Every week this build gets more and more interesting as we dive deeper into the inner workings of the BRZ. For this installment, we peel back the layers of the engine to understand what we have to work with, and where it can be improved in relation to our initial build objectives. As with any good build, you define an objective based on what you have to work with. In order to properly understand what we had to work with first hand, it was necessary that we dive into the platform’s heart. This time, we turned to SCR Performance because of their intimate knowledge of Subaru drivetrains, as well as their reputation as top engine builders. We knew they would give an accurate assessment of what areas we’d need to address as the build progresses.
Revvolution and Elite Auto Salon (EAS) are excited to announce our second annual Automotive Lifestyle Event for 2014. The car event highlights Colorado’s car culture by bringing together automotive businesses and organizations from around the state and surrounding areas. This year’s event, being held at the same venue as last year, Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colorado, promises to be bigger, better, and harder hitting.. To ensure not to conflict with one of our other primary events, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and to steer clear of the daily June rain showers, this year’s event will be held on May 18th, 2014.
Last week, we introduced the Revvolution.com Project BRZ, and outlined the partners involved and our overall build objectives. As you will recall, the goal for the Revvolution Project BRZ is a progressive performance build that is oriented toward high-performance street driving and moderate track applications. This week we will dive into the project with hands-on feedback as we outline our first objective: strengthening the chassis.
We’ve mentioned it a few times before, but consider this your formal introduction to the 2014 Subaru Revvolution build! You may have noticed during our platform overview series that we mentioned getting our hands on a BRZ of our own to play with; and now we want to make sure we share our vision for the build, and introduce all of the partners involved in this massive undertaking.
We focus on where we like to spend the majority of our time with any car⎯the interior. Our initial impression of the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S found many similarities in platform, performance and even styling, but the interior trim between the two cars does offer up some key differences.
