• 2013 Subaru BRZ Cosworth Concept by Tunehouse

LISTEN 01:30

The Subaru BRZ is so brand spanking new that prices have only just been announced, but that doesn’t mean that the sports car isn’t ripe for a tuning project. Australian aftermarket tuner, Tunehouse, has announced a preview of their program for the BRZ that involves a significant increase in its performance output. Unfortunately, we only have a rendering of the package for now.

The company is still working on the final specifications for their BRZ, but company founder, Jim Ghelis, said they are working on "offering a reliable yet significant lift in power with an emphasis on improving the car’s low-end torque. The company is planning on taking out the BRZ’s standard 2.0-liter boxer engine in favor of a 2.6-liter Costworth crate engine that also comes with an HKS turbocharger, a front-mounted intercooler, a billet crankshaft, a billet flywheel, and a modified EcuTek ECU unit. These additions will increase
power from the standard 200 HP to 330 HP, a 65% increase.

In addition to the increased output, the Tunehouse-tuned BRZ will also be fitted with Whiteline anti-roll bars, a limited slip differential, an adjustable KW coil-over suspension, a Cosworth braking system, and a new set of 18" Advan wheels wrapped in Federal RSR tires.

I like its dark yellow color! It represents fierceness and determination to me, which is very suitable for a sports car.

A good improvement....but I think TRD and Scion will follow...Nonetheless a very impressive car

The 65% increase on its HP is already a great improvement! I hope Tunehouse will truly actualize this concept; this would make BRZ stand out from its doppelgangers.
