    Default Installing a Turbo on a 3L

    Came across a detailed article on the topic which I wanted to share. I have heard of this being done in Rawalpindi but with limited success, would be good to get feedback from anyone who has tried it.

    Suhaib bhai.. thats a really nice way to do.. but i think there a few things missing that can lead to lack of turboed performance... here is what i think abt it..





    1. the turbo engines come with IP's with boost compensators.. a diaphram that increases the fueling on boost... you might need to fit a 2LT pump onto a 3L.. i dont know if they are same The way the author did overfueling.. i think this wont work on the whole torque band with boost! the engine will tend to smoke!





    2. Turbo engines are known to have stronger internals.. many carry an additional ring on the pistons.. turbo engines are designed to handle the boost and overfuling.. this could be one reason of not getting the optimum performance of the engine.





    anybody who has done it.. an eyewitness account would help

    Akif, In light of my limited tech know how both points you raise appear to be valid. What I don't understand is that if we were to do this in Pakistan we would be slapping on an PKR 6-8k turbo on a PKR 90k engine. If in the remote worst case scenario of the engine being toasted, we are looking at a loss of PKR 100k or USD 1.25k. In the "civilied" world people are buying things like the 3L AXT turbo charger (http://www.axtturbo.com.au/Hi2L.html) which alone would probably cost as much and as far as I understand does not change the pump or the internals of the engine. In Pakistan, I am yet to come across a successful converted turbo diesel experiment in the long run, while this appears to be common place in other places particularly Australia it seems..... are we missing something here?

    Suhaib bhai agreed on your point.. We have the cheapest harware to experiment with We just need to get a little hands on with certain tools and techniques to get the max out of turboed diesel.

    You cant fry an engine by just adding turbo... By only boosting you are pushing more air... Its the overfueling that takes it to the limit... IP fuel adjustment must be done keeping a close watch on the EGT.. An EGT gauge is MUST for such experimentations... Coz only trial and error will help you with the optimum setting

    Akif, Please see the following article from the wild 4x4 country of Australia, as it deals with both issues discussed:

    ^^


    Quality if diesel bro.. Euro standard diesel has lot less sulphur content than what we get in Pakistan.


    Diesels in Europe run 2-3 times more than in pakistan before they need an overhaul... we need frequest oil changes because of this high sulphur content as oil gets contaminated !!
