The HKS DCT Cooler Kit for the GT-R was designed to enhance shift engagement and prevent overheating of the clutch and transmission in both street and racing conditions. It helps to maintain lower oil temperatures in the transmission, which extends the life of the oil. The kit integrates with the factory water-cooled transmission cooler, contributing to the reduction of the GT-R’s overall water temperature.
In 1973, two experienced engineers, Hiroyuki Hasegawa and Mr. Kitagawa, had a vision to create high-performance engines and parts that were not being produced by major original equipment manufacturers. With funding from Sigma Automotive Co., Ltd, the duo started their journey in a barn near Mount Fuji, Japan, modifying gasoline engines. The following year, Hasegawa designed the first aftermarket turbocharger for passenger vehicles, setting a new standard in the aftermarket performance sector. HKS continued to innovate, introducing the first electronic turbo timer and boost controller, along with piggy-back fuel computers and advanced fuel management devices, becoming a leader in the Japanese aftermarket performance scene.
