In stock trim, the Scion FR-S is simply fantastic. It’s light, agile, and practically begging to be flogged. However, there’s always room for improvement; at least that’s how the folks at Super Street see it. The performance magazine is known for utterly transforming any car its folks lay their hands on, and have extensive experience rendering modifications that produce both substantial performance improvements and show-stopping looks.

The FR-S you see here is no different. It’s Super Street’s entry for the Scion Racing Tuner Challenge; a 90-day race between three media outfits to complete the baddest FR-S before an official reveal at SEMA. In an online poll, Super Street managed to beat out both GT Channel and Speedhunters by a convincing margin. The real question is- what will the judges think?

With one recent FR-S build already under its belt, Super Street has the history to back it. IT also knows what it takes to make a car stand out in a field of top contenders. The strategy employed here is clear: “wider, wilder, and louder.” With a $15,000 budget and enough yellow paint to cover a fleet of school buses, can it take home the win?

Exterior

2015 Scion FR-S Super Street Exterior
- image 575556
Seibon once again provides some weight savings with a carbon-fiber trunk and hood.

The first thing you notice is how this thing looks. It’s obvious that the Super Street boys pulled no punches when it came to the exterior; a lot of time was spent making it look unique and custom.

A TRD Release Series 1.0 body kit is embellished with Aeroflow Dynamics side skirt add-ons, front splitter, and fog light delete, plus GReddy Rocket Bunny v.1 front fenders and v.2 rear fenders to flare the wheel arches. Seibon once again provides some weight savings with a carbon-fiber trunk and hood. Bulletproof Automotive Crystal Eye taillights finish off the rear, and coating it all is a healthy coat of PPG Speed Yellow paint.

The wheels are custom Floss Edition BBS LM pieces measuring in at 18 inches in diameter, 10.25 inches in width up front, and a monstrous 12.25-inch width in the rear.

Interior

Inside is an amalgamation of streetcar and track car themes. The Car Shop installed a Pioneer AVIC-8000NEX head unit running through 12-inch subs, and custom upholstery stitching adds a nice touch to the driver’s surroundings. There’s also a Godspeed custom, six-point rollcage, Recaro Sportster CS seats, a steering wheel from Personal mounted with a Works Bell hub and quick-release adapter, and swing mount forged pedals.

Drivetrain

We’d love to see a dyno on the gains made by this piece, as we’d expect better response and a fatter curve, but by how much?

Super Street’s competitors both went with a blower when it came to adding power to the FR-S, but for this flat-four engine, it’s all atmosphere. To aid in the ingress of that air, we find Borla Induction 45-mm DCOE individual throttle bodies, an interesting choice when it comes to four-cylinder power. We’d love to see a dyno on the gains made by this piece, as we’d expect better response and a fatter curve, but by how much?

Complimenting the ITBs are Injector Dynamics 1000-cc injectors, Gearheinz’s manifold adapter and custom drive-by-wire ITB bracket, Borla headers and cat-back exhuast with custom quad tips, a MoTeC M1 ECU, Perrin pulley kit, and SPEC clutch and flywheel. There’s also all kinds of mods to keep the engine bay looking as clean and spartan as possible, including a Rywire custom brake line tuck kit, fuel kit, radiator line kit, and clutch line kit, plus a relocated alternator and battery. There’s so much extra room, you could practically squeeze in another engine. You know, because reasons.

Suspension

Like the GT Channel FR-S, KW Clubsport coilovers replace the stock setup. Whiteline also makes a repeat appearance with its front and rear sway bars, two-point sway bar brace, front control arms, roll center bumpsteer kit, and stiffer bushings. An Eibach rear camber kit keeps those gigantic rear wheels properly aligned. Wilwood six-piston calipers are up front, while four-piston calipers are used in the back. Finally, traction is provided by Nitto NT05 tires measuring in at 275/35 up front and 295/35 in the rear.

Prices

With $15,000 to play with, there are quite a few parts on the table here. There’s also lot of custom work, and we’d guess that the various shops that Super Street employed hooked up the bro discount for labor.

Conclusion

When it comes to creating something “wider, wilder, and louder”, we’d say Super Street pretty much nailed it. The fenders and wheels are enormous, the body kit lines are aggressive, and you need earplugs to look at the paint. The engine bay is also very clean, plus the use of individual throttle bodies is definitely different. Now, with the work done and the car delivered, all eyes are on the SEMA judges.

    • Would have liked more interior upgrades to compliment the exterior
    • What are the power gains?
    • Pretty much just a show queen

Press Release

No stranger to building a Scion FR-S, Super Street used inspiration from their first build, a British Racing Green/Rocket Bunny theme, except this time they’ve turned the dial way up, going wider, wilder and louder. It’s a new school version Rocket Bunny look with TRD Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 styling cues that’s been grafted on with the help of LTMW. Under the hood, the FA20 has gone ITBs, a rarity no matter where you look across the world, and includes master wiring from Rywire.
