Scion FR-S Tuner Challenge Competitors Unveiled at SEMA

All three of this year’s Scion Tuner Challenge entries have made their way to the 2014 SEMA Show.

The Japanese automaker tasked three different publications to build their vision of the ultimate FR-S, with all three putting a heavy influence on performance. Starting with the yellow FR-S (seen above) from Super Street, the powerplant has been outfitted with an individual throttle bodies setup while Rywire contributed in making the engine bay one of the cleanest we’ve ever seen. As you can tell with the yellow shade, this project stuck to the TRD Release Series 1.0 theme while Rocket Bunny widebody fenders were also added to accommodate the custom BBS LM wheels.

Next to the Super Street FR-S is the GT Channel Mine’s FR-S concept, sporting a supercharger kit from HKS. Helping the supercharged engine breathe is a Ganador exhaust and 5 Zigen straight pipe while exterior modifications include an Esprit front lip spoiler, side skirts and fenders from TRD, Avest rear wing and side mirrors while Seibon contributed with a carbon fiber hood, rear diffuser and trunk cover. On all four wheels are new Volk Racing ZE40 wheels in matte blue gunmetal finish, wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza rubber. The GT Channel FR-S focused on its suspension modifications, with Whiteline’s entire catalog getting bolted on, complementing the KW Suspension Clubsport coilovers.

Lastly is the Speedhunters Maximum Attack FR-S that looks as race-ready as the others. Aesthetics have been modified with Charvonia Design goods while the entire exterior has been repainted High Hiding White by BASF. While details are light, the builders claim that the FR-S now churns 300 hp from its 2.0-liter engine, rolling on 17-inch Rotiform BLQ wheels wrapped with Nitto NT01 Competition Road Course tires.

Check back with AutoGuide.com when the winner of the 2014 Scion Tuner Challenge winner is announced later this week.

    The GT Channel engine upgrades sound group (supercharger). Seems like if you swap out the OEM cooling system, you can create space in front of the engine for various after market systems.
