Blouch Performance Turbo was founded by Robert Blouch Sr. in February 1980. His son, Bob Jr., joined the business in 1990 and spearheaded the development of bolt-on upgrade turbos for the emerging four cylinder sport compact market.
In 1996, Blouch Performance Turbo became a Mitsubishi Turbo distributor that further fueled the development of bolt-on upgrades for the ever popular DSMs. The horsepower potential of those turbos was greatly increased by installing Garrett compressors and turbines that in many ways were ahead of their time.
In 2000, BPT became an IHI Turbo distributor that prompted the development of upgrade turbochargers for the emerging Subaru WRX and STi market. In 2006, Blouch Performance Turbo was added to the elite group of Garrett Performance distributors for Garrett Performance turbochargers and related products and is the only Garrett Performance distributor on the East Coast.
