Since 1978, Turbonetics in Moorpark, CA has been manufacturing forced induction systems for both OEM and aftermarket applications. All Turbonetics products are in fact designed and manufactured in house. Once again this year, Turbonetics opened its doors for a rare glimpse of turbo heaven. Inside the Turbonetics headquarters various components from a turbo were exhibited. Spectators were able to see the turbo machinery that only people with turbo fetishes would understand.
If the inner workings of a turbo didn't catch your attention, the red Ferrari F40 parked inside was sure to stop you in your tracks. Outside of the building, a large group of enthusiasts were scattered checking out the different cars on display. Only until it was announced that the food was ready did spectators proceed to form a single line. Famous tuner Bisi Ezerioha of Bisimoto brought out some his best hits such as a twin turbo 1976 Porsche 911 Coupe and his 708 hp 1988 Civic Wagon.
The Porsche was featured in this year's February issue here. If you read the article you would know that this bad boy is pumping out 771 horsepower and using a 996 power plant. His Civic Wagon is just as amazing using a D16Z6 and a Turbonetics BTX6565 water-cooled turbo.
Parked next to the M7 booth was a cream-color wrapped Rocket Bunny FR-S. You might not recognize it, but it was one of the original FR-Ss to receive the Rocket Bunny kit here in the states. Owner Robert Kochis had this to say about the FR-S, "I really like the color change, it brings out the lines of the car,"
Even with California valley heat it was a good turnout. TFTI Turbonetics! Really thank you!
