HKS prepped Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

Most of Japan’s tuners are focused on the arduous task of cracking Nissan’s Fort Knox of an ECU in its GT-R supercar but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about one of the country’s other tuning favorites, Mitsubishi’s new Lancer Evolution X. Turbo performance experts HKS has now revealed its full specs for the Mitsubishi including a 376hp version of the car’s 2.0L mill.

The engine pack consists of a higher power turbo, an upgraded intake manifold and a modded ECU. All these goodies push output to a license-threatening 376hp while torque gets an additional boost of 40 Newtons, now delivering a meaty 480Nm.

To make the most of the extra performance, HKS also upgraded the chassis and installed a new suspension set-up. Not only is handling improved but the car also gets a lower ride height, 19in alloys and a full carbon fiber bodykit.

If you only know HKS from the 'Fast and the Furious' movies, rest assured the Japanese tuner certainly knows what it’s doing. The tuner has been in the business of modifying cars for over 35 years now - during which it’s produced a number D1, Super Lap Battle, and other race series winning cars.
