For years, BorgWarner has been one of the largest OE turbo suppliers for the automotive market. Whereas in the past turbochargers were mainly used to obtain more power, today they are generally used to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.
Turbochargers were being used to obtain more power from internal combustion engines as early as the beginning of the 20th century. In 1952, Kopp + Kausch, a forerunner of BorgWarner Turbo Systems and until then a manufacturer of various combustion engine parts, began developing turbos in Germany together with AG Kühnle. Schwitzer, another forerunner of BorgWarner, introduced the turbocharger at the Indianapolis 500.
After years of development, 3K-Warner Turbosystems GmbH was founded in 1998 as a BorgWarner subsidiary. AG Kühnle and Kopp + Kausch are part of this company. A year later, Schwitzer was also added to the list and the entity became 'BorgWarner Turbo Systems'.
MasterTurbo has been supplying the entire BorgWarner turbo series for years. Nowadays these turbos are manufactured for maximum durability, resulting in high efficiency. The turbos produced for the aftermarket are of the same quality and are 100% equal to the OE turbos. They have a long life span and provide high performance. MasterTurbo has a large number of BorgWarner turbos in stock.
