JBS Turbo Kits hold their own on the GTi International drag strip.

All the JBS Team would like thank everyone who supported JBS over the GTI INTERNATIONAL weekend.

We had a great response to our new products and conversions.

Many thanks also to the JBS customers who displayed their cars over the weekend. Especially:

  • Tim Orpen JBS GT30 Audi TT,
  • Ashley Philpot 1.8 T conversion and JBS IHI stage 1 VW Polo 6N,
  • Andy Smith JBS TS 650 Turbo VW Golf R32
  • John Hurditch JBS and C-C tuned VW Golf Mk5 ED30

The JBS tuned cars held their own on the strip, clocking the fastest ¼ mile and 0-60 times of the weekend. As well as holding the top spots in their class on both Saturday and Sunday.

Proving that JBS Turbo kits will give even a supercar a run for its money but are also just as reliable, in Tim Orpens case the JBS GT30 powered TT pulling out regular sub 3.5 seconds 0-60 times and is a daily driver.
