HKS Mitusbishi Lancer Evo X Gets HP Boost And Suspension Upgrades

The new Mitsubishi Evolution X is already a great performer, but what happens when you give it to a tuning company like HKS? No surprise, they've made it better. The HKS Evo makes 382 HP, about 97 HP more than the standard Evo. Even better, that figure comes at 6230 RPM, about 790 revs lower than the power peak from the factory. The grunt comes from an HKS engine pack that includes a new intake manifold, a tweaked engine control unit, and an uprated turbocharger.


But what an Evo is really about is the handling, so HKS also provides a chassis upgrade kit with new suspension parts. You can complement the low stance with 265/30R19 Advan tires mounted on 19" Advan Racing RZ alloy wheels. To give it the full treatment, the styling package has an aerodynamics-enhancing body kit, as well as carbon fiber mirror caps, hood scoop, side protectors and front apron. So all well and good, but let's be honest—if you could get your hands on a mint Evo VI TME, which would you really want?
