If you’re building an FR-S and want power, you need a turbo kit. Swapping out stock parts like the intake and exhaust will get your FR-S moving, but if you want to start blowing the doors off of
Genesi Genesises Turbo Hyundais and new edge Mustangs, you have to go turbo.
TR3 performance claims that their bolt on stage 1 FR-S turbo kit makes 300-horsepower with a 60 trim turbo. The only major notification to the car is swapping the oil pan, but other than that the kit is bolt on. But while 300-horsepower is fun, 450-horsepower sounds like a lot more fun. When the owner brought back his FR-S turbo you see here, TR3 made it from a fun street car to an absolute monster.
This just proves that you don’t need an engine swap in your FR-S to make big power. The 2JZ swaps we’ve seen are impressive, but building the little 2.0-liter engine to insane power levels is even more remarkable.
