New Product FR-S / BRZ Tuner Turbo Kit

       FR-S / BRZ TUNER TURBO KIT  - P/N 11510094 - MSRP $5200.00

  GReddy Performance Products is excited to announce the release of the highly anticipated T518Z Tuner Turbo Kit for the 2013- Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. With extensive testing both in Japan and the USA, this turbo kit was designed to enhance the overall performance for daily drivers and weekend racers. An ideal turbo sizing maintains the vehicles balanced driver feel, by maintaining good low-end response with the factory engine components. But the most noticeable improvements can be noticed on the factory power-band's dip in mid-range torque and at high RPM top-end power.

GReddy dyno test showed a +93.5whp / +68.7ft-lbs increase at 7psi on a stock 2013 Scion FR-S with factory injectors and fuel pump, just adding a *GReddy-tuned EcuTek ecu, and a *GReddy Evo3 70mm exhaust, - (* not Included) (Note: tuning for more power will require additional fuel enrichment upgrades) But even more importantly, the mid-range torque from 3150-4750 RPMs are significantly improved over the stock torque curve

The Tuner Turbo Kit includes: a top-mounted GReddy T518Z 10cm2 actuator turbo on an equal length 4-1 SUS header-type exhaust manifold with dual flex joints, SUS downpipe and cat-delete, free-flow Airinx AY-SB intake, short-routing intercooler piping, Type-40E front-mounted intercooler with cast end-tanks and all the necessary brackets, heat-shields, hoses, clamps, and gaskets.

Round 2 - Road Atlanta 2013

 Monday Coverage from Formula Drift #FDATL:


Unfortunately our trip to Formula Drift Rd.2 Atlanta this weekend, did not go at all as planned.  Although Ken Gushi and GReddy Racing X Scion Racing Drift FR-S was in top form during Thursday and Friday practice, the results were less then ideal.  The car showed great speed and lots of smoke.  But it was a mechanical failure late in the last practice session right before Friday qualifying, that ended the race weekend early for the team.

The Team rallied to rectify the problem in time for Ken make a qualifying attempt, but just didn't have enough time with the new knock-out style qualifying system. 
It was a great disappointment for the entire team not have the Drift FR-S running on Saturdays for the fans, but Ken made the best of the bad situation to take time to visit with fans in the pits.  We will strive to do much better in the next round, Rd.3 Palm Beach, FL at the end of this month.  May 31-June 1st.

   Congratulations to FDATL evnet winners: 1st Daigo Saito, 2nd Darren McNamara, 3rd Vaughn Gittin

Here's some footage we found on youtube of Ken practicing in Atlanta:

New GReddy Blow-Off Valve FV will soon be here

   GReddy BOV FV p/n 11501665

GReddy is proud to introduce a new generation of "Push Type Blow Off Valve," the GReddy BOV FV.  The "FV" stand for Floating Valve, and it is this breakthrough in design that produces quicker valve response, increased valve travel, and improved resistance to premature valve lift and boost leak.  The unique floating valve design incorporates a revised adjustable dual spring system and diaphragm ventilation, while maintaining the advantages of the previous model's push valve structure and heat resistant silicone diaphragm and valve ratio. This allows the springs and diaphragm to better control the valve and boost.  By relocating one spring under and keeping one over the diaphragm, it makes the need for spring pre-load less dependent on idle and light boost situations and more on keeping the valve closed under boost.  The result is our best performing GReddy Blow-off Valve yet!  Another improvement includes an adjustable, sliding top hat, to adjust the hose fitting location, without complete dis-assembly.  The FV also keeps its overall mounting and outlet dimensions, which means it is compatible with the industry standard two-bolt GReddy BOV flange and can easily replace existing Type RS & RZ applications, as well as use the same optional RS and RZ outlet adapters. (Click here for more details) 

Please inquire with your favorite Authorized GReddy Dealer or our online store, ShopGReddy.com for pre-ordering. 

And if you are looking for something rare, check out these ShopGReddy.com Exclusives, Limited Edition JDM Color-variations. Only 100 made in each color and only 25 imported to the USA...  Same FV valve, but in a special Silver/Red or Charcoal/Red color scheme.
