After a couple years of time investing thousands of dollars and countless man hours in developing our LNF Borg Warner EFR Turbo kits and exhaust manifolds only to have Borg Warner pull their EFR supply and resources to dedicate them to Indy Car (Non-open wheel spec) we had to do something about it!!!

We listened to what our customers wanted which was a higher flowing bolt on style of LNF tubocharger so we developed the all new WERKSracing WR-2 LNF Bolt On 450hp Turbocharger!!!

how will this interact with my GMPP tune or will a new tune be required?

Any real life feedback on turbo lag or lack there of? I'd be curious to know how the lag is in relation to a stock turbo.

Thanks...this looks nice.

Are there a set of installation instructions, can we see a copy, I'd like to know how much work I'm getting myself into in advance.

Also wondering, with the stock turbo removed, would it be any easier to replace the cat to a freer flow cat at the same time...it's been a while since I eyeballed all the workings on the side of the motor.

your definately going to want a new tune especially if you want the power this turbo can provide. its definately recommended but the should start up and fire with your current tune in there.

the spool is slower the the stock k04 as it is esentially a "bigger" turbo but personally i think the fact that its not as peaky as stock right away is a great facter which from having a cobalt makes it more fun to drive and keeps the tires on the ground a lot easier.

installation would be just like replacing a oem turbo charger with a few minor odds and ends. we will supply a feed line and one of the water lines as the turbo re uses one of the factory lines. other then that its straight forward and imho easy on the kappas.

as for as the cat goes....if your going to do one then i would do it when you swap the turbos. it can be done before or after the fact but the catpipe needs to be removed to pull out the turbo anway. in all honesty a high flow cat or catless would benefit you. having full bolt ons would benefit you aswell with this setup so its something i would look into.

Impressive! This looks like the best true bolt on that's on the market by the numbers (price/power)

Couple of quick questions:
At what peak pressure was this dyno run?
What is the recommended max pressure of this turbo?
Does this turbo use a ball bearing center section?

Where is performance autowerks located? Some time in the next year or so I would like to make my way up there and have you guys do some work to my car.

I too have a bunch of questions about this, so I guess I'll list them out.

What is the install difficulty? My best friend is a master tech for Toyota so I imagine he and I would be able to install this?

What kind of power can this thing make on a stock block. I vowed to keep my car stock but I fear that I have gotten the mod bug and want to do some more to my car and this seems like an awesome upgrade, but I don't want to get into the motor.

What about a tune?

he should be able to install this with ease. its just as difficult as a stock turbo replacement. on the kappas its easier then the cobalts are. everything will come with for install.

the motor should be able to handle the power no problem. i pushed 442whp in my cobalt that i drove daily and then went to an efr setup pushing 416whp. took in on long trips too and drove it pretty hard.
