Mirror Image Turbos

US Patent US7571717B2 Turbocharger System

"Up until now, every twin turbo engine in existence has run a non-symmetrical turbocharger arrangement… Aside from the performance you will gain running the industry’s best turbos, you will admire and appreciate the symmetrical balance." - Tom Nelson

Everything under the hood... symmetrical. No more turbos dumping out all to one side, or ridiculous uneven header setups that look like an afterthought.

Nelson Racing Engines announces the release of their patented Mirror Image Turbocharger Series. Starting from a clean slate, NRE has engineered what they are claiming is the World's Best Turbocharger, in both performance and aesthetics.

With one turbo rotating counterclockwise, NRE's trick set up allows for everything under the hood to be symmetrical. No more turbos dumping out all to one side, or ridiculous uneven header setups that look like an afterthought. This beautiful system looks as though it was engineered by NASA, with the performance to back it up.

Developing more than 100 horsepower more than other turbos on the market, all NRE Mirror Image Turbocharger Series turbos feature fully billet compressor wheels - a concept derived from over 18 years of building the most wicked engines on the market. Additionally these turbos also feature water-cooled center sections and divided exhaust housings - allowing for super spooling!
