Techco International was launched in 2008 as an engineering services and performance parts entity. Based in Anaheim, CA Techco was staffed with a collection of former Saleen Inc personnel from the previous company’s 25 years of existence. As per agreement, Techco was to supply engine, suspension and appearance items for serialized vehicles produced by SMS Limited (Steve Saleen’s SMS Supercars) while selling performance parts and services direct to customers under this new Techco brand.

For a brief period of time, Techco International was a full-service speed shop offering many items originally engineered for S197 Saleen Mustangs as well as improved versions of similar OE Saleen items.

Now lets take a look at 05-0683 S281 Supercharged, a 2005 Saleen that went through the Techco finishing school of high performance bliss.

Results of dyno run from June 2013:

Went to the dyno today and have some updated numbers with proper SAE correction factor. Pretty pleased overall. I got third place with 561HP. A fox body race car made 673HP and there was a 1990 300ZX that put over 730HP down. Lots of other nice cars…2013 Viper (529HP) and a 911 (476HP).


Updates as of April 2014 include:
* CSF Radiator
* Upgraded to 2007+ cooling lines and crossover
* 170 deg thermostat
* Pioneer AVH-4000NEX Stereo (I can control volume, seek, source, and launch Siri right from my GT500 steering wheel)
* Ambient Lighting center console
* 65mm FRPP throttle body
* Cortex Watts Link
* Griggs Coilovers
* Welded and painted axle tubes
* Moser axles
* WMS Stealth Hood Pins
* Replaced exterior badges and horn badge
* Added factory weather strip to rear of hood where it meets cowl (allows you to get cold air from outside into the passenger compartment instead of sucking in hot engine air)


Results of dyno run from May 2014:

Went to a local car show today and they had a mobile dyno so I figured I would give it a shot since I added the throttle body and improved (but not eliminated) my belt slip. I was very happy with the results. 608 SAE Corrected HP at the wheels. Uncorrected it was 620RWHP. This was all on my street, 93 octane tune. Probably get 10 more HP with the 100 octane tune. Also saw Seethrough there with his sweet Barricade replica. Awesome car and workmanship!

A Quick, Customized and Innovative Approach to the Automotive Aftermarket

Anaheim, California (September 22, 2008) – TECHCO, “The Technology Company” formally announces its plans to fill the niche of providing truly innovative products for the Automotive Aftermarket.

TECHCO has reassembled many of the members of the former team that helped design, develop, test and certify the Saleen S7, Saleen S281 Mustangs, Saleen/Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustang and Saleen S331 Sport Trucks. As collaborators and former employees of the famed automotive company, Saleen, Inc., TECHCO’s Staff has the talent and vision to bring decades of experience into the automotive aftermarket industry by the design, development and manufacturing of ultra-high performance automotive parts and accessories. “We’ve assembled a great team from the world of specialty vehicle performance, design and manufacturing. With our skills and resources, there’s no limit to what we can provide to our customers,” stated Jimmy Moore, Director of Operations for TECHCO.

TECHCO’s vision is to supply to its customers ultra-high performance automotive parts and accessories and offer complete Engineering, Manufacturing, and full Vehicle Assembly services. TECHCO has invested heavily in engineering and manufacturing equipment to provide unmatched in-house capabilities to develop and produce truly innovative and high quality products for the Aftermarket, while maintaining low costs and reduced lead times. The expansive 150,000 sq.ft. facility combines state-of-the art engineering and manufacturing capabilities and resources with our hands on assembly experience. In-house resources include Engine and Chassis Dynamometers, CNC Machine Shop, CMM Lab, Fabrication Shop, SLS Prototyping, CAD/CAE workstations, R&D Lab, Component Subassembly Shop, Vehicle Workshop, Customer Install Shop, and Race Team with Workshop. These extensive in-house resources ensure TECHCO’s technical excellence and market competitiveness in the Automotive Industry. “Our spacious facility allows us room to house all our engineering and manufacturing equipment in one place, resulting in fast-time-to-market and the highest quality products that still deliver exceptional value to our customers,” stated Moore.

The TECHCO Reverse-Revolution Twin Screw Supercharger(TM) is TECHCO’s flagship new product, will completely revolutionize supercharger design. “Our Design of the (TECHCO) Twin Screw Supercharger, is not merely further innovation in supercharging, but is truly a revolutionary advancement on Supercharger Design and application. We’ve taken all of our expertise in supercharger design and created a new product that provides superior power and performance on all levels,” says John Spruill, Vice President of Engineering for TECHCO.

“We designed innovation into every aspect of the new (TECHCO) Supercharger, from the new patent-pending A-Frame (Dual) Intercooler configuration with Extruded Aluminum 6061-T6 Housing, to the all new 3.0L Reverse Rotation Screws with 6061-T6 Rotor Housing with fully integrated Bypass System, and Long, High Flow Runners. It’s like nothing else on the market today,” says Billy Tally, Chief Technical Officer for TECHCO.

Nuts and Bolts of The TECHCO Reverse-Revolution Twin Screw Supercharger(TM)

What makes the TECHCO Reverse-Revolution Twin Screw Supercharger so revolutionary is the unique design (Patent Pending), which optimizes airflow efficiency throughout. Incoming air is fed into the front of the supercharger, not the back like conventional designs. This ensures that the incoming air has minimal turns, eliminating restrictions, before entering into the supercharger housing. Additionally, without the need for a complex inlet tube, the largest possible orifice size is maintained, maximizing air flow efficiencies. The air then flows into the lobes of the Reverse-Revolution asymmetric multi-lobe compressor screws, where it is compressed, not merely moved, as in other forms of supercharging. The compressed air then flows into the intercooler housing which houses (2) intercoolers mounted in an A-Frame configuration to ensure the airflow is evenly distributed to each runner bank. The Patent Pending Twin Intercooler design results in higher cooling capacity and greater thermal efficiencies as the cooling water only has to pass through the intercoolers once, keeping the charge air cool. A further benefit of the front Inlet Design is the additional package space above the supercharger that is used for long high flow Intake Runners, which increases low end torque.

The resulting design of The TECHCO Reverse-Revolution Twin Screw Supercharger allows air to move through the supercharger quickly and efficiently, without significant heat buildup, and at the highest resulting airflow volume at low boost output. The performance result is maximized horsepower and torque output.
