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...
