FITTING YOUR GEN V RACEPORT  
Mounting your New Turbosmart Gen V  
Raceport  
1
The Gen V series of Raceport is a direct fit replacement for the  
Raceport and no modification is necessary provided packaging  
space is sufficient.  
The weld flanges should be welded to your charge pipe in a  
suitable location. The weld flanges are compatible with  
aluminium welding rod material. Purge bungs should be used to  
maintain the straightness of the flange during the welding  
process. TS-0204-3003  
For best results, an attempt should be made, if space allows, to  
mount the Gen V Raceport as close to the throttle as possible.  
The Raceport should be mounted such that it is not on the inside  
radius of any bend.  
CAUTION!  
Do not place the actuator cap near a significant heat source  
as this could shorten the life of the diaphragm.  
Fitting the Gen V Raceport  
2
Prior to mounting the Gen V Raceport, place v-band over weld  
on flange by unscrewing the bolt on the v-band as far out as  
possible and then squeezing the bolt in a syringe motion to  
expand the v-band (squeeze the dots together below). Once the  
v-band is in its fully expanded position, slide the v-band over the  
flange to allow for the Raceport to be installed.  
Fit Actuator Port Fittings  
3
Fit top chamber port fittings prior to mounting the Raceport, install  
/8” NPT blank with 3/16” hex key and signal nipple into ports in  
the cap. Port order or orientation is not important, select which  
suits your packaging requirements. Apply thread lubricant and  
screw in clockwise until finger tight, then tighten further 1-2 turns  
for seal.  
1
Do not forget to put the O-Ring seal into the flange before  
mounting the unit on the charge pipe. Using the 4mm hex bit  
socket and a torque wrench, Tighten the V-Band to 4N.m (3  
ft/lbs). Ensure the Raceport is home correctly while torquing the  
Select a suitable manifold pressure source, use the shortest  
possible hose length to the Raceport.  
CAUTION!  
Do not share manifold pressure source with fuel pressure  
regulator or any other critical instrument.  
Start Engine and Check for Leaks

TUNING YOUR VACUUM LEVEL  
The Race Port has a variety of springs to suit different vacuum levels. Different tuning levels and engine configurations 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 18 in/Hg. Turbosmart has a range of springs to suit different vacuum levels to ensure high levels of response from the  
Race Port.  
IMPORTANT NOTES ON SETTING THE RACEPORT SPRING  
PRESSURE  
See over for Spring Chart.  
A stiffer spring should only be used when necessary. The Gen V  
Raceport allows for different combinations of spring pressures.  
All springs that are adaptable with the Gen V Raceport are shown  
in the table below. The tuner can use combinations of up to 3  
springs to achieve the following Manifold vacuum pressures. To  
aid in the identification of these springs they are supplied colour  
coded. Please see the following detailed instructions on setting  
your Gen V Raceport’s spring pressure. The springs chosen  
should be rated to the lowest boost level desired.

TROUBLESHOOTING  
-
-
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. If this does not  
occur, the hose could be blocked or crimped. Check the hose and replace if necessary.  
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 intercooler pipe for leaking.  
Ensure that the right spring is installed in the Race Port for your engine’s vacuum level.  
Failing the above, submit a technical request to [email protected] with information of your engine configuration and  
photos of installation.
