HKS USA may not exist anymore, but that hasn’t stopped its parent company in Japan of continuing to manufacture high-quality performance parts. The long-awaited supercharger kit for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ is now available, though it may be hard to get your hands on it.

Evasive Motorsports made a big splash at the 2012 SEMA Show with its custom widebody, time attack-ready Scion FR-S. Lurking under the hood was an HKS supercharger kit, and the California-based company has finally had a chance to take it to a dyno.

Working off a baseline of 153.9 whp and 128 lb-ft of torque, the Evasive Motorsports FR-S hit 225.5 whp and 182 lb-ft of torque on the dyno while equipped with an HKS GT Supercharger Kit and a test pipe. That’s an impressive increase on the stock motor. According to HKS, its project car has a built motor and has been pushed closer to the 400 whp range, and Evasive plans to do the same for the 2013 time attack season.

It still remains to be seen how reliable forced induction is on the high compression motor found in the FR-S and BRZ, but those interested in more power for their GT86s now have several options. Of course, many will wait for the offering from TRD, since it’ll be a factory dealership option and could very well come with its own warranty.
