    Borg Warner EFR Turbo

    Has anyone fitted one of these turbos to a 1.8T? Seen a couple of vids on Youtube with one fitted to a TT but wondered if anyone had any first hand experience? These turbos are quite new and there are a number of sizes available but there isn't a massive amount of info out there yet. I'm particularly interested in how quick it will spool in comparison to a GT30 or GT28. Any thoughts people?

    Some tuner like them and some don't.

    I was going to get one but was told to hold back until more people have tried them out on the 1.8t

    There are a few people in the US that have fitted them but no power figures or reliability issues just yet?
