If you’re viewing this blog post, chances are you have an idea of the real world difference between off the shelf canned tunes and a complete custom calibration. For many, mail order calibrations based on vehicle notes (modifications/driving style etc) is the only option. Truth be told, the people that arrive to us with canned/basemap calibrations end up being lifetime clients once we’ve given their ECU a once over. Drivability is one of our biggest concerns, WOT is fairly simple in comparison. We believe this to be what separates us from the pack!
(Not a BRZ pictured above, I know, but look at that quality keyboard control #HalibrationStation)
MOVING ALONG…..We had a great example of the contrast between the two tuning styles with Sam’s BRZ. It arrived to our shop with a mixture of small issues. Boost level was inconsistent, AFR was pig rich in various spots on the map, would die out in traffic regularly, choppy low speed/low RPM cruising, so on and so forth. From a mechanical standpoint, we battled boost levels a bit but ended up getting the curve where we needed it. On 7-8lbs of boost, we were able to churn out 315-320whp from run to run with great consistency. The turbo kit is a custom unit built by Driven Performance, and uses an internally gated Borg Warner, front mount, full exhaust, stock injectors. The kit looked to be great quality with much attention to detail. The FR-S/BRZ community has been one of our biggest supporters in recent years. We have invested hundreds of hours in seat time to learn these systems front to back, all in the name of passing that knowledge into our clients ECUs! For a calibration like this, give us a call M-F 8-5pm EST. Our schedule gets more and more dense closer to spring time, we will do all we can to get you on the rollers as soon as you need!
This BRZ arrived from Pennsylvania for a complete transformation – power, looks and handling were all addressed during it’s one week visit. For power, a Greddy FRS/BRZ Turbo kit and full exhaust was installed and tuned by Dynosty using EcuTek. Power improved from 148whp to 262whp, a 77% increase! To plant the power and improve handling, Bilstein suspension was installed along with new graphite grey Gram Light 57xtreme wheels and tires. The front of the car was outfitted with a Seibon carbon-fiber FRS BRZ hood and a splitter. The rear was rounded out with a new set of tail lights and a carbon fiber diffuser. The end result is a model of well-rounded modifications to improve the performance of the Subaru BRZ.
Dynosty is proud to release the first set of fuel rails for the FA20 engine in the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86. Effort was made to include the OEM fuel dampers to prevent fuel dead spots and tuning issues. Available in OEM returnless and return fuel styles, as well as an option to connect to the stock feed hardline. Available online at FRSMOD.com or call 502-384-8882. Stay tuned for more FRS BRZ fuel upgrades coming soon.
