The Borg Warner S480 | A turbo for many applications!
Serious builds need a serious turbo, and a Borg Warner S480 is just that!
Chances are if you've done any research into turbocharger builds, you've likely heard or seen mention of the Borg Warner S480 turbo. That's because it's been regarded as one of the best turbo's for large engines looking to make some serious power. There are even a few builds out there on smaller displacement engines using this turbo, making it a strong contender for turbo builds of all sizes!
But what makes the Borg Warner S480 so special and deserving of the elite status it's earned? Starting with the flow capabilities, it's proven to make well over 750hp and pushing the limits of 1200+hp on the right engine. It's overall size is huge too, with a staggering 80mm inducer and 1.32 A/R. We've seen the Borg Warner S480 on small block chevy's and ford's, run in a twin-turbo setup on big block chevy's, and even on smaller displacement engines such as a 2.4L 4G63 in a crazy, 700awhp built Evo 9. The Borg Warner S480 has proven to be a likely contender for every build!
To make the turbo even better, the Borg Warner S480 utilizes the BorgWarner / AirWerks "S" generation compressor wheel with Extended Tip Technology for the absolute best in turbo aerodynamics resulting in low RPM spool-up & high RPM horsepower output. You'll get a large T6 divided twin scroll compressor inlet and a 5" V-band flange downpipe discharge, all made to the same high-quality standards Borg Warner is known for.
