They get the job done just fine but for an increased RED LINE or faster revs we recommend an upgrade to Titanium valves for most applications Ceramic bearings and DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coatings minimize frictional losses in your engine These are ways to "FIND" HP in your engine

How Turbochargers Work

They allow the turbine shaft to spin with less friction than the fluid bearings used in most turbochargers They also allow a slightly smaller lighter shaft to be used This helps the turbocharger accelerate more quickly further reducing turbo lag Ceramic turbine blades are lighter than the steel blades used in most turbochargers Again
