The way a first-time guest interfaces with your site is altogether different from how a returning guest cooperates. To enhance first-time guests changes you need to separate it from the transformation rates of your unwavering or returning clients and figure out what they see when they visit the site out of the blue and how you can enhance that experience. Convenience assumes a critical part in diminishing the bob rate for amateurs.

Post Re: Toyota gt86 turbo
The Toyota GT86’s weakest link, as has been widely reported, is its flat and uninspiring engine. The 2-litre, four-cylinder unit produces 197bhp, which on paper looks like a healthy amount for a 1275kg sports coupe, but in practice feels rather underwhelming. Aside from a lack of straight-line performance, the standard engine also feels pedestrian in a car that is supposed to excite, and it doesn’t have the torque to make the most of the Toyota’s sweet chassis balance.

The obvious solution is forced induction. We’ve tried an Abbey Motorsport supercharger conversion and found it to be just the ticket, but at £5441 the 270bhp upgrade didn’t come cheap. Alternatively, Cambridgeshire-based Fensport offers a turbo conversion, which starts at £4314 and promises a similar power increase at a more reasonable cost.

Technical highlights?
Fensport’s Stage 1 turbo conversion uses an AVO kit and should achieve, as an absolute minimum, 260bhp without any other modifications. The added benefit of turbocharging over supercharging, reckons Fensport boss Adrian Smith, is that further modifications can be made over time to release yet more power and torque as and when the owner’s bank balance allows.

With ceramic header coatings, uprated intake and exhaust systems and other ancillary upgrades, this set-up can be lifted to 320bhp, at which point the fuel system becomes the bottleneck. Add new injectors and pumps and up to 380bhp is possible; that’s a greater level of expandability than a supercharger would offer, says Smith. The power increase is also achieved without resorting to the expensive business of upgrading engine internals.

Fensport uses an EcuTek management system, which allows the driver to switch between four different maps using the cruise control stalk, depending on the level of boost required at a given time. It also enables such trickery as launch control and automatic throttle blipping on downshifts.

What’s it like to drive?
This heavily modified demonstrator runs at 326bhp thanks to its upgraded exhaust, sports cat and closed-loop boost control (around £1500 plus fitting). There’s a slight but perceptible added muscularity from just over idle, but the turbo really starts to boost at 3600rpm, after which point the GT86 starts to shift down the road with the urgency of a much more expensive sports car. The engine pulls hard right around to the red line, which makes for a useful power band, but anybody expecting OEM levels of response from the very lower reaches of the rev range will be left wanting.

Only in low-speed corners does the engine dip below 3600rpm, so for the majority of the time the turbocharger is primed and ready to deliver its urgent performance. Not only does the car now have the straight-line speed to back up the sports car styling, it also has the strength to unstick the rear tyres with a throttle application alone. The standard car needs a determined ‘bung’ to get the rear end working, after which point it rarely has the muscle to keep the tyres spinning to sustain a slide.

Perhaps more important than the performance increase, however, is that Fensport’s upgrade gives the engine the character and sense of fun that the standard car is crying out for. The turbo helps to release the GT86’s frustratingly untapped potential so that the engine is no longer its weak link.

How does it compare?
Add the price of Fensport’s mods to a well-specced GT86 and you’re looking at around £32,000, pricing it against Abbey’s supercharged ’86 as well as the new 266bhp Peugeot RCZ R, the 326bhp Nissan 370Z or a plethora of second-hand Lotus Evoras. The GT86 is the least exotic, but could prove to be the most fun too. And like Abbey’s conversion, it makes Toyota’s official effort, the £31,495 GT86 TRD, look overpriced.

Anything else I need to know?
Fensport’s modifications are very Toyota-focused, with show cars covering a wealth of products including the Starlet, iQ, MR2 and Celica. The amount of attention the tuning community has already given the GT86 shows it’s set to become a bit of a modifying icon.

Fensport buy the turbo kit from a US firm called AVO. There’s a choice of more than one level of tune and in fact we tried two different cars - one with around 280bhp and the other with 326bhp. Fensport make no particular performance or power claims because it depends on the level of other options you might want to select, including exhausts, ECU upgrades etc. The base kit costs £3594, which includes the turbo, replacement exhaust manifold, oil pump and intercooler plus various pipes, hoses and clamps. There’s also an upgraded ceramic coated turbo kit at £3,959.

And? How does it differ from the Litchfield BRZ?

Not as heavily as you might suspect, as Litchfield’s kit uses a centrifugal supercharger (rather than a screw-type) that acts more like a turbo in the way it behaves. There are two chief differences, though. I think the supercharger kit complements the engines natural character better, but there’s no denying the Fensport car has superior fuel economy. I know, I know, that shouldn’t matter too much, but I reckon that in day-to-day driving you’ll get 35mpg from the Fensport, but more like 30mpg from the Litchfield. However, because the supercharger has that mechanical link (and personally I prefer the noise, too) it’s that fraction more responsive and eager.

So that’s the one you’d have?

Not so fast. The Fensport has very smooth pick-up and - for a turbo - extremely crisp response. Personally I wouldn’t take thing as far as the owner of the 326bhp GT 86, which although it has a delicious flat-four burble, is also penetratingly loud. Permanently. What I did enjoy was the power delivery from 4,000-5,500rpm. No, you still don’t get a whack load of torque right at the bottom end, but by 3,000rpm interesting things are starting to happen and in that mid-range the GT 86 becomes a dark destroyer, the acceleration piling on at a rate that suggests a Cayman S would be kept very honest.

So there’s plenty more torque then?

This is where the turbo scores - it may not have quite the quick response of a supercharger, but once spinning it does force the air through at a good lick. So what you actually notice is the gain in torque and that’s where the turbo really hits home - where the cooking GT 86 develops 151lb ft, this one has 259lb ft to call on. Keep in the power band and it’s a rocketship - and a very controllable one at that. You’d think that might overwhelm the traction, cause clutch issues, but the standard car is a robust thing by all accounts (certainly the BRZ I ran as a long termer never gave me a moment of mechanical complaint) and the chassis’ low centre of gravity and relative suppleness means the rear wheels cope well with the forces involved.

It had a lower state of turbo tune and an automatic gearbox. Which was so much better than I expected it to be. Although it was short by about 50bhp compared to the other one, it didn’t feel that much slower and had a more natural, factory-standard feel. Still a good overtaker, and proof (if it were needed) that it’s very much up to you to decide how far you want to take your upgrades. This level of personalization across not only the engine and suspension, but also the exterior bodywork and cabin does at least allow you to stamp your own personality on it and turn it into the car you really want it to be. Fensport would be only to happy to help you with this…

Hmm, 326bhp is good, but what if I want more? Much more?

Fensport’s managing director Adrian Smith says the engine will take quite a lot of tuning. 500bhp is not unheard of from the turbo conversion, which is more than sufficient in a car weighing around 1250kg.

I'm honestly amazed there isn't a STI/TRD/whatever the scion equivalent is version, people have been pining for that from day one and clearly the chassis can take it quite easily. On the other hand maybe that's how they want to keep it - if You want more oomph there are plenty of companies that will do it and like this Fensport - exactly to Your liking and Your specs. My worry is not everyone who can afford such modifications actually knows what they're doing and they might 'ruin' the car by making it less fun. Power is nothing without control after all.
