In 1973 HKS was established in Japan. A year later, HKS produced the worlds first turbocharger kit for the Nissan Skyline (GC100) L20 engine. In doing this they were able to produce 40% more power than stock, all while leaving everyone in shock and awe!
HKS has developed their Turbocharger kits for every day street use and motor sport competition. They have tested these environments, collected the data, and improved on designs time and time again. HKS does all of their turbocharger manufacturing in house at their headquarters in Japan which allows for outstanding quality control. All of the turbochargers that HKS produces meet or exceed OEM specifications in terms of quality.
Let's get to talking about the different types of Turbocharger Kits that are available for the Evo 8/9, Actuator Type (IWG) and Wastegate Type (EWG), along with a couple supporting modifications to get the most out of your vehicle and the turbocharger kit you choose!
