The new Toyota GR86 and Subaru BRZ are not being offered with the “big boost and whoosh” of turbocharged motivation.
There is a Toyota bump to the 2.4L heart which does suck in the air the natural way. Although the real-world horsepower output does seem to be higher than Toyota is, in fact, letting on.
Toyota bump into a 2.4L heart that sucks in the air the natural way, though the real-world horsepower output seems to be higher than Toyota is letting on. Also, FTspeed did put together a series of YouTube videos which are newly acquired Toyota GR86. It is one of which was included in a trip to Paragon Performance thus strap the car down on their 424xLC2 Dynamometer. Moreover, the car is very new, with only about 500 miles on the clock. Also, it has no aftermarket upgrades or changes yet.
Actually, the initial pull did yield a net 211 hp at the wheels with 169 lb.-ft. of torque. There are a few more pulls that were performed without any adjustment. Also, that number did eventually step up gradually to 215 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. There is an extra grunt that is most likely a result of the engine having so few miles. In fact, the result does encourage the engine would break in under load. Moreover, the group would prior dyno test a stock 2022 BRZ which is made similar wheel horsepower plus a little more torque at 176 lb-ft of torque.
Toyota GR86 – Drivetrain Loss
Not a huge number, especially by today’s standards, but to take a step back. Then to realize that Toyota does list the GR86 at 228 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Also, with the innate drivetrain loss which comes from powering the wheels rather than going to measure engine output at the flywheel that number is really quite a bit higher than was expected.
