16 n Performance & Hotrod Business n May 2014 Diesel Turbo Sinister Diesel, Roseville, Calif., offers the Stage Two Powermax Turbo with BatMoWheel that maximizes mid- and high-end horsepower and turbo spool. The turbo features the Garrett patented Advanced Variable Nozzle Turbine (AVNT) design for increased compressor flow and boost response. It utilizes nine movable vanes that significantly increase turbine efficiency and improve engine performance from idle through peak rpm. The larger compressor billet wheel supports more than 175 hp and increases maximum power range with no sacrifice in drivability. Crisscross Nitrous Plate Nitrous Supply, Huntington Beach, Calif., introduces its all-new 500-hp NS Criss-Cross Plate offering the latest in nitrous technology. With substantial improvements in engine development over the last decade, nitrous flow rates have seen a considerable increase in demand. The NS Criss-Cross Plate features a spray-bar design intersecting at 90 degrees with larger 3/16-inch OD nitrous spray bars, allowing for a substantial increase in distribution qualities for nitrous and fuel. Turbochargers Precision Turbo & Engine, Hebron, Ind., presents a new version of its popular PT6266 turbocharger featuring GEN2 Competition Engineered Aerodynamics (CEA) technology. In testing, the GEN2 CEA wheels offer substantially more horsepower when compared to similarly sized wheels of older designs. The turbo is rated to support 800 hp and includes an air-cooled, dual ceramic ball bearing Center Housing Rotating Assembly (CHRA) for faster transient response and added thrust capacity. Turbo Shields Heatshield Products Inc., Valley Center, Calif., presents its Lava and Stealth lines of Turbo Shields, both good to 1,800 degrees. The shields can reduce under-hood temperatures by as much as 40 percent on their own, and by up to 70 percent by adding other wraps/shields. They are designed to reduce turbo lag and chatter, and in some cases increase boost. The company also offers wraps and sleeves for turbo manifolds and intercooler pipes. Drag Race Turbos Garrett By Honeywell, Torrance, Calif., introduces a range of new SFI 61.1-Spec Turbochargers for use in accordance with new rules governing many of the North American drag race sanctioning bodies. Based on the Garrett GT55R and GTX55R turbochargers, the new SFI 61.1-spec turbos meet all requirements for the NHRA Pro Modified Class as well as those for the ADRL, NMCA/ NMRA, and all others that require the SFI 61.1 spec. A lightweight stainless turbine housing is also available. Camaro/Corvette Supercharger Magnuson Products, Ventura, Calif., presents the new Heartbeat Supercharger for LS3 Camaro and Corvette, and LSA Camaro ZL1 and Cadillac CTS-V applications. Featuring new intercoolers derived from Formula 1 and NASCAR heat exchangers, the Heartbeat virtually eliminates heat soak for added performance. The supercharger kit features the Eaton TVS rotor-pack—the same rotors used in GM, Audi, Jaguar, and Ford in their factory supercharged cars. PHBMAY.indd 16 4/2/14 11:09 AM
