X48R Pumaspeed Hybrid Turbo Fiesta ST180 X48R Pumaspeed Hybrid Turbo Fiesta ST180 Pumaspeed X-47 Hybrid Turbo Fiesta ST 180 X47R BRAND NEW X48R Fiesta ST EcoBoost Turbocharger

Up to 345bhp capable on every car! - Pumaspeed Hybrid Turbochargers

  • Unique turbine shaft with race spec blades
  • Motorsport heavy duty 360 Degree bearing assembly
  • Modified seal plate to match hi-flow compressor wheel
  • Supplied with CNC machined racing inlet elbow

  • Brand new technology for 2022

The brand new Fiesta ST180 X48R hybrid turbo was rumoured at the start of summer 2021. Pumaspeed produced 10 units and sent them to some distributors around the world for evaluation. After several months of testing we are happy to announce that the sale of the new X48R is now ready to roll.

What are the physical differences between the X47 Classic, X47R and the X48R?

- The X47 Classic is rated to 325 bhp and has a 43mm impeller with 7 blades. Silver compressor cover with silver compressor wheel.
- The X47R is rated to 340 bhp and has a 46mm impeller with 7 blades. Silver compressor cover with anodised red compressor wheel.
- The X48R is rated to 345 bhp and has a 46mm impeller with 8 curved blades to grab and compress more air. Dark grey compressor cover with anodised red compressor wheel. 

The new X48R lifts the lid on power achievable from a hybrid turbo, it maximises the stock Ford fuel injectors and will boost the car around to the 345bhp mark (fuel and modifcation dependent). It can also be mapped with the larger injectors if required to add a tad more power across the rev range, we saw a further 5-10bhp on back to back testing.

Whats the cost difference?

Quite simply we have only lifted the cost of this unit to £40 more than the previous X47R. With over 1200 X47 and X47R sold since 2016 you can never go wong with this incredible hybrid turbo and now even more so with the new and improved X48R.

Why the X Series turbo range over their competitors?

With well over 1000 units sold, the X series range of turbos to suit the Fiesta ST180 have proven power and reliability running through their DNA. The turbo range has been used in street and competition all across the world, including USA and Australia.

The X Series range of turbos are the only hybrid turbos to consistently get into the 12's and below quarter mile times in various countries on various customer and dealer cars. With trap speeds in excess of 116mph, this shows the true pulling power of the turbocharger with no let up at higher speeds.

The X47 started life as a 290-300whp capable turbo but the Pumaspeed passion for development has pushed us to try and get the unit up by around 10% in wheel horse power terms. We now have 3 available configurations listed above, all of which use the unique 45.1mm turbine shaft with varying angles of clipping to the blades to add extra flow.

Contact us by email or facebook messenger for any further details you wish to know. We currently have a limited availability on the Pumaspeed X48R hybrid turbocharger due to popular demand. 


Check out the fantastic review of the X48R from Just The Driven below for more info on the bolt on modifications required to get the best out of this new hybrid turbo unit:


The options explained:

Actuator - The stock actuator is one of the few parts of the stock turbo setup that works well even at over 300bhp. That's not to say however that it can't be improved upon. Swapping it out for a Turbosmart will allow peak boost levels to be held further up into the rev range meaning you effectively widen the usable power curve, ultimately resulting in a faster car. 7psi tends to be better for road use due to its more progressive boost curve making it more predictable to drive, particularly in wet road conditions. 11psi is ideal for track use due to its agressive boost curve resulting in a more instant response, exactly what you want on the track! 
Pumaspeed Recommends: Turbosmart 7psi

Dump Valve - The stock plastic dump valve can often suffer from fatigue over time due to it's location on the side of a hot turbo, in worse case scenarios the valve can crack, causing a boost leak and ultimately a loss of power. An aftermarket dump valve removes this problem by replacing the affected parts, or the entire valve itself with a metal replacement, atmospheric or vent to atmosphere (VTA) dump valves are also available to increase turbo noise when you lift off the throttle. 
Pumaspeed Recommends: Forge Recirculation

Core Type - The majority of our X Series range of hybrid turbos are based around previous customer exchange turbos being sent back to us. The core is then completely stripped, reworked and built to hybrid spec including completely new internals, however the framework of the turbo (core), is reused from before to keep costs as low as possible. If however you'd like us to start with a brand new core, which has never been used before, we offer this service for an additional £50 surcharge.
Pumaspeed Recommends: Original Reworked Ford Core

Turbo Exchange - Due to the nature of keeping the cost down on the X Series turbo range, we rely on return customer stock turbo units, this enables us to sell the hybrid turbo on an exchange basis. This means you have three simple options to choose from. You can keep your stock turbo for a surcharge fee of £200. You can send your exchange stock turbo after you receive your hybrid turbo, meaning you pay the £200 surcharge up front which is then refunded on return of your turbo (Most Popular Option). Alternatively you can send us your stock turbo first and avoid paying the £200 surcharge altogether. 
Pumaspeed Recommends: Send my exchange turbo to Pumaspeed after

Please Note: Overseas customers you are liable for any customs charge that might be incurred through the process of returning your original turbo.
