Neohydro Technologies has perfected its twin turbo system for the C6 Corvette. While the usual performance benefits of a turbo system are present: 775 horsepower and 691 Ft-lb of torque, the real trick on this install is better fuel economy which raises the mileage standard to 40 mpg around town and 32 mpg on the highway.
Neohydro calls their revolutionary twin turbo system the “Green Interactive Hybrid System”. The company installs a patented rear-mounted turbo system and then gives it an advanced custom tune that increases the efficiency of the car. Neohydro claims their GIHS system will not only boost horsepower and fuel efficiency, but when purchased with a new GM vehicle, the GIHS system is covered under the full factory warranty.
While turbo charging is typically used to create more power, one of the benefits is that it also helps create more power with less effort. On the rear-mounted turbo install, the compressed air runs back to the intercooler and then into the engine. Neohydro claims rear-mounted turbo systems are superior to traditional engine-mounted systems because they are efficient, less intrusive, easier to install and are very reliable. The GIHS turbo systems are legal in all 50 states.
Corvette Magazine heard about the GIHS turbo Corvette and recently put the car through its paces. Corvette Magazine’s Editor Eric Gustafson said the Corvette is “very fast” and “its a very neat installation. It’s nice to get into an aftermarket modified car without the check engine light on.” Look for the full review to run in March 2010 issue which hits newsstands in January.
