President and CEO of Redline Detection, Zack Parker, announced groundbreaking new diagnostic technology at the annual AAPEX Show in Las Vegas. Redline has developed and patented a diagnostic leak detector that replicates the full load of a turbo, supercharged or boosted engine so that it can be safely tested for faults with the engine off.

As OEMs increasingly move to boosted systems to satisfy consumers’ demand for performance paired with fuel economy, there is an urgent need for innovative diagnostic equipment designed specifically for turbos.
Parker announced that PowerSmoke® is now OEM-approved. A major technological advance, PowerSmoke® is the only diagnostic leak detector that can, in a single procedure, reliably detect any high-pressure leak, pinpoint its exact location, and precisely identify failing components. According to Mr. Parker, “Power Smoke® eliminates come-backs, reduces buy-backs, reduces warranty claims, and drastically reduces diagnostic time.”
One of the unique features of PowerSmoke® is that it produces a highly visible vapor that is completely free of dyes and other contaminants that are not recommended by many OEMs.
