Say hello to this sexy blue devil! This is Crawford FR-S #009.
What is a Crawford FR-S?
The Crawford FR-S is a joint project between Crawford Performance and Toyota and Scion of Escondido as part of the Toyota of Escondido Action Sports program. We have used several different colors in the Crawford FR-S lineup but this is the first one in Ultramarine.
How is a Crawford FR-S better than a stock Scion FR-S?
We start with a stock Scion FR-S and add to it with the help of our friends at Crawford Performance. Scion has touted that the Scion FR-S was built to be a well balanced sports car that is fun to drive. We did not want to ruin a good thing. We set out to improve the handling performance of the FR-S by installing KW performance springs, KW front and rear sway bars, Enkei wheels and Falken tires.
We understand that some of the first parts modified on sports cars are the intake and exhaust, so we went ahead and took car of that. The Crawford FR-S is equipped with a K & N air filter and Crawford Performance axelback exhaust system. Check out the exhaust noise comparison between a stock Scion FR-S and the Crawford Performance FR-S:
One noted problem with the FR-S engine according to Crawford Performance is, “When the oil enters the combustion chambers, it effectively lowers the octane of the fuel, leading to detonation.” Luckily, the Crawford FR-S eliminates this problem with the Crawford Performance Air Oil Separator, which “effectively removes the oil from the air coming out of the engine’s ventilation system via a two stage process,” thus negating the problem.
Each Crawford Edition Scion FR-S is also individually badged and numbered; also, it comes with the Crawford Performance signature graphics which look amazing! (Plus everyone knows stickers add 5 horsepower each!)
