AVO Stage 1 Turbocharger Kit for the 2013 Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S
AVO's front-mounted Stage 1 turbocharger kit for the Subaru BRZ and Scion
FR-S is in stock and ready to ship!
The kit is designed to work with both RHD and LHD models in all countries, with
extensive testing done on both the Japanese Subaru BRZ and the US Market Scion
The AVO turbocharger kit for the BRZ/FR-S/FT86 is designed from top to bottom
specifically to the FR-S and BRZ and consists of all the parts necessary to bolt
the kit up to the car. The kit utilizes an AVO 18/49 turbocharger that mounts up
under the front of the engine via an AVO stainless steel unequal exhaust
manifold, and then it bolts up to the stock exhaust with the AVO polished
stainless steel turbo outlet (also referred to as a downpipe). Cooling the
pressurized air is an AVO aluminum bar and plate front mount intercooler which
uses black piping throughout, mechanical oil scavenging pump, oil reservoir
tank, and all necessary water and oil hoses and fittings. Tuning is via Ecutek
The turbo kit was designed to bolt up to the stock air intake box and stock
exhaust system. AVO spent a lot of time ensuring it will work with the standard
fueling system for a complete bolt on and go setup. The beauty of the system is
that it looks very stock from above! The FMIC has been specifically designed to
fit with the standard bumper without trimming as well, and on FR-S models would
be be difficult to see unless you are looking for it.
There are several advantages to this design. The distance from the exhaust
ports to the turbo are kept as short as possible, which pays off with high
response and higher efficiency. Very little additional weight is added, and it's
kept in the same spot as before, keeping the center of gravity low. And that
entire area of the engine bay was already designed to take the heat of the
exhaust manifold, so no worries of heat affecting the engine components and
wiring. Given the relatively small size of the motor, this all would be very
important in maintaining good response from the turbo.
From AVO's testing, the kit can be expected to produce anywhere from 220 to 250
whp on pump gas, dependent entirely upon the quality of the pump gas. This is
due entirely to the fact that the stock motor is 12.5:1 compression, incredibly
high for a n/a motor. This makes gas quality even more important than ever!
BRZ/FR-S owners are encouraged to install a
knock monitor light for protection of your engine in case of a bad tank of
AVO Turbo Kit Component Specifications
Turbo Specifications: The AVO 18/49 Turbocharger comes with a 5-7 psi actuator
for precise boost control at lower psi levels, ensuring engine longevity. The
turbocharger is rated for 380 hp of flow, so there is certainly headroom
available with it from the base stage 1 kit.
Mechanical Oil Pump Specifications: The AVO kit is unique because it utilizes a
mechanical oil pump that located at the back of the engine and runs off the back
of the RH camshaft. There is also a oil reservoir tank right off the
turbocharger itself. This is the most reliable way to pull oil through the turbo
to the engine, as it keeps the flow rate tied to the rpm speed of the motor,
ensuring that it's properly scavenged at low RPM's and idling, and has enough at
Front Mount Intercooler Specifications: AVO Bar & Plate Aluminum Intercooler
with cast endtanks. Length = 19" Height = 8" Width = 3", The intercooler kit
utilizes black wire- reinforced silicone piping and two black powdercoated steel
piping. The intake piping has ports to mount up a variety of blow-off valves,
even OEM ones for a full stealth look.
