TurboClub Mission Statement 1996


A.T.C.R. Mission Statement

The goals of the TurboClub are to create an International Database of Owners with access to turbo knowledge and products that can be utilised to make turbo ownership easier and more enjoyable for all.



This includes getting together for different activities and also information in servicing and modifying different turbo vehicles. I would like to ask that anyone with any hints or specialist knowledge to submit via Email or Post, for the benefit of us all. This information includes general  articles and service and mechanical data.

I would appreciate any written input at all from you with your experiences.

Dont forget it may be able to help someone out of trouble.

Information in relation to many TURBO Makes & Models is now available at this time

You really only want to know a solution when you have the problem.


The TurboClub is about TURBO Owners helping each other.

The ‘Turbo Club’ has emerged and evolved from theStarion Turbo Australian Registered Independant Owners Network,so don’t be surprised at the mention of the Mitsubishi Starion on this site. 

P.S. All original S.T.A.R.I.O.N. members are Lifetime RTO’s – EMAIL ME NOW

Greg & Pauline. The two people behind the TurboClub.

Greg has been involved in modifying cars since 1969 when he first worked over his Chrysler Valiant AP5 225 Slant Six & Torqueflite Push Button Auto to run flat 14’s over the 1320 (Quarter Mile) Regularly dragged at Calderpark against V8 GTHO Falcons embarrassing them severely;-) Also familiar with V8’s, his AMC 401 ci Javelin and GMC supercharger is constantly being built up.

Pauline’s first Turbo, a Nissan  EXA, bought brand new when originally released in Australia was good training for her to be able to handle Greg’s  highly modded Starion when he temporarily went on a yuppie kick in a BMW Six Series and tried to act his age – yeah, right.

Talked into buying it and giving up her Mazda MX6 (Eunos 30X) she has still not forgiven me. We talk about selling it occasionally but I am procrastinating while driving it to work for obvious reasons!!  We may have to get her another Eunos 30X but maybe a turbo might make it worthwhile as they are a nice handling FWD.

Greg’s choice..    ‘82 STARION JA TURBO.

The Starion was bought in ’84 when going to buy a Cordia from a Caryard that had the cheaper Cordia advertised. They said they would hold it till I got there in an hour. Needless to say it was sold  prior to my arrival. BUT the gleaming silver Starion parked in a prominent position out the front was available.

The salesman was smart enough to see that I really wanted the Starion and coaxed me over three hours to make the huge deposit and forget the payments till next month!! They offered me a great trade in on my ’80 Mazda 323 SS twincarb 1500 that was in immaculate condition with sunroof and mags etc. – THE STARION WAS WORTH EVERY CENT!!

Turbo Trainer.

When I am not trying to construct this site, I use this fully motorised turbo game chair? to have some fun driving NFS or flying F22 Lightning.

Went to my dentist a while back and noticed he had upgraded all his chairs. Asked what happened to the old ones? “Out the back, do you want one?”  Did I ever, I have been looking for a similar type of games set up for ages so made a ridiculous offer of 250 for something he paid over 10 thousand for a few years ago. SOLD,- the deal of the decade!

Modified it immediately with a strong monitor arm to support the monitor and steering wheel setup. The pedals fitted perfectly in the right place and it is able to be adjusted in all directions with the touch of a switch. Pulled the back padding assy off and mounted some Aura Interactor special effects speakers that vibrate the hell out of you when playing most games. Pauline loves it, she would love to get on to it with an axe!! Well can’t win them all.
