Re: ecodiesel turbo

Even a 2260 would give a little more grunt to the eco. However, and I'm sure others here can also attest, when you go bigger and bigger on single turbos your peak torque keeps shifting to the right further. Twins is the way to keep the best of both worlds.

Espos was supposed to do a WK2 eco but I haven't heard of any progress with it in months.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

yeah, they're using the 2260 in the first gen crd and producing almost 350hp without any fueling (injectors, pump)... that about all I need for power. or is it?
yeah, espos twin WILL work on our wk2's.

I think that article is wrong, the maserati has basically the same ecodiesel engine as the jeep, apparently has a dual ball bearing version of the same turbocharger. I saw some slides from the launch presentation, explained the differences.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

ok, so, talked with a tech at length yesterday. bought him a couple drinks at the local watering hole. he said that unfortunately you have to drop the engine to get the turbo out and a new one in. there is however a few options as far as turbos. I will be getting that info in time and will update.

If you don't have GDE's Hot Tune you should without question get it. The latest update in the Hot Tune will make your Ecodiesel perform like a completely different animal and I'm sure you would be very happy with its power and torque. The best add-on you could get for this Jeep period.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

already have the hot tune... its ok. nothing special. I have been doin the diesel thing for a long, long time. so, a 60 hp bump is minimal.
and yes, TIMMER, you were right. like in post #4. only the thing is I was given information from someone that has been in the diesel world for over 20 years, and he absolutely told me that by removing the manifold he thought it wouldn't be a problem; he also had his head under the hood of my jeep, he did get a look at it. so, then as I stated, I talked with a fca tech who said that as far as he knew, he hadn't heard of anyone removing the turbo without dropping the engine. Christian at cb engineering told me the same. so, there you have it, smarty pants...

I agree it is a great upgrade. personally, I think that the doms def protection plate is the most important thing to get for our rigs. I know that it probably saved my arse a few times already; being in Vermont, with all the snow and horrible road conditions...

The email I got from GDE stated their latest update has been stable for 3 going on 4 months now. When I said the GDE Tune makes this vehicle perform like a whole new animal, you have to consider it's a 3.0L diesel engine. The stock tune was crap. Turbo lag was not acceptable stock, and what GDE did to our LITTLE 3.0L and improved mpg is amazing. If you want more/need more you should be in a 3/4 or 1 Ton with a Cummins getting 20 mpg. I've owned both.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

^ well, again, have had em and I actually was getting close to 24 mpg w/ 500hp to the wheels (cummins, of course)... I'm getting old and don't like to jump up in a 3/4 or 1 ton. they're just starting to find mega power in these engines. talking 500hp and 1000tq! yup, that's right, and in a rig that weighs 5100lbs, vs. anything 3/4 ton and more will be 7000lbs. +, so, why wouldn't I want to get a little more power out of it? oh and an upgraded transmission is available as we speak.
