till the end of the year, possibily start of next then want to get it registered legit...

    I should be running:
    JDM JTV shell (already complied)
    GZE with small front mount
    Coilovers in front
    JDM brakes with slotted rotors and good street/track pads
    Factory diff (Ill probably put slotted rotors on the back too)(LSD)
    2.25" exhaust with cat etc (hopefully relatively quiet)
    TRD blues in the back
    adjustable panard rod

    uhhhh, other stuff

    Anyway, first of all anyone got a car engineered with something similar to that in it?

    Second is all of it legal (Ive heard coilovers are okay, apparently that paint the height it was tested at)

    Third, anyone know any engineers that are reasonable? (Both price and Severity)


    Cheers guys



    PS if anyone in canberra wants some 86 bits chuck me a PM as I am planning on parting out a lot of bits

    Hey man,

    What part of Canberra are you in?

    The word is that John wilson is the best engineer to go to in the ACT. Many modifiers use him......

    What parts are you getting rid of? Do you have any JDM (disc) handbrake cables?

    That would be me Only problem is that I am moving in a couple of months, happy to fly back down though to finalise the report and things if you are willing to pay for flights etc. I think Townsville - Canberra return can be done from around $250.

    Cheers
