  1. Turbo
    Hello, I’ve looked all around for information on if this setup would work for my 2009 Smart...I’ve done all the bolt ons possible and want to turbo it. Is it worth spending the money to go this route, or the 4K for the turbo setup from @SmartMadness ? TIA

    I purchased a 2016 smart fortwo passion with the 900cc turbo engine; along with an extended warranty. It is now Jan 2020 and i purchased the car in Jan 2017 as a demo... The extended warranty covers up to 120,000km not in addition to the base 80,000km warranty, which I asked to confirm to make...

    I came up on a free 2005 smart fortwo. One of the ones imported from europe. Its the 457th one made. So this would be a first generation 450 model correct? This thing is so fun to drive and shift. Anybody ever put a blowoff valve on it? I'm wondering what that would entail. Also what is...

    Sorry for such a noob question but I can't seem to find an answer.. Can you install a turbo and still use the stock drive train??

    Hi, Ever since I bought my smart secondhand I have always heard the sound of escaping air when I back off on the throttle. Recently I now get this sound on full throttle and the power drops off at the same time. Despite this I can find no evidence of a blow off valve. All the air hoses are...

    Well, I don't have a smart anymore so I don't need this turbo kit. It's a Garrett GT20 turbo kit, runs at about 5PSI, and is in great working condition. The car it was pulled off of had a little over 10k miles. Comes with the turbo, intercooler, waste gate, mounting brackets/screws, and a...

    When I was in for 10k mile service today in Santa Clara I noticed something interesting on my receipt. Under the specifications for my car there was a "Turbo" box where they put a "N." I wonder if this was because the forms are the same in Europe or if maybe we're getting a turbo option in the...
  15. Turbo
    Hey everybody. I got my awesome turbo today. I finally found the right size turbo for this Smart car and it spins nicely. Great price and am probably expecting about 8lbs boost with 120whp. Hopefully, the install won't take too long. P.S.- this is the same size turbo they use on the ricer...

    It's great to finally see some competition in the turbo scene (and the lower prices). Is anyone else curious as to what happened with one of the original smart turbo kits - breathless performance? Was there just a lost of interest in their product? No longer being sold? etc?
