BorgWarner to supply turbos for Ford's V8 diesels

UPDATE: According to Ford, BorgWarner has been supplying turbos to International for the F-series since this time last year. Automotive News apparently mistook an old press release for a new product announcement.

BorgWarner has won the bid to begin supplying International Engine with a turbocharger setup that will help power Ford's F-series pickups. The new turbo system, which employs a two-stage snail and variable turbine geometry (VTG), will be slapped onto the 6.4-liter PowerStroke V8 diesel, and will increase the oilburner's output while simultaneously lowering emissions. This newest implementation of VTG proves what BorgWarner asserted back in March when it released a report saying that the new turbocharger setup will filter its way down to lesser models in the coming years.
