Genuine Guarantee and Fakes & Counterfeits WarningSay no to fakes, counterfeits & knock-offs !
There are a number of companies worldwide manufacturing and selling fake, counterfeit and knock off products that are blatant copies and counterfeits of HKS products, and often the counterfeits have what looks at first glance to be very convincing counterfeit packaging.
There is simply no substitute for the genuine, real deal HKS products ... and there never will be.
Engine power is directly related to the rate of incoming and outgoing airflow, and many factory intake systems are highly restrictive, thus limiting engine horsepower and torque.
One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to increase engine response is to replace the stock air cleaner or intake system with our high performance aftermarket product.
HKS’s unique high performance air filter systems offer an optimal balance of air filtration and increased airflow for maximum performance and protection.

Recently added are the new EL Meter Series - Electro-Luminescent versions of the current meters which are available in White/Black & Black/White combinations.
HKS Intercoolers improve both efficiency and power of turbo applications by rapidly reducing heat from the compressed intake charge before entering the engine.
All HKS Intercoolers improve both the efficiency and power of any turbocharged application by rapidly reducing inherent heat levels of the compressed intake air charge before entering 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.
The long-awaited return of HKS' CAMP system is now a reality with the release of CAMP2.
CAMP2 is an all-in-one engine multi-meter system that is incorporated with a vehicle's on-board factory or aftermarket monitor.
The launch of the CAMP2 comes just as HKS Celebrates its 35th Anniversary. The first generation CAMP was released by HKS in 1996. At that time, it was the first monitoring system of its kind allowing users to view vehicle engine information.
Tuning your vehicle’s suspension is one of the easiest ways to instantly improve overall Driving Performance.

HKS has utilized its experience from 35 years of circuit, GT, drift, and drag racing to bring you the cutting edge in suspension technology.
HKS Electronic Valve Controllers (EVCs) are state-of-the-art electronic boost controllers, with the most sophisticated microprocessor and stepping motor available for digital boost management that offers quick boost rise and reduced fluctuations in boost pressure.
The HKS EVC has improved boost stability for maintaining pressure at high RPMs providing increased top-end power, and a new mapping feature allows boost pressure to be precisely tuned for throttle + RPM (or vehicle speed).
The new EVC also offers a selectable kPa or PSI unit of measure, and a unique warning feature where if over boosting occurs, boost pressure can be programmed to drop to a user preset level.
The HKS EVC, Electronic Valve Controller, continues to represent the state-of-the-art in electronic boost control, with the most sophisticated microprocessor and stepping motor available for digital boost management.
Blow Off Valves / Bypass Valves
Blow-Off & Bypass Valves have one goal, prevent compressor surge.
Compressor surge occurs when the throttle plate of a turbocharged engine closes and the pressurized air is forced back into the turbocharger’s compressor housing causing the turbo to slow down.
Compressor surge not only decreases the spool of a turbo but can also damage its center cartridge.
HKS Blow-Off and Bypass Valves prevent compressor surge by venting the excess pressure when a throttle plate closes, thus improving spool-up & longevity.
HKS offers four types of compressor blowoff and bypass valves: Standard, Racing, Super SQV, and the Super SQV Racing Single Valve.
In July 1974, HKS engineered and built the first commercialized turbocharger kit for passenger cars.
Since then developing turbocharger upgrades and bolt-on turbocharger kits has been part of the core business of HKS. With over 34 years experience HKS has developed over 30 different commercially available turbochargers including ones that can produce 1,000HP.
HKS turbochargers are so wildly popular and versatile that they have been used on everything from GT race cars, to 1,500HP drag cars and even motorcycles.
From the HKS specific compressor and turbine wheels and blade designs to the their unique housings, each HKS Signature and GT ball-bearing turbocharger unit is race proven and engineered with the highest standards in performance, function & reliability.
HKS has consistently been the leader in turbocharger technology for the past three decades and plans to continue this legacy well into the 21st century.
HKS external wastegates are race proven units that offer fine craftsmanship, reliability and functionality for a diverse range of applications.
Each HKS wastegate is constructed with a stainless steel valve, die-cast mount base and valve seat, fully sealed shaft, and a high temperature resistant diaphragm.
All HKS Wastegates have a base boost level that can be raised up to 100% by using an HKS EVC or VBC boost controller.
HKS Wastegates are available in Standard, Racing, GT, and GT II.
HKS manufactures a range of fuel rail upgrade kits, fuel injectors and fuel systems.
HKS Injectors are precision units engineered to deliver the fuel needed on high-performance applications.
When an engine’s horsepower is limited by the factory fuel injectors, larger HKS Injectors can be used in addition to or to replace the factory injectors.
This allows higher horsepower to be achieved.
HKS Injectors range from 450cc to 1000cc, and are available in top-feed or side-feed.
HKS Manufactures a range of extremely high quality engie components, including camshafts, Adjustable Cam Gears, Valve Spring Sets, Metal Head Gaskets, Oil Filter Relocation Kits, Stroker Kits, Fine Tune Timing Belt, Oil Cooler Kit, Piston and Connecting Rod Kits, Head Systems, Lash Killer Kit, Rocker Arm Stopper Kit and Thermostat.

Adjustable Cam Gears
HKS Adjustable Cam Gears allow fine tuning of the camshaft timing to maximize engine performance and tailor power characteristics for various driving conditions.
Either with OEM or HKS Camshafts, adjustments can be made to tune an engine’s power band to the optimum RPM range for a particular application.
HKS Cam Gears are made completely of anodized Duralumin with nickel plated gear teeth except for applications with timing chains which utilize an aluminum slide with steel teeth.
HKS high performance camshafts are CAD designed to optimize torque and horsepower over the widest possible power band.
Each camshaft application is offered in multiple profiles, each with their own lift & duration characteristics to suit various levels of tuning.
Lower profiles offer substantial gains in power and a broad useable power band with little compromise in drivability. Higher profiles offer greater increases in power, but are tailored for the higher RPM range and racing applications.
HKS manufactures a wide range of powertrain components.
An example is the HKS GD Clutch Max Twin-Plate Clutch, show at right.
The HKS GD Clutch Max is the latest evolution of the HKS multi-plate clutch series.
The GD Clutch Max features the same multi-plate design and lightweight flywheel of the GD Clutch Pro, but also features a sprung hub (on most applications) and special engagement springs (patent pending).
