K&T Performance is working on a turbo for the KRX! At the KRX's release event a video was posted with a Kawasaki rep talking about how it's currently a mock up and hasn't been tested yet. The rep also mentioned that it's expected to go on sale at the end of the year.


There's also a more in-depth video on the turbo where someone got a chance to speak to a rep from K&T Performance. The rep says it's expected to produce 6-8 pounds of boost and 170-175 horsepower at the wheels. It will also cost around $5,500 to $6,000.

That is one mean looking Turbo! It's pricey that's for sure but you're getting a lot of power for it. This is great for the KRX because the Honda Talon is also getting a turbo from Jackson Racing.

Their Turbo will boost the performance from 104 stock horsepower to approximately 166 with 8 psi of boost.

The nitty gritty… This Turbo kit was designed and developed by Jackson Racing, which is a performance driven company who partners with Honda on many different race-related endeavors. Honda R&D staff partnered with Jackson on the development of the Talon Turbo kit, and they co-tested the kit for durability and performance evaluation. Performance numbers are boosted (literally!) from 104 stock horsepower to approximately 166 (Jackson claims an approximate jump of 60% more horsepower at 8psi of boost. However, we all know it can go higher than that… Honda was transparent about the fact that these numbers are conservative and the stock drivetrain is built to handle much more power). An all-new Garrett Motion turbo charger is utilized – this is actually an all-new turbo design from the ground up and it’s engineered to produce peak performance numbers throughout the entire RPM range. Jackson Racing designed the intercooler in CAD and included a high flow SPAL fan for maximum cooling of the incoming air. The turbo manifold is made out of 304 stainless steel and TIG-welded for longevity. The system allows for direct turbo exit into the factory exhaust system. To complete the kit itself, a factory ECU reflash is included to remap the tuning. It is formatted to run on 91-octane fuel, and the remap also includes revised DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) shift schedules to get optimized feel and performance out of the stock transmission. Finally, Jackson and Honda expect this kit to pass CARB testing so it will be available with 50-state emissions compliance.
