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.
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 F80 is a mind-blowing concept that was penned by Adriano Raeli. Raeli is a young Italian who moved to California to study transportation design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His portfolio contains several interesting designs: the Alva Roadboard is a lightweight, electric take on an adult skateboard, and the Alfa Romeo Azzurra is a futuristic cross between a Maserati and a Jaguar.

We thought Myles might have been just another basic Honda fan. He talked of owning several Acura Integras over the years, drives a beat up old Civic with over 200,000 miles on it and had the audacity to think those "wrong wheel drive, torqueless wonders" could be competitive in many forms of motorsport. Myles has indeed had the nerve to use his Integras in road racing, autocross and drag racing. Boasting high horsepower numbers, while conveniently omitting torque numbers, all while trying to outrun/outrace vastly superior cars was clearly part of the basic Honda fanboy delusion that Myles was consumed by.
