  • My personal headcanon with putting that engine in the BRZ/GT86/FRS was that Toyota needed the Engine and Subie wanted to throw a Turbo Version in but Toyota fought them on it tooth and nail and by the time a decision was there from the engineering teams the Accountants Stepped in and told everyone that they're not building a Turbo Version.

  • Good luck with an aftermarket turbo for track use. More heat, more oil usage = more problems. Ask the dudes from Donut who built 350z with turbos, they did not last one day and both guys said after that they would totally have skipped the turbo part. Well I truly wish you better luck than them, but I'd stay clear from any non-factory turbo on any track car.

  • To lower the oil temp, first you can buy a better oil with pao/ester base, rise the oil sae is an old solution, the best oil you can use is the lowest sae that lubricates the engine and turbo (sae30 have less friction and lubricates faster de engine than a sae40 while mantaining power and gas mileage that you lost with sae40. also rising the sae rise the oil pressure and that increases the temp), As i think castrol sponsors you, they have the edge c3 0w30 with 60-70% pao base with a complete aditive package, its million times better than this 5w40 a3/b4 HC based castrol edge, its not good for track duty.. if you want to keep using sae40 for whatever reason, the edge a3/b4 0w40 and the supercar 0w40 have a 50% and 80% pao base with a lot of additives also.
