BorgWarner details compact wastegate turbocharger unit

BorgWarner, a global leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, delivers its proven wastegate turbocharger for Honda’s new three-cylinder 1.0-liter gasoline direct-injected engine, initially available for the Civic in Asia and Europe. BorgWarner’s compact turbocharger improves engine efficiency and boosts performance, helping achieve an outstanding power output of 95kW (127hp) with quick engine response.

"Designed for powerful, downsized engines, BorgWarner’s wastegate turbocharger combines high power density and excellent response in an extremely compact package," said Frédéric Lissalde, president and general manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems. "BorgWarner’s first global development with Honda reflects our strong reputation as a leading supplier of advanced turbocharging technologies and supports our growth in Asia and around the world."

The B01 turbocharger is a compact, robust unit that has been specifically designed to operate with low noise, vibration and harshness and facilitates the use of low viscosity oil. Its advanced materials withstand exhaust temperatures up to 950°C and rotational speeds of up to 285,000rpm. Fitted with an electrically actuated wastegate for highly accurate control to prevent charge pressure at high engine power, BorgWarner’s turbocharger delivers powerful and efficient performance.

The unit is also said to, in addition, improve fuel economy while providing 'excellent' torque characteristics over the entire engine speed range. A low-inertia turbine wheel has been used to allow a wider performance range, while 'optimized' harnessing of exhaust gas pulsation offers faster response at low engine speeds. BorgWarner also states that the rapid activation of the catalytic converter during cold starts significantly reduces emissions.
