    BNR GTX14 Turbocharger Upgrade

    Not satisfied with simply holding the stock turbo 1.4T world record with 196WHP and 259WTQ (race fuel, minor bolt ons, BNR Tune), we've been tinkering for a while on a bigger wheel turbo upgrade.

    Starting with a brand new core from GM, we machine out the compressor housing to accept our all new billet wheel, featuring the latest aero technologies and laser balanced to 200,000RPM. Initial testing has yielded just over 200WHP on 91 octane fuel. We estimate 220-230WHP or more capable from E85 or race fuel, but have not finalized testing on different fuels yet.

    Look for this upgrade to be available in the next couple of weeks

    This sounds awesome! Would we have to upgrade any internals? I would also imagine we would need to re-tune.

    It's not the same. Our wheel is completely different, and different size than vtuner's. Plus we are using only brand new turbocharger cores, not used/rebuilt.
