During the SEMA Show, BorgWarner will feature its compact EFR-7163
turbocharger, the official turbocharger of the 2014 IZOD IndyCar^® Series
season. The EFR-7163 turbocharger combines the responsiveness and compact
packaging of a B1 turbocharger with greater flow capacity to achieve up to 550
horsepower. The lightweight Gamma-Ti mixed-flow turbine features innovative
geometry to increase turbine flow while the optimized compressor wheel manages
as much flow capacity as a larger conventional wheel. The lightweight aluminum
bearing housing also reduces the turbocharger's overall weight by
approximately 2 pounds.
In addition, BorgWarner will present its current EFR turbocharger line, which
features race-proven Gamma-Ti turbine wheel technology with a range of units
supporting 225 to 1,000 horsepower per turbocharger, as well as its AirWerks
turbocharger line, which includes the competition-ready S and K series
supporting a range of 145 to 1,700 horsepower per turbocharger. For more
