Turbosmart onboard with Ultimate Tunes WRX


Canberra-based Ultimate Tunes are no stranger to competitive motorsport. Their time attack Subaru WRX (owned and driven by Jason Hart) finished in the top ten in the highly competitive Open Class at the 2011 World Time Attack Challenge.

The car showcases the workshop’s know-how and expertise and features an EJ22 engine taken out to 2.4L with forged internals mated to a PPG gearbox.

For this year’s event, the car will get a Cosworth dry sump, low mount intercooler, full custom exhaust system along with a Turbosmart Raceport BOV and Hyper-Gate 45 wastegates.

The car will again compete in the Open Class and we wish Jason and the Ultimate Tunes team the best of luck!

  1. this seriously makes no sense to me. the low mount is hooked up to another turbo? even if its a compound turbo it looks like a huge turbo is spooling a much smaller turbo? WTF is going on here? Then you say zilch about the turbo setup and talk about everything else that means almost nothing since the wow factor is in the turbo kit….. SMH explain this
