HKS introduces the new GT Extension kit for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X
MotoIQ Staff Report
HKS USA, Inc., the premier manufacturer and supplier of premium automotive performance systems, is proud to introduce the key item in exhaust back pressure control, the GT Extension kit for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. With the R & D information gained from theJapanese HKS EVO X, CZ200S limited production tuner car, maximizing the performance from the stock turbine was the primary focus of the new GT Extension kit. Replacing the factory extension housing, the two-piece, stainless steel GT Extension kit also includes a front pipe that bolts up to the factory catalytic convertor. The clean stainless investment castings are pretty impressive to us! No backpressure enhancing neckdowns will be found due to poor mitering and other shoddy bits of workmanship like you will find in those fake knock off ebay parts. HKS makes the real deal.
HKS has been able to reduce the exhaust interference caused by single-port extension housings by using two separate ports for the turbine impeller and the wastegate actuator. The result is a smoother exhaust flow and a reduction in backpressure enabling consistent and improved turbocharger boost response throughout the RPM range. We have found quite a bit of value in separating the wastegate discharge flow in internal wastegate turbos to be very beneficial in our own testing so HKS is spot on here, with some good engineering.
Manufactured utilizing a lost-wax process ensures durability and reliability. The HKS GT Extension kit is available now through authorized HKS dealers and is designated for Off Road Use Only. For more information, visit www.hksusa.com.
