      We just got off the dyno with our FRS. This is our Stage 1 with a bigger turbo. Our kit is designed to run anything from a Gt28, Gt30, Gt35r. We decided to skip the 30r and get get straight to business with the GTX35R.

      This kit is still in the prototype stages and will likely be our stage 3 with upgraded intercooler, bigger injectors and so on.

      Our Stage 2 will consist of the Gtx30r. We have gathered enough data from this project that we can now start building those kits for those who wish for big power.

      Surprisingly the stock motor is holding up for now. We are working on a built motor for when this one fails. I am very impressed with it in stock form.

      Here's the setup


      FBM BRZ/FRS Stage 1

      - FBM EL Turbo manifold
      - Garrett GTX35r with Tial V-band housing
      - FBM Aluminum intercooler Piping with couplers
      - FBM 3" V-band Downpipe
      - FBM 550hp Intercooler
      - FBM Intake Pipe
      - FBM Dump tube
      - Tial 50mm BOV
      - Tial 44mm Wastegate
      - FBM 1000cc injectors
      - FBM 270LPH Pump
      - FBM Dual slim fans
      - Clutch masters FX400

      Those big turbo cars seem miserable to drive.. I'd like to make power before 7k rpm please.

      Does the 6 M/T hold up with that much power or were changes made?

      Saw that, too. 5200 is when it spools? Takes longer than an F40

      Why is it miserable to drive? I love sudden abrupt mid rpm range power. It's the best because you get 2 different cars. Something that's ecenomical and as long as you have the RPM range to support it you never fall out of boost between shifts. I've owned a turbo Honda tuned standalone and I tried to blow mine up. 18psi 411whp was a damn blast on the freeway and it would not explode. I ended up selling the car and the buyer came out to leak-down compression test it and it was still 170psi across the board after 20k miles of abuse.

      It's a japanese car not a european car. They're simply built better and they don't spend manufacturing costs developing odd 8 sided allen head bolts and funky assembly designs that take gobs of man hours.

      Triple square bolts work very well for their intended purpose and they do have one, far superior to allen bolts. And your crazy if you think Japanese engines are superior to euro engines in a mechanical aspect. Better electrical connectors and higher quality plastics for the cooling system yes but better internals no way.

      I heard that Subaru motors have weak valve rockers...

      I always find it funny that people who own a car from the lowest-rung European manufacturers have the most to say about the superiority of "European" cars. Just because a Jetta comes from the same continent as a Bugatti doesn't mean all "European" cars can be grouped as a whole

      What piston ringlands?!?

      To the poster above asking about the trans. If this 6 speed is anything like the STi 6 speed, it will withstand these power levels. The engine on the other hand? See above tongue in cheek comment about ringlands The Subaru motors have had their fair share of issues at high horsepower levels there.

      That may be the funniest thing I've ever read in a thread about Subaru engines.

      Here are at least 23 people who certainly wouldn't agree with you.

      IN!!!!

      It actually looks like the aftermarket companies have been getting better with the turbo locations. I wonder if you can go twin turbo with a smaller set up to better control the lag.

      That thing needs a more solid engine mount. It looks like with a few high spirited drives it gonna blow itself of the engine bay.

      That's really cool. It's awesome to see what people are accomplishing with this car. However, I'll echo the comments about the turbo lag. That car's going to be a b!tch to get power out of on the road.
      Scotch. It's time.

      Pretty much the same power/powerband a 2.0L Evo or WRX or GTI would make with this turbo and those mods, not sure why everyone is so surprised just because it is the BRZ.
