Motovicity Ticket to Ride – Scion FR-S Build Part 2
With a more responsive suspension and more aggressive brake and pad set-up, it was now time to set the team at SpeedForSale Motorsports loose on the Motovicity Ticket to Ride Scion FR-S with the rest of the goodies they received with their free ride courtesy of HKS, AEM Electronics, Energy Suspension, Exedy and Sparco.
This is not the first time someone has made a claim stating the Scion FR-S is a horribly under powered car from the factory. If the car made around 220whp from the factory it would, in our opinion, be damn near perfect. It doesn't make anywhere near that, so if the car is to truly be an all around performer, it would need more than just a couple simple bolt on parts. Enter HKS and their centrifugal supercharger kit to help us ensure we have some measurable performance gains in the acceleration department.
Adding forced induction to a car that did not come that way from the factory may sound like a daunting task, but the HKS kit truly does an excellent job of providing the end user with a complete kit with all necessary and ancillary components needed. The instructions are very detailed and the hardware provided make for a relatively fab-free installation. Great news for the DIY'er and even better news for those of you who don't intend to keep your FR-S forever, as the installation is completely reversible.
