Our location in Vancouver, Canada (along with our combined 20 years experience in turbocharger design and manufacturing) puts us at an advantage when it comes to developing a turbocharger for Toyota's VVT-I 1JZ engine found in JZX100 and JZX110 sedans. As these cars have been legal in Canada for some time, we have ample hands-on experience with these unique motors. With legal importation of these vehicles to the USA about to open up, all of North America will soon be able to enjoy these torquey and responsive straight 6's.
If you've been able to drive or even be a passenger in a VVT-i 1jz vehicle, you will understand how well the low and midrange power has been improved over the previous 1st generation 1jz. With the stock engine package however, this has come with a comparative reduction in top end power output.
Our aim at the beginning of the development of these turbochargers is simple: Develop upgrade turbocharger options that are well matched to these Toyota's optimized low and mid-range Volumetric efficiency, while simultaneously offering solutions to suit examples with supporting modifications to increase flow rates and power outputs beyond what the OEM camshafts and fuelling can support. As with all our products, we aim to maximize value, while also allowing for full customization of your turbochager system for motorsports usage.
Please note: OEM turbocharger core charge is applicable for SM/R400 turbochargers.
SM400/R- torque and response
utilizing a turbocharger built off our SR/5 ball-bearing turbocharger CHRA, however utilizing a billet compressor wheel optimized for the application, this kit is designed to be a full bolt-on solution for your stock or lighty modified JZX100. Installation with your OEM exhaust manifold and compressor interface points is possible, and at boost levels below 12PSI it can be run on a stock ECU and fueling. Optimized for response and low-mid range torque, this is a perfect option for a reliable street car, or perfect for drift usage. with the proper supporting mods however, this responsive option will still allow for 400BHP. This option requires an OEM CT-15B turbocharger core, as the existing compressor and turbine housing castings are CNC machined to suite the new ball bearing CHRA.
SM/R500- wider power band, reduced back pressure, more power.
taking the entry level kit a step further, the SM/R500 kit utilizes a slightly larger turbine profile and mixed flow turbine technology to increase turbine flow characteristics. an upgraded internal wastegate actuator can be calibrated for boost pressures between 12 and 18PSI. Usage with or without upgraded camshafts can still provide impressive results. Output up to 500BHP can be expected with supporting modifications.
SM600/R- Ultimate power delivery and horsepower output for motorsports usage.
beyond the capabilities of the SM/R500 turbocharger, the OEM ehxausts manifold and turbine housings become too restrictive to make efficient power, and the jump to a tubular manifold is made. This opens up many new options, and the power output of the turbocharger system can match the capabilities of almost any 2.5L 1JZ. Utilizing our in-house built 304 stainless manifold, featuring a merge collector, external wastegate, and T3 or V-band flange, your turbochager of choice can be selected, however we suggest the 550bhp capable SR/51 and .82 A/R turbine for a very usable and broad mid-high RPM powerband. Downpipe, Intercooler/intake piping, as well as plumbing kits are available to make this a bolt-on affair as with all our SM/R kits.
