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!

Last month we posted up the video of SP Engineering’s record setting pass in a pair of Nissan GT-R’s equipped with GReddy’s TD06SH 20G turbo upgrade kit. A video has now surfaced showing the details of GReddy’s turbo upgrade kit for the Nissan GT-R and it’s worth a watch, even if you don’t own one yourself.

Over the last decade and change GReddy has established itself as one of the premier bolt-on turbo kit manufacturers in the world. They made their claim to fame with many street legal kits for various applications ranging from Hondas to Nissans to Toyotas and Mitsubishis. Their single turbo upgrades for the Supra were infamous, and many Eclipse owners raved over the performance and reliability of their various 4G63 upgrades.

So it’s no surprise that GReddy’s TD06SH 20G upgrade for the Nissan GT-R has already had such huge success. Teaming up with SP Engineering, they have done numerous record setting 9-second passes on not just one GT-R, but two. Both these GT-Rs are entirely streetable, so it’s hard not to be envious of the owners. So for those having GT-Rs and craving even more power (we can’t blame you), take GReddy’s newest upgrade into consideration.

Video after the break, don’t miss it!
