    Crawford Performance fully built Subaru BRZ.

    450hp, 500tq from the 2.0 liter FA20 boxer on pump gas. 500hp on E85. The car weighs 2700 lbs.

    Suddenly, the limits for the BRZ have gone way, way up.

    Current: '15 Macan S | '00 S2000
    Previous:
    '06 Cayman S | '12 E92 335is w/JB4 | '10 STi w/Cobb, RCE, Whiteline
    Coming Soon: '15 WRX STi

    what does the graph look like though?

    I know the P&L motorshports BRZ turbokit that makes 402 on e85 doesn't cross the 300hp mark until 5500...

    Would love to see the dynograph.

    But that really, really makes this car way more attractive. It seriously lacks punch.

    That was before they swapped out the clutch due to slipping. You definitely have to wait on it, but good grief is the area under the curve amazing.

    Here's the blog entry:

    What is art? An argument I’ve had at the TST office several time. I argue a stupid, giant boulder sitting outside a museum, is not art, nor was the act of bringing said rock to the museum. This is an argument I vowed to defend, standing on a bill of canvas, clay, and paint, armed with a battle axe, fighting off these liars that tell me logistics can be art. Bring it.

    Then I saw this dyno sheet, and thought, “My word, that’s beautiful.” Hypocrisy, revealed. The same people that gazed in wonder at a rock, would think this is an accounting spread sheet, or a graphical representation of market projections for the 4th quarter. But this is the dyno sheet for the Crawford Performance BRZ, with its new E85 tune, and to me, it’s a masterpiece; It certainly conveys more meaning than that Mona Lisa thing. I know firsthand how well Subaru (or turbo motors in general) do with some corn syrup (I know it isn’t corn syrup), but the last car I drove was a 2006 WRX with the 2.5-liter; a good motor but before the time of direct injection. That car made 400 at the crank. The Crawford BRZ‘s results, are pretty staggering.

    “we decided to do an E85 tune on our Spec C BRZ, the current clutch started slipping so we had to hold the boost back under 4500 RPM. When the new clutch is in the car we expect another 50 to 75 lb-ft of torque.”
    475 horsepower at the crank, with the torque done in matching trim (and more left in the engine, after a new clutch). Anyone who’s driven a FR-S/BRZ knows how light it is, so 400WHP will turn it into a rocket ship; almost like a 4-wheeled motorcycle in terms of power/weight/size. A nimble mouse whose skin has been genetically altered to be comprised of C4. Thaddeus actually rode in this very car at Buttonwillow, with Bill Caswell behind the wheel. Thad is a man who doesn’t get excited easily, and reserves words like “good”, “tasty”, or “fast” for only the best things on this planet. So his words really sum up with this graph is trying to convey: “That car, is $#@!ing fast.”

    love it! I'd love to go back to Subarus. I was tired of rebuilding motors though.

    Hopefully they release a factory turbo version, making he above even easier.

    Anyone have any idea of the cost of building that car. I see a motor for $6K on their website but I can't figure out if that is just for the built motor or the kit as well. And then you have to replace the same stuff Crawford broke on theirs. I'd imagine you'd be out at least 10K before you're done.

    I'd guest that's the motor. A built short block was $3-6k depending on how far you went, back in the day.

    I was about to post this up here, I'm only a month late haha.

    I was pretty impressed by the numbers. How much longevity can you expect from this though? And it seems like it was having issues over certain RPM, at least thats what the driver said. It wasn't consistently reproducable though, looked like.

    I've always been interested in the BRZ since it came out, but I think I'll wait a long time to gauge the aftermarket in the before even considering moving from my N54. Still, very neat car.

    Yank the motor and do a LS3.
    Sell the stock BRZ motor so some kid can use it for his go kart.
