SEMA 2018: BorgWarner’s Airwerks And EFR Turbochargers

At this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas from Oct. 30 to Nov. 2, 2018, BorgWarner is showcasing its extensive lineup of “Engineered For Racing (EFR)” and AirWerks Series turbochargers.

“Across the aftermarket, BorgWarner’s EFR and AirWerks turbochargers are recognized for their superior performance and SEMA is the perfect venue to showcase them” said Michael Boe, Vice President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems Aftermarket.

Formula Drift 2018 champion James Deane’s Worthouse race car, which features a BorgWarner EFR 9180 turbocharger, is on display in the booth in addition to the new EFR super-cores which include the EFR 8474, EFR 9274 and EFR 9280.

According to Borgwarner, these super cores maximize air flow in the turbocharger via larger compressor inducer wheel diameters, among other design changes to the compressor stage. With the design changes to the compressor wheel and cover, the latest EFR super-cores will provide up to 200 more horsepower (hp) than previous products.   

“We strive to offer products that satisfy the specific personal and market needs of our diverse customer base,” Said Boe, adding that as a result, BorgWarner continues to expand its product portfolio with new boosting solutions to enhance the performance of its customers’ products.

Also on display is BorgWarner’s newly available AirWerks S300SX-E 72 millimeter (mm) super-core, its most powerful S300 aftermarket super-core to date. While maintaining the same compact size and near identical ultra-fast response time, the S300SX-E 72 mm super-core can deliver up to 1,100 horsepower, an extra 100 horsepower more than its next highest model.

Both the EFR and AirWerks Series turbochargers are included in the latest volume of its High-performance Turbochargers Catalog, volume 9, which is available in BorgWarner’s SEMA booth.

“We are always excited to release the new volume of our High-performance Turbochargers catalog, because it’s like their birthday for every performance enthusiast,” said Boe.

According to BorgWarner, its wide range of aftermarket turbocharging products profiled in the High-Performance Turbochargers Catalog are sold through its distribution network. A list of BorgWarner approved distributors and further product information, in addition to the Match-Bot and can be found at turbodriven.com.

Further product information and a list of the company’s approved aftermarket distributors is available on borgwarner.com/aftermarket.
