Description Applications
The WORKS Stage 2 Turbo Kit for the FR-S/BRZ takes the performance of our Stage 1 Turbo Kit to the next level with the addition of an air-to-liquid intercooler and a higher boost threshold. Stage 2 is for those who want more power than what our Stage 1 Kit provides, but still wish to retain its simple and minimally-invasive configuration.

This kit utilizes a genuine Garrett GT28 ball bearing turbocharger to provide efficient, turbocharged power while retaining the OEM airbox, exhaust manifold, and secondary catalytic converter. Our team of engineers spent hundreds of hours in design,
development, tuning, and testing to produce a simple and reliable turbo setup to enhance the driving experience of the your vehicle. This is the easiest-to-install, most cost-effective, and least-intrusive air-to-liquid intercooled turbo system available for the FR-S/BRZ.

Notable Features:
  • 50-state smog legal under CARB Executive Order D-748-1
  • Genuine Garrett GT28 ball bearing, water-cooled turbocharger mounted rearward to maintain chassis balance and handling
  • Air-to-liquid aluminum intercooler with front-mounted auxiliary radiator
  • Internally and externally ceramic coated up and down pipes
  • Short length intake piping and efficient intercooler core to maximize boost response and minimize pressure loss/drop
  • Durable powder coated components with 4-ply silicone couplers and rolled edge hose clamps
  • Retains OEM airbox, PCV system, exhaust manifold, front pipe and both catalytic converters
  • Oil pan removal and wiring harness extension not necessary for installation
  • ~12 psi peak boost
  • Expect gains of ~90 hp, ~90 ft-lbs crank on 91 octane (R+M)/2 gasoline
    • ~55% power increase over stock
  • Includes all metric hardware
  • OEM/factory appearance
  • ECU calibration provided

We encourage the use of a high-flow air filter like the WORKS High-Flow Drop-In Air Filter with our kit. For track use, an oil cooler like the WORKS Oil Regulator/Cooler Kit ($50 discount when added as an option) and stiffer motor mounts are highly recommended. The significant increase in power should also be balanced with better braking performance like what our WORKS BP-1 Brake Package provides.

Please view our installation instructions for a deeper understanding of how minimally-invasive this system is:

An ECU calibration is provided which is required for CARB compliance.

This kit is not compatible with
right-hand drive vehicles at this time. Please see our installation instructions for a more comprehensive list of vehicle equipment prerequisites.

This kit makes all the difference. Thanks team!"

What are the advantages of a turbocharger vs. supercharger?

This of course is a lengthy discussion, however a turbocharger has many benefits over a supercharger. Efficiency is the goal, and a turbocharger uses already existing exhaust gasses to spin the turbine and create boost pressure. Meanwhile, a Supercharger uses a rubber belt driven from the engine and creates additional parasitic load at all times as well as poor throttle response.

Additionally, the end user has much more control over boost pressure on a turbocharged vehicle typically making more mid-range power/torque along with a consistent power band. Because the turbo isn't always "in boost" like a supercharger; this also means that there is less load while cruising around town or down the highway.

Is this turbo kit smog legal?
Yes, this turbo kit is 50-state smog legal under CARB Executive Order D-748 and applies to model years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Does the kit come with an ECU calibration?
Yes, an ECU calibration is provided which is required for CARB compliance.

How long does it take to install the kit?
Depending on mechanical aptitude, installation should take between 12 - 16 hours.

Does installing the kit require any cutting, fabrication or wire harness extensions?
Very minor sanding, drilling a hole and cutting a bracket is required. No factory wiring harness modification or extension is necessary! And no oil pan removal or modification necessary! Please see our installation instructions (link above) for a description of required modifications.

Do I need to remove the front bumper for installation?
Bumper removal is required for Stage 2. Please see our installation instructions (link above) for a description of the installation process.

How does this kit retain the factory exhaust manifold / headers?
Our kit only replaces the over pipe from the exhaust system, leaving all other exhaust components intact.

How do the battery and ECU housing handle the added heat from the turbocharger?
The exhaust piping included in our kit is ceramic coated which cuts down on radiant engine bay heat significantly. We include a battery heatshield in the kit, have monitored battery surface temperatures after track sessions, and have found them to be a non-issue when using the heatshield. The injector ECU showed no heat effects either. We provide thermal wrap in our kit to protect all wiring in the area of the turbo.

What power gains should I expect?
Each vehicle is different, but typically you should expect an increase of ~90 hp, ~90 ft-lbs at the crank on 91 octane (R+M)/2 gasoline - roughly a 55% gain.

How is the drivability?
It is very smooth, factory-like drivability and pulls all the way to redline. We developed this kit to deliver a power level to match the capability of the stock chassis.

How much boost should I expect?
Stage 2 has a peak boost level of ~12 psi.

Do I need to upgrade the fuel system?
No. The factory fuel system is adequate for 91 and higher octane (R+M)/2 gasoline.

Will the kit void my warranty?
In many cases the turbo kit could affect your dealer warranty for the motor which is no surprise. However it should not affect the warranty of other components due to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Consult your local dealer for specific questions.

Is there a warranty from WORKS?
There is a 12k mile, 12 month warranty against defects in parts.

When will I receive my turbo kit?
Turbo Kits are made to order and your order is expected to ship in 8-10 weeks after purchase. Lead times vary based on order volume and we will try our best to beat our fulfillment estimate. Thanks for understanding!
Order cancelation requests after 72 hours are subject to a 25% re-stocking fee.

5 of 5 Simple and straight forward installation April 12, 2020
Reviewer: Ibrahim FazelPoor from San Diego CA  
During this pandemic stay-in order I used my time to install this turbo kit my self. While the installation instructions do leave some to be desired, it is still a very good reference for the whole process. This was my first turbo kit install and it took me a good ~6 hours in my garage on jackstands and without air tools. This kit literally comes with everything you need but the tools. A few things I would have liked are:
Better design on the turbo support bracket
A turbo blanket for better heat control (which I ended up getting anyways)
Better description on how to fit the wires with the heat wrap (biggest gripe on the instructions)
A better placement design for the water pump (which is something I did myself)
And tuning available through an OFT programmer

Other than that it is very noticeable improvement in power. 10/10
