Australian tuner Tunehouse is not going to wait for Subaru to launch a more powerful BRZ. They’re taking matters into their own hands devising a plan to give the BRZ the power it deserves. How they’re going to do this is by ditching the 2.0 liter 200-hp boxer engine, and replacing it with a 330-hp  2.6-liter Cosworth unit. That is more like it.

The Cosworth engine is pretty beefed up with all kinds of high-performance parts, including billet crank, HKS GT-spec turbo and a front-mounted intercooler,  lightweight billet flywheel, EcuTek ECU and a custom Tunehouse dyno tune.

The chassis of the standard BRZ is tuned for 200-hp, so when you give it an extra 130-hp, you need to also make adjustments to that, or the car just falls apart. In order to do so, Tunehouse fits the car with KW Variant 3 coil-over adjustable suspension, 18-inch Advan wheels with Federal RSR tires, and Cosworth six-piston front/four-piston rear calipers.

They also install a 1.5-way Tunehouse LSD diff, so you can put that power down more efficiently. The only drawback with this car is that by the time Tunehouse is finished with it, it’s no longer a 25,000 GBP proposition. It’s going to cost way more than that.
