TurboDirect S.A was started in the early 90’s when the South African performance market was still in its infancy. In 1998 TurboDirect started supplying Garrett and Turbonetics turbochargers into the South African market and in 2008 they were appointed as the only exclusive Garrett Performance Distributor for South Africa and related territories.
With a proven record in building relationships with the top tuners and over 18 years of automotive performance TurboDirect was an ideal choice for a Turbosmart Dealer in South Africa

The video below is of TurboDirect’s Nissan Skyline drag car.
Powered by an RB26 stroked to a 2.8L engine, the car features Turbosmart’s Power-Gate 60, FPR 2000 and e-Boost2 boost controller. The setup is good for around 1500hp at all fours.
“We have done 329km/h with 1.7bar boost (normal setup for 2.6bar) the car still had aircon and sound then and was using a PPG manual stick shift gearbox.” says TurboDirect’s Chris Kambouris, “We have since managed to shave off 300kg of weight, added more power, and an airshift box. With this new setup – as seen on the video below, we expect it to break deep into the 8’s.”
