Cosworth has announced they're moving away from supplying individual parts and moving towards full tuning setups. Their objective is to become an approved upgrade partner for manufacturers, and the first in line is Subaru's FA20 engine with the Stage 1 Power Package, good for 230 horsepower.
The Scion FR-S/Toyota GT 86/Subaru BRZ trio could do with a bit more power, and the rumors were true, Cosworth has a good solution.
The Stage 1 Power Package focuses on the exhaust system, but since all new parts have been developed with the FA20 engine platform in mind, the scalable approach means that additional packages can be added easily later on.
Cosworth went to Nameless Performance to build the parts, and offers a free flow system with their own calibration kit and low temperature thermostat for starters. Here's what they say about it:
It features two 4" diagonally cut, branded, double wall tips and an "Y" shaped back muffler/silencer. In combination with the other components, this 304 stainless steel exhaust increases power output to 220bhp. By adding the optional combined overpipe front pipe with its spherical resonator, the new calibration power output is raised further to 225bhp. The black, thermally coated 4-2-1 manifold header option has equal length piping and CNC machined exhaust flanges, which helps to significantly reduce under hood/bonnet temperatures, boosting output with calibration to 230bhp while bringing a 22% weight reduction on the standard manifold.
If there's one brand with a bit of history when it comes to performance, it's Cosworth. So if the price is right, there are good times ahead of you Toyobaru lovers, good times indeed.
