Mazda 2 HKS Exhaust – Put more Zoom Zoom in your Mazda 2!

January 23rd, 2011 No comments

HKS introduces the new Silent Hi-Power exhaust for the 2011 Mazda 2. This new Silent Hi-Power exhaust sports 50mm piping into a 94mm HP style tip, and is sure to put more Zoom-Zoom into the quick and agile Mazda 2.

Constructed of fully polished SUS304 Stainless Steel, the HKS Silent Hi-Power exhaust system was designed for enthusiasts seeking the highest quality performance exhaust system with only a slight increase in exhaust noise.

For more information on this product, please visit our HKS parts section, and this specific exhaust.

HKS Hi Power Exhaust
Inspired and designed from endurance and GT racing in Japan, HKS developed its Hi-Power Exhaust system for both turbocharged and naturally aspirated applications. HKS has incorporated this new race inspired offset muffler and piping design into many street applications, which offers a greater flow and higher-PRM power gains due to the less restrictive design. This is achieved by eliminating unnecessary bends for the straightest exhaust path.

For turbocharged applications, the large and smooth exhaust flow allows greater exhaust velocity for better mid-range boost response and high-RPM power. Naturally aspirated vehicles also benefit from greater exhaust flow capacity as engine tuning levels increase. Certain applications are available in a Silent Hi-Power version which has an inner silencer built into the muffler. Like Drager Exhaust systems, Hi-Power Exhaust systems are made from SUS304 stainless steel muffler and tip assemblies. Depending on the application, Hi-Power muffler tips are 96mm, 115mm and 120mm in diameter, piping diameter ranges from 55mm to 95mm. Special Edition HKS Carbon Titanium Hi-Power Exhaust systems are exclusively available for certain popular applications. These exclusive versions of the Hi-Power Exhaust consist of a carbon fiber wrapped muffler shell, titanium tip, and polished SUS304 stainless steel piping.

HKS GT II 7460R Turbo Upgrade for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV-IX

October 28th, 2010 1 comment

HKS introduces the GT II 7460R Turbo Upgrade for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV-IX

HKS USA, Inc., the premier manufacturer and supplier of premium automotive performance systems, launches the first of its proprietary design HKS GTII Series turbocharger kits, the GTII 7460R.

As the first of the new HKS turbocharger line, the GTII 7460R incorporates a reverse rotation turbine design that provides the benefit of a bolt-on application, stock replacement upgrade turbocharger for the Mitsubishi Evolution IV-IX.

The special cast turbine and compressor housings of the HKS GTII 7460R allows it to be a true bolt-on upgrade for the Mitsubishi Evolution IV-IX by utilizing the OEM exhaust manifold. The HKS GTII 7460R is also a twin scroll, reverse rotation turbocharger. This design allows for a shorter and straighter exhaust path to the turbine wheel, delivering the benefits of less restriction and increased boost response while allowing full spool and stable boost pressure throughout the RPM range. Intake and exhaust port designs optimize the flow area to allow an increase in air-flow capacity while the ball bearing center housing rotating assembly (CHRA) improves low-speed response and quicker boost pressure ramp up times Use of premium materials include inconel® for the turbine wheel because of inconel’s resistance to oxidation and its ability to maintain its structural integrity in high temperature atmospheres. Special heat resistant cast material increases the reliability and durability of the turbine housing.

The GTII 7460R produced 373.4 WHP and 355.62 ft. lbs Torque with the boost set at 1.78 Bar (25.8 PSI) on 93 octane.

Tested on a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX with the following parts:

• GTII 7460R Sport Turbo Kit
• R-Type Intercooler Kit (with EVO IX fitment kit)
• Step1 Mivec Camshaft Set
• Racing Muffler
• GT Extension Kit
• F-Con V-Pro
• Fuel Upgrade Kit (800cc Injectors & Fuel Pump)
• Racing Suction Reloaded Intake Kit
• EVC
• Super Fire Racing Spark Plugs

The HKS GT II 7460R Turbo upgrade is available now through authorized HKS dealers and is designated for Off Road Use Only.

HKS GT II 7460R Turbo Upgrade for Evo 8 & 9

September 15th, 2010 No comments

HKS proudly introduces the GTII 7460R (reverse rotation) turbine; an original HKS designed and in-house manufactured bolt-on, stock replacement turbocharger for the Mitsubishi Evolution IV-IX.

As a true bolt-on upgrade for the Mitsubishi Evolution IV-IX, the GTII 7460R is a reverse rotation ball-bearing turbocharger assembly that utilizes the factory exhaust manifold. By creating a twin scroll, reverse rotation turbocharger, the HKS GTII 7460R offers a straighter exhaust path to the turbine housing inlet increasing boost response while allowing full spool and stable boost pressure throughout the RPM range. Intake and exhaust port sizes have been optimized in size and flow area to allow an increase in air-flow capacity while the ball bearing center housing rotating assembly (CHRA) improves low-speed boost response. The inconel turbine wheel and heat resistant SUH 22 cast stainless steel turbine housing increases reliability and durability. The HKS GTII 7460R produced 373.4 WHP and 355.6 ft. lbs Torque with the boost set at 1.78 Bar (25.8 PSI) on 93 octane.

Honda CR-Z Dyno Video – HKS Supercharger

August 12th, 2010 No comments

HKS is teasing us with a video they released of a Honda CR-Z with a HKS supercharger on the dyno. You don’t get to see too much, but the car sounds like a sports bike.

Actually, it looks to me like this video is played in accelerated mode, so that makes the car seem to rev faster and sound like a motorcycle. Why did you do this HKS? Let us awe in the original video, don’t show us something to trick us.

The HKS Supercharger for the Honda CR-Z seems new, as HKS hasn’t announced this before. HKS only announced Honda CR-Z mods such as an ECU upgrade, cold air intake, exhaust and a Hipermax III suspension.
