2013 Scion FR-S: Innovate Motorsports Supercharger Kit Acceleration

August 7, 2013

2013 Scion FR-S

After we dyno-tested the Innovate Motorsports supercharger kit now installed on Project FR-S, we made another visit to the test track to run acceleration numbers.

Here's the rundown for those that click straight through to the long-term updates and missed it on our landing page.

    So somehow it is slower to 30. Hmm.

    per the article, they're saying tire wear is to blame for the slower launch, and that the trap speed is more indicative of the performance gains.

    Well, that was a waste of money and time, not to mention the added complication and noise under the hood, plus added risk to the engine.

    As I posted elsewhere, the real gains will be in 5th and 6th gear with the revs at the previous torque hole. Those are the sort of revs that most folk drive at 95% of the time. I would be really interested to see how this kit runs on an automatic.
