@HKS Australia, what exhaust system is this kit tested with? Makes a big difference if it's being tested with a stock system or a Hi-Power system, stock header vs. aftermarket, etc.
Stock headers with HKS "Cat Back" exhaust.

They don't actually specify which and I can't see either making a difference as neither will cause a restriction at this power level. The supercharger has an air inlet restrictor to limit power so the exhaust will still have plenty of flow left.

why in the world would you mount the supercharger in front of the intake throttle body?!

They are a great manufacturer, but at this point you are paying a premium for the brand

Well, figure out another way to get the pulley in a good position for the belt (with room for a tensioner and/or idler puller) and good belt wrap.

It's not like they can just put it anywhere.

The Vortech is in roughly the same location. I have built a custom Rotrex setup before, and I was thinking about designing one for the BRZ/FRS. I gave this some thought, and would end up putting the SC in the same location.

Looks like it's going for $4.5K. Anyone install one yet?

It looks like more vendors are offering these kits.

- Has anyone in the U.S. installed one yet?
- Does anyone know what the supplied compressor is capable of handling?

Evasive has one in their shop car (the FR-S, not their BRZ). Was the cover story on DSport recently as well. Think they made ~220 hp? They post on here, ask them or ?

I think they developed a custom kit (probably which supported the development of the kit now for sale).

I think the initial price speculation scared people away. But ~$4500 doesn't seem too terrible. I wonder how much power this system can support though.

Their products can be overhyped. To me the design is obnoxious and awkward (my opinion). The whole "Restrictor" on the compressor intake is also a turn off.

Evasive I think is having fun with the kit though. Maybe they can chime in.

I think it only produced about +50-60hp but the price point is competitive and it's good quality components. The compressor looks a little small so I wonder how much HP it can support.

I wonder what's included in the kit. It doesn't seem like a tune but I don't know about injectors or any other additional parts. I'm wondering how the throttle response is relative to a Vortech.

Here is the write up on the blog:

HKS make quality products, I agree the design is not great but I would rather spend a little extra on a brand that is proven... As for hp I've read that the same kit can reach 400hp, not that I want that much, but its available if ever wanted. As I said I've read somewhere I can't seem to find some quality information.

I have to admit I'm interested, I mean AVO And vortech are still up there as choices but I feel if I find more info on this I would get the HKS.

Not always the case. They seem to have a ton of hype though.
