Max power now possible with just 1/2 throttle!
Increasing air flow with jets and a vortex to match increased fuel flow during acceleration, the Surbo (air suction-turbo) enables the engine to pull air through easily and reach its rpm limit with just 1/2 accelerator pressure! You'll never have to floor the accelerator again, thus avoiding wasted fuel (as emissions and carbon deposits), excessive cylinder pressures and heat, and fatigue.
Surbo installed on Subaru Impreza 2008/ Legacy/ Forester/ Outback, and Twin Surbo on Kia Forte/ Koup/ Hyundai Elantra/ i30. No cutting and reversible
ADVANTAGES FOR ALL VEHICLES:
More driving fun, with 0-100 kph acceleration time cut by up to 1 second for faster cars and up to 3 seconds for automatic cars (see Nissan Sunny testimonial).
10% fuel saving in mixed driving and more on highways, due to less accelerator pressure for the same speed. The Surbo pays for itself in many other ways, and can be used for a lifetime!
More torque and horsepower (shown by Dyno tests). These mean more engine flexibility and easier overtaking.
Higher top speed by up to 30 kph for the average 1.6 sedan (as reported by customers). This means easy cruising.
10% less CO2 emitted per km (based on 10% more distance travelled per tank).
For automatic vehicles while in D mode: no-slip instant acceleration from rest due to increased torque, better low rpm power, hill assistance on slopes, higher rpm capability with 1/2 throttle, and hence easier changes to lower gears. More info and auto car list..
For manual vehicles (or automatic gearboxes in manual mode): rpm limit with just 1/2 throttle, and wider rpm range if the rpm limit is removed. More info and manual car list..
For diesel vehicles: increased revving capability makes the short 1st gear gather more speed and subsequent gears faster, less diesel smoke because the rpm limit can be reached with 1/2 accelerator pressure (=1/2 fuel pressure=less heat=less NOx). Helps prevent clogging of modern particulate filters.

For turbocharged vehicles: reduced turbo lag, having the turbo on from a lower rpm, and more linear power. More info and turbo car list..
