Subaru BRZ Tunehouse Cosworth Concept Rendering

Australian tuner Tunehouse is known for cranking out some serious hardware. And this rendering coupled with a few ideas from Tunehouse insiders show what might be one of the world’s first functionally modified BRZs.

Company founder, Jim Ghelis, says Tunehouse’s leading suppliers are already developing parts for the . His vision for the perfect street-tuned centers around offering a reliable yet significant lift in power with an emphasis on improving the car’s low-end torque. That’s where Cosworth comes in. Ghelis says that the Tunehouse Cosworth will offer a real driver’s experience providing enough power, grip and chassis adjustability to suit a wide range of customers.

Major surgey in the form of a full Cosworth powertrain is in order to make this happen, of course. The 2.0-liter boxer will be junked for a stroked 2.6-liter Cosworth crate engine using a billet crank, HKS GT-spec turbo and a front-mounted intercooler. With a lightweight billet flywheel, EcuTek ECU and a custom Tunehouse dyno tune, it will easily put 330 hp to the rear .

Tunehouse will utilize KW Variant 3 coil-overs that are adjustable for height, bump and rebound to balance the new power against improved handling. anti-roll bars, bushings, an alignment kit, and a 1.5-way Tunehouse LSD are also in order. Rolling stock, according to Tunehouse, could consist of staggered 18-inch Advan alloys with Federal RSR tires — 245/35s on the front and 285/30s on the back. Cosworth six-piston front/four-piston rear calipers, with Clubsport pads, braided lines and a master cylinder support bracket for added brake feel will upgrade the standard brake setup.

It’s still a concept, but it’s one we like. In case you missed it, here are a few other /BRZ concepts from earlier this week.
