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.
