The W2 Turbocharger takes everything we love and learned from the W1 and kicks it up a notch. It's capable of delivering over more than 40 extra horsepower and 30 extra feet pound of torque over a W1. The W2 is an upgrade for those who are ready for the next level in performance.
A 6x6 billet compressor wheel and 9-blade turbine wheel make up the heart and soul of the CHRA. Check out the blog part 4 below for more details.
The MHI center section of the W2 is fitted with a high-performance bearing system. Our kit utilizes both larger and thicker journal bearings to support the shaft in the radial load direction and has a full face 360 deg. performance thrust bearing. These pieces are beefed up to take the increased load that comes with increased power output.
For those looking to take the power and performance up even more a ball bearing version of the W2 is in the works and will be available in the spring of 2021, for around $300 more.

The Key to the performance of the W2 lies in our newly designed turbine housing. We increased the A/R size from 0.50 to 0.65. What this effectively does is make the back half of the turbo capable of flowing more exhaust gases for more power. Read our design blog part 2 below for more details about why we chose this A/R.
Not only did we up the size of our turbine housing but we also made our center housing and rotating assembly (CHRA) and compressor cover larger for increased durability when we turn up the boost. Dive into design blog part 3 below for the inside scoop.
The W2 is a 100% drop in unit just like the W1. This was a must for this new turbo upgrade. Look into our design blog part 1 and see what other must haves we had for the W2.
