different ways to turn up the boost

Turbo Transformer

Recommended Posts

The very first modification to any turbo car should be turning up the boost - period.

Ideally, tuning your ECU is the most seamless way to do this. However, when a direct download to the ECU is not possible, there are other ways to turn up boost.

I want to share with this forum, a modification to that effect - Turbo Transformer. Currently, there are several Fiesta ST/SFE, Focus ST and several Hyundai Genesis turbo Coupes with this add-on power chip with good results and testimonials.

Here are a few videos that summarize what it is and how it works -







Powerchips have a bad reputation and in many cases for good reason (because they don't do anything).


But turbo cars are different - in this case, such a chip is a perfectly legitimate option. And when a tune is not available for your vehicle, such as a Cobb or SCT, this may be your only option if you want a few extra psi from your ecoboost.


Furthermore, a direct download to your engine controller will leave a trail (for lack of a technical description) and your warranty may come into question if the dealer sees multiple downloads or a non-Ford file flashed.


I have been working on my design for a year now and I finally went for sale in July 2014 and have mainly focused on the Focus (no pun intended) and the Fiesta ST/ SFE platforms since these were the earliest ecoboosts for which I could find a fitting connector. Even the most skeptical people are taking a second look - here is an example of one such hard critic's VERY THOROUGH REVIEW after he got a chance to evaluate the product.


Here is a list of compatible vehicles that this will fit (V6 eecoboost engines are not compatible since they have a different connector plug) and I have only 2 pcs as of today.
