Schwartz Performance has a long-standing history of collaboration with Turbosmart going back almost a decade when Jeff’s famous twin-turbo LS2 Ultima GTR was fitted with Turbosmart wastegates and BOVs.
These days, operating out of their 10,000 square foot workshop in Woodstock, IL, Schwartz Performance develops track-tested chassis for GM, Ford and Mopar and continue to produce stand-out performance vehicles like this 1981 Trans Am.
Powered by a twin turbo LS9 motor using Turbosmart Comp-Gate40s, Race Port and an e-Boost Street boost controller, this Trans Am makes 1041hp at the wheels through an auto transmission and a 9” diff.

Based on a 1965 Buick Riviera, this project is intended for the Boneville Land Speed racing in the Classic category.
Powered by a 427ci engine with a GM Performance LSX block and Arias Hemi heads, the car will also feature a forced induction system thanks to Exile Turbo Systems and the boost will be controlled by Turbosmart’s Power-Gate 60 and a pair of Race Port BOVs.
We wish Rick and Nick the best of luck. You can follow the car’s build progress on their Facebook.
One of the most recognised teams on the European Drag Racing scene, the Red Victor Racing team will now be Turbosmart equipped.
Owner and driver Andy Frost holds numerous titles, including the fastest and quickest street-legal quarter mile with an ET of just 6.59 sec @ 220mph.
The car itself has been featured in many magazine and online articles, as well as a feature on the UK’s Fifth Gear program. Currently in its third incarnation, Red Victor 3 competes in the MSA/FIA European Pro Mod Championship and the team has tentative plans to head over to USA to compete in 2014.
Red Victor 3 is a 1972 Vauxhall VX4/90 FD VXR Spec. It is powered by a 539ci (8.8L) Chevrolet V8 engine producing in excess of 3000hp. The twin turbos will be managed by Turbosmart’s Power-Gate 60 external wastegates and the Race Port atmospheric BOV.
“We’re really excited about this partnership,” said Turbosmart USA General Manager, Marty Staggs. “The Red Victor Racing team is all about winning. These principles are very much in line with Turbosmart’s philosophy.”
“We’ve got some exciting times ahead of us,” said Red Victor Racing’s Andy Frost, “and we’re really happy to have Turbosmart backing us in our endeavours. We look forward to working with them in 2013 and beyond.”
What you see here is not your ordinary Nissan 240SX. Built by Nutek Forged Wheels as a project/show car, the 240SX was debuted at the 2012 SEMA show and won the Best Import Award at the Mfest Showdown a few weeks later.
For KEM Racing it’s all about big power, big torque and big trucks. Mike and Charles are renowned for the quality of their work and this S&B Fileters turbo diesel Ford truck is a good example of their work.
The truck is fitted with a Turbosmart Diesel BOV controller kit. The controller unit is cleverly mounted in an easily accessible spot on the dash.
The rest of the kit consists of a solenoid and a Race Port valve.

It may be green, but this Mustang GT, fitted with Hellion’s twin turbo system certainly does not lack in the grunt department!
Showcased at this year’s SEMA, the car features Hellion’s “Eliminator” twin turbo system. The neat and compact kit can take the power output to over 600hp at the wheels with just 5psi of boost. The guys at Hellion estimate the kit can produce over 1200hp at the wheels with a built engine and the boost turned up.

Anyone with even a passing interest in time attack will be familiar with the sight of this car. We are talking of course about the FX Motorsport Development’s Acura NSX. This is, after all, the car that beat the long standing HKS Evo lap record at Buttonwillow with an amazing 1:41.949 lap time.
The team managed to reset their record last year with an equally impressive lap time of 1:40.981. This year, both the car and the team proved that they are no “one hit wonders” bettering their previous record and setting a benchmark for others to follow with an amazing 1:40.379 lap time, claiming the Superlap Battle and Global Time Attack Finals outright win in the process.
What’s their secret? All the essential ingredients for a successful time attack car – low weight (1100kg) high horsepower (rumoured to be in excess of 700bhp) and a well designed aero (Andrew Brilliant). But above all, it was the team’s passion, determination and desire to win that pushed the car to its winning edge.
It also helps to have the world’s best boost control products. There is a good reason why the FXMD proudly displays Turbosmart logo on their car’s hood; the NSX uses Turbosmart wastegates, BOVs, fuel pressure regulators and silicone hoses. Engineered to Win – you betcha!
Can’t decide between turbo or supercharger? Why not fit both!
This fire-breathing wide-body Camaro is a living proof that you can never have enough power. Performance enhanced by the guys from STS Turbos, it features a rear-mounted STS twin turbo kit plus a supercharger plus a nitrous system, the car puts out 1400hp and puts a great smile on the owner’s face.
