Direct drop in replacement (easy install, no adaptors needed) installs without modifications
Just like the OEM turbo, the NX2 uses a divided, one piece twin scroll turbine housing proprietary to the Mustang Ecoboost. Turbo lag has a new enemy.
High efficiency NX2 compressor & turbine wheels (more horsepower better response, less lag
Dual Ball Bearing
The NX2 CHRA features a dual ball bearing to help reduce spool friction and increase longevity.
With a responsive, and torquey twin scroll design, the stock turbo on the Ford EcoBoost Mustang is one of a kind. Because of the reverse rotation twin scroll design, an aftermarket upgrade is unable to properly sit in the stock location. The solution? To develop an innovative, clean-slate design built to bolt on like stock but offer the power aptitude of an aftermarket turbo. The billet compressor wheel was designed for a perfect balance of peak power and response, and hand-crafted to slip smoothly into the stock turbo position. It utilizes their latest generation blade aero with 11 full blades (no splitter) for a max flow rate of 52 lb/min (spinning Counter clockwise). The wastegate actuator is their high pressure 18 PSI actuator. Compressor Housing retains OEM connections with a 3″ hose coupler inlet, 2″ hose coupler outlet.
