      After tuning on low boost, the FR-S was fitted with a Haltech boost control kit and the boost was raised to 9psi. The result was an impressive 324 WHP on our Dyno Dynamics dyno!
      For reference, this FR-S made 153WHP stock on our dyno (baseline dyno).

      This turbocharged FR-S build consists of:
      · Dynosty Scion FR-S Subaru BRZ Single Turbo Kit with Tial GT2871R Turbocharger
      · Tial MVR 44mm Wastegate and Tial Blow Off Valve
      · Injector Dynamics 850cc Fuel Injectors running E85
      · Haltech Platinum Sport standalone engine management
      · Haltech Wideband and Haltech Advanced Boost Control System
      · Dyno Tune by Hal at Dynosty
      · Traklite 18" Wheels
      · BC Racing Suspension

      That torque curve is mighty impressive. The GT2871R is a great turbo - glad to see it put to good use here. I wonder how much the kit will cost.

      I'm sure that car is an absolute blast... but what's the cost of that kit?

      Kit + car + install.. are we talking Boss 302 money?

      I would imagine the kit is around $6-7K installed.

      Looks like a conservative tune with spool low enough for street use. And that torque curve with 20ft-lbs deviation for something like 5000RPM span

      This car wasn't engineered for this much horsepower.

      Not sure if you're serious, but that's to the wheels which means it's making about the same torque (close 300 ft/lbs) as the current M3 while weighting about 1000 lbs less.

      I'd imagine it's more than that. The drivetrain will probably need some type of reinforcing from all the torque. Also, I'm not sold on the long term reliability of a non-factory turbocharged high compression Subaru engine.

      Your stage 1 1.8T runs more than double the boost this car does through the midrange and in fact does NOT make 250 ft/lbs at the wheels, it makes around 250 ft/lbs at the crank. This car on 9 psi also made 325 whp in the process which is impressive. That's a lot of flow for a 2.0L engine on such low boost. This thing on 14 psi or so is going to blow down well over 400 whp.

      This thing with 14 psi is going to blow up.

      I've seen plenty stage 1 1.8t's hit 250wtq, yes it is a double the boost. We don't know what this car can handle so to say 14psi will do, 400whp is a bit optimistic, since most NA cars will not be able to handle that much boost

      Thank you for your deep seated knowledge on the subject of this brand new engine in a brand new car that has never been tested in such a way. Where did you get your degree in engineering and how did you get the chance to work with one of these cars under conditions such as that?
