HKS specializes in aftermarket high performance parts and is perhaps the most well known aftermarket brand in the world. Formed in 1973, and named after the founders Hasegawa, Kitagawa, and Sigma, HKS began tuning engines and cars. Their vision was to tune and manufacture engine components that surpasses OE Manufacturers.
All HKS Intercoolers improve both the efficiency and power of any turbocharged application by rapidly reducing heat levels of the compressed intake air before it enters the engine. By utilizing a special tube and fin design, the intercooler acts as a large heat exchanger that dissipates the heat generated by the compression of the intake charge without creating reductions in boost pressure or response.
HKS has increased the size of the core over stock to increase the air flow over the core. Core end tanks have been designed to flow the compressed air evenly across the whole intercooler core. This will maximize reduction of intake air temperature which increases air density. Increasing the range of fueling and ignition setting making it possible to deliver more power and torque.
Type R intercooler kits are designed for track use and ideally suited to aftermarket turbo's and large power applications.See Less...
