The EFR line of turbos was born out of an internal BorgWarner Turbo
Systems program labeled Advanced Aftermarket Products or AAP. So, the
first thing you might be wondering is what does a new product line of
high-performance turbochargers have to do with commercial applications?
Commercial/industrial turbo products have extreme requirements for
durability, reliability, and aerodynamic performance. Since modern
passenger car applications use turbos smaller than 55mm in turbine wheel
diameter, it's the aerodynamic development from the commercial side of
the business (i.e. everything larger) that feeds into what the
performance enthusiast wants and needs for big power production. Boost
pressures of 45-50 psi (3 bar+) are the norm, not the exception. Also
required is resistance to abusive thrust loads, high vibrations, and
robustness for a wide range of lubrication conditions. Additionally, our
commercial product validation standards are among the highest in the
engine boosting industry; all good things that also benefit the
performance enthusiast or racer.
Ok now that we know that lets talk about how a
factory catalytic converter robs our motor of Horse Power... Inside the factory
CAT there is a ceramic type material that if held with a light at one end the
light can barley pass through the membrane... this material is packed so tight
that it inhibits the flow of exhaust gas... and in turn reducing the amount of
exhaust your motor can expel. Remember a motor is able to make more HP if it
can breath air in and expel exhaust gas out.. This is what a forced induction
(Super & Turbocharged) motors are able to make more power than naturally
