A very nice looking product. But it needs to be RED.

We will be posting up some numbers shortly. I am dyno tuning this gold turbo on a Cobalt Thursday afternoon.

Just for comparison sake, what are the specs on the stock turbo? Also, I am thinking really hard about getting this on my car in the spring time with some other minor supporting mods, what kind of power is safe on a stock engine?

Stock motor in a Solstice on our dyno we have been over 400 quite a few times. I recommend some valve springs and having Dave tune it and you should be good to go (depending on the fuel you have access to).

looking at it, do we need the type-s housing and the forge bypass valve? not trying to stray anyone from getting them, but im just curious as to what the benefits are and/or if it would need to have it to be installed correctly

Here are the specs for the k04(ignore the BNR 2871 specs)



Anything passed the 400hp mark can put piston rings at risk.

Not sure about the Type-s housing, I'm sure Werks can dive into that. The reason though for the Forge bypass valve design is because its the most efficient way to expel air from the system. Remember these were designed to bring you a package similar to what the EFR series offers. There is a shortage from BW so Werk's(and correct me if I'm wrong) wanted to provide a product that was readily available but along the same lines using Precision components which are pure sex btw. Good company

so in ur opinion 40rty would it be better for the actual "bypass valve" or for the air to "vent to the atmosphere" (the options they are giving)?

Well, for a engine like ours that runs on metered air measurement, a Bypass valve will be more than sufficient for something sticking to stock turbo and even upgrades such as the WR-3 and similar. BOV do have their place in high horse power applications and where tuning will allow for a readjustment of the tune to support the BOV.

we use a lot of percision stuff and its been proven great throughout the racing world in all applications. they are number 1 in my books. the only borg turbo i personally like is the efr series. to each is their own though.

we built this to add to the world of having a bolt on turbo. zzp already did the zfr and we werent going to copy it. the percision stuff is no slouch and has just as many great features such as the efr does. we made it work with a stock type setup integrating the breather and also the stock style bov.

we recommend the forge unit for this turbo as well as the wr2. with the wr3 i would say its needed. also the anti surge cover isnt 100% needed but its a good thing to have imho. any time you can recirculate that air in, its beneficial to you. the wr3 is pretty massive.

To the wheels. It really all depends on the tune on how long everything will last. I know guys who had joe blow tune the car and it blew up at 300 whp, that's why I said have Dave tune it. He's been around the block a couple times with the LNF and if you look in his sig, those numbers prove he knows whats up.
