How is this engine the same displacement as the existing 2.4L but it is allegedly not the same engine already in use, as one of the videos said? Did they really build an all-new engine for the second-gen BRZ / 86?

I read in another thread that it's most likely the existing FA24 with lightly worked over head to allow higher revs and more performance. May just be a different cam and valvesprings.

My guess is that it's the same engine just tweaked to make it more sporty. I can't see them building a completely new engine for this car only.
