When it comes to performance and quality – Japanese tuning house TODA Racing is rarely bettered.
Recognizing the problem of effective automatic idle speed control and the lack of vacuum take-offs when installing an individual throttle body (ITB) conversion on an engine, Toda Racing has launched it’s ISCV/vacuum tank kit in order to deal with these issues.
ITB’s are great for maximum performance but what about everyday practicalities such as idle speed step up when the engine is cold or when auto speed idle control is needed when additional load is applied when the a/c is activated etc? Or how about needing a vacuum take off for external devices?
This kit from Toda Racing is a bolt-on solution for their range of ITB kits, and can be also be adapted to suit other brands.
For your information, Toda Racing offers individual throttle body kits for the following:
HKS has launched a stainless steel brake hose kit for the increasingly popular Suzuki Swift models, including the Sport.
Available now from TDi plc, the HKS brake hoses are designed to overcome the issues commonly found with stock hoses. Most stock brake hoses are manufactured rubber which has a limited shelf life and should be replaced approximately every 4 years. This is because rubber perishes over time due to constant expansion and contraction through the cycle of braking. This can lead to areas becoming brittle, cracking or punctured. Another drawback with using rubber hoses on the braking system of any vehicle is the expansion of the hose, which causes a soft, or longer pedal and subsequent lack of ‘feel.’
HKS Stainless steel braided hose kits allow minimal expansion under force due to their construction from stainless steel braided Teflon hose. This gives a much firmer and more positive pedal feel under heavy braking, making them ideal for uprated cars destined for harder use – particularly on track days.
HKS’s Teflon PTFE inner lining offers significant durability advantages over standard PTFE or nylon inner linings. This is proven through independent tests to outlast competitor hoses by up to 24 time as long!
Many stainless steel brake line kits use stainless steel hoses but are compromised through mild steel or aluminium fittings. These non stainless steel fittings can corrode or rust due to electrolytic corrosion. The only way to avoid this is to use stainless steel fitting with stainless steel hoses. All HKS brake line kits use only stainless steel fittings to ensure maximum performance and durability.
All HKS brake lines kit use swaged or crimped fittings for maximum safety and reliability. The fittings also utilise a dual seat design that will seal with either convex or concave type brake fittings.
HKS has developed two kits that cover the most popular models of the Suzuki Swift up produced from 2004-2010.

Principal HKS distributor Torque Developments plc is delighted to announce the launch of a high performance, multi-channel universal car video data logging system at an extremely affordable price – just £335.00 plus VAT.
Called the ‘Direct Multi Recorder’ the HKS DMR is a powerful drive recorder that can keep visual records of incidents and accidents accurately, whether on your daily drive or an extended track day session.
But they key difference with the HKS DMR is that it comes supplied with a second auxiliary camera, which enables users to enhance their primary video and data logging with a second visual point of view (the driver’s feet for example.)
Versatile, yet simple to use, the HKS DMR comes complete with a comprehensive software suite and simply positions at the top of the vehicle’s windscreen, then plugs into the car’s cigarette lighter so it’s ready to use in a matter of minutes. Unlike many data loggers on the market the HKS DMR records directly to the SD card, removing the possibility of lost data.
Total recording capacity is up to 16 hours on the supplied 8 GB SD memory card.
HKS DMR Key features:- Recording
The main DMR unit camera incorporates GPS and 3D ‘G’ sensors, plus microphone to enable video and audio recording, as well as location, time and load data. An internal G sensor detects and records the speed (G) so that the DMR can calculate the XYZ amplitude for cornering G, as well as braking and acceleration.
The latest high speed CPU (Hiper DMR Engine) allows seamless recording straight to SD memory card without delay. Most data loggers on the market will have short gaps every few minutes in recording during which they save the data file to the SD memory card, making the HKS DMR far more reliable than competitor units as precious data can’t be lost.
In addition, no data is recorded onto the DMR itself – a unique feature for the new HKS system.
DMR Data analysis
Using the specially developed and supplied HKS DMR KSHSKHKSviewer software, it is possible to analyse driving more precisely. Users can then overlay this GPS information on Google maps to show speeds and track position.
The principal DMR unit is powered from the car’s 12V cigarette socket. Also, there is a permanent power supply unit included in the main DMR camera, which has auto power cut out to prevent the internal battery from discharging too much.
HKS DMR – Second Camera as standard equipment
HKS’ DMR is equipped with the 2nd camera as a standard. Users can position this auxiliary camera in a choice of locations on the car to maximise a second video recorded point of view.
For example, the second DMR camera could be pointed towards the driver’s foot or the car’s meters to record the driver or engine performance during lapping.
HKS DMR Video Playback
The HKS DMR offers users a wide variety of playback option. Users can print event reports, adjust playback controls, toggle between main and sub screens, choose between displaying the camera image, Google Maps or Google Earth Images on the sub screen, allowing them to pinpoint exactly what’s occurred during a track (or fast road session) and why.

The new HKS Super Turbo Muffler exhaust system for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII, VIII and IX (including MR models) is designed under the following specification:
- Low back pressure with quiet sound levels
- Suitable for stock power levels to high power vehicles with large turbo
- Low sound level for comfortable street driving
- Highlighting the distinct sound of the engine under acceleration
The HKS Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII, VIII and IX (7,8 and 9 CT9A, including MR models) exhaust system is a 75mm diameter straight design. There are no narrow sections in the main silencer or tail pipe to reduce exhaust gas back pressure. The pipe layout is as straight as possible for ideal exhaust gas flow efficiency, while the inner slit shape uses silencer effect slits to reduce noise by approximately 2dB.
Sound level and frequency were analyzed both inside and outside the cabin so that it does not prevent conversations and would not cause noise problem outside. In addition, low frequency “drone” noise was reduced to prevent uncomfortable noise inside and outside cabin.
HKS Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII, VIII and IX (7,8 and 9) Super Turbo Muffler Specification:
Tail tip size: 124mm (Titanium)
Main Pipe diameter: 75mm
These exhaust systems are currently available from TDi-plc for the following vehicles:
31029-AM001 Super Turbo Muffler for Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX, IX MR (9 & 9 MR): £745.00 +VAT
31029-AM002 Super Turbo Muffler for Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VII, VIII, VIII MR (7,8 & 8 MR) : £745.00 +VAT
