Amazing Videos Of An LS1 FR-S With Velocity Stacks Running

Warning: watching these videos of an LS1 FR-S with velocity stacks running may be not work safe: nobody in the office will get any work done for the rest of the day because you’ll have them on loop.

We’ve seen Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ engine swaps before, and V8 swaps, and even a Chevy LS2 powered BRZ, but this is the first video of a V8 FR-S to surface.

The Scion FR-S LS1 engine swap resides in Japan, but the motor was sourced from a C5 Corvette, according to Midnight Roulette. With individual throttle bodies, the engine should be much more powerful than the 350-hp the LS1 had in the stock Corvette. Individual throttle bodies, or velocity stacks, are the ultimate air intake upgrade and increase throttle response as well as horsepower, so when the throttle is cracked on this V8 FR-S, it cracks like a whip.

The Chevy V8 FR-S also has a custom widebody kit that was developed with TRA-Kyoto, the company that builds the Rocket Bunny widebody kits for the FR-S and BRZ. ┬áThis widebody kit has a much more clean look than the racecar-style Rocket Bunny kit. Brand new Work Emotion D9R wheels finish the car’s gorgeous body.
