This past year has brought about many changes in the racing world, with OE auto makers as well as the high performance aftermarket. At Turbonetics it has been no different as we are constantly striving to be flexible with our product lines and maintain focus on our core competencies. Our engineering staff is continuing to develop new and innovative turbochargers and valves.
The latest TNX-122, the “X” means billet parts, is a testament to creative thinking and ingenuitive ways to deliver more power and increased reliability. Featuring two billet pieces on one turbocharger, this massive unit has a forged billet compressor wheel that can deliver 3500 HP and 140+ psi of boost pressure. The second piece is the brilliant machined stainless steel bearing housing needed to house the incredible Turbonetics patented Ceramic Ball Bearing design, capable of withstanding an incredible 2600+ lbs. of thrust.With the rise in fuel prices and fuel economy the latest top priority, the diesel performance market is poised to continue growing.
With more and more offerings headed to the States, we are ready to be able to provide bolt-on light and heavy duty applications, as well as diesel passenger vehicle upgrades. Turbonetics is also doing its part to be green in 2009 and will now only offer turbo systems that are CARB exempt and street legal in all 50 states. Look for our 550HP Ford Mustang GT kit to be our first California CARB legal system this year. It seems that the same results that we saw from the 70’s fuel crunch are once again affecting product offerings from Detroit, Japan, and Germany. Small displacement turbocharged powerplants are on the rise much like the diesel offerings in Europe and Turbonetics is excited to be in development of an advanced family of small frame turbochargers perfect for these offerings. And don’t forget about the 30 years of heat exchanger experience we have with Spearco.
Don’t just think about the power capabilities of keeping those intake charges cool, the fuel savings is dramatic as well. As much as the high performance automotive aftermarket has been in flux, to no-one’s surprise the gas, oil and mining markets continues to boom. Turbonetics delivers OE equipment to many different clients including CAT, Waukesha, and a variety of other clients with our Industrial Regulator line of valves and Ceramic Ball Bearing turbochargers. If you have a heavy duty forced induction need make sure and contact us. No matter what the type of fuel or if it operates in the air, sea or land, Turbonetics continues to be “The source for all of your forced induction needs”.
