We haven’t heard a whole lot of noise out of HKS recently, but it looks like they’ve returned to one of their favorite chassis of all time, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.
The 7460R Ball Bearing Turbo Kit is a true bolt-on to the factory setup, which is very impressive considering it’s a ball bearing turbo. The result is an impressive 430-whp with 398.70 ft-lbs of torque with boost set at 25.8 psi. HKS states that it runs perfectly fine on 93 octane with that boost level. And remember since this is bolt-on, the kit comes with the turbocharger, actuator, air outlet pipe, water pipes and hardware required for the install. That’s right, just bolt this baby up to your stock exhaust manifold.
We’re guessing that if you paired up this kit with a few other HKS goodies, threw on a boost controller and got yourself some dyno tuning you could easily and safely hit 500-whp. Now that’s a fun AWD car!
