VGT (variable geometry turbine) turbo technology has greatly improved diesel efficiency over the years.
However, it can and should still be improving without sacrificing performance and the joy of driving. Introducing a patented project by development company TurboCentriX in conjunction with TTP Performance.
With efficiency and performance at the forefront, research and development set out to re-design and re-engineer the basic VGT solenoid found in the Garrett/Fomoco turbochargers commonly used in Ford Powerstroke and GM Duramax trucks.
Welcome the Lightning Bolt VGT Solenoid. This new and innovative design installs as simply as the OEM solenoid, yet looks and performs dramatically different. Newly designed and machined components make up the internal structure along with a finned outer casing with a cooling benefit. The completely new structure and design enhances the solenoid function to dramatically increase VGT response and strength. This results in quicker spool, boost increases of 5-12%, retains longer boost range, faster exhaust brake reaction, improved MPG, and cleaner exhaust. No other parts or modifications required.
The Lightning Bolt Solenoid has been in testing for two years on multiple platforms and is now finally ready to make its debut on the diesel market.
It can be utilized in both stock OEM or performance upgraded VGT turbochargers. Trusted select diesel performance shops are already using them in their everyday trucks and will soon be ready to install them for their customers as well.
