Sorry for the reupload guys – YouTube made yesterday’s version SD… and
who wants to watch a car review in 360p?! Troll.

Dinosbacsi says:

How about the TRD with a supercharger? Better looks and more power. That
sounds like a nice combination.

Slickpete83 says:

Can the automatic transmission handle the extra power from the supercharger
without breaking ?????

johnnyhun1 says:

Which Should I Buy? Mercedes 190.

macdel69 says:

Why not a TRD Supercharged 86?

sharpemang says:

Are you kidding me? The TRD 86 cost as much as a base 370Z? What a joke.
Toyota always pulls some stupid move like this with their TRD cars or
“Special” Scion cars and then over price the hell out of them. They did it
with the Celica and MR2. They just put on make up and say they are
exclusive and never put any balls under the hood. Jesus christ, not even a
Cold Air Intake. What a joke. I’ll stick with the more powerful Porsche
Boxster/Cayman Killer 370Z.

iJobama says:

Can’t wait to see the Cosworth one in the works, supposedly 370bhp!

Gumnball says:

If everyone claim for it why Toyota and Subaru did not plan to launch a
more sporty version ? For 2015 ?

Tommy C says:

Just drop the hks kit onto the trd body and bam you got a good looking
quick gt86

James Bennett says:

I’ve got to say I would still go for the standard GT86, do the power
boosting my self ( or get it professionally tuned how I want it) and do the
better styling myself, because I can’t help thinking that the TRD bodykit
looks like a really cheap bolt on kit 🙁 Just my opinion

Tawfiq Kaley says:

270 HP or 217 ?

BurnDuration says:

Subaru and Toyota need to offer the 305 hp STI engine as an option.

Does adding a supercharger requires a calibration after? I know shit about
these

owen allen says:

TRD GT86 with an ls2 and t-56 swap 0_0″ that is goodness.

ModBargains says:

UK Mag +Car Throttle recently compared the #FR-S’ british cousin, the
#Toyota #GT86 #TRD against an #HKS #Supercharged #GT86. Die hards will
defend the FT86 platform to the death, but I’m inclined to believe that the
car genuinely needs more power to be as good as it SHOULD be. What’s your
take?

Want more power from your ‪#‎FRS‬ or ‪#‎BRZ‬ stateside? #ModBargains offer
Turbo Kits, Vishnu Performance Systems OFT’s for E85 and more! Call
714-582-3330 to go FI with your FR-S today.

L.A.1999 says:

HKS should have put the supercharger in the TRD

Tom Hodgins says:

TRD with a supercharger :P

118himan says:

The TRD looks the best but the HKS sounds better and is what it should have
been. but if I had the money id buy a TRD GT86 and put a HKS kit on it.

TOM FORD says:

FUCK THAT TOYOTA/SCION/SUBARU NISSAN ALL DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

capturedbytee says:

I mistook the thumbnail for an LFA vs GT86 comparison. lol

Review Guy says:

Those brakes seem wayy overkill for a car with such little power and
weight. Those are the type of brakes i would like on my supra. This car
looks great with em but the brakes just couldn’t be used to their potential
even if you tried.

But yeah i think the TRD gt86 with the super charger would be amazing.

I do like turbocharded ones better but i have heard they suffer from
heatsoak. either way…. boost is just what a subaru motor deserves.

gmax876 says:

I love your videos!!

Kirei Edwards says:

Why not a turbo .-. 

Berk Do says:

The Teota. ^_^

shadowwolv21 says:

the way i see it you can have all the power in the world but if you can`t
out brake someone then you won`t win, therefore the TRD version would be
better suited for a track

mati2400 says:

The answer is Rocket Bunny kit

David Cabrera says:

Not better than my evo

Mark Dunseith says:

So what if someone put the supercharger kit in the TRD car?

hacker pro says:

There is an 86 with a huge turbo that makes 700+hp somewhere in Japan

Stephen Morgan says:

With the reviewer on this, give me the TRD looks with the HKS power.
Please. 

Spatzicus HD says:

I love it.
