It’s a Miracle— Subaru Is Building a BRZ STI By Jeff PerezApril 20, 2015 12:45 PM Rejoice, friends and enthusiasts everywhere. Subaru, in a plan to expand its STI range stateside, is finally building the BRZ STI sports car that everyone and their mother has been begging
Remember when Toyota announced the GT 86 platform and enthusiasts everywhere went nuts? After all, the GT 86 — Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ here in the States — was the rear-wheel drive, manual answer to everyone’s wishes. Well, it looks likes wishes don’t necessarily equate to
We’ve recently added a new addition to the 86SPEED Team and he goes by the Name of Cristian! Call him The Plug or the “go-to” but we like to keep it simple and call him Cris.
He now drives a 2015 Subaru STi, but like many of us he was once (and still is) an 86 enthusiast and previously drove a 2013 Scion FRS. We met Cristian a few years back when he was just a customer and the first thing we noticed about him was his curiosity. He was one to ask many questions related to the car and all aspects of it. We knew then that he would eventually be very knowledgeable about the car. Fast forward a few years later and he is such of that.
One of the few things to note about his 86 resume was that he was boosted. He was one of the first few owners to own the big Greddy t620z Turbo Kit and was the only one in Vegas. Might I add pushing well over 400 hp TO THE WHEEL! Its fast! (I know…I raced him and I too am boosted. With or without his Big APR GTC250 Wing and his sticky Toyo Proxes R888’s…I-did-not-stand-a-chance.)
Its not always easy being the first at anything. You have to leave a good impression, you have to take risks, and only by that will you see success ….through trail and error.
With only a little more than a couple years owning his FR-S. He learned much more. From support mods like axles & driveshafts, EcuTek tuning, exhaust components, suspension and so much more its safe to say he is very knowledgeable.
We even named a boost package after him!
The HARO Package
Apart from that, his attitude is laid back but his mentality can be best described as “how can I help you today?” So if you ever have a question and want to inquire about a part, don’t hesitate to shoot him a message or a call.
Welcome to the team, Cris!

The BRZ, known for its ultra-low center of gravity and precision handling, offers several updates for 2017 to increase performance on the track and open roads. For improved responsiveness, BRZ receives updated coil springs and a larger rear stabilizer bar and the Series.Yellow gains the additional upgrade of SACHS Performance shock absorbers. Reinforcements to the chassis were added to the strut tower braces, transmission cross-member plate and the rear wheel housings to increase rigidity. The stability control system has been updated to allow the driver to experience more of BRZ’s handling prowess. The results are dramatic enough for Subaru to change the name of “Sport” mode to “Track”.
For 2017, the BRZ front bumper cover has been redesigned for a widened appearance and positioned lower for improved aerodynamics, control, and stability. The sport coupe’s headlights are upgraded to “kono-ji” style LED with Daytime Running Lights (DRL). The turn signal and position light have been integrated into the new headlight for a clean design that completes the refined front fascia. New LED fog lights allow greater nighttime visibility and are standard on the Series.Yellow. The updated fender garnish matches the body color but with a black insert that accentuates it in profile.All 2017 BRZ models receive a pedestal-style aluminum rear spoiler in matching body color and black finish. The new design improves the vehicle’s downforce, which in turn improves stability and control. As with the headlights, the rear combination lights have been updated to full-LED for better visibility and energy efficiency.
Standard for the special edition is a 4.2-in LCD multifunction display positioned to the right of the prominent tachometer. This driver information readout provides access to vehicle performance including lateral Gs, accelerator pedal position, braking force, steering angle, oil and water temperature, and battery voltage as well as an integrated stop watch for recording lap times.

INTRODUCING THE ALL NEW
2017 SUBARU BRZ
We have been following the change of the BRZ/FRS
for a while now. Seeing whats going to be the next
big update. Now its officially out but are the updates
enough to make you want to get this new BRZ? We
all knew turbo STI Version of the BRZ would be a long
shot but we think these minor changes really puts the
BRZ ahead of its competitors. The first thing we see are
those big beautiful red Brembo brakes. Seems a bit
much for a car with only 205hp but as we have seen
in previous years, most people get aftermarket power
adders which will make it nice to have these brakes
from the get go.
Now the Front end change are subtle but we believe
looks more aggressive. Maybe a bit too aggressive
from the rest of the car but none the less We like it a lot!
Enjoy the info below provided by Subaru’s website.
Coming in September 2016!
