At 2,700 pounds, the Subaru BRZ (Scion FR-S/Toyota GT-86) is one of the most lithe RWD performance cars on the market today. It’s just too bad it puts out only 200 horsepower. But Weapons Grade Performance in Connecticut is looking to fix this by swapping out the four-cylinder boxer engine with a hairier 6.0L LS2 engine straight out of a Pontiac GTO. The heart transplant is expected to add some 200 extra pounds, but with the big V8 pushing out some 400 stock horsepower, it’s kind of hard to care.
As far as the world knows, this project still has some ways to go, but we can’t wait to see what the finished product will look like. Now, if only GM would put the Chevrolet Code 130R into production, then we might actually see something like this from the factory.
