What's Surbo?

The Surbo (air suction-turbo) is an air intake charger. It is a stationary, curved air guide that creates pressurizing jets and a suction vortex. Some customers likened it to a pressure check valve, because it holds the air pressure on the output end. It helps the engine induce more air during acceleration, to match the increased fuel input then (due to greater accelerator pressure). More complete combustion is achieved. The result is quicker revving (RPM limit achievable with just 1/2 throttle), and as you get to speed sooner, you will save around 10% fuel, sometimes more.

What Surbo is NOT

The Surbo is not a rotating device. Due to someone misusing the Surbo name in a Youtube video for such a product, there has been some confusion. When unsure, please ask us.

What's the difference between the Surbo, the Twin Surbo, and the Surbo5?

The Surbo is the original and fits around 90 percent of cars in Singapore, those with air pipes with an internal diameter of around 2.5 inches. If the pipe size goes up to 3 inches or slightly more, typically for cars 2.5 litres or above, the Surbo5 will be applied. The Surbo5 was based on the Surbo, and so called because it has 5 fins. Where there is space, the Twin Surbo, which is 2 Surbos in a straight line may be applied, as it gives slightly more torque and an extra 5% of fuel saving.
