Scion FRS 521hp at 20psi. Stock Motor.
 
And it seems to be holding up the punishment well so far. Very impressed with the FA20 Engine. I wonder how long the rest of the drivetrain holds up.

¨Car has over 150 dyno runs from testing a bunch of stuff. I would say roughly..

50 runs @ 250-300hp
50 @ 300-380hp
30 @ 420-450hp
20 @ 480 - 520hp

This is just a guesstimate but, we haven't been nice to this car that's for sure.¨

I have a feeling the frs/brz/gt86 will be the next tuner's paradise. Definantly considering one for my next car.

Install new engine every 5K miles.

I don´t give a crap about the name BUT I really wish that we could get the Euro-Japanese Headlights. I do prefer the Subaru though because it comes with more stuff. But it is more expensive.

521 HP and 400 ft-lbs. of torque? Put wings on it and watch it take off.

They look fantastic, and from what I've heard, they're a "real driver's car".

I'm content with my M though. :)

However, if these came turbo-charged, and still sold for ~$26,000 brand new, I'd probably have highly considered a white one.
But N/A, 200hp, 0-60 in nearly 7 seconds from what I understand? No thanks. Part of what makes it a "driver's car" in my opinion, is the power.

test drove the FRS over the weekend for sh** and giggles. EXTREMELY impressive. i had to keep the revs up to get power in a straight line but the entire chassis is made for corners. the 6 speed gearbox was heaven to work and throw around in corners. turned traction off and sport mode on, it was fantastic.

the R&D that went into this thing is nothing short of amazing. well-balanced, simple, focused. What did Jezzah say about the 1M? (applies well here)...engine in the front, manual gearbox in the middle and drive going to the rear. Page 1 Chapter 1 of the Petrosexual handbook. hell, he even named it top gear car of the year 2012.

I recommend anyone to go and take it for a spin before the "its a scion" comes across your mind. highly considering it to replace my M if I move to NYC.

for $15k, its a great car. for $25k, keep it.

This car with lackobfturbo would not scare tge piss out of me.
But I think that this would feel faster than other bodies supra.

It's not hard to figure out why they it... Scion isn't doing as well as Toyota would like... New car to inject interest and excitement

I don't think it's even close to the 1M. The motor is uninspiring at best. The handling and chassis seem very well balanced and as if they have great potential, but it's a bit hard to tell with the awful tires the car comes with. Brakes- were not all that great. And the gearshift was better than a BMW but not as good as a Honda.

Cars like the S2000 deserve much higher praise than the FR-S/BR-Z.

I'm excited for what the BR-Z has started though, I think we'll see more competitive cars on the market very soon.

The awful tires are for a reason. It's a born drift car.
