Scion FR-S / BRZ Vortech Supercharger Video
Vortech Superchargers just released a new video featuring their latest creation, the V-3 H67B centrifugal supercharging system for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ platforms on their YouTube page. Before you watch this video, make sure the kids are in bed and the wifey isn’t looking over your shoulder, because this is straight up car porn.
Featuring some of the most bad-ass supercharged FT86’s this side of the Mississippi, Vortech’s new teaser video does a an excellent job of showcasing the builds chosen for testing and development. With the development phase officially over, the kit is available to the public for a mere pittance of $4298.95 for their “Tuner Kit” or $5687.95 for the Complete System, as seen on their website.
What’s in the box?
Sinking $5.6k into a brand new car sounds like a big deal, right? That’s because it is – especially for most owners who are still making payments and saving up for other mods. Really cool mods like, Yospeed plaques, and door sills. All jokes and shameless plugging aside, the kit comes with quite a bit.
A lot of thought and preparation went into this kit, and as a result, many of the set backs and concerns were taken care of before the kit was released. No need to worry about tapping into existing oil lines or modifying your oil pan, because Vortech’s got it taken care of with an internal oil reservoir. No need to remove the supercharger for fluid changes either! The over-sized cooler and integrated cooling configuration allow for maximum air flow and minimum pressure loss.
They didn’t cheap out on any of the components either. The kit includes heat resistant silicon sleeves, and stainless steel clamps. CNC machined brackets with a black anodize finish(our favorite) hold the kit in place and give it than OEM feel in terms of appearance and quality.
All of that doesn’t really matter unless it’s backed up with some decent figures, though. No need to worry about that. Vortech promises an increase to an astounding 294 horsepower and 210 pound feet of torque at 9PSI. That’s with the provided Ecutek re-flash and 91 octane fuel. I’m sure we’ll be seeing even better numbers as the days go by and more people begin playing with different tunes and upgrading internals to withstand more boost!
Alright, enough chatter. Hit that play button and enjoy the orchestra of these FA20 Boxer engines at full roar.
