The new Scion FR-S, alongside of the new Subaru BRZ, is one of the most highly anticipated low-cost enthusiast oriented vehicles to hit the market. With its heritage and engineering aspects coming from both ends of the Japanese car culture spectrum (Subaru and Toyota), it is sure to be a hit among enthusiasts looking for one of the best platforms to build off of and modify. To prove that the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ is one of the best foundations to start with in the tuner world, we have posted Inside Line’s Dyno run of the FR-S below.
Surprisingly the new Scion FR-S is quite the efficient little rear-wheel-drive vehicle putting out a healthy 173 horsepower to the wheels. With a rating of 200 horsepower to the flywheel, the FR-S has a relatively small power loss through the drivetrain. In knowing this, tuners are already ahead of the game. We await wheel-horsepower numbers of the first few tuners who bolt-on that monster turbo kit to the new FR-S or BRZ. Exciting stuff!
