Its a stock boxer motor so not bad but nothing exiting. Tons of mods for it right now actually but working on a few things like exhaust intake turbo

GT-3076 with a tial .82A/R turbo on the FR-S to start tackling any type of fitment issues.

My favorite part of you doing this is that you still have 30 day temp tags on it. Cant wait to see it when its done and in action!!!

I take it you have voided the warranty big time! Looks strange ripping bits off a completely new car . I am sure it will end a real beast by the time you are finished with it. Given it is such a new car there must be limited experience out there with any mods - granted the boxer motor is well known. Do you need to fit a roll cage etc. What class and type of racing will you be doing?

Regards, Nigel

The shop I go to is very well known for their excellent workmanship so I have 100% faith in them and yes there goes the warranty.

But hey

who cares! haha.

In terms of extremeness I will do probably a handful of track days a year maybe a fit more mainly concentrating on autocrossing so probably no roll cage for now.

41.6 lbs for single wheel/tire combo is something we can only wish for on Turbo X!

[Props on the gold finish too: Confess I probably wouldn't have selected that by default. I would've been wrong].

Default ..so why not...

......save yourself a whole bunch of money and look at somthing that is alot easier to work on, understand, and responds well to small mods and rewards huge mods (still,under 2000-3000) with "Holey S**t, all the telephone poles are a blur, and when will my front end come down?"
I am of course, talking about a motorcycle. A nice 'busa will cost about 7 to 9 k, is STUPID quick, and with a big enough sak, can reach at least 170 mph. A few mods, shorten wheelbase to help it handle quicker, enlarge intake, yoshi pipes, a bar mounted heart moniter (your cardiologist will want that) and you are ready to rock. Add a turbo, and you will experience for your self just what it felt like when James T. Kirk would tell Scotty "warp 5 Scotty" and all the stars would be motionless then all of a sudden blur. Which on a bike is better than orgasm.
Or, if you still want four wheels and fun, try a go-kart, hey, don't laugh, the gearing that I had on mine would launch me to about 75 mph and 90 degree corners at speed are enough to make you loose your last meal. (serious g forces) . . . anyway, a good shifter kart will be about 7500.00, a sprint kart with 100cc Yamaha 2 stroke which is what I had, will set you back approx 4000 to 5000 bucks. I have done both on tracks, had a ball, discovered that I didn't have enough (if any) talent to race...but I sure did have fun figuring out that I didn't!

I'm dumb, I'd kill my self on a bike Lol. Shifter carts are nice as suggested by others but I like trend setting and help others in the commuinity when I can when it cones to research and development. Besides I already have the car so the suggestions are a bit moot now haha

No clue as I am not developing the kit but in terms of PSI I would say definitely below 10 ?
