The Desert Storm Turbo Upgrade System is the WINNINGEST Turbo System in both sanctioned and unsanctioned racing than any other family of turbo kits on the market! 

  • Our “Desert Storm” X3 with the DS-420RX turbo system won the prestigious Sand Outlaw Series Overall Championship in 2020
  • EVP customers X3's with the  DS-420RX turbo system also dominated the Sand Outlaw Series. At many races, Desert Storm cars finished with a 1-2-3 sweep!
  • Randy Schroeder (with clutching help from H&H Performance) won the 2020 Sparta 300 in Michigan

With hundreds of kits out in the sand, if you're not running a DS Kit, odds are you've see the taillights of one!

Gen3 TiAL Turbochargers with revised ECU calibrations have arrived! Two Versions available and both Turbochargers are direct replacement for the OEM Turbo, meaning no custom exhaust fabrication is needed.

  • 68mm Compressor with X2C Cover 76mm Anti-Surge (Ported) Inlet
    • Up to 420HP with Stock ECU 
    • Up to 450HP with MoTec ECU*
  • 71mm Compressor with X2C Cover and 76mm Anti-Surge (Ported) Inlet: Up to 550 horsepower*
    • 420HP with Stock ECU 
    • 420-550HP with MoTec ECU*

*These power goals require additional supporting modifications including a complete Stage 2 Engine Build.

Many hours of R&D were spent testing and refining the new Gen3 Desert Storm Turbo Systems. These latest generation 68mm turbos net about 4% more horsepower than the Gen1 and Gen2 X1C cover turbos. The additional horsepower comes from increased efficiency of the larger compressor housing combined with the recently revised compressor aerodynamics. The 68mm version has enough cfm for 450 horsepower with quick spool characteristics. The 71mm is capable of 550 horsepower for all-out mind-bending acceleration with slightly slower turbo spool. Both versions have a billet aluminum, ball bearing CHRA to ensure maximum durability under extreme boost power levels. 

EVP has been tuning and building X3’s for longer than any other company period. We know the limitations of each OEM engine component and build each system to fit within these constraints. Each power level we offer is designed to be easily upgradable to the next Level with minimal hardware changes so as your performance requirements change, upgrading to the next level is easy. Also, most of the turbo systems have tuning available for a variety of fuels including 91 octane, so you're not stuck with race gas or E85 tunes all the time. Our Power Levels are so well-dialed that to change to a pump fuel setup, all that is required in most cases is to drain the fuel and reFlash the ECU to the tune that corresponds to the fuel octane!
