2013 Scion FRS Turbo – Transmission work & Calibration
Category : Automobile Performance
2013 FRS Turbo, rectifying work from another shop on this manual transmission. Seems that synchros went south on this transmission, time to open her up and see what is the verdict.
After inspection 2 and 6th gear are the only ones that look decent. Synchros, hib sliders and the other gears will have to be replaced in order to bring this transmission right away. Well time to build a bulletproof one down the road. As for now we also fitted the transmission with a new SPEC light flywheel.
After the install of a good working transmission along with the SPEC Flywheel, it was ready to hit the street to see how it feels. Oh yeah Amsoil synthetic 75W-90 was added to the mix. Shifts smooth as butter, Highly recommend adding this oil to your differential or transmission.
211whp run in the peach color was a run that was done back in 3/9/17.
Both of these runs were done at the same boost level 9psi, but the one the one that generated 218whp / 248wtq (purple lines) was done in a more hot ambient as per descriptions in the video. What a difference a proper working flywheel can make and when the right care if given all around to the the vehicle.
