Subaru BRZ Turbo Build - Full Race & BW EFR 7163 Turbo - Part 2

Previously we installed the meat and potatoes of the Full-Race turbo kit including the turbo itself, exhaust piping, FMIC, and a few other goodies (Which we covered in PART 1).  With everything in the engine bay looking good we moved to the interior of the car to get the gauges and boost control working.

Subaru BRZ Turbo Build - Full Race & BW EFR 7163 Turbo - Part 1

This BRZ came to us bone stock, and the owner had some idea on what he wanted, but wasn’t exactly sure how to go about it.  His goal was to install a turbo kit into his BRZ and have it tuned so we could raise the horsepower and torque levels to something a bit more enjoyable that the factory 200hp rating.  We sat down with the owner and went over our suggestions for the appropriate turbo and kit for his goals and budget.  He wanted to “do it right” and not go the cheap route on the kit or parts.  With that in mind we suggested a Full-Race turbo kit paired with an BW EFR turbo.  The two options were for the 6258 or the venerable 7163. He opted for the larger 7163 so that he would have some headroom later to raise power levels, plus he liked the fact that the turbo is used in Indy racing!

SCCA 2017 Runoffs Victory ~ 1-2 Finish and a Championship Win

Circuit Motorsports has been working closely with Dynasty Racing to dial in their fleet of GT86 race cars throughout the 2017 season as their exclusive ECU tuner. The team enjoyed many successes with 4 victories and 4 separate track records between the three teammates.  It all culminated during SCCA Runoffs held at famed Indianapolis motor speedway, where they fielded 3 cars and almost came home with a full podium sweep, but there was a little drama on track...
