thanks! yeah, that's the new aluminum IM. the 2017+ manual transmission 86s and brzs have this one because it's part of that massive 5hp/5tq increase the automatics still have the original engine setup which has the black plastic IM, like my old frs.
i like it, i think the first gen looks a little more aggressive up front though, and the rear of the new one reminded me of a civic when i first saw them but it's not terrible. i wouldn't give up mine for one though.
got to fully clean the rpf1s for the first time today, scrubbed the barrels and rear of the spokes, and threw them on...
A stock body FRS looks so good, you don't need for a kit for it like you might for a CG. These are aging very nicely.....shit it's been a decade already. It's kinda sad to see everyone chopping these up to go widebody.
