I have a JR SC on my BRZ. Just what the car needed.

Everyone who seen it thinks it is a very clean install including the installer.

I just came from driving 10 years in a supercharged v8 mustang with full exhaust, headers etc etc. I love my new FR-S. Is it underpowered? Yes, compared to my mustang. Is it more fun to drive? I am starting to think yes. Will I upgrade it and mod it as much as I did the old 'stang? No, probably not haha. It's pretty great as it is now. Plus the gas mileage is much better then in the stang and right now that's a big one.

What about getting a port polish & changing the camshaft in the engine? I believe these 2 upgrades would give it some more power at least 25-35 hp... and its a very cheap compare to turbos or superchargers... Has anyone ever thought of this??

As far as I know, none exist at this point, which is why I asked the question.
