Turbosmart History

Founded in Sydney, Australia, in 1997, with a range of just two products, Turbosmart and its unique blend of quality and reliability has become a world-wide brand synonymous with automotive performance.

Today, Turbosmart products are distributed in over 50 countries around the world and can be found in many world-record breaking vehicles in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Puerto Rico to name a few. Their achievements on and off the track are a testimony to Turbosmart’s design, manufacturing and testing principles. The feedback received from the racers and tuners alike contributes to the on-going development of Turbosmart products, reinforcing the philosophy of continual improvement.


Over the years, Turbosmart products have received praises from international motoring press and collected awards at various automotive shows. The e-Boost electronic boost controllers were awarded the Best Performance Product Runner-up at the 2003 SEMA show and the Auto Salon Magazine’s Product of the Year 2006.

The Fuel Pressure Regulators picked up the International Press Award at the 2005 SEMA show. The same award was also given to the new Ultra-Gate 38 at the 2007 SEMA show and the Comp-Gate 40 at the 2010 SEMA.

In June 2007 Turbosmart has turned another page in its world-wide expansion with the successful opening of Turbosmart USA – a subsidiary of Turbosmart Pty Ltd catering specifically to the North American market. In 2009 Turbosmart USA has moved into larger premises providing better service and quicker dispatch times to all North American customers.

In 2008 Turbosmart has launched an Engineering Services Program. Available to race teams and workshops, the program offers Turbosmart’s engineering and machining services at competitive prices. With extensive experience in the automotive industry and state-of-the-art equipment the Turbosmart Engineering Services Program offers services including reverse engineering, advanced drafting and Cam System.

  1. Dear Sir

    I have recently purchased a l988 Porsche 944 Turbo S. The car is fitted with one of your Turbosmart Boast Tee. I saw your demo on installation. But need to check how am I to set the boast from zero. do I shut down by moving the knob to the lowest and then turning it up. Can ;you advise me how many turns am I to do and what would be the maximum number of turns to achieve the maximum turbo boast without damaging the engine or turbo system
    You demo,. only tells me how to install but does not say the number of + turns.

  2. The adjustment will vary depending on your vehicle.
    Start out by turning the adjustment all of the way to the left and then one full turn to the right (clockwise). This will be your base setting. Make adjustments in 1/2 turn increments.

    Total maximum boost increase available will be somewhere around two times the spring pressure in the gates.
