HPA FR450 IS38 HYBRID TURBO
The HPA IS38 Hybrid Turbo features a custom compressor and turbine wheel design capable of holding up to 450HP* with a flat torque curve from 3800 RPM to redline! Our turbo is a natural upgrade to IS38, IS20, and even IS12 equipped cars where the OEM units lose breath mid-way in the RPM range. Coupled with a major redesign of the OEM bearing housing, the HPA IS38 Hybrid turbo is the perfect upgrade for those looking for a significant performance boost with improved long-term reliability.

Driving for Area Motorsport in the 2021 season was Luke Handley. His car experienced a fatal failure with the OEM IHI IS38 during dyno tuning - the same failure commonly seen with other tuned IHI IS38 turbos on the market. The OEM unit was replaced with our HPA FR450 Hybrid turbo and paired with a custom HPA tune this setup ran flawlessly for the entire campaign leading to multiople podiums and the Class B Championship title!
