Throughout the past few articles you’ve learned about the improvements we’ve made to the strength of the engine, and beefing up the fuel and cooling systems. This install we reveal why all of those modifications were necessary: forced induction.
One of the biggest let downs about the BRZ/FR-S was the lack of a turbocharged option. It seemed so simple, just pull the motor from the WRX and, voila, boost! Instead we were left with a car that, while well balanced, just wanted enthusiasts begging for more. Thankfully there is a healthy aftermarket that was practically frothing at the mouth at the opportunity to add forced induction.

As you recently read, we’ve completed modifying the cylinder heads and valve train to make sure the FA20 has sufficient and efficient breathing ability. In this installment, we’re going to pull back the curtain on what was done to modify the cooling, lubrication and fuel/spark systems to withstand the power and reliability we expect to achieve with this build.

Welcome back; it’s been a while! We’ve been hard at work getting down to business with our Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, both part of the Pikes Peak Speed Week. While we were running around losing our minds, SCR Performance was hard at work making great progress with the BRZ build. Last time, we covered what it takes to build a bottom end stout enough to handle our power demands. This week we’re diving into the cylinder heads to see how SCR improved the breathing capacity of the FA20/4U-GSE.

The first time you hold an event in a new location, there is always the concern of if the fans will enjoy it and, more important, will they show up? Those fears were allayed for Shift-S3ctor and Revvolution as more than 3,000 spectators poured through the gates at the inaugural Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack by OB Prestige Auto. Featuring half-mile roll race and trap speed competitions, we knew it would attract a lot of attention–not only from the spectators, but also from enthusiasts and the race community as well. With over 90 competitors (per day) averaging more than 750 hp, we knew this was going to be a killer event.

Last week we gave you a behind the scenes look at the magic SLVA was conjuring up with the creation of the wide-body for our BRZ. In this installment, we change our focus to the drivetrain build as we’ve had lots of inquiries into what will motivate this beast.
