Amazing that an LS2 takes up less space than a 2.0L boxer 4 cylinder.

I may need one of those in my life. The FRS/BRZ is a crazy fun car to drive. Add 300rwhp and it would be amazing.

Almost sounds like the BRZ/FRS LS3 would make a good Gen 6 Camaro.

The BRZ/FRS is too small to be a Camaro, but less size and weight is definitely high on the list of things that I would like and expect to see in the 6th Gen.

I wonder why they used the LS2 instead of the LS3.

In another article I read it said they swiped it out of the Corvette of one of the shop owners. I'm guessing he probably donated that engine to project and dropped something new in his ride.

I have a feeling this is going to become quite common. The BRZ is one fantastic chassis, but that motor is just anemic. I still don't understand why Subaru hasn't put one of their turbo motors in it.

kinda reminds me of the time that one company put the LS motor in the Pontiac Solstice roadster I saw one up close at a car show it looked like it was a factory installed option it was converted so well.

Turbo is coming. New car intro's start basic and save the best for later. Camaro 1LE/ZL1/Z28 for example.

Last I heard the BRZ STi was coming without a turbo. Not sure where a turbo model would fit in the lineup there. I haven't been keeping tabs on it though, so maybe that has changed. It would be one awesome little car with a turbo subaru motor in it.

From what I have seen the FA20 (the little guy in the BRZ) is handling boost a lot better than the EJ motors in the WRX even from a NA standpoint - a few shop cars pushing 500's...granted they don't have as much torque - it will fun to see what the next few years bring for cars

BRZ will get a turbo but what about the FRS does that mean toyota will put their engine into the car soon and supercharge it?

No Toyota will never put there engine in this chassis.(stock) Now what would be cool is a 2jz supra engine with a power glide....

Meh, typical doomsayers.

Performance cars, trucks, and SUV's will always have a market, no matter the cost. There might be fluctuations in demand, but we see that across all the markets. There will always be people that will be willing to sacrifice a few extra bucks at the pump for the added performance.

Pretty cool not a bad deal for 9100 bucks on top of a brz and I bet you can recoup some of it when you sell of the Brz motor to some tuner shop. I say its worth it.

The Crawford BRZ made more torque then horsepower. 500hp/550tq

This statement shouldn't worry anyone.

This is why the next gen Camaro will be out on the Alpha chasis...which is much lighter.

The video also said it is having issues with overheating, but I suppose it proves it can be done - even if it happens at 7k rpm.
