9 Questions with Turbosmart Sales Executive Bryce Williams

Bryce Williams is the newest sales executive at Turbosmart USA, so we figured he deserved an introduction.  He’ll be handling accounts on the West Coast and Canada.  When he’s not manning the phones to sell and support the finest boost control products in the world, he pilots the world’s quickest and fastest MazdaSpeed.

I thought we should introduce him to the world by asking him 9 random questions.  Some of them are car-related, others not so much.  Enjoy!

What is your favorite Australian animal?  Why?

The bandicoot, because of the video game I played when I was a kid.

What does your list of previously owned cars look like?  Which was your favorite?

  • 1995 Civic Coupe
  • 2007 Chevy 2500 Duramax,

  1. Fire Starter
  2. Multi-tool
  3. My dog
  4. A volleyball
  5. Plunger
  6. Machete –I’m big on coconut milk.

We’re pretty excited to have Bryce on the team.  Feel free to send him all the technical, sales, and desert island questions you like at sales@turbosmartusa.com.

Turbosmart Working to Combat Known Counterfeiters

We first mentioned the appearance of counterfeit “Turbosmart” parts on the market several years back. The battle against counterfeiters is one we are still fighting, but with the help of our loyal customers, we’ve made steady progress in taking out some of the manufacturers faking our products.

As such, when we’ve determined that a product is indeed counterfeit, through a close inspection, we’ve begun compiling a list to warn potential buyers of the some of the sellers that are out there trying to pass a cheap counterfeit off as the real deal.

A few reminders when you’re on the hunt for the best boost control products in the world:

  1. Turbosmart products are all manufactured in Australia. If an online listing indicates otherwise, it is a counterfeit.
  2. Turbosmart does NOT subcontract work to anywhere else in the world. Any ad or email that says the seller “manufactures for Turbosmart” is DEFINITELY selling fakes.
  3. The only surefire way to make sure you get authentic product is to only buy from authorized dealer. If you’re not sure a dealer is authorized, feel free to shoot us an email to ask!
  4. Neither Turbosmart, nor our authorized dealers sell on Chinese manufacturer direct sites, such as AliBaba.com, or TaiBao.com.
  5. Lastly, and as always, bear in mind that any deal that seems too good to be true, usually is.

If you’ve got a product you think could be counterfeit, or if you’re looking to verify the authenticity of a part you’re considering buying, we’re always available via email to help out – be sure to include photos for the best possible response. If you have additional sellers to add to this, please email Kirstin at kstone@turbosmartusa.com, and the list will be updated as necessary.
