The Surbo5, a larger version of the original Surbo, was designed for larger engines, which come with big diameter air intakes. It was designed to be worked by the same throttle back pressure, but allows more air through due to a bigger cross section. The 5 stands for 5 fins, instead of the original's 4.

Audi 2009 S5 4.2 V8

FAQ: What's the difference between the Surbo and Surbo5? Which one fits my car?
Ans: The Surbo fits cars with 2.5" pipes up to 2.4 litres, such as the Toyota Camry, and even the 2.7 litre Toyota Fortuner. Some cars are designed with pipes 3 inches or above in diameter even though they are around 2 litres, such as 2 litre Hondas, which are expected to rev higher than other cars due to VTEC technology, and as such, the Surbo5 is fitted. For a Type R Civic manual 2.0, both the Surbo and Surbo5 were fitted and compared. According to the racer owner, the difference was that the Surbo was more sensitive, but the Surbo5 would offer greater potential due to a larger cross-sectional area.
