The've been trying to slow tuners down for years, including other car companies.
It doesnt work, they should just give up and start making it easier. Might even boost sales LOL

Also I wonder if it will be easier to access all these parts for mods/service.

Hmmmm.... This motor is looking more and more interesting as I read more about it.
It is indeed a BorgWarner Turbo...you can see their logo on the turbo housing right in that picture.

why does that manifold look like it is a 6 into 1 design? That wouldnt make sense if they are saying its a twin scroll.

One Downpipe, one turbo, one intake.
There's less to modify and less to purchase.

Don't forget only one wastegate, one DV, shielded exhaust manifold (less engine bay heat).

Downsides are Valvetronic and probably more anti-Tuning measures implemented in the DME software.
