    Default Toyota 86 - 2014 Upgrades

    A little more than a year on, the changes to the Toyota 86 have only been minor, and it looks like the trend will be continuing into 2014.

    The 86 Tada edition features the following upgrades...

    18" bbs alloy rims
    Revised rear damper settings
    Better handling
    Dunlop Direzza Tyres




    There are no changes as yet to the engine, but there are plenty of rumours floating around that a FA25 is well and truly in development stages and is expected to make an appearance in the Toytoa 86 sometime soon.

    Whilst allot of the car community criticises the engine choice and somewhat mediorce performance, the engineers at Toyota are still celebrating its phenominal success world wide. A large propotion of owners are in the 20-30 age bracket, though it is still proving to be a popular mid life crisis car too with sales between the 45-55 age group.

    Time will tell what happens, but this is the latest announcement to be made to the media group within Australia.

    Wheels are still meh though. By not changing the engine yet depreciation will stay the same so thats good for people that bought the first gen.

    Wheels are a personal choice... people will always change them anyhow so IMO they don't really matter

    2.5L wouldn't be more weight, all the EJ20 and 25's use the same casting and are the same external dimensions and being Subaru I would say they would do the same with the FA series. I would also say they would increase the bore more so than the stroke for more capacity, again much the same as the EJ series.

    they can only bore the FA20 to get an extra ~0.2L. they can only stroke it to get an extra ~0.2L. they WILL have to bore and stroke it to get 0.5L extra capacity and it will be pushing it to get the same external dimensions. i am quite sure they will have a completely new block to be able to get the 2.5L safely and reliably.


    personally i am hoping all they do is facelift it and that is all. it will save me thousands in the future if they make a 2.5L version. i dont want to have to buy a brand new engine to modify for FI and swap in....
