Jamaica, so without spilling to much but can you share what R&D you plan to do with this car from your company?
I have already seen some turbo kits from JDM companies and a few aero kits, suspension and of course new wheel ideas.

We have a few company's we are working with ...new exhausts, intakes, body kits. Our first step will be suspension and wheels. Springs, then coils. We also have some volks on order for the car and some few other goodies.

Some great pics of the powertrain & drivetrain.

Excellent new BRZ / FR-S Drivetrain + Powertrain Pics

I am seriously excited about this car. I hope it has a lot of success!

My takeaways:
  • MT transmission will not hold more than the stock torque.
  • Low engine necessitates very low and reward front swaybar with long endlinks. They look to me like they'd snap.
  • Oil filter on top.
  • Coils on dampers (coilovers) on all 4 corners will keep suspension geometry constant, except that those front endlinks connect to the coilover so the aftermarket will have to support that.
  • Shallow oil pan, low total capacity.
  • Headers run under the oil pan (oil temps).
  • Steel suspension compenents. No camber adjustment seen yet. A lot of cost savings all around.

Probably this:

Quote:
There are two types of transmission and a 6-speed AT 6-speed MT. MT is a single cone synchro over triple-cone, a 4-speed to 6, in the range shift feeling daily rate has been increased from 1 to 3. AT is electronically controlled adaptive control was adopted. Adaptive control and determine what the road conditions and vehicle state from the accelerator opening, that control is performed in accordance with the intent of the driver. 3 provides a mode of "SPORT" "SNOW" "(manual) M", has become a mechanism, such as running can enjoy according to the situation by changing the degree of control interventions, respectively.

It has become a royal road to select the MT given the run, there is only one problem. It should be turned to what was assumed 205Nm (20.9kgm) / 6400 ~ 6600rpm which is the current engine torque capacity of the transmission. Would have been taken from the factor of safety to some extent, it would not matter if a little about, such as response to the large torque 422Nm (43.0kgm) / 4400rpm Impreza WRX STI is it has not been assumed, for example. But that the drive train, otherwise the propeller shaft and drive shaft and differential, and there is enough space in the AT it.

However, there is no problem at all levels, even if it is about fine-tuned 6-speed MT. So there is a commensurate need to put hand to the engine if you plan to give more power and torque, there is a story about "Me and the brothers are also enhanced transmission if you do up there." Paradoxically, it will also with a supercharger (MT vehicles) does not publish unless you solve this problem
I read that as a gear ratio decision rather than capacity

They have some other interesting threads about the trans issue. It sounds like we'll just have to wait and see if they can handle more torque.

Heres a good article on the subject:
FR-S Transmission

Just got an email from the local Subaru salesman I've been in contact with. They are taking pre-orders and my particular dealership is only allotted 8 BRZs. I'm torn, I want the car as a DD replacement for my Mazda, but I know I'm gonna end up paying MSRP ....

the MSRP is pretty reasonable. I bet the difference between invoice and MSRP is nowhere near high enough to worry about

Were you able to pick options yet? And do they have the final MSRP price?
