Yup, another of these threads. Awesome power
Here's a little teaser of Accelerated Performance's new turbo kit for the BRZ/FRS.
Stock Header, BRZ-400 Turbo Kit @ 20PSI, OMNI 4 BAR Map Sensor, DW65 Pump, DW900 Injectors, Exedy Clutch !
In to see comments of how idiots would get a Mustang Boss now because its a "better option" for the money
This is very impressive. Wonder who will break the 500whp barrier first!
Do they mention internal work at all?

Like I said, I'll take the car designed for 450 hp. And yes, I'm very sure the Boss's powerband is better for track duty.
With the turbo hanging off the stock exhaust manifolds, and stock compression; this is dyno queen stuff, just to say they were first to do it. Not really usable; on a track it'd explode, and the turbo location to be compatible with the stock header is undoubtedly impeding boost response.
The newer turbo Subarus (starting with the current-gen Legacy GT and Forester diesel and eventually on the next WRX) don't use the old header/up-pipe configuration, they put the turbo down low and in front. Once people develop manifolds, this will be the desirable setup on this car too. There's just more room up there and shorter piping distances.

But there's no doubt that a car with factory 500+ hp (CTS-V for example) is going to be an overall better vehicle in terms of balance and reliability than any tuner car with double the OEM power.
Relocate the battery to the trunk, and there you go relieve some weight off that super heavy front end
What car is exactly designed for 450hp? With a good driver this BRZ would own the 302 on a road course you know that..
Having said that, it's fun to see how much power people can get out of these cars, but personally, I think 250 whp would be perfect in a car like this.
Here we go again. The Toyobaru is ruining the Car Lounge.
Can we all just agree that if Subaru releases a naturally aspired 240-260hp version of the BRZ with a screaming redline, at a $30k-32k, that it will finally be a universally cool car?
