    Recently bought a '17 brz limited and just couldnt stand the looks of the factory bicycle tires it comes with. Had a set of wheels in 17x8" with 235/45 all season tires mounted up that came off my WRX and decided to try them for fit and looks. Fell in love with the package. Driving dynamics were...
  3. Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    I'm currently about to order a 2017 BRZ Sport-Tech. I will be daily driving this car, and am not intending to use it at the track (Not pushing my engine that hard). Will the car be SAFE ON 87 octane gas? I understand that I should be putting in 91 or 91 (in which I probably will anyways) to...

  7. Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Ok - so here's my TPMS story (so far): I bought from one of our forum members a set of used OEM wheels with Primacy HP tires mounted. Took them to my favorite tire shop to get them balanced (just to be sure) and swapped for my original OEM wheels. (I bought the car in October, and had the...
  8. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    This morning, taking a leisurely turn at about 20 mph all the idiot lights came on and the engine just . . . stopped. No clanks, rattles, nothing. No smoke, no flames, just stopped. When I try to restart, nothing happens. Its keyless, so all that happens is that the lights and guages come...

    I am little pissed here, not sure if I should be. I have been buying new cars since 1980 and always had them serviced by their respective dealers. Most mileage put on them is 5 or less. I had the fuel pump replaced today, picked up the car, someone put on 40 miles. To me, that's a frickin'...
  10. Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hi, I recently bought a '14 BRZ, and was looking at performance upgrades. It seems like one can upgrade the intake + exhaust, and get some moderate level of performance increase only at very high [6k+] RPMs. Or, there's the turbocharger add + clutch upgrade option, getting significant...

    Howdy everyone! I appreciate the resources here in my quest to research this vehicle and learn about peoples' experiences and such. I hope to soon be a proud new owner of a BRZ, and wouldn't you know it Subaru goes and throws 0% APR financing until January 2, 2014, in my face for all 2013 BRZs...
  14. Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    It's my understanding that the engine uses both direct and port injection systems, but when exactly is it doing one or the other? and does the port injection happen enough to dissolve the carbon buildup on the valves caused by direct injection? I ask cause I'm looking at getting a subaru next...
  15. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    So I've been having the rough idle and stalling issue and it seems like I keep getting the CEL. I finally got an ODB reader and I got the above error codes. The last time I went to the dealer to have the CEL cleared they said that the codes that they got were false codes or codes they get when...

An ideal turbo sizing maintains the vehicles balanced driver feel, by maintaining good low-end response with the factory engine components. But...

    Hey guys, I'm thinking if getting the Avo turbo kit, with full exhaust. I'm located in NJ, and I'm trying to find a shop that can do the install, dyno, and tuning. I've tried precision tuning but they don't tune ecutek, and I tried Ivey but they don't tune the brz. Anyone around the area that...
