The BorgWarner R2S turbochargers use two series-connected turbochargers of different sizes to offer high boost pressure and linear performance. One features a variable turbine geometry (VTG) for the high-pressure stage and is controlled by an electric actuator.

As the engine speed increases, the exhaust gas is directed towards a larger, low-pressure turbo. The BorgWarner R2S adapts to changes with regards to engine operation quickly, helping with better efficiency and eliminating lag.
