Cosworth decided that it is time to offer an upgrade for the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GT86. As a result, the company launched a series of Power Packages options for the FA20 engine platform.
The Stage 1 Power Package offers a power increase of up to 230 bhp and includes a Cosworth free flow sports exhaust system manufactured in partnership with Nameless Performance, a “Power by Cosworth” calibration kit, a new Cosworth vehicle badge and authentication plaque as well as a Cosworth performance filtration solution and a low temperature thermostat that works together with the exhaust and calibration kit.
Using the same approach as that of Formula One or sports car racing in general, Cosworth has come out with an offering that is guaranteed to excite professionals and enthusiasts alike. The Cosworth Power Packages offer power upgrades that no other than the company’s already legendary engineering team can deliver.
While the engine has been made more cost-effective, its performance solutions have been scaled. The engine originally comes with the standard 197bhp output but it has been increased to 325hp and hopefully to the higher race track configuration of 380hp. The success of these improvements is measured by the upgraded Stage, which uses and builds on the components from the previous Stage.
This approach is the only one of its kind in the Aftermarket. This particular approach also enables customers to have an affordable way to upgrade their vehicles. Cosworth Group’s Chief Executive Hal Reisiger stated the company has radically changed the way it approached the performance aftermarket.
The company is now able to deliver certified solutions guaranteeing performance and reliability as one system. This huge leap will allow the company to be a good partner for the many car manufacturers when it comes to performance upgrades.
Reisiger adds that they hope they will also be the choice for enthusiasts and tuning professionals worldwide. Cosworth Power Packages is available for three cars: the BRZ, GT86, and FR-S, plus the FA20 platform.
Reisiger reveals that Cosworth will continue to offer these power upgrade solutions that will hopefully help drivers in unlocking the full performance potential of their cars.
What makes this one unique is that the company was able to create its Power Packages by transferring knowledge gained from fifty years of experience that include motorsport engineering excellence and the company’s experience in Formula One. This is the reason why Cosworth remains to be the leader in setting the standard for the aftermarket products, Reisiger concludes.
