Why choose HP Performance for your turbo system?
A professionally built turbo system is a big investment, and getting factual information about them can be difficult. Every turbo kit company claims that their kits fit better, look better, perform better and are less expensive than any other kit. This can leave the customer in a difficult position when making a decision about which system to purchase. However, HP Performance doesn't just make these claims, they back them up with hard proof. They think you deserve straight answers and are not bashful about providing them.
Who is HP Performance?
HP Performance has specialized exclusively in developing, building, testing and marketing turbo systems and other performance upgrades since 1999. HP Performance has grown into facilities in excess of 12,000 sq.ft., providing space for activities including installations, system development, fabrication, manufacturing, storage, inventory, shipping and offices. Instead of just buying components from other vendors and "packaging" kits, HP does many of the steps in building a quality turbo system in-house, such as fabrication, building headers, tubing kits, intercoolers and turbochargers. HP bases their turbo systems and has built their excellent reputation on these basic principles:
Performance is HP's business
HP's business was founded on the concept of cutting edge design, uncompromising quality and superior performance, all at reasonable prices. After over seven years of building turbo systems, those founding principles still guide HP. Their systems are found on everything from road cars to street racers to full-on race cars, and the results of following these principles is the common link.
High performance is not achieved by just bolting on a turbocharger or any other "power adder" and hitting the accelerator pedal. High performance is a goal best met by utilizing a system; a careful blending of quality engine components, drive train and suspension modifications, and expert tuning. HP's specialists are experienced and are trained to advise you about the correct system for your car and your driving goals.
HP has a state-of-the-art Mustang 1750 SE chassis dyno. They dyno-tune every car they do an installation on, and insist that customers who install their own systems do so as well. This step is critical to performance, longevity and reliability. HP has used several systems for tuning such as FAST, Big Stuff, LT1 Edit, LS1 Edit, AEM, DiabloSport and many others. HP's technicians have extensive experience in the use of these systems and can help you tune your car to perfection for all driving styles.
The results of a "system" approach is easily demonstrated. For example, the HP Streeturbo Stage I 60mm turbo system for the 79-95 Mustang with an unboosted baseline of 204 rwhp produced 570 rwph and 707 rwtq @ 13 psi boost. Similar increases have been achieved with many other customers' cars.
Ease of installation
As an aftermarket turbocharger system takes up more room in the engine compartment than stock engines do, just how much more room becomes important when clearances are tight. Today's cars are crammed with every imaginable option, and all those options take up room. The "old days" of being able to see the ground when you open your hood is gone; likewise, being able to do many common procedures on your modern engine is beyond the capability of most people. HP does their best not to make these things harder. Sometimes even 1/4" makes the difference between a bolt-on installation or a frustrating bash-and-thrash experience. HP turbocharger systems not only fit your engine, but they're built to allow the maximum room possible to clear spark plugs, starters, air conditioning compressors, power steering pumps and other components that you would rather not live without. HP designs and builds turbocharger systems for specific engines in specific cars. They know they fit because they install them, not just once in a while, but every day.
Prototyping and Installation
HP turbo systems can be installed by anyone with average mechanical skills using ordinary hand tools. HP provides complete, illustrated instructions and include a list of all the components shipped with the system, along with a list of the tools required and an estimated time to complete the installation. HP has a technical hotline available at no cost to you to answer any questions that may arise.
No substitute for highest quality
Your car is a major investment. No one wants to compromise the value of their car with sub-standard modifications. HP agrees completely. HP turbo systems are comprised of only the highest quality components. Many of the components are proprietary; HP custom builds them at their facility to insure their high quality. All HP header sets and tubing components are custom-built from CNC mandrel bent 14 ga. tubing and TIG-welded and carry a lifetime warranty. All HP headers and tubing are ceramic coated inside and out by JetHot, the leading performance exhaust ceramic coating company in the United States and are unconditionally warranted for 3 years and carry a lifetime warranty against rust-through.
All components in HP systems such as turbos, wastegates, BOV's, fuel systems, silicone couplings, etc., are all the highest quality from the most respected manufacturers in the industry, such as Garrett, Tial, Bosch, etc.,etc. HP offers a full one-year warranty on everything, even if the original manufacturer (such as the wastegate, BOV, etc.) offers less. Every system shipped is quality checked several times before leaving our facility. HP' commitment to you, the customer, is "No Compromises", and HP sticks to that commitment with every system sold.
