When it comes to modified imports, Suzuki isn’t the first name that pops into your head. But Road Race Motorsports, a California based Suzuki tuner, decided that the Kizashi was due for some upgrades, and the end result is a car that has transitioned from mild-mannered sports sedan into something entirely different.

Road Race Motorsports’ turbo kit is a comprehensive package featuring a 16G turbocharger, intercooler, water cooling spray and other necessary hardware. The package takes the Kizashi from a stock 185 horsepower up to 290 horsepower, putting the 2.4L four-cylinder in the same league as most rival’s six-cylinder engines.

The car made its premiere this past weekend on Speed Channel’s “Test Drive” program with host Tommy Kendall. See a clip of that show plus the official press release after the jump:
