Tunehouse is the first we have encountered with a program, although there are no specs for the model just yet. Jim Ghelis, company founder, shared that a 2.6-liter Cosworth crate engine will power the modified BRZ, with an HKS turbocharger and a front-mounted intercooler. In addition, the BRZ will get an EcuTek ECU and a billet flywheel. The output is expected to increase by over 130-hp, putting the lightweight BRZ at over 330-hp.

An adjustable KW coil-over suspension, limited-slip differential and Whiteline anti-roll bars have also been fitted to the car, which rides on a set of 18-inch Advan wheels wrapped in Federal RSR rubber. A Cosworth braking system will provide the stopping power.

Refresher: The 2013 Subaru BRZ is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder boxer engine making 200-hp at 7,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 151 lb-ft at 6,600 rpm. The engine is mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.
