The OEM clutch pedal return spring on the GT86/FR-S/BRZ is quite stiff. It makes the clutch pedal feel soft and unnatural. By using the reduction spring of your choosing (this kit comes with 2 springs of different spring rates) the clutch pedal will have a more direct / mechanical feel.

Will this spring kit fit my car?

Great improvement, highly recommended. I've driven manuals for 40 years (have an ND MX5 and recently moved on from an I30N) and found the stock clutch operation took some attention to be smooth when taking off and shifting from first to second. The %66 spring has eliminated the extra attention required and clutch operation now feels natural. Installation was fiddly, cramped and frustrating on a RHD car but I got there with easy to google "how to" instructions and video.
The clutch spring resulted in a much better clutch feel. I went with the heaver setting and its certainly not too heavy (still way lighter than my Porsche). It wasn't too hard to install (it did involve removing the clutch pedal assembly), though it was tight working in the footwell. Overall, a great product.
even being a new manual driver, i could tell how bad the stock spring is. installing the 66% changes the clutch to a linear travel instead of the stock bouncing your foot off the engagement point. With how cheap this is its a no brainer to get it
The standard clutch grab point was quite vague. I used the 66% reduction spring and immediately felt the difference. The clutch grab point was more obvious which makes it easier to rev match. It feels a bit heavier but so far it is still good for regular traffic.
Took about an hour of installation for me. The instructions for RHD cars can be found on FT86 forum.
P.S: I am in Malaysia and the purchasing experience was great. Only took about a week for it to arrive.
The videos on YouTube for the installs about clutch springs are almost all left hand drive cars, the only way to install the spring in a RHD car is to remove the clutch pedal assembly. It’s not too difficult but definitely not a 5 minute job. Haven’t tried the 66% spring yet but 33% feel decent.
