Does anyone know where I can get the exhaust flange for the turbo downpipe, or what its dimensions are? Making a custom exhaust for a conversion project. Using CJAA engine with CR140 turbo. Thanks

I have not seen the specs for a KKK turbo from a 1983 Mercedes 300d. It is wastegate and was thinking of trying to use it on my 02 golf ALH. It is much bigger than the stock vnt15... Is there any advantages/disadvantages to using a wg turbo on my ALH.

ehhh, basically anything's an improvement over the stock ALH turbo
Ain't those k27s? 5.9 cummins guys seem to really like them
you'll need more injector to get it to light up

Hi guys, I just wonder, why nobody talks about bmw e39 525d 2052v turbo, to me it seems to fit much more easily on transverse tdi's than bigger brother from vag v6 2.5 tdi.
I want to put the gt2052v e39 m57 turbo in my ALH but can't find any info about it. Maybe you guys can help me with some info. Thanks and have a nice day!!!

Hi guys, anyone have specs for turbocharger fitted on range rover 2.7 tdi engines ? It's a KKK vnt turbo with electronic actuator, seems to have a similar manifold flange as bmw or transporter t4...I want to use it on a t4 van just not sure its worth it over a gtb turbo... Size wise its slightly larger than a bv43 but i never judge potency of a turbo by size alone...

Looks like a BV50, so comparable to a GTx20 frame size class. Based on the original engines' power outputs, I consider them highly unremarkable and if performance is what you're after, look for a turbo whose original application is producing north of 260 HP not just 190 in the Land Rover.

Thanks ! It was just an idea to maybe use it on the t4 transporter i have...at 1st glance it looks like it would bolt on the stock exhaust manifold...I need to build a tubular manifold in order to use a gtb2260vk on the van, not enough room unless i bring the turbo over the engine...

Hello
I am intrested of BMW F11 535xd 2012 313ps model turbocharger turbine and compressor diameters, basicly big one?.
and of course how much pumping air (airmap?) and how much can get with that horsepower if fuel have nough.
maximum boost pressure?
Greetings

Few pics of this one

Gtc1446vz from 2.0d Volvo V60 (Volvo 31312712 Garrett 790367)

Specs :

Stock vacuum operated
CW : 34,1mm inducer / 46mm exducer
The housing has a 3" inlet
Kind of anti surge groove (MWE ?)
No billet wheel but gtd1446vz has billet wheel (Volvo 31380131 Garrett 836265)

TW : 34,5mm exducer / 39mm inducer
A/R 0.74







I'll try this one in a compound setup and a friend of mine is planning to use one as a single into his 1.4 tdi

Yep it's quite the same unit in terms of design and technology. Only the CW is a bit different, but it should work just as great as yours

Overall dimensions are 26cm/10" height , 20cm/8" length , 20cm/8" width


Vband size is 77mm OD and 50mm ID

I guess I'd need to machine a custom Vband exhaust flange, right ? Did you use the Volvo oem Vband clamp and gasket ?

Hum, sorry I missed it in your thread.
So let's get one of these Vband kit, thanks for your help

I'll start a new thread soon, when I have my LP.
It should be a gt3067s (page 52 on this topic), I'm still bargaining :)

400bhp diesel only

Hi guys I'm new to posting here, I've recently started rebuilding my ASZ engine for a project car, the engine will be going into a 1.9tdi mk2 Octavia estate 4x4.

I'm hoping to be running 400bhp diesel only when it's up and running but struggling to find a turbo that'll work, was wondering what my options are, will be looking to run at least 3.4 bar single turbo setup.

So far I've found two capable turbos the gtb3576klnrv or the BW S356v, finding it hard to find a gtb3576 anywhere though and according to darkside the S356 would have to be top mounted which I'm not too keen on unless completely necessary. Any idea if the 3576 could be bottom mounted? Or any other turbos that could hold that pressure and be bottom mounted?

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks,
Adam.

The only thing that should force a top or bottom mount are clearances to the firewall, engine mount and steering rack. Not a big fan of spaghetti tubular headers myself... questionable performance benefits over an OE log-type manifold, and you should be able to adapt one for the flange of whichever turbo you choose. Different OE manifolds have different outlet flange positions - some hug closer to the engine block than others, which is what you want if maintaining a bottom mount is desirable. For accessibility (not to mention appearance), most people opt for the top mount, which also places the oil return drain at a more favourable and necessary position above the corresponding hole above the oil pan. I've even seen some builds with these big turbos straddling over the gearbox for space.

I prefer the GTB3576KLNRV myself, but they are harder to come by than the BW S356V, and the latter has many fans and users here. A single turbo setup with one of these big boys will benefit from the quicker spool thanks to the ball bearings in the former, and even better if you can adapt to directly use an electronic actuator off the N75 PWM signals without converting to a vacuum actuator.

Thanks for quick reply, my thoughts on the tubular manifold would be reduced throttle response and increased egt's due to the increased distance to travel, certainly no expert and haven't researched but that would be my thoughts on them.

Hoping to keep it looking as stock as possible even under the hood but if necessary I'll just have to bite the bullet and go for the top mount. Yeah I'm struggling to find a gtb3576klnrv it seems like they were only used on the hino ranger for Japanese market? :(

Any other options or would those be the only two?
Would the electronic actuator have much benefit over the vacuum setup?

got one of the gtb3576klnrv on the shelf here from a hino 7.7
it really feels like normal journal bearings to me, nowhere near how the shaft feels on all the other ball bearing turbos I've felt. Maybe mine's just junk?

This may be the wrong section to ask this, but does anyone know the torque spec for the copper crush nuts on the ea288 tdi gtd1449vz (putting the cr190 turbo on my cr150)?
