Q: Hi Ken, I’m a long time fan of your drifting and big fan of GReddy. How did the GReddy FRS and Ken Gushi team come to be? Also how is it working with GReddy? Good luck in 2013!

KG: Thank you very much! I have known the Greddy guys for a while now and to be working with them now is such an honor. Scion Racing has always wanted to work with Greddy and with the debut of the FR-S, it was the perfect combo!

           * Formula D Rd.1, Long Beach is April 12-13th.

for more see the greddyracing twitter and greddyracing instagram.
Over the "off season" the GReddy Team has been hard at work revising and updating the GReddy Performance X Scion Racing Drift FR-S.  The 2012 FR-S chassis and engine was stripped down, painted and refreshed for the 2013 Formula Drift Championships.  The car will not only look different on the outside, with a GReddy + Rocket Bunny FR-S Aero kit and our new 2013 graphics, but under the hood as well, with another, more powerful, evolution to our flat 4-cylinder Formula D spec Turbo Kit.  It will be exciting to see our driver, Ken Gushi attacking the tight Long Beach street course once again...

Preview of the upcoming FR-S / BRZ Turbo Kit

As many of you might have seen online, we have been hard at work, developing a GReddy Tuner Turbo Kit for the Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ / Toyota 86.  The prototype kit debut at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon. After extensive R&D in Japan on our black USA Spec. Scion FR-S (with it's GReddy X Rocket Bunny Aero,) we have doubled up testing on a special, 2nd, local Southern California vehicle....

And who better to help us test out the new turbo kit and put it through it's paces,  then a person who has extensive experience driving the FR-S; Ken Gushi our Formula Drift pro-driver.  Recently we installed another prototype Turbo Kit on Ken's personal red FR-S.  (for more on Ken's previous upgrades, see the SR Blog.)

Now here is a preview of some of the details of the kit:  Top-mounted GReddy T518Z Turbocharger, 4-1 SUS header-type exhaust manifold with dual flex pipes, large SUS down pipe, free flow Airinx intake, direct aluminum intercooler piping routing, and efficient lightweight tube and fin front-mounted Intercooler.   (*also compatible with front-mounted GReddy Circuit Spec Oil Cooler Kit)

 *More details regarding tuning, performance, pricing and availability coming in the near future...
