This reviewer was highly
impressed with the equipment's
ability to provide both high and
low pressure testing for leaks.
The Redline Detect ion
SpeedSmoke, No. 95-0135,
is designed to pinpoint leaks in
sealed systems within vehicles
from naturally aspirated to turbocharged, diesel, and boosted engines. The machine pinpoints EVAP leaks, intake leaks,
exhaust leaks, wind and water
leaks, turbo boost leaks, CAC
leaks, cabin leaks, as well as
leaks in faulty seals, gaskets,
fittings, and more.

inding a leak in a vehicle can
be a bit like trying to find a
needle in a haystack. But Lou
Fort, lead technician at K.A.R.S. Inc.
in Huntingburg, Indiana, knows just
the tool to help technicians pinpoint
a leak's location. According to Fort,
Redline Detection's SpeedSmoke,
No. 95-0135, is the " [quickest] way
to pressure test not only any EVAP
system, but also a high pressure,
turbocharged [system], and a
lot more. "
After receiving the SpeedSmoke, Fort
describes a simple setup - plugging in
the light provided in the accessory kit to
charge, reading through the manual, and
checking to make sure the smoke fluid
level was correct. After that, Fort says he
just had to pick the appropriate adapters
for whatever test he was performing.
Redline's SpeedSmoke comes with a
variety of accessories, packaged in a nice
storage case, Fort notes.
Also tucked into the accessory kit
is the manual. Fort says he did read the
manual before using the SpeedSmoke to
prevent himself from accidentally damaging the machine. The manual includes
Redline's contact information, as well as
basic instructions for both high and low
pressure testing, safety steps for using the
power intake properly, and a troubleshooting guide.
" Redline has even gone so far as to
put basic operating instructions on the
rear of the unit for a quick reminder or
for the [users] that don't care to read the
manual, " Fort says.
" The SpeedSmoke has to be one of the
easiest pieces of equipment to make use
of, " Fort says.
All the user needs to do is attach the
power leads to a battery, position the test
switch for either EVAP or pressure, air or
vapor, and set the flow rate.
Overall, Fort was very impressed with
" It is a logical migration on the power
smoke side of the industry to join with
[Redline's] SmokeAir in offering standalone high-pressure testing. Redline has
yet to disappoint us with [their] highquality, ingenuitive tools and equipment. "
