FR-S : September 30, 2019
We’ve built & tuned many force inducted variations of the BRZ/FR-S/GT86 — mainly turbocharged — but have always wanted to see and hear this exact combination. There’s just something undeniably cool about hearing the whine of a positive-displacement supercharger and the rumble of a Subaru coming from the same car.
So, suffice it to say, we were pretty excited when Travis brought us his 2013 Scion FR-S, which features an Edelbrock Performance E-Force packaged Eaton TVS1320 supercharger, unequal length header and full exhaust, Injector Dynamics ID1050X fuel injectors, AEM Performance Electronics 340lph in-tank fuel pump, and other supporting modifications.
Once the minor mechanical work wrapped in the shop, Charlie strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom Flex Fuel calibration via EcuTek Technologies Ltd. The results? 285.38whp & 226.57lbft on 93 octane, and 318.62whp & 247.16lbft on E85! Solid outcome for the combination — it has got to an absolute blast to drive.
