HKS GT800 Turbo Kit – Installed and First Impressions

HKS GT800 Kit for GT-R

After hearing about the development of the HKS Turbo Kit, one particular GT-R owner closely involved with the GT-R community was privvy to some early information on this kit. As a member of NAGTROC forums, his enthusiasm for the GT800 kit brought him in contact with other GT-R owners, HKS pro dealers and HKS USA. Having been satisfied with the quality and results that HKS had seen, “Se7enGTR” was on the edge of his seat waiting for the final release of the kit.

When the day finally came, the HKS pro dealers were able to spill plenty of information over on the NAGTROC forums. They were confident that this kit would back all claims made by the HKS promo video.

Eugene from SP Engineering shared his visual comparison of the HKS GT800 kit vs the competitor’s kit and said, “The HKS GT 800 turbos seem to be capable of multiple things after simple visual comparison. This kit with proper combination of the tune and parts is capable of upto 900 WHP with quick response on our mustang dyno.”

Sean from Iveytune said, “Coming from my experience with the HKS 7640R turbos, I can assume the kit is easily capable of 800+ whp with very quick spool. These turbos have sweet spots after 24 psi. Each turbo flows 52 lbs/min and will max out around 500whp depending on the dynos. We will be testing our kit with shop car soon and will share the result with NAGTROC.”

Jotech Motosports built and delievered 2 kits to customers. Kenny@Jotech said, “We will let the customers to see the results with the kit and comment.”

Lastly, independant tuning company (i.e. not a HKS dealer) T1 Race Develpoment/InjectorDynamics, said, “As we tuned and saw the base result(600 whp 600 wtq just @ 19 psi on race gas) from one customer’s HKS GT800 GTR, we think there will be a lot of impressive results coming from these HKS turbo kits. These turbos are very responsive…”

Driving impression from the owners and the dealer testing will follow soon.
