Sheer Driving Pleasure with the all NEW Kompact EM series to suit the BMW N20 & N26 Engines

Turbosmart expands the Kompact EM Range with a specific bolt-on upgrade for the BMW N20 and N26 engine as fitted to the BMW Range of turbocharged 4-cylinder vehicles.

The BMW N20 platform is a four cylinder inline turbocharged DOHC petrol engine produced from 2011 until 2017 and was a replacement for N52 and N53 Engines. The N20 produces between 115KW (154BHP) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) and 180 kW (241 bhp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) depending on spec and vehicle it was fitted to, from an aluminium block and head combination including a single, twin-scroll turbocharger, double VANOS (variable valve timing) and a direct injection fuel system.


For several years now, OE manufacturers have been using the diverter valve on the turbocharger system for more than compressor surge and, as such, found it helpful to electrify the once pneumatic valve. Traditional pneumatic valves required a pressure differential, caused by the closing of the throttle against boost pressure to activate the valve, whereas moving to an electronic valve meant opening up a host of virtually unlimited tuning and calibration options for the OE engineers to meet fine-tuned torque requirements as well as assisting with emissions and overall package efficiency.

This is where the Turbosmart Kompact EM Series of valves steps in. The Patented Kompact EM Valve technology means Turbosmart valves are electro-mechanical and, while fully integrating with the factory ECU and strategy, still provide the bullet-proof mechanical advantages and reliability of a piston-based, mechanical valve!

Kompact EM Award-Winning Technology

The Kompact EM Valve was awarded the SEMA  Performance-Street New Product Award in 2018 in the USA and was then backed up by the Australian Industry group AAAA early in 2019 when it was awarded the Product Innovation Award in recognition of the Industry leading, OE Plus style solution.

The Turbosmart EM Valve to suit the N20 and N26 Engines is an upgrade to the factory valve, replacing the OE Unit with a Motorsport Proven Billet Aluminum piston style valve with full OEM integration, via Patented Airflow strategies and a proprietary solenoid valve. Available in both Kompact EM Plumback Upgrade Diverter Valve (Quite) and Kompact EM Dual Port Blow-Off Valve (Noisey), there is an upgraded valve available now to suit your choice!

Turbosmart is always expanding our range of bolt-on upgrades for late-model turbocharged vehicles so make sure to check out our vehicle lookup for your vehicle!
