BorgWarner provides the turbocharging technology to Hyundai's new 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline direct injection (T-GDI) engine. Available in the U.S. for the Veloster Turbo passenger car, the engine boasts a maximum output of 204 HP. The Veloster Turbo has been available in Europe since October 2012.

"Combined with Hyundai's direct-injection technology, BorgWarner's turbocharging expertise helps achieve a fuel efficient and responsive engine for an exhilarating driving experience," said Frederic Lissalde, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems. "We are very pleased to expand our successful relationship with Hyundai Motor Company through our supply of advanced turbocharging technology for gasoline engines."

To develop a high-tech engine that provides low-end torque, responsiveness, prompt power delivery and better fuel efficiency, Hyundai combined BorgWarner's K03 twin scroll turbocharging technology with its GDI system. Compared to a single-scroll turbocharger, twin-scroll turbocharging pulls more energy from the exhaust and improves responsiveness even at low RPM.

BorgWarner's twin-scroll turbocharger separates the exhaust gases of the cylinders and minimizes back-pressure. It further optimizes the exhaust gas flow to the turbine wheel with a special channel design. Torque of 270Nm is available over a wide engine speed range, from as low as 1,750 rpm and up to 4,500 rpm. In addition, BorgWarner integrated the exhaust manifold into the stainless steel turbine housing to reduce size and weight while optimizing heat energy recovery for better efficiency.
