There is no replacement for displacement as the old saying goes, if you have the cubic inches you climb the power ladder.
The power and reliability proven X-37 has a new bigger brother. Welcome the New X-Series Fiesta champion the bigger X-47+.
Development of a New X-Series Turbo doesn't just happen over night. It's taken 9 months of design, development and testing to get the performance power and early spool just where you demand it.
The brief was very simple, create a higher flowing stock frame charger that could crack the 300+whp (E-Fuels) barrier whilst still delivering the proven reliability of the 270 whp capable X-37.
The new turbo has the ability to spool to 14 PSI at 1800 revs and to full Boost as low as 2200 revs,it will continue to flow and make power to just over 7500, that's a huge 5000 wide band of sheer pleasure.
Whats the Secret ?
The OEM Stock Ford turbo has one limiting factor, its was never designed to flow the amount of exhaust gases to produce north of 300 whp. All regular off the shelf exhaust shafts are either rated to 240 bhp and 290 bhp by the Borg Warner factory . To extract any more power from this KP39 unit you must either shoe horn another turbocharger into the standard exhaust housing or make a larger turbine shaft , we believed this larger shaft option to be the best and most cost effective solution. We looked into the packaging constraints of the small turbocharger and decided a 18%-20% increase in diameter would still enable the very near stock like spool but give a perfect amount of flow to generate the golden 300whp number up high. Another very important consideration is reliability the 45mm diameter turbine would leave enough metal in the exhaust housing to guarantee structural strength, any bigger and without serious long term track testing and hot to cold cycles we could not have guaranteed the Ford OE Housing structural integrity.
A unique custom designed shaft was commissioned, code named the C45, this new 45mm diameter unit was designed to replace the older C39 39mm diameter blade set previously used on the X-37 and X-27 Hybrids. The visual differences are quite astonishing, take a look below. The new expected flow rate is far superior
