Harrop HTV1320-LSJ using Eaton TVS technology
Harrop HTV1320-LSJ using Eaton TVS technology.
Since our first mention of the development of our HTV1320-LSJ, we have been feverishly working on the final design & tooling.
I have had many PM's, emails & phone calls requesting more information and "test" units, which has prompted this thread.
The intention was to be in production late-Dec07/early-Jan08, however just before releasing the design into production (2nd week Dec) I decided to change the layout to further improve the performance. Fundamentally, we have moved the vacuum actuator to the opposite side (underside in vehicle) as it enables a significantly improved intake flow-path.
The result is a far superior product, albeit slightly delayed. The reality is that we would not have had the original design ready for shipment yet anyway, as there has also been a delay in obtaining enough TVS1320 rotors (we must satisfy our OE commitments first).
We have commenced tooling of the final design, and now expect to be shipping production units in late February.
Some features include:
Although it is mechanically a bolt-on solution, recalibration of the ECU and any ancillary items will need to be addressed (upgraded fuel system/injectors etc).
- Bolt-on solution - no adaptors required.
- Interchangable pulleys - shipped with a standard size, with others available as options.
- Pre-prepared for the higher-flowing LS4 throttle body, but original will also fit.
- Powder-coat finish as standard, with polished as an option.
- Service free - these are OE-quality sealed units that require no maintenance other than typical OE-style checks.
Now for the really good news ...
We anticipate that the retail price will only be ~US$2250.

Turbos are OK ... But its better being oversize, stroked & blown!
