Packing a turbo kit and 350 horsepower, the track-tuned Toyobaru could be the ultimate track toy.
In Matt Farah's first Tuned episode of 2013, the bulky slap-head invites Canada's VCMC Motorsports to bring its turbocharged Scion FR-S to California's Chuckwalla Raceway to see how the hardcore Toyobaru fares on the track. The tuner built the ultimate weekend track car for the Canadian version of the Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge, in which it is currently tied for second place, and watching it on the track with a bunch of sorry-looking 24 Hours of Lemons motors it looks and sounds wickedly quick.
The nuts and bolts of the build include a motorsports-grade turbo kit and nine pounds of boost taking the two-liter boxer four up to 350 hp, a gutted interior, and KW Variant 3 coilovers. Let's hope Toyota and Subaru are paying close attention.