HP systems provide superior performance value
HP turbo systems are complete and, while various upgrade options are offered, everything you need is included in the base system. There is nothing else to buy in order to install the system and drive your car. No more discovering that you need another component that will cost you more money. No more chasing around, wasting time and money trying to find the "little" parts that other companies don't include. No more nonsense. HP doesn't try to fool people with low-priced "specials" that often don't include many of the major components required to successfully install a system, like mass air meters, fuel injectors, fuel pumps and even the turbo! By the time you buy all these "options", those "specials" are no bargain and their total price will be much more than our complete system. HP even includes things that other companies don't even offer, like proprietary turbos and JetHot "Sterling" ceramic coating on all tubing parts and headers.
HP Systems are upgradeable.
For most applications, HP offers Stage I, Stage II, Stage III and Race Systems. With each successively more powerful system, you can discuss the system with HP's tech department and specify the components and upgrades you want in order to achieve the goals you have for your vehicle. HP's base Stage I system requires no changes to the vehicle or engine. Stage II and up may require strengthening the engine components (forged internals, etc.), drive train, etc., but this is up to you.....HP will provide whatever you need to accomplish your goals. The Stage I, II and III systems are designed to allow you to retain all of the vehicle accessories such as power steering, a/c, etc. Moving up from Stage I to Stage II is as simple as sending the turbocharger to HP to be upgraded to the next size and allows you to retain all the same piping and headers. Everything bolts right back in the same location! Of course, fuel upgrades or other changes may also be required depending on the power level you want to achieve, but we can provide everything needed.
Appearance is a priority
Every component included in HP systems are chosen not only for their high standard of performance, but for their esthetic beauty. All tubing components and headers are TIG welded and are Jet-Hot "Sterling" ceramic coated. HP systems are designed to enhance the appearance of the factory engine compartment and not look like they were just added on without any consideration of giving a professional, high-performance look.

Ask our customers
Customers are HP's best reference. Read what some of them say about HP systems:
".....I just went for the first ride with my HP kit. All I can say is Holy God, it is fast. I thought my Vortech setup was fast. This thing would run from my old setup. Driveability is better with the turbo too, other than the fact that third is now as useless as 2nd and 1st were (no traction.) I love the sound, too."
"Well I received the rest of the kit yesterday and I must say that I have no questions now about the quality of HP Performance Turbo Kits! The quality is outstanding, all pieces to be machined with the utmost attention to detail."
"The quality of the kit seems to be top notch.....the installation seems to be going pretty smooth. One thing I will say is how impressed I am with the help that the guys at HP have offered me. Between the 3-way conversations walking me through things, to the occasional calls I get at random just to check up on me to see how things are going for me. Two big thumbs up to you guys at HP, great product with even greater support.... can't wait to finish the installation and take my dads modified 03 Cobra for the spanking of its lifetime!"
"It's making so much power right now the stock clutch is slipping. Before the clutch started slipping, when it was cold out, it would blow the tires off in 4th gear at 100 mph. The power is unbelievable even at 10 psi.....Can you say sleeper?"
"Drove it around town today and it feels real strong...Every time I get into boost it breaks loose.....3.55's and dyno tune on the way. It runs good and I am seeing 7lbs of boost. It seems to be fully spooled by 3000 RPM. I have 4.10 gears in it right now and it revs up so fast it seems like I hit 6000 RPM before i can blink. I am getting the 3.55's put in soon. It makes more power at 7lbs of boost than my Vortech did at 12lbs."
"I recently purchased your kit and I really like it. I've had the following on my car: a ported GT-40 intake, 70mm BBK TB, E303 Cam, 1 3/4 BBK Ceramic Coat Long tube headers, BBK Off road H-Pipe and a 3:55 Gear, 9psi Powerdyne, 10psi Novi 2000, 150hp NOS Kit, 10 psi ProCharger P600B with a 3 core front mount intercooler. Since then my car has been put back to stock with the exception of the E303 cam (and your HP turbo kit). I think by far it's the best thing I've had on my car."
