ABOUT TURBOSMART

AboutUs

Turbosmart is a world leading manufacturer in performance accessories for forced induction vehicles. Turbosmart engineers, builds and track tests all of the products in-house to make sure that they are continually producing the highest quality blowoff valves, wastegates, boost controllers, gauges, pressure regulators, and hoses for both the track and the street. Turbosmart is the concatenation of two words that symbolizes what we want to achieve as a brand; to make turbo control smarter. We believe that every product that we produce creates a new level of efficient boost control for turbo vehicles, prolonging the life of turbocharged vehicles.

Established in 1997, Turbosmart was built on humble beginnings. Designed with a pure passion for race performance, the very first product, a BOV Type I was produced by hand on a steel lathe, by our CEO & Founder Nic Cooper from a small garage in Sydney, Australia. For many years the company witnessed significant success on a local scene, quickly becoming one of the most prolific names amongst industry professionals as a strong product with reliable boost control. It wasn’t long before the businesses fame spread and exports started into other markets. In 2003, only after a short presence of exports to the US market, Turbosmart won Best Performance Product Runner-Up at SEMA.

In 2007 the business expanded operations, establishing a North American office to handle US expansion. Over that time Turbosmart USA has taken on the race and aftermarket industry as one of the most reptuable brands, extending the Turbosmart presence as one of the most trusted in the market. In 2014 Turbosmart continued to expand its dominance in boost control by implementing a European office in the UK. Although the business was warned about a lack of market success for new competitors, the business forged ahead and is now widely accepted as one of the best in the market for motoring enthusiasts across the Euro market.

In 2015, Turbosmart outgrew its 6,500ft2 manufacturing plant, and the business moved to a brand new 27,000ft2 facility in the west of Sydney, Australia to help handle the growing market demand. As of 2018 Turbosmart exports to over 50 countries around the globe and continues to build up the accolades of industry awards from various associations, including taking a massive 6 Awards at SEMA 2018 for their revolutionary Gen-V Wastegate range.

  • Turbosmart Founded In Australia

    test

    Turbosmart was born from an idea into a reality. The company founder, Nic Cooper, started the operation from a small workshop in the inner-west of Sydney, Australia.

  • First CNC machines introduced in to the Turbosmart business.

    Turbosmart made the giant leap to bring it’s component machining in-house with the purchase of it’s first CNC lathe and Machining Centre – this was a necessary step to gain control of the growing quality, volume and prototyping demands. Turbosmart now operates nine CNC machines 24 hours a day, seven days a week – and yes, it still uses those original two machines.

  • Turbosmart wins it’s first SEMA Award

    Turbosmart is honoured with it’s first SEMA Award, with thet eBoost claiming a Media Award. Further to this, the award went on to receive Runner-Up Best Performance Product.

  • 3PConnect is Founded

    3PConnect is started as a sister company to Turbosmart to help expand the ongoing demand for Australian manufacture automotive parts into the United States.

  • Stewart Mahony joins the team

    Stewart Mahony takes on the reigns of from Product Manager to General Manager for Turbosmart’s Global Head Office.

  • Turbosmart opens in Europe

    The Turbosmart Head Office Export Manager, Chris Milne moves to take on the position of UK General Manager, in a first step to establishing Turbosmart’s base of operations in the Europe, opening an office in the United Kingdom.

  • Turbosmart outgrows its 600 square meter facility and expands into it’s brand new 2500 purpose build product facility to the west of Sydney.

  • How a Boost Controller Works

    A boost controller controls the amount of manifold pressure by changing the amount of pressure going to the wastegate. For example; if you wish to increase your boost pressure above your standard wastegate actuator pressure (typically 7psi), the boost controller must acurately modify the pressure signal the wastegate actuator receives by venting an adjustable amount of pressure, forcing the turbo to produce the new, increased boost
    level.

    There are two types of boost controllers; mechanical and electronic. Mechanical (gated) boost controllers offer up to two boost settings set by the driver and controlled via a switch. They are easy to fit, simple in operation and require little maintenance.

    Electronic boost controllers are a far more sophisticated solution offering a host of boost settings mapped against different triggers like gear change, time, rpm or a manual switch. Electronic boost controllers require a higher level of technical knowledge to be fitted but offer a greater flexibility and countless features.

    The Turbosmart Gated Boost Control Valve range is one of the best dollar for horsepower upgrades that you can make to your turbocharged petrol or diesel engine vehicle. Turbosmart Gated Boost Controllers offer up to two boost settings set by the driver and controlled via a switch. They are easy to fit, simple in operation and require little maintenance resulting in a great dollar for horsepower solution!

    The range features our exclusive Gate feature which improves turbo response by up to 800 rpm earlier in the rev range – this means that you can increase the performance and response from your engine without even raising the maximum boost level.

    Thanks to the Turbosmart Detent Adjustment System, stable and accurate increases in boost over wastegate A boost controller controls the amount of manifold pressure by changing the amount of pressure going to the wastegate.

    For example; if you wish to increase your boost pressure above your standard wastegate actuator pressure (typically 7psi), the boost controller must acurately modify the pressure signal the wastegate actuator receives by venting an adjustable amount of pressure, forcing the turbo to produce the new, increased boost level.

    The Turbosmart e-Boost range of electronic boost management systems are one of the most popular, powerful, and user friendly ranges of electronic boost controllers on the market.

     

    Turbosmart e-Boost controllers give you the ultimate control over the boost curve with  smart features designed for one thing – performance. All Turbosmart e-Boost controllers feature our exclusive adjustable gate pressure feature which improves turbo response by up to 1000 rpm earlier in the rev range.

    This means that you can increase the performance and response from your engine without even raising the maximum boost level. e-Boost controllers also allow the user to control 3 different aspects of the boost curve; the maximium boost pressure (set point), the spool up rate of the turbocharger (gate pressure) and the reaction time of the controller (sensitivity).

    Each unit is housed in an aluminium case for durability and strength, while a simple 3 segment display is used for easy viewing and navigation in all extreme driving conditions.
