High Performance, Meets High Tech
The all-new RacePort EM is a High Flowing Valve capable of supporting over 2500HP with a built-in solenoid for advanced control strategies and OE-level vehicle integration.
RacePort EM Electro-Mechanical
The RacePort EM (electro-mechanical) is a motorsport quality, high-flowing diaphragm-operated valve with modern vehicle technology and motorsport smarts in mind. The RacePort EM combines decades of experience with the market-leading RacePort 50mm Valve with our Multiple Award Winning and Patented EM (Electro-Mechanical) technology.
The RacePort architecture provides market leading flow and reliability with a diaphragm operated valve which has proven to be the most responsive and capable valve of its kind on the market. Add to this the Multiple Award Winning and patent EM (electro-mechanical) technology which provides seamless electronic integration, you have a motorsport proven solution with genuinely hi end and hi-tech credentials.
Amazingly light and small valve designed for forced induction competition-level engines. The RacePort has race-proven credibility, proven in the extremes of motorsport and incorporates a diaphragm-operated valve for ultra-fast actuation and response. Add this response to the market-leading flow the RacePort 50mm valve is known for, and you have a proven performer that will never let you down!
EM Technology, Inside
Diaphragm actuation means lower sprung mass and a lighter spring combination for unparalleled valve response. The positive sealing valve means the instant the valve has touched the seat; you’re building boost and back in the game.
Part of what makes Turbosmart Valves the most reliable on the market today is our boost balance technology. What is it? Fairly simple, your engine’s pressure is fed to both sides of the diaphragm. This means both sides of the valve are constantly exposed to the same pressures, and to this, the backside has a spring to ensure it is always closed when needed. The only way to open it? A pressure differential is created when the throttle starts to close. Put, the more boost you feed a Turbosmart valve, the more it wants to seal and keep closed!
Vent to Atmosphere, or Recirculate?
Up to you. Turbosmart now produces our traditional vent-to-atmosphere RacePort blow-off valves and a recirculating valve we call PlumBack. Both valves provide market-leading flow, are indestructible when it comes to feeding them boost and both now incorporate EM technology! No matter which way you go, you can be assured these valves will do exactly what you ask of them, no matter the conditions.
Want a valve that puts you on the cutting edge in the staging lanes? Or are you simply upgrading your late-model pride, enjoying being fitted with an electronic valve from the factory, and finding the limits? The RacePort EM range from Turbosmart has you covered!

Frequently Asked Questions
EM stands for Electro-Mechanical, and it is Turbosmart’s patented and award-winning technology for combining electronic control and mechanical advantage. Intelligent channelling of charge air in the caps of our EM valves creates the mechanical force required to provide motorsport-proven valve actuation and operation while our proprietary high-speed bullet valve allows full electronic control of the charge air movement.
Vehicle manufacturers have used electronic valves for some time now to provide even greater control over air movement in modern turbocharged vehicles. While traditional pneumatic valves require a pressure differential to actuate, electronic valves can be activated independent of a pressure differential, and this is where some of the OEM engineers have found advantages in meeting torque management and emissions requirements with finite valve control.
Control. Because traditional pneumatic valves require a pressure differential to actuate, you may not have considered how opening the valve in certain circumstances outside normal operation may help you. Consider opening your valve just a little while staging for your next drag race to help fine-tune the torque you leave the line with. Add a closed-loop control strategy via your programable ECU, and you’ve gained some serious consistency!
How much do you have? The Turbocmart Boost-Balance system is pretty simple – The more boost you have, the better the valve will seal. It is that simple. The limit of a RacePort Valve isn’t your boost; it is the total airflow your engine can produce, and the RacePort valves have enough flow to support over 2,500HP! The RacePort is the undisputed champion, flowing over 330 CFM via a CFD-designed 50mm valve and body.
Originally, the Turbosmart RacePort was developed using Turbosmart’s proprietary V-Band system, which has been the standard for nearly two decades. We were naked, however, to adapt the RacePort to other commercially available flanges – the difference, however minor, is the receiving groove between the valve body and the weld flange. The Turbosmart system in this scenario would be considered the male version, while our competition and industry peers use the female. We now offer both to ensure our customers have every opportunity to fit their favourite RacePort, no matter what car or charge pipe they have in front of them.
Here is a handy self-help guide to helping you with your Turbosmart install and answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we get here. Turbosmart recommends that you get your products fitted and tuned by a qualified technician. If you choose to install the product yourself, ensure you have all the necessary tools and technical knowledge to perform this task.
