Crawford Performance was the first company to successfully engineer, test, and perfect a turbo set up for the BRZ/FRS/GT86. These cars come naturally aspirated from the factory and are not built for power. That's where we come in. We have packages available from bolt-on to hold-on.
The Plus 300 Turbo kit does just that.. it adds 300 Horsepower to the stock numbers, leaving you with 500 HP and 550 TQ. These numbers are the kit's full potential running on E85, so depending on your intended use and supporting mods, your numbers may vary.
Plus 300 Turbo Kit Includes
- Custom Blouch-Built VF36 Twin Scroll Turbo with a thermal coated turbine housing, available only from Crawford Performance
- Necessary Plumping and Intake, with associated hoses, nuts, bolts, shields, and gaskets
- Thermal coated 3” stainless steel Crawford Performance Down Pipe
- Crawford Performance Equal Length Stainless Steel Headers with Inconnel Heat Shield Wrap (rated up to 3000 degrees fahrenheit constant)
- New Oil pan with added drain
- MAP Sensor
- One of the Largest Front Mount Intercoolers (FMIC) on the market
- Boost Controller
- Free Crawford Base Map
Suggested Supporting Mods
Horsepower is a direct result of an explosion in your internal combustion motor. There are 3 ingredients that are necessary to create an explosion: oxygen, fuel, and spark.. so the bigger the explosion, the more horsepower! Our turbo kit takes care of the oxygen (air), but to maximize power, you must adjust all three components. In order for your car to handle the added power and heat, strength must be added to certain parts. Below are our tested and suggested supporting mods for this turbo kit.
The OEM motor compression is too high. If you want the Plus 300 Turbo Kit to perform at it's full potential, the heart of your BRZ/FRS/GT86 needs to be replaced with a lower compression short block.

Although Crawford Performance no longer does custom tuning, we supply maps for our packages. In order to load those maps on to the car, you will need the license that supplies permission to change the stock map in your engine control unit (ECU). Unless you have a tuner that can do this for you, you will also need the hardware that gives you the tools to do so from your own garage.

Drivetrain mods are a borderline "necessary" upgrade with this kit. If you are an aggressive driver, these are a MUST. If you initially skip these mods and eventually break these parts, they are easily replaceable here at Crawford Performance.
CLUTCH - It is standard in this industry that when upgrading your vehicle with more power, that the clutch is one of the first things to replace. The BRZ/FRS/GT86 does not come with a bullet-proof transmission like we have seen with other Subaru models, so this is a touchy upgrade. We have tested quite a few different setups in our white shop BRZ, and after much trial and error, we decided to have Exedy work directly with us to come up with a clutch and flywheel combination that is built to last.

AXLES - Throughout our years of racing, we have had sponsors come and go. The ones that stick are that ones that have product that hold up to our abuse. We don't support this kind of aggressive driving off the track, but we all know there are those that push their cars to the limit on any road. To ensure that your axles will survive this power mod, we suggest and have had great results from The Driveshaft Shop's upgraded axles.

E85 has become a chosen fuel upgrade for many cars on the road, from factory models to purpose-built race cars. It is available at the pump, priced very close to pump gas, high in octane, eco-friendly, and makes your car run cooler allowing higher horsepower numbers. It's not at every pump though, but the industry has adapted to this fact and has come up with a solution: Flex-Fuel. Henry Ford tried to implement this technology in the early 1900's, but it wasn't until "global warming" and "green" advocates became mainstream that it was utilized. It allows you to run E85 either pure or mixed with pump gas. We have honed in on all the pieces needed to run this type of technology on your car!

The Down Pipe that comes in our Turbo Kit is designed to meet up with any 3" aftermarket exhaust system. If you are looking for a catless full 3" exhaust system, we have designed one to mimic our infamous Gymkhana Exhaust on Ken Block's Subarus. This is a 3 part system, including a front mid-pipe, rear mid-pipe, Magnaflow muffler, and a dual Gymkhana cone tipped tail-pipe.

As we recommend for any horizontally opposed and/or turbo motor, the Crawford Performance Air/Oil Separator is your solution for that notorious Subaru oil consumption problem, as well as unwanted detonation.

With more power, comes more heat. The stock set-up is sufficient for daily driving and occasional spurts. But if you are living in a climate with average triple-digit temperatures, or plan on tracking your car on a regular basis, you will need to upgrade the cooling systems on your car. Since the track is our chosen playground, we have tested different set-ups until we narrowed down the necessary modifications and put them together in a kit for you.
