Best BRZ / FR-S / 86 Supercharger Kits

The Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S, and Toyota 86 are excellent affordable sports cars. They're small, lightweight, and handle amazingly. However, they could really use some extra power. Fortunately, with a supercharger kit, this can be done fairly easily. While another great option is a turbo kit, supercharger kits can be easy to install since no modification of the exhaust system is needed.

These cars are great for their light weight of only around 2800 lbs, and their great suspension setup and handling performance. However, at only around 200 horsepower, they could really use some more power. A well designed sports car deserves to go faster. Fortunately, with these bolt on supercharger kits, that can be easy to accomplish. Many even include a tune, so this is a project that can be done in an afternoon in your driveway.

We've rounded up the best supercharger kits for the BRZ and its siblings below. We've included both twin-screw and centrifugal style superchargers, and many CARB legal options, so you can find the best supercharger kits to fit your needs.
