After months i finally got the email from GH that there turbos are back in stock. During the wait I ran across a company called BNR and they have an upgraded turbo for our platform. Wheel size increased by 4mm on both sides all new internals, they ceramic coat the housing. Has anyone hear ever used BNR turbos or know someone who has? Their price of $1,650 for what they offer is a great deal, they use your cores. Searched on this forum but search option won't use BNR as a keyword.

I've paid pretty close attention to this platform for 7 years now. Never heard of them. For the amount of effort it takes to replace the turbos I wouldn't want to be a guinea pig.

Using original cores isn't unheard of, but it sounds problematic for a daily driver vehicle. If it's a project car then that is different

Are they only doing compressor side and not turbine side also?

Emailed them for clarification, they upgrade both sides. Turbine inducer is 44mm and compressor inducer is 40mm. I found out about them threw a friend who is big into focus st. He has their upgrade on his car for last 2 years and has had no issues. BNR is based in Alabama.

They do rebuild the turbos and not just upgrade the wheels. This is their link.
If anyone looks at what they offer I would like your opinion.

I'm on the fence, not even Brad has tuned one with their turbos. Very few videos on YouTube, mostly Focus and Mazda owners. But no negative reviews and has positive comments on his Facebook page. I might end up being the guinea pig, and give this mom and pop shop a chance.

From looking that's just an intake compressor side upgrade. Probably the reason behind the cheaper pricing over GH also GH is a billet aluminum compressor wheel not a cast.

Forgive me Gearhead, BNRsupercars doesn't respond to email, or phone calls. And now your back out of stock. I was stupid and will not hesitate again when I get the next email from you and I'll buy right then and there. Man I gut punched myself on this one.
