The Shell Turbo Chargers failed to advance in the semifinal round of the All-Filipino Cup. Head coach Rino Salazar was replace by former Shell mentor Joe Lipa beginning the Commissioner's Cup. [1] The Turbo Chargers with Bobby Parks back as their import, won their first three games and were five wins and one loss when they lost four of their last five matches in the eliminations. In their last assignment on July 31, Bobby Parks was accused of deliberately throwing games after Shell lost to San Miguel in overtime by one point, thereby eliminating Toñdena 65 Rhum, who were hoping to gain a tie with the Beermen and a playoff for the last semifinals berth. Parks was replace by Jerome Lane starting the semifinal round and Shell ended up placing fifth and last among the five-team semifinalist.

In the Governor's Cup, Shell originally brought in Guy Taylor as their import but Taylor was unimpressive in their exhibition outing against Pepsi Mega in Subic and was sent home in favor of Carl Ray Harris, who lasted eight games with the Turbo Chargers. Shell was the last entry into the semifinals, winning against Tondeña 65 Rhum Masters in their playoff game on October 30. [2] Delano Demps, a former 7-Up import who led his team to a runner-up finish two years ago, came in to replace Harris but he went back home after two games. Michael Morrison was on his third tour of duty with the Turbo Chargers and played five games and their fourth and last reinforcement in the Governor's Cup, Terrence Lewis, played six games as Shell Turbo Chargers eventually settled for sixth place.
