KRATOS systems are rated based on supported horsepower figures which is what we publish as far as specifications are concerned. The majority of all other information is kept proprietary as it's a valuable part our Engineering and R&D Process.

For manufacturers of universal turbochargers this information isn't kept proprietary, as compressor maps are an extremely important piece of data that needs to be published for their customers to decipher which turbocharger best fits their application and horsepower goals. That data does serve as a great tool, but can sometimes be a bit confusing for many customers that aren't really familiar with how to properly read a compressor map. As a manufacturer of vehicle specific turbo systems, KRATOS Engineers have done all the work for you and designed a compressor and turbine wheel combination based on engine VE data as well as flow characteristics required to maximize that VE as per the vehicle application.
