    • BoostAddict welcomes Europe's number 1 hybrid turbo experts The Turbo Engineers (TTE Global)

      You likely have noticed many articles about TTE (The Turbo Engineers) lately as they seem to have a hybrid turbocharger upgrade for basically any platform. They are usually the first to market as well as evidenced by their recent Lamborghini Urus upgrade.


      You name it, they have a turbo upgrade. BoostAddict did not know how large their reach was until speaking with Simon Sharp of Sharp Motorsport Ltd.

      This network of sites can often be quite critical as we question pricing trying to keep vendors honest and being located in the USA we use dollar priced products as the barometer. Now is a good time to mention we were very wrong in our criticism of TTE's Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS TTE1200 VTG turbo upgrade.

      Why? Because much like the X51 package for the Porsche 991.2 3.0 Carrera models a VIN must be provided to Porsche to get the turbochargers which are then modified. Buying Porsche factory parts directly is not cheap. There are few VINS to go around and few GT2 RS owners that modify their cars.

      It is not the same as machining some housings off a volume model and the price reflects the cost of the VTG's to begin with from Porsche then the work TTE has to do in order to get them to support a 1200+ horsepower level of output. PorscheBoost got it wrong saying the price was absurd.

      On the bright side, TTE Global is aboard the network as a premium vendor and they are expanding their reach worldwide. APR recently tuned some 2.5 TFSI models equipped with TTE hybrids for example.

      Additionally, TTE offers the largest volume of hybrid turbocharger upgrades in Europe. Many of those big Euro tuning houses you hear of go to TTE and private label. We will not name names but you have likely heard of a certain very big Porsche tuner with a single syllable name. Yep, they go to TTE. As do some AMG tuning houses by the way.

      They are number one for a reason and it is because their products work. Yes, on a direct dollar conversion some of their turbos are more expensive than US competition but you know what you get for that money? A quality product that works and lasts. They are not sourcing cheap Chinese garbage. People will pay for quality.

      BoostAddict will cover the TTE Global product line: https://tteglobal.com/

      You can expect to see more of their turbo upgrades in the USA.

      Welcome aboard TTE Global!

      Small series is important to us, as is the conversion of existing OE turbochargers to new upgrade specifications, be it new or from a supplied used turbocharger.

      TheTurboEngineers GmbH consults and provides to race teams and many well known tuning houses, looking for the best-engineered performance turbochargers available.

      TheTurboEngineers headquarters are based in Dachau just on the outskirts of Munich in Germany.

        I know them for a while and think they have great quality products from what I've read online, but the pricing seems to be a bit high to match the US and other "new market" turbo manufacturers...

        Working for a large German technology company who designs and manufactures their products in Germany, I can tell you the typical R&D engineer is unbelievably focused on making the highest quality products with cost being a secondary concern. That makes it tough when competing with Chinese products where the lowest price is the primary focus, but for those people who value the best of the best, they’ll certainly be happy. It’s sort of refreshing to have a engineering first attitude vs a bean counter first attitude.

        Absolutely.

        Plus let's not forget their taxes. VAT inflates some of the pricing as does currency conversion.

        The thing is they do it all in house. Also, like in the Urus example, they have the resources to deliver upgraded turbos first.

        For a high end car like that I'd definitely consider TTE over other options and as of right now there are no other options.
