  2. Subframe bushings first

    Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Thinking of suspension or tire mods? Do yourself a favour and fit rear subframe bushing inserts first. Whiteline from Australia are now on my BRZ. Fantastic upgrade. At the same time fit a transmission mount insert bushing. Firms up the shift action perfectly, almost more important than...
  3. Dealer does not help!!!

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I bought my 2015 Subaru BRZ limited almost 2 months ago and after 300 miles I wanted to add some mods to it, so I ordered Perrin and Whiteline transmission mount inserts, Eibach swaybars and Perrin steering rack lockdown and installed them. Then I started to hear (what others have heard...

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I have a '13 BRZ with a manual transmission and less than 2k miles. I am having a problem where when it is cold outside and I just started the car it is nearly impossible to move the shifter into 2nd gear. I have no problem going into 1 or an other gear but going 1 to 2 or 3 to 2 I have to...

    Sup, i'm new to this forum, i recently purchased a grey '13 brz limited and it's my first manual. i've taken a few lessons from a friend on his mazda and thought it was actually pretty easy to drive. unfortunately i feel like i'm almost going backwards with the brz and am looking for...
  9. New Product: Torque Solution Subaru BRZ Race Version Rear Subframe Bushings

    Max Performance Automotive
    Torque Solution introduces their "race version" Rear Subframe Lockdown System for the 2013+ Subaru BRZ. This system was designed to reduce movement of the rear subframe. This helps to improve transmission feedback when shifting, and gives the car a more solid feel under hard acceleration...
  10. My guess: the tS is the testbed for the proper STI

    Subaru BRZ STI Discussion
    I was thinking - if you want to release a full STI version, it would be worth testing it to make sure all the new suspension and braking components work seamlessly upon launch. And what better way to do that than to release 500 copies of an almost-STI version in Japan? Japan is a friendly...
  11. Transmission thud into first gear?

    Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    New BRZ guy here; 5 days and less than 150 miles on it. Today, I noticed that when I go into first there is a pronounced thud that my wife/passenger also can hear . For example, when sitting at a stoplight I will put the car in neutral and release the clutch. When the light changes I depress the...
  12. G+One's Aquamarine Dream Girl build - Meet Lina

    Subaru BRZ Builds and Projects
    hey guys, Got my Galaxy Silica Blue* limited BRZ 6spd at the start of the summer and fell in love immediately- I've wanted this car since it was a drawing, and to wake up and drive to class/work in her is still surreal 3 months later. I don't think that feeling is going anywhere anytime soon-...
  13. Engine Smoother after ECU Tune

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Has anyone else noticed that the engine runs smoother after an ECU tune? I had my BRZ with a stock drivetrain tuned the other day and, wow, the engine runs so much smoother and quieter now. Of course it pulls better too with the +4 ft/lb torque increase (+17 WHP too). The idle speed was also...
  14. Brz with directport

    Subaru BRZ Builds and Projects
    I am toying with the idea of running a direct port nitrous setup on my soon to be brz. The setup will have a standalone c16 fuel setup with a progressive controller, custom tune with wideband and all supporting mods. Has anyone worked with n20 on these cars what are the common bugs that need...
  15. Lack of info on STi and 2014 is lame by Subaru...

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    I'm sorry, but the days of keeping hush about what's coming next year and with high performance variants is OVER. Subaru seems hell bent on keeping BRZ early adopters happy by not releasing any new info on what's coming up down the road. Why? All this does is make people buy another car and...
  16. Lightweight Pulleys (Crank, etc..)

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    So in my quest for my first "reasonable" modification; I've been lured into the world of Lightweight Pulleys. Seems like a reasonably priced DIY performance-minded modification. A quick google search shows PLENTY of choices, more than enough to make me question which is the best choice...
  17. power and weight

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    It is often argued that despite its light weight, the Subaru BRZ needs more power to be a great sports car, because some cars have a greater power to weight ratio. This is an odd thing to say about the second most powerful car in its weight at any price, in a competitive market. I could have...
  18. Suspension and drivetrain bushings

    Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Anyone else notice how ridiculously soft some of the stock bushings are on the suspension and drivetrain? I had the car up in the air again over the weekend to do the rear shifter bushing and tranny mount support and noticed a lot of room for improvement in these areas. The good news is...
  19. Engine Warm-up

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Over the past few years I’ve heard a few people say that ‘modern’ cars don’t need to warm up before driving them – just get in, start the engine and go. Call me old-fashioned, but I still warm up the engine prior to putting a load on it. When I start up the BRZ I allow the engine to idle and...
  20. I think I have a mental problem

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    :( I took delivery of my WRB BRZ LTD on January 12th and in two months, I have ~2000 miles on it. I refuse to drive it, and drive only on the weekends, for the most part. Never in rainy weather. My backup car is a nice 1976 Ford Thunderbird, in decent conditional and a somewhat collector car...
