During the unveiling of the Stout Racing Pirelli World Challenge Scion FR-S today at the 2012 SEMA Show, the folks at Scion had a surprise for everyone present.

Stout Racing announced that it is working with TRD to produce a supercharger kit for the hot FR-S, which will undoubtedly please all FR-S owners worldwide. Since the Stout Racing FR-S is competing in the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class, the TRD supercharger must be made available for the public in order for the race car to compete with it.

Unfortunately no specifications were released beyond that point, but the team is hoping to finish the R&D phase on the forced induction soon as it gets ready for the season opener on March 2013.

    Wonder what type of SC they’re runnig; centrifugal, roots, or twin screw.

    I hope this doesn’t follow the same path as the tC supercharger kit… what a mess that was.

    Care to tell us more about the tC supercharger mess, Johnny?

    Most likely will be a Positive Displacement S/C, so a Roots, Twin Screw, or Whipple

    Interesting.. given how high the compression is on this little motor (12.5:1) I cant wait to see the numbers that it puts out! It’s a great little car, just needs more power options.
