Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge Previewed in Video
The Scion Tuner Challenge is back, and this time, the tuners in the competition are bringing their skills to the all-new Scion FR-S. All three were given a stock 2013 Scion FR-S, $15,000, and just 3 months to complete their build.

The finished vehicles will be unveiled on October 31st at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Here is a quick look at the 3 tuners who are competing for this year's grand prize of $10,000!

When will this be available to watch?

In for $15,000 budget results. Hopefully there's some serious GO along with the show.

with 15k, a twincharger system and fully programmable ECU is feasible. however, knowing what SEMA and scion are all about, the winner will be the one who spends 15k on aero parts, chrome 20" wheels and a GT wing.

what I would do with 15k.... :(

This could be pretty sick, half the budget on FI, tune, and a clutch. The other half on wheels tires and cosmetics.

Oversized rims, booming sound systems, half-assed forced induction kits, shitty suspension, terrible paint job, GT wing, non aero-dynamic areo parts, and chrome, lots and lots of chrome, or matte, lots and lots of matte....

I think we found our winner!

Seriously, SEMA cars suck. It's like an official 2 Fast 2 Furious convention.

I gotta agree with that. If it were "who can build the fastest car to go around X racetrack with $15,000 and a Scion FR-S" I'd be a lot more intrigued. Oh well, hopefully we'll get some inspiration for other facets of the car than just performance.

ZetaVI 10-20-2012 03:40 PM

I'll watch just for the sake of seeing what they'll do the FR-S cause I have some hope but man that was a pretty lame teaser tbh.

I don't want to be negative about it.

We would love to do this, $15k is a lot of money to upgrade an already good car.

xbladex0 10-21-2012 01:36 AM

Hopefully it's not some riced out crap... and hopefully these are "real" tuners i've never head of these people before in my life..

Turbowned 10-21-2012 11:06 AM

Well I already know what I'm gonna do with the first $15k when I get my BRZ, but it wouldn't be anything to win SEMA recognition, it would just look classy and sexy, and perform better than stock.

fitcious 10-22-2012 12:38 AM

I would use that money to locate a LFA owner and ask to rent the LFA to be in the show and say the FRS transformed into a $300k supercar.
