Turbosmart has developed a range of Boost Reference Adapter (BRA) kits for a variety of late model turbocharged vehicles. These kits are designed to provide access to a reliable vacuum source in vehicles with solenoid-controlled turbocharger accessories.
Why did we make them?
Many modern turbocharged vehicles have opted for solenoid-controlled wastegates and blow-off valves in order to achieve the best possible emissions and economy numbers. Unfortunately, these systems can limit performance, and prevent owners from running traditional vacuum-operated components, such as blow-off valves or boost gauges. Previously, the only ways to obtain a vacuum source on such vehicles involved destructive methods, such as tapping into the manifold. Turbosmart’s BRAs are a plug-and-play solution that can be easily reversible, if needed.
What do they do?
Turbosmart’s BRAs connect to the car’s MAP sensor, placing a billet block between the sensor and its mounting. This allows access to a vacuum source, while still allowing the MAP sensor to work without obstruction.
What cars do they fit?
We have a number of different kits for the following vehicles (Make/Model – Part Number):
- Ford F-150 3.5 EcoBoost (2013-current) – TS-0720-1005
- Ford Fiesta EcoBoost/ST – TS-0720-1003
- Ford Mustang EcoBoost – TS-0720-1004
- VW Golf GTI/R – TS-0720-1002
BRAs for the Mini Cooper S (R56) and VW Golf Mk7 GTI/R, plus many more models, will be available soon.
What makes them great?
With a precision-machined billet aluminum construction, Turbosmart’s BRAs are durable and fit perfectly.
The BRA has two ports, which can be used for any vacuum operated accessories, including Internal Wastegate Actuators, blow-off valves and boost gauges.
How much are they?
These BRA kits have an MSRP of $44.99.
