what an eager enthusiast — and a supercharging perfectly the performance potential of the Toyota 86 and BRZ . The bolt-on kit — one of a handful of upgrades from global suppliers — comes out of WA the Bullet label and lifts torque up about 60 per cent and by 40 per cent.

From birth, the 86 exotic-car poise and balance for $10 shy of and guaranteed smiles — but its 2-litre aspirated engine a weak link for owners to match image with

Specifically, it is designed to eradicate the torque curve of the standard that includes weakness at low and a black hole» from Flattening out that rollercoaster of the torque curve is the supercharger’s role. Bullet manufacturer claims the dyno shows outputs of 175kW/245Nm compared the standard engine’s wheel of 120kW/190Nm.

But more power is just a new system away, says managing director Steve who loaned the test car that is to a stock 86 GT manual except for the blower and its integrated wafter-like He says the new exhaust should add 10 per cent to the power and torque

The blower is one of the latest add-ons to the appeal of the 86 GT and is priced at $4990 a few thousand dollars less the populous performance-void body — plus installation. But is unlikely to be the only additional Apedaile admits the supercharger demand more powerful — which need wheels to make room for the brake rotors — and suspension.

The 10psi blower, even despite the Swedish-made water-to-air intercooler within the sits neatly on top of the Subaru engine and doesn’t foul the line, is a new product from Its installation is more than involving a reflash of the engine’s CPU an EcuTek program.

The S5 supercharger is one of four products including one for the 660cc Japanese Kei — now made by a joint-venture in Malaysia with company Corporation.

Apedaile says the kit is sold to Sprintex’s US distributor the Innovate Motorsports name and in as Cusco.

Australia gets the intercooled version of the supercharger parts of the US and some other markets have the option of it without the intercooler. However, the can be added later. A similar is being developed for the Chrysler-Jeep Pentastar V6 .

No off-the-mark gasp and no need to the clutch to maintain momentum and stalling — that irons out the low-speed annoyances of the 86, in traffic. The dyno graph you for the drive. It shows the torque at about 150Nm at 2000rpm standard engine is 135Nm at the revs) and curve to 210Nm by shadowed by the normally-aspirated engine climbs to 190Nm at the same

But by 4000rpm the standard engine has dropping to 155Nm while the engine is continuing upwards to The blown engine then a flat curse to 7250rpm the standard engine dips and tailing off to 155Nm at the top of the tacho

The graph translates almost into the driving feel, strong off-the-mark strength the engine that is in stark to the strangled feeling — and stall — of the production The supercharger, its activity aurally by a muted whine, simply the 86’s acceleration and makes it a technical exercise. For the driver, means less concentration in the power smoothly to the ground.

The extra oomph is the bonus. But no immediacy to the power flow, it’s linear from through to the 7400rpm cut-off. is notably increase in the mid-range as demonstrated by the dyno graph that pours on strongly overtaking. However, though the version spins to the red line, the low-end torque made 5500rpm a bit excessive.

Carsguide return to Sprintex in a couple of and I can run a video test on the car with its free-flow exhaust. Apedaile the standard exhaust is one of the reasons why the suffocates in the mid range. The new system may the previous paragraph obsolete.

I was searching for the handling impact of the 30kg that’s stacked the front axle. It wasn’t on the test route’s winding roads but may show up later on the The test car had a space-saver spare in the which may offset the supercharger’s and nullify any handling discrepancy.

As for the of the car — it’s an 86. Surprisingly ride despite the rough roads in Perth’s north-eastern the same 86/BRZ tight and short shifter (but the oil still needs to be warmed accurate steering feel and bolstered driver’s seat.

Power with glory. An kit for those seeking more but a warning that it’s the start of what may becomes an journey of modification.
