How to install a Sparco EVO race seat into a Scion FRS or Subaru BRZ

May 2nd, 2016 Comments off

Here we go with the latest upgrade to my 2013 Scion FRS! Project FRS gets a Sparco EVO race seat and I go over the installation process to get your seat installed properly. For the hardware, I used a Sparco base mount, Sparco side mounts, and a Sparco seat slider. Bolting things together can be can of a pain but this howto video should get you on the right track. I also go over the weight savings between the stock Scion FRS seats versus the Sparco seat and mount setup. Enjoy!
