AVO Turboworld Stage 1 Turbo Kit - Scion FRS / Subaru BRZ:
front-mounted Stage 1 turbocharger kit for the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S
is finally here! The turbocharger kit is designed from top to bottom
specifically to the FR-S and BRZ, and consists of the all the parts
necessary to bolt the kit up to the car.
We utilize an AVO18/49 turbocharger that mounts up under the front of
the engine via our stainless steel unequal exhaust manifold, and then it
bolts up to the stock exhaust with our polished stainless steel turbo
outlet (also referred to as a downpipe).
Cooling the pressurized air is an aluminum bar and plate front mount
intercooler which uses black piping throughout, mechanical oil
scavenging pump, oil reservoir tank, and all necessary water and oil
hoses and fittings.
This turbokit has been designed to bolt up to the stock air intake box
and to the stock exhaust system. We have spent a lot of time ensuring it
will work with the standard fueling system for a complete bolt on and
go setup. The beauty of the system is that it looks very stock from
above! The FMIC has been specifically designed to fit with the standard
bumper without trimming as well, and on FR-S models would be be
difficult to see unless you are looking for it.
So what can you expect from this kit?
From our testing, you will see anywhere from 220 to 250whp on pump gas,
dependent entirely upon the quality of the pump gas. We saw 230whp (276
crank hp) and 197 ft/lbs of torque at 5-6 psi on 92 octane gas literally
from a nearby Chevron gas station. This was with the stock airbox with
an AVO high-flow panel filter installed, and a stock secondary cat in
place. All these figures were reached on the stock fueling system as
