This complete turbocharger with electronic actuator can help the engine produce up to an impressive 447BHP (333 kW), as proven by on-vehicle results.

GTX Gen II compressor aerodynamics increase turbocharger flow by a staggering 32% compared to the OEM turbo.

Elevate your driving game, and experience performance like never before with PowerMax™.

WARNING: Maximum allowable turbocharger speed is 186krpm. The use of this product above max turbocharger speed is at the owner’s risk, and can result in damage and premature failure. To protect the turbocharger from overspeed when operating, a speed sensor port is machined into the compressor housing for the fitment of speed sensor part numbers 781328-0003 (includes sensor and gauge), and 781328-0004 (includes speed sensor). Speed sensors sold separately.
