Turbsomart is excited to announce the all-new Turbsomart Performance range of turbochargers!

Available in Air Cooled and Water Cooled, the Turbosmart lineup is based around V-Band fitment and includes various T3 and T4 solutions. There are reverse rotation units for those after that mirror image look for your twin turbo setup, or if you need to take advantage of a unique single install. The Turbosmart turbocharger range is smaller, lighter and faster. We’ve been watching. We’ve been listening. Turbosmart, Building Boost since 1997!



Turbosmart turbochargers have been intentionally designed to be as tightly packaged as possible while not impacting or compromising performance.



Advanced and modernized materials and the bearing system contribute to a performance turbocharger significantly lighter than the competition.



The focus and aerodynamic balance of the Turbosmart Range of turbochargers is faster acceleration, which is achieved through maximum flow at low shaft speeds while optimising other areas of the turbocharger to ensure outright mass flow is maintained at high speeds and flow.

Lightweight 310s Stainless Steel Investment Cast Turbine Housings. These housings have been CFD designed to optimize aerodynamics and performance, but also weight. The design of Turbocharger turbine housings is such that we’ve taken advantage of a more advanced manufacturing process to create the most lightweight housings possible while ensuring thermal stability and impact strength for the installation’s life. Each housing is optimised for AR specification at the tongue and across the housing.

Lightweight, Aluminium compressor covers feature CFD-driven and optimised AR design with an anti-surge inlet, built-in speed sensor and boosts reference ports. The covers have been designed for the lowest possible weight while providing optimal aerodynamics and respect to the required ARs.

T14 Inconel Turbine wheel for Extreme EGTs and unique aerodynamics and profile for high mass air flow potential with a focus on overall engine pressure differential. Trim combinations have been developed to optimise end-to-end engine pressure differential through expansion ratios and reduced back pressure. The low profile hub of the shaft contributes to mass flow, complementing the aerodynamic balance further.

Proprietary Dual Ceramic Bearing System with optimised efficiency and reduced friction losses, contributing to increases in transient response. The bearing system is designed and validated for the lowest rotating mass and friction for industry-leading shaft inertia and maximized transient response. The bearing system accommodates aggressive aero at low shaft speeds while maintaining stability at high shaft speeds where the high-end flow capabilities can shine.

Oil Management and Centre Housing has been designed to offer market-leading oil sling at low shaft speeds via an oversized shaft hub with improved oil sling at the compressor side. At the same time, double gas rings exist on the turbine side, combining to achieve exceptional oil management. Optimised Oil management ensures oil containment within the turbocharger assembly and eliminates the concern of oil passing into the compressor, or exhaust and contributes to optimal emissions. The Housing is specifically designed to aid oil flow and is manufactured from modernized cast iron, including an integrated backing plate for the compressor cover. This additional rigidity in the chassis allows better alignment and concentricity of the compressor cover while offering improved overall strength and impact resistance.

Aerodynamics of the Compressor Wheels has been created with aggressive low-speed movement in mind to aid in higher power levels at lower shaft speeds. The 7+7 Splitter Blade design uses a tapered back-cut wheel recessed into the centre housing for optimal airflow management. The compressor wheels are 2618-T6 Forged CNC Billet Aluminum, which is CNC Milled, including an integrated nut, further reducing rotating mass.

Transient Response is the name of the game. The Turbosmart range of Turbochargers was designed around an ultra-responsive bearing system and main shaft assembly through innovative and careful use and balance of technology and materials. This responsiveness can then be balanced with aggressive aero for improved performance at lower shaft speeds, reaching target boost and power levels earlier while also aiming for exceptional overall end-to-end engine pressure differential through the rear wheel and housing design and specification. The balance of attributes for these units has been aimed at acceleration via mass air flow optimization at all shaft speeds.

Develop. Test. Validate. The Turbosmart turbocharger range was designed to focus on the overall engine pressure differential, targeting lower pressure differentials across your engine through careful wheel design, trim and aerodynamic selection while maintaining the smallest, lightest and most responsive unit possible. The Turbosmart turbocharger range has been validated and tested to strict and demanding conditions, ensuring this optimum balance has been achieved and delivered, including all test data, including compressor maps.
