BRZ/FR-S Part Proving.... All Bolt-Ons Part 1

After our first dyno testing we did on all our exhaust pieces and intake parts, we created a ton of buzz in the BRZ/FR-S world. Being the first to do this, sparked many other vendors to do the same. We may not have been posting up tons of dyno graphs recently, but we have been spending most of our time learning about this new engine. Since we can now tune the ECU, we are able to see many things going [...Continue Reading...]

BRZ Catback Design and Proving

We have only had the car for a couple weeks now, but we have been looking at the BRZ/FR-S world for months trying to figure out what customers are going to want. From what we see, one of the most talked about parts is a catback exhaust system. People want an aftermarket exhaust to free up some HP and add some cool sounds to the car. With both these things in mind, we set out to build an exhaust system [...Continue Reading...]
