Engine swaps a becoming common and this the 2nd time somebody plans to drop a Cosworth engine into the 86. Earlier on we got news of a project in which they are dropping a 2jz into the car aswell more on that later.

Back to the Cosworth project here is how story goes:

Specifications are still being finalized, but company founder Jim Ghelis envisions the model will use a 2.6-liter Cosworth crate engine with a billet crankshaft, an HKS turbocharger and a front-mounted intercooler. The car would also be equipped with a billet flywheel and an EcuTek ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the BRZ would likely have an output in excess of 335 PS (246 kW / 330 hp) – an increase of 135 PS (99 kW / 133 hp).

Besides being more powerful, the car would be outfitted with an adjustable KW coil-over suspension, Whiteline anti-roll bars and a limited-slip differential. Other goodies are slated to include a Cosworth braking system and 18-inch Advan wheels with Federal RSR tires.

 

5. Finally just Remind you of the Factory Variants of the Cars such as:

One thought on “Toyota 86 & Subaru BRZ News: The Aftermarket

  1. Regardless of how fun it is to toss around.. strhagit line performance is clearly underwhelming. I don’t see any reason the torque or hp could not have gotten a healthy bump without while keeping the same price and them sacrificing slightly less cake they will rake in from each one. Once they add power and start out around 30k, this will no longer be a semi-budget mans car and the people shopping in that price range will already have much more tempting options. They will shoot themselves in the foot for not realizing this.
