Blitz K3-450R

Posted on 30 November 2011 by admin

Blitz K3-450R BLITZ and Triple K or KKK from Germany joined Turbo forces to create some of the greatest turbochargers on the market.

The Blitz K3-450R is a journal bearing externally gated turbo that is rated at 450hp, the comp cover has a 3 inch inlet and 2 inch outlet and on the turbine side we have a T28 flange with a 3 inch four bolt outlet, there is no option of a V-band either. This kick ass turbo has a working pressure of 17-22psi, which is a stunning efficiency range for a turbo of its size. On a 2L engine it begins spooling at 1500rpm and will pump out 1.4bar by 3000 ~ 3500rpm.

Being German engineered by KKK ( the turbo company that designs turbochargers for Porsche) it has a astonishing life span of 10 – 15 years if properly maintained, its one of the strongest journal bearing turbochargers that I have ever come across within its power range. The K3-450R comes in very popular bolt on kits for the Nissan SR20 and Subaru EJ20 engines, there is also rare 3SGTE kit. The Turbine house has two options the 8.11 or 6.11 which is .63 or .73 A/R. Even though the K3-450R come in a bolt on kit, to get close to that 450hp mark then you may want to consider supporting mods like fuel and ignition system upgrades.

To sum it up it is a great upgrade for anyone with a 1.8L to 3.0L engine looking for the 400 – 450hp mark, and if you are willing to spend the $3000 price for a bolt on kit or $1800 for the bare turbo.

RRP $1800
