FAQ's

I want to put a turbo on my non-turbocharged car, how much will it cost?

We DO NOT deal with turbocharger conversions.

Do I need to run in my turbo?

The replacement unit does not require a run-in period. However please ensure that the turbocharger installation instructions and oil priming instructions are followed correctly to prevent premature failure.

How do I maintain my turbocharger?

A good clean oil supply to the turbo is absolutely vital. Ensure that your vehicle is kept within its servicing intervals (preferably no longer than 8,000 miles to prolong the life span turbocharger). Change the oil and filter and the air filter when replacing your turbocharger and at every service.

Can I fit any turbo to my car?

No, even if a turbo appears to look the same, virtually all turbochargers are different internally, unless they are a direct substitute.

What is the boost pressure for my turbo?

This varies for every car. Seek advice from the manufacturer.

My actuator is not working on my turbo; can I use any other actuator?

No, each actuator has different opening pressure and rate.

I have oil in the inlet pipe – Is there a problem?

A small amount of oil in the inlet pipe is normal. This is drawn in from the engine’s crankcase breather system. High engine wear will increase the amount of oil found and will require further engine tests.
