Calling on the talents of Road Race Motorsports the Suzuki’s J20A engine has been boosted via a 16G GT3 turbo and Tial 38mm wastegate, all part of Road Race’s proprietary turbo kit. Already a B-segment leader with 143 horsepower, the pressurized SA20 pumping 7 psi deals out an impressive 221 horsepower. Torque also springs to life, jumping from 136 lbs-ft to 208.

Helping to control this significant upgrade in horsepower are Road Race’s GRIP springs, rear sway bar, slotted front rotors and performance brake pads. An oil filler cap and battery tie-down, all fabbed from billet, are supplied by Suzuki’s in-house parts group.

To attain an urban two-tone look Road Race installed its own CarbonTrix carbon fiber hood and provided the SX4’s roof and A, B, C and D pillars with a complimentary dark metallic gray finish. Suzuki’s Quicksilver metallic remains the primary color south of the greenhouse, visually meshing with the SX4-t’s Rota’s 17-inch five-spoke rims.

With a subtle approach to visual differentiation on the outside, Suzuki kept the interior similarly low key. Front seats benefit from a custom bolster, and both front and rear seats are recovered, featuring new fabric inserts which continue the exterior’s silver metallic theme. To further accentuate the SX4’s performance intent, the driver’s contact points are enhanced by a sport steering wheel, taken directly from a Suzuki Swift. A drilled pedal set is supplied by Suzuki Accessories. A Rockford Fosgate audio system features an enhanced amp, speakers and subwoofer bumps the tunes.
