What kinds of Intake System Upgrades are available for FR-S?

When most people think of performance, a high-flow air intake immediately comes to mind for most people. There are several styles of intake available, and you should be aware of what the differences are. Not all Air Intake Upgrades are the same, and some can be used in combination for the most benefit. There are Cold Air Intake Systems, Ram Air Intake Systems, Short-Ram Air Intake Systems and Performance Replacement Air Filters. Visit the FR-S Intakes section for more information and to check out our selection.


What types of Exhaust Systems are available for my car?

Several types of exhaust upgrades are available for your Scion
The design of an exhaust system can vary depending on which parts of an exhaust system you want to replace. Systems can be either bolt on exhaust kits or weld-in, depending on style and manufacturer. Exhaust systems are typically offered as header/downpipe-back, cat-back or axle-back, which refer to how much of the exhaust system is included. Typically, cat-back or header back is best for performance and sound improvements, whereas Axle-Back is more ideal if you are simply after a better exhaust tone. While less effective, because there is much less of the exhaust system replaced, axle-back setups are usually less expensive and make less of an alteration to the vehicle. Most exhaust kits include exhaust pipe adapters [as needed] to allow them to bolt on directly to the OEM exhaust system where necessary.

We offer exhausts fromRemus Exhaust, Air Flow Engineering (aFe), AR Design, ARK Performance, HKS, Milltek Sport, Neuspeed, STaSIS Engineering,Eisenmann Exhaust Systems, Borla, Magnaflow,Evolution Racewerks, Rogue Engineering, Tanabe, Takedaand more.

How can I "chip" my Scion? What is ECU Flash Tuning?
What will an ECU tune do for my Scion?

openflash tuner for scion frs and subaru brz

This is a great question, because today's cars complex electronic systems can be upgraded or modified in a variety of ways, sometimes without even needing to physically leave a component installed on the vehicle to have a huge increase in power. Many modern cars, especially turbocharged or supercharged vehicles, can pick up huge power increases simply by changing the ECU software a little.
  • ECU Flash Tune Upgrades
    These types of systems typically plug into the vehicle's OBD II port via a cable connecting the car to either a handheld device or a laptop. The laptop or device makes a backup copy of the car's original "Stock" computer settings and installs a "tuned" set of parameters for fuel, timing, boost, ignition and other settings as well as doing things like disabling maximum speed limits, raising the rev limiter, turning off torque limiting and other things that may impede performance. Good examples of this sort of upgrade include the Vishnu's OpenFlash Tablet system for the FR-S/BRZ.

    Both Piggyback type and ECU Flash tune upgrades allow the use of proper "Tunes". The Tune is a file that is either pre-programmed for certain sets of upgrades ("canned tunes") by the device's manufacturer or can be custom written by a professional tuner on a dynamometer for maximum gains. The Canned tunes are typically more conservative whereas a professional tune can be tailored to your exact vehicle and upgrades.
What do Underdrive Pulley Do For My Scion?

Many people are confused by what Underdrive pulleys actually do. By replacing the heavy or steeply geared pulleys used by the OEM system to run accessories like Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Alternator and other important systems with lightweight or different-ratio pulleys, your engine does not have to work as hard, and so you recover power that is normally lost. Depending on the application these can free up between 3 and 15 horsepower.

What does an Oil Cooler do for my Scion?

An oil cooler helps keep the oil temperature of your engine down. These are a great thing to have if you drive the car hard for longer periods of time (regular canyon runs or track days), they prevent the oil from breaking down under hot thermal conditions. When the oil gets too hot, it can lose its lubricant properties and your oil will stop protecting your engine the way it needs to. Turbo engines especially benefit from the use of an oil cooler. Most police cars feature a number of additional coolers (oil, transmission, power steering) to bolster the OEM cooling system - and this additional cooling capacity dramatically extends the lifespan of these engines. For both consistency and as a preventive item, an oil cooler will definitely be a compliment to your engine, and by running cooler, your engine may feel like it's running stronger too.
We offer high quality oil cooler kits for FR-S BRZ from Perrin Performance and more.

What does an Oil Catch Can do for my Scion exactly?

FRS and brz engine bay FRS and brz engine catch can

Many turbo and supercharged vehicles suffer from some degree of oil blowby that enters the intake system. This isn't your fault or because you've somehow neglected your car or that you have a worn out engine (but if you see clouds of blue smoke coming out of your exhaust regularly there may be something wrong), it's just a fact of life. It's going to happen. This blowby oil exits the crankcase vent system as vapor, and tends to accumulate and gunk up the intake system. It loves to accumulate in your intercooler. By installing an oil catch can, you are better filtering the crankcase vent system and catching that blowby oil and keeping your intake system clean. Not to mention, they look cool. They're a great preventative maintenance sort of device.


What will a Limited Slip Differential do for my Scion?

Well, should you want to go drifting (if you have a rear-wheel-drive car), this upgrade is almost a must. If you hear the term "LSD" thrown around among people at the track, they are referring to a limited slip differential.
The differential is a gearing device that helps balance the delivery of power between your drive wheels left-to-right. Without Limited-Slip, under low-traction conditions, power will predominantly go to one wheel - this is most clearly illustrated by a Rear-Wheel-Drive car with an "open" (non-limited slip) attempting to do a burnout. Only one of the wheels will do a burnout - this is called "one-wheel-peel" among enthusiasts. Having the limited slip differential in a rear wheel drive car improves handling performance and also allows you to maintain even grip between the drive wheels for better take-offs. In the case of a front-wheel-drive car, a limited slip differential will help correct the "torque steer" problem that most high powered FWD vehicles suffer from. We offer Limited Slip units from Cusco, Quaife and Wave-trac.

How can Heat Shielding help improve my performance?

By isolating major sources of heat, you can keep your engine cooler, thereby lowering intake air temperatures, which will always result in the car making more power. Heat shielding can also be used to keep your intake from sucking in hot air or to protect sensitive wiring from extreme sources of heat.
What is header wrap? What does that do?

Header wrap is a specially designed type of self-adhesive tape that is wrapped around the runners of the exhaust manifold, with the theory being that it improves exhaust scavenging for better performance. Turbo blankets are similar and are designed to isolate the major source of heat to the turbocharger itself and keep the rest of the engine bay cooler as a result.

Can I turbocharge or supercharge my naturally aspirated FR-S or BRZ?

For really dramatic power gains, we offer a number of well designed conversion systems that are a great way to go to help you get force-fed. And considering the FR-S/BRZ power deficit, it ranks pretty high on most enthusiasts Mod Wish lists.
You can also Supercharge your FR-S or BRZ - Supercharging being especially popular with V8s. A belt-driven supercharger will yield fantastic throttle response and immediate boost, but a supercharger is generally will make slightly less power than a turbocharger. A centrifugal supercharger offers the best of both worlds, operating basically as a belt-driven turbo.

Should you want to go turbo, we've got you covered there too. We offer turbocharger kits for the FR-S/BRZ, like the Full Blown Motorsports Turbo kit for the Scion FR-S/BRZ.
