PRODUCT FOCUS Corvette Supercharger Large-Frame Turbos Precision Turbo & Engine, Hebron, Ind., offers its dual ceramic ball-bearing largeframe Competition Engineered Aerodynamics (CEA) turbochargers. All of Precision's large-frame CEA-equipped turbos will now come standard as ball-bearing units. In addition to reduced turbo lag and faster transient response, durability and longevity are also improved with the ball bearing CHRA, thanks in part to stronger and more robust materials. Cummins Upgraded Turbo High Tech Turbo, Salt Lake City, presents its 2003-'12 Cummins Upgraded Turbo, a complete drop-in replacement turbocharger that offers improved fuel mileage, better power and cooler temperatures while maintaining all OEM emissions equipment. The 2003-'07 5.9-liter and 2007.5-'12 6.7-liter turbochargers are offered in two stages and use genuine Holset parts. Designed for stock and mildly tuned applications, they increase power and lower exhaust gas temperatures without sacrificing spool-up time, Turbo Insulating Cover & Kit Thermo-Tec Automotive Products, Greenwich, Ohio, presents its Universal Turbo Insulating Cover, designed to protect and improve performance of the turbo by keeping it spooled up, thereby virtually eliminating turbo lag. The Turbo Insulator comes in one size and will fit any turbine for any vehicle including trucks and SUVs. The complete turbo insulating kit includes the insulating cover plus a roll of exhaust insulating wrap for the down-pipe. The kits have been shown to increase torque, horsepower, eliminate turbo lag and reduce radiant heat.
