Borgwarner EFR 8474


We are told these will be available for shipping end of Feb 2019.
The EFR8474 is a brand new release for 2019 and represents the state-of-the-art from BorgWarner Turbo Systems. This unique turbo was designed specifically by BW engineering to combine the high flowing 68mm compressor inducer with a low inertia (fast spooling) 84mm exducer to allow the same footprint to breathe a LOT better up top without compromising down low and midrange.  Efficiency plateaus are widened as a result.  RPM Capabilities have also been re-evaluated in which higher pressure ratios can be better utilized.That’s a 21.8% improvement in flow for a little bit of offset spool RPM, all on the same sized turbo!  Using the same 74mm Gamma-Ti turbine wheel from the EFR8374, this turbo flows an impressive 95lbs/min of air at the same 127k RPM maximum shaft speed.  EFR8474 is intended for applications which will push a turbo to the limit with high boost.  This hybrid turbo uses the lightweight alloy bearing housing derived from Indycar with an aggressive 68mm inducer compressor wheel.
  • Larger compressor wheel inducer diameters increases air flow for increased power capabilities
  • New anodized compressor wheels shaped to maximize flow and new compressor covers to match the contour of the new wheels
  • Along with increasing the wheel size, the compressor wheel blade shape and contour have been optimized to maximize flow while minimizing efficiency hits. BorgWarner also created a distinct compressor cover contour profile to maximize the air flow through the turbocharger. The new compressor wheels have been anodized black for visual impact and to differentiate the new models from existing EFR Series products. With the design changes to the compressor wheel and cover, the company’s latest aftermarket parts will provide up to an extra 200 horsepower (hp) than was previously possible when they are released later this year.
  • For those seeking higher power, BorgWarner’s new EFR 8474, EFR 9274 and EFR 9280 super-cores have compressor wheel inducer diameters between four and six millimeters larger than its existing EFR 8374, EFR 9174 and EFR 9180 products.
