Turbosmart’s Internal Wastegate Actuators are quickly becoming one of the hottest boost-control products on the market. Turbosmart’s actuator has a much larger working area than your stock actuator, which allows the fitment of more robust, heavier duty springs. This means you get much more control over boost. The boost curve comes on faster, stays flat, and because the Turbosmart actuator is less susceptible to exhaust back pressure, there is less drop-off at the end. To put it simply, with a Turbosmart IWG-75 you get more boost, earlier, and it stays strong for longer than your stock actuator could ever hope to achieve.
Let’s go over that again: More Boost. Earlier. For Longer. That, combined with the ability to swap springs and tailor your boost levels, means you simply can’t lose. That’s why Turbosmart’s motto is Engineered to WIN!
Because this product is so popular Turbosmart has expanded our range to suit more stock frame and aftermarket turbos.
New fitments include:
Ford F150 (2011-2012) Twin Turbo Ecoboost Black 5 PSI – TS-0622-4052 (Two actuators)

In their “Better Boost Solutions” section, the staff of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords magazine have installed a Helion Turbo System on their project 5.0L Coyote.
Picture: Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords.
Using Turbosmart Ultra-Gate38s, Supersonic BOV and a Boost Tee, the crew managed to get 811hp and 715lb-ft of torque at just over 7psi. They went on to extract 907hp with 802lb-ft of torque with the boost turned up to 10psi.
With CNC ported heads and a Boss intake already installed, the Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords magazine’s 5.0L Coyote was scheduled for even more cams and boost. In the March issue it got just that with a Stage 3 cam upgrade and a Hellion turbo system. To control the boost, two Ultra-Gate38s were employed along with a Supersonic BOV and a Boost Tee.
“The combination of adequate valvespring pressure and our dual wastegates provided perfect and consistent boost control, never varying by more than 1 psi through the whole run.”
The result: 907hp with 10psi boost compared to 545hp from the N/A motor.
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.
Two Turbosmart Comp-Gate 40s control the Precision billet turbos while Vee Port BOVs vent the excess air out of the system.

24 Outlaw 10.5 race cars lined up for the Street Car Super Nationals held at The Strip at Las Vegas. Driving his 550ci twin turbo Ford Mustang, Murillo qualified second behind Doug Sikora with an amazing 6.354 at 235.39mph
In the final round, Murillo went up against Rich Klann and his Dodge Neon taking the holeshot and the event win. In his interview with NMCAdigital Murillo said: “Incredible. It was everything we wanted it be and more. It was a hell of a race. Believe it or not, minus 100 pounds and the “pecker extender”, we were NMCA-legal, too. That’s what’s really exciting. I was so proud to represent NMCA there against the best competition in the country. It was good for us to get out there and do well.”
Turbosmart is a long-time sponsor and supporter of the Murillo Race Team and we wish them all the best of luck at the upcoming event at the San Antonio Raceway on November 23-24.
In the big-block dominated Outlaw 10.5 class, a small-block powered Mustang of Tim Essick is very quickly climbing up the ladder and successfully dethroning some of the class heavy hitters!
The 2003 Mustang uses a pair of Precision 88mm turbochargers with Turbosmart Pro-Gate 50 external wastegates. While this combination might seem rather mild when compared to the 94mm turbos used on the big-block engines, this hasn’t stopped Essick from progressively improve his times throughout the season.
At the Ford Fever Classic, held at the Maryland International Raceway, Essick was the top qualifier with a 4.28 at 171 mph, and the eventual winner of the event, once and for all proving the point that small block can be competitive at the pointy end of the Outlaw 10.5 Class.
With the World Cup Finals (Import vs Domestick) quickly approaching, Essick will once again put his Mustang against the big blocks and judging by his recent results low 6.5s quarter mile ETs are expected and possibly even a 6.4. We wish Tim and his team the best of luck.
Canadian Dal Sangha’s second race of the season got off to a great start with a 6.30@225 and a 6.27@226mph qualifying passes.
“The car was running great finally. The first round ended our day, as I left too early turning on the red light. The pass was still a good one, 6.28@224mph. We would like to thank Turbosmart for their continued support.” said Dal.
Congratulations to Dal and his team for getting the car into the 6.2 second zone!

An initiative of SBN (SEMA Businesswomen’s Network), the SEMA‘s “Mustang Build Powered by Women” project, is designed to highlight women working in the automotive aftermarket industry and to encourage more women enter the automotive aftermarket industry.
The project, from design to tightening the last lug nut, will be completed by exceptional women in the SBN. The actual build will take place at Source Interlink Media’s Headquarters in El Segundo, California starting in July and ending in August.
Several of Source Interlink Media female employees will also be involved in the build that covers all major areas of the car – from the engine, interior through to the sound system and paint. Once completed, the project Mustang GT will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The build starts with a completely stock 2013 5.0 Mustang donated by Ford. A number of SEMA-member companies have provided components for the build and it’s up to the all-woman team to put it all together.
Turbosmart is proud to have Kirstin Stone from our Californian office as a member of one the teams.
