Experience & Background: Who is Cartech?

Cartech began as a manufacturer of aftermarket turbo systems in 1977 with their first shop in Dallas, Texas. The company has grown to enjoy an international reputation for the design and manufacture of high performance automotive components. The position achieved as a recognized authority regarding turbocharger applications has led to being hired by several major racing teams as an engineering consultant. Among the successful efforts were the 1986 IMSA GTU class championship Porsche 924 Turbo, the SCCA Escort Series champ in 1994 with the Nissan 300ZX, a Bonneville record setting Mazda RX-7, a 6-time NMRA Outlaw Mustang champion, and a 3-time NMRA Renegade Mustang champion.

Cartech’s responsibility is to sort through the engineering confusion and marketing circumstances and select the best tool for the specific job.  That's just one of the areas where background and experience allow Cartech to create the BEST forced induction hardware available today. Today, Cartech produces hardware ranging from street application turbocharger systems to specialized drag racing fuel system components. Cartech moved from Dallas to San Antonio in 1991 and is currently housed in a 6,000 square foot facility. Products designed and manufactured by Cartech have been featured in over 120 magazine articles over a span of twenty-five years, the latest being a feature in the May 2002 issue of “5.0 Mustang and Super Fords Magazine”. Cartech enjoys a preeminent market position in the aftermarket turbocharger system business, as well as aftermarket intercoolers and fuel systems.
