BNR Turbos have come a long way in the last few years. During this time, it's been common to compare them to a bolt-on ATP turbo setup. They're very similar in actual functionality at the end of the day. I have always been a proponent of the ATP turbos. I personally had the first ever bolt-on style GTX3071 for a Mazdaspeed on my '08 MS3 which I installed in August of 2011. That turbo is still running around putting out 380whp on the guy’s car (twin-charged MS3) who I sold it to when I upgraded in 2012 to an HTA3586. It is now going on six years old, and if that doesn’t speak to the quality of ATP/Garrett turbos, I don’t know what does.Read More

It doesn’t take a lot of ownership time with the new FA20DIT powered 2015 and 2016 WRX to decide that there will be some modifications in your future.
