No news to report in terms of a potential IndyCar engine program with an OEM, but still, Cosworth has announced a bit of news today at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The release is below:
Cosworth has launched the next phase of its popular range of Power Packages for the FA20 engine platform that drives the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86 – representing another significant milestone for the company’s new aftermarket activities.
The FA20 Power Packages have represented a step change in Cosworth’s aftermarket strategy with a move from individual components to complete, fully validated, high performance systems.
Developed in-house, the Power Packages offer enthusiasts and motorsport professionals the ease and reliability of guaranteed power upgrades that only Cosworth’s legendary engineering team can deliver from over fifty years at the forefront of motorsport and automotive engineering
Each successive Power Package stage builds upon and utilises components in the previous stage to offer drivers an affordable path to upgrade their vehicles.
The Stage 2 FA20 Power Package range delivers an increase of up to 80hp for Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86 cars, and acts as a natural extenuation of the performance upgrades delivered by Stage 1.
The fully validated system combines intake manifold, intercooler and positive displacement supercharger to create a unique design. It delivers a consistent increase in engine performance, excellent throttle response at low engine speeds and sustained performance increase even in the most demanding race track conditions.
The Stage 2 Power Package allows drivers to unleash the complete performance potential of the FA20 engine platform with Cosworth’s reputation for high performance engineering and motorsport at the very heart of the product.
Hal Reisiger, Cosworth Group Chief Executive, commented:
“We are pleased to make our Stage 2 FA20 Power Packages available so soon after the successful launch of our entry level package earlier this year. We have had an encouraging response to our new aftermarket products, which have been developed based on Cosworth’s truly unparalleled motorsport and automotive experience.
“The Stage 2 Power Package acts as a natural extension to the first stage, offering drivers the opportunity to upgrade their vehicle in a scalable, affordable manner with guaranteed performance. When Cosworth commits to performance figures, it is because we have dedicated hundreds of engineering hours and thousands of dyno and road miles to certify that every Power Package meets those levels. Our approach is unique because every component has been engineered and validated to work together and to achieve peak performance and superb reliability: this is the Cosworth advantage and what makes us the perfect performance upgrade partner for car manufacturers and our customers.”
