About HKS

HKS specializes in aftermarket high-performance auto parts engineering and manufacturing. It is one of the most well-known aftermarket brands in the world. Formed in 1973, and named after founders Hasegawa, Kitagawa, and Sigma, HKS began with a vision to tune and manufacture high-performance engine components and turbo kits that surpasses OE manufacturers. HKS introduced the world’s first turbo kit for the SKYLINE (GC100) L20 engine in 1974. It had improvements of 40% over the stock power numbers. In the time since, it has become an industry leader in turbo kit design and performance.

While its roots are in turbocharger systems, the company currently manufactures high-quality products for various areas of vehicle modification including suspension, tuning, exhaust, and supercharger kits.

If you are in the market for something like a cold air intake for your racing machine or other vehicle or some other performance part you want to trust the company who designed and manufactured the part. You want a leader in the aftermarket performance parts industry who has a history of longevity and improvisation and one who has as its goal making you a satisfied customer and one such company is HKS.

Dissatisfaction with the high performance engines and components manufactured by the original equipment manufacturers led to the creation of a company dedicated to the designing and manufacturing of primo high performance engines and engine components. In 1973, this desire to make a superior product spurred Hiroyuki Hasegawa and his partner Mr. Kitagawa on to form the company known as HKS and to think it all originated in a dairy-farming shed with the tuning of gasoline powered engines.

In just the short period of a year Mr. Hasegawa designed and built the first aftermarket turbocharger for passenger cars and introduced the world’s first turbo kit for the SKYLINE L20 engine and now the rest is history. HKS has a compilation of firsts to its credit earning the company its coveted premier place in the aftermarket performance industry by introducing such impressive products as the first commercially available electronic turbo timer and booster controller, the piggy back fuel computers and sophisticated fuel management tools.

This is all possible because HKS is aware of the needs of their customers and they are committed to giving them what they deserve by offering them a product that is both reliable and environmentally sound and that meets the consumer’s requirements. They are able to do this by listening to their consumers and meeting their demands on things like the caliber of materials used, appearance, sound quality, performance and ease of installation. HKS and its employees recognize that this is a necessary part of their product development and ultimate company success.

HKS has been in the business of improving and designing parts for your car for over a quarter century and has been repeatedly tested in a multiplicity of venues like drag racing, road racing, rallying and of course high speed trials. Competition records using many “off the shelf” race proven HKS components offer proof positive that HKS has earned its premier place in the performance arena.

And now the piece de resistance, HKS now has a state of the art manufacturing and research and development facility that is 100,000 square feet and all designed to create the best for the consumer and allowing them to stay ahead of the competition. The list of HKS performance parts is extensive and includes such things as exhaust systems, oil coolers, fuel pressure regulators, transmissions, downpipes, drop-in filters, pistons, superchargers, intake systems and coilovers.

If you just take a look at the company’s policies: manufacturing HKS parts from the customer’s viewpoint, improving the quality of all products, acting from a worldwide viewpoint, creating a market and protecting the environment then you can see why HKS is a world leader in the aftermarket performance industry and success speaks for itself.
