What got you into cars:
I’ve been fascinated by anything and everything with an engine for as long as I can remember. Watching drift events and Formula 1 on the television definitely played a role in arousing my interest, but it’d have to be the automotive events which I attended with friends that cemented my passion.

What’s unique about your car:
I’m a tuner at heart and believe a car can always be bettered. Less than 48 hours after taking ownership of my car, I drove it to a garage and had a cold air intake installed! Additionally, my Toyota 86 TRD is equipped with a full exhaust system, from the unequal headers right up to the GReddy Cat-Back. For added stability and a wider stance, it’s also got BC Racing Coil Overs and a stage 2 ECU system tuned by OFT.

What upgrades do you have in the pipeline:
In an attempt to squeeze out more power, I’m looking at upgrading the internals of the engine. I want to do something unique and not go down the mainstream route of either turbocharging or supercharging the engine.

Name one car you’d swap yours for:
It’s probably going to sound clichéd but I love my car so very much that it’s hard to think of anything else! If I were to be extremely picky, I’d probably swap it for a Toyota Supra 2JZ!
