STS Goals for the BRZ

They are currently in the process of building a single turbo system for the BRZ. STS expects to add anywhere from 100-150rwhp, ending up around 275-300rwhp, yet still retaining the reliability of the vehicle. Their patented, rear-mount turbocharger systems should allow us to hit our goal. People love to drive the BRZ but the only real knock they have with it is that it is a bit under powered. They believe we can easily fix that.

Installing their remote-mount turbocharging system will not only reduce engine bay heat buildup, but also improve the fuel economy of the BRZ. Based on prior experience, they are hoping to improve fuel economy by about 15%, which is remarkable as we are also adding enough power to pin occupants to their seats during hard acceleration. Having 54 percent of the weight up front and 46 percent in the rear, the rear mount turbo system will also help with the weight distribution, making for some pretty exciting cornering on the track or on those winding country roads.

Additional Upgrades to Boost Overall Performance:

  • Wilwood brakes (6 piston front/ 4 piston rear)
  • KW fully adjustable coil overs
  • Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires (265/35 ZR18)
  • HD Clutch wheels (18x9.0 all the way around)
  • White Line Sway bars

Their BRZ is well into the transformation process. This transformation will not only produce an incredibly fun car to drive, but also produce a new STS Turbo Kit as the result. Stay tuned for progress updates and the actual numbers, they will be impressive!

If you already have a Subaru BRZ / Scion FR-S, or are thinking of picking one up, stay tuned and contact us about getting you in line for what will undoubtedly transform your 86 from a fun car to a wildly crazy fun car, that will put a smile on your face each time you drive it.

We bought the BRZ knowing it would be a great platform for a little extra horsepower. When we got it on the rack, we immediately looked to the back where the muffler was located. It was no surprise when we saw this huge thing…


Removing the muffler gave us plenty of room to build and mount the turbo assembly…


We removed the front bumper came to see what space we had to work with for the front mount intercooler. Under the hood in the engine compartment, the turbo system does NOT add heat and does NOT look cluttered. With our system there is NO need to modify any of the factory cooling system components.


Since the turbo being remote mount, we are able to obtain cooler intake temperatures than other forced induction options. This equates to better performance and efficiency.


Getting the prototype installed and fitted on the BRZ.

Below you can see the entire assembly and how it utilizes all the factory heat shielding and exhaust hangers. You can also see the turbo assembly does not hang lower than the factory muffler. Ground clearance is NOT compromised.


The air filter is located behind the rear bumper where it is protected and has plenty of dry, clean air available. We also provide a simple filter to further protect it from the elements. We have even taken this car through an automatic car wash with NO problems!


Our preliminary HP numbers are very promising at this point as you will see in the dyno graph below. With our water/methanol injection system we are shooting for 300+ rwhp on pump gas! We are currently changing the turbo size that will make our base turbo system capable of 450+rwhp! All of our systems will be shipped with this upgraded turbo.

The compressed air goes through our custom size piping up through the transmission tunnel where it does NOT affect ground clearance. The charge pipes are exposed to a lot of ambient airflow to fight heat soaking by dissipating as much heat as possible. With the proper sized charge pipes, this little car has great response!


Stock muffler vs. STS Turbo assembly. We utilize the wastegate dump as the passenger side tip to retain the dual exhaust look. Our kit also includes 2 dual wall stainless steel tips which look MUCH better than the factory tips. Shown above is the turbo system with our optional turbine jacket installed. These are just a few highlights of the turbo system. A typical installation will take 12-16 hours depending on options.
