Default Cosworth announces Power Packages for Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S with up to 380 hp [w/video] [UPDATE]

Filed under: Aftermarket, Coupe, Performance, Videos, Scion, Subaru, Toyota



Cosworth stands on the list of the most famous engine tuners in the world with its DFV engine engine dominating Formula One for a time in the '70s. So when it teases plans to take on the FA20 engine from Subaru and Toyota found in the BRZ, Scion FR-S and Toyota GT86 abroad, our interest is indeed piqued. Cosworth is promising to take the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine from its current 200 horsepower all the way to 325 hp and even 380 hp in a future track version through a series of staged Power Packages. At the moment, only the first stage is available that takes the mill to a potent 230 hp.

Cosworth says that its new strategy is to offer its upgrades in kits rather than individually so that it can be sure that everything works and fits when owners receive it. The Stage 1 Power Package emphasizes helping the FA20 breathe better and includes a nearly complete replacement for the stock exhaust system. There is a sports exhaust with four-inch, diagonally cut, polished tips and Y-shaped muffler, an overpipe front pipe with a spherical resonator and a new manifold header that is 22 percent lighter the standard unit. In addition to that, the kit comes with a software reflash, low temperature thermostat, Cosworth badge and plaque.

The Stage 1 kit is available now for $2,799, but it only includes a cat-back exhaust. Stage 1.2 includes the overpipe and Stage 1.3 incorporates the ceramic-coated manifold. Autoblog reached out to Cosworth, whose spokesperson Kevin Martin confirmed that "Power Package kit components will not be available separately, as Cosworth cannot guarantee their performance levels in isolation."

Cosworth has also released a video showing off the exhaust upgrades. Scroll down to watch it and read the full release, below.

UPDATE: Cosworth has confirmed Stage 1 pricing and provided additional context, which we've added to the story above.Continue reading Cosworth announces Power Packages for Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S with up to 380 hp [w/video] [UPDATE]
