HOW TO INSTALL YOUR RACE PORT  
Allow the engine to cool down before installing your Race Port  
Identify a suitable location along the intercooler/intake piping for the Race Port this will need to be between the outlet of the turbo  
and the throttle body ideally between the throttle body and the intercooler  
Remove the Race port from the weld on adapter by removing the V-Band clamp. The V-band clamp is removed by rotating the  
screw until the end of the screw is flush with the end of the V-Band clamp. Grasp the Race Port and push on the bolt head to open  
the V-Band clamp  
Weld the adapter onto the intake pipe in your ideal position, then allow the adapter to cool down  
Put the V-Band clamp over the adapter before re-installing the O-Ring seal and the Race Port  
Open the V-Band clamp and place in position. Tighten the V-Band clamp screw until it is finger tight then turn an additional 3 turns  
with an allen key. Be sure not to over tighten the screw as this will cause damage to the V-Band clamp  
Identify a standalone vacuum / pressure source from a port after the throttle body and connect with correctly sized hose to the  
vacuum/boost port on the cap of the Race Port  
Secure all silicone hose ends with correct clamps  
Start the engine and check for air leaks in the system

SPRING REPLACEMENT  
The Race Port has a variety of springs to suit different vacuum levels. Different tuning levels produce different levels of idle vacuum.  
The Race Port is fitted with a standard spring which will remain closed until the engine produces more than 17 in/Hg. Using this spring  
on an engine which produces less vacuum will reduce the response of the Race Port. Turbosmart has a range of springs to suit different  
vacuum levels to ensure high levels response from the Race Port. Please visit our website – www.turbosmart.com.au for further details.  
Allow the engine to cool down before removing your Race Port from the intake piping  
Remove the dash 4 nipple on the top cap with a 16mm spanner  
Using a press or vice, clamp the top cap to the base ensuring not to damage the cap surface  
Slowly remove the 6 M6X10 button head screws with a 4mm allen key  
The cap is under spring tension, slowly release the clamp to open the Race port  
Replace the springs. Make sure that the diaphragm bead is inside the diaphragm groove on the base  
Align the stem inside the piston and the stem guide in the top cap  
Using a press or a vice, slowly push the cap onto the base, making sure the screw holes in the cap line up with the base  
Replace the 6 M6X10 button head screws and refit the dash 4 vacuum nipple  
Re-install the Race Port onto the intake piping  
Start the engine and check for leaks in the Race port. Make sure the valve is functioning properly by revving the engine and  
watching the valve piston move

TROUBLE SHOOTING  
The following points should be checked if you find that your engine is dipping below normal idle, stalling or if the Race Port is functioning  
poorly. Please note, the following checks will cure 99% of problems experienced with a Race Port.  
Check the vacuum hose for splits, cracks, loose connection, kinking or any obstruction old or fatigued hose may collapse under  
vacuum causing an obstruction  
With the engine running remove the vacuum / pressure hose from the nipple in the cap of the Race Port, there should a loud  
hissing sound. The engine should idle poorly, double check by covering the end of the hose with your finger otherwise the hose  
is blocked  
Ensure that the vacuum / pressure source is not shared and that the vacuum source is directly from the inlet manifold  
Check the seal between the adapter and the Race Port ensure that there is no gap between the Race Port base and the weld  
flange  
Check the join between the adapter and the cross over pipe for leaking  
Ensure that the right spring is installed in the Race Port for your engine’s vacuum level
