Every year, for the past 15 years, Waterfest has been the place where the country's top-tuners have unveiled their latest developments. Each year, we attempt to track down the most significant parts and bring them to you.

The NA Motorsports booth debuted the new BSH turbo kit. It's a turn-key solution for the Mk5 2.0T and includes a tubular manifold, 3" downpipe, dump tube and inlet. Both Revo and Unitronic will have software for the kit. A multitude of turbos have been tested for compatibility, including Garrett GT2860RS, 2871R, 3071R, 3076R and 35R. Expect power to range from 350-700whp, depending on the turbo chosen (www.bshspeedshop.com)

Built to withstand 600-1200hp, the new oversize disc from Clutchmasters caught the eye of big-turbo Dubbers. Named 850-Series because it uses a 8.5" twin-disc, the clutch allows smoother engagement and holds more power with its larger size. There are also different friction disc combinations. Applications include VW/Audi 1.8T, 3.2 VR6 and S4 2.7T. Prices start at $1950 (www.clutchmasters.com)
