I believe it's a Garrett VGT 2056 with variable turbine geometry.

There is not going to be a plug and play replacement for the turbo. Due to the location, swapping turbos will pretty much require pulling the engine to get to it. Also, the turbo is situated in such a place that everything is formed around it. A larger turbo will not fit in the same cavity. To go any bigger than factory will require custom fab work to change the piping location.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

I wonder if a little machining and a larger impeller could work for some gains

Re: ecodiesel turbo

you can get the turbo out without removing the engine. the question is will it be able to house something like a gt2860, thats the question.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

This thread may be worth a read, no turbo replacement, but lots of other tweaks for 'a lil extra power'......

That's an interesting thread. Looking at the photos on Banks website that intake looks quite painful to install but would be nice. I ran water/meth injection in my last 4.2TD patrol for around 5 years and never had an issue with it. Had a 46 litre tank under the tray so didn't have to fill it often.

I think just getting rid of the DPF and running full 3" turbo back to 2.5" after y piece, solid intake pipe, reverse the flow path of the inter cooler piping and fit a nice big intercooler. Remap the ECU and I think the Ecodiesel will run pretty good.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

the intake will give you no significant power gains. that is according to the guys at GDE and a few other diesel mechanics, one of them being my son. already have the hot tune and a drop in filter. waiting for my cb engineering intercooler and pipes. there is a couple of turbo swaps for the 2010 and earlier crd's. no tune or anything needed to run these, by the way. as far as a turbo replacement, its only a matter of time. I believe that espos in NY, has a unit. he is the one that developed the first twin turbo ecodiesel and has a kit for the ram and jeep. power rating 440hp & 600+tq.
will be updating this soon, I promise you. this is my mission!

Sounds good bermie. Keep us posted. I am very interested.

The intake won't give power gains by itself but with other mods and/or a custom tune it will. Surely there would be less turbulence and more laminar flow to each intake port without the swirl motor and flapper valves. This would help improve EGT's to each cylinder in my opinion. But at this stage pushing this motor seems to be a bit of a guess as from what I have read no one is really pushing it's boundaries yet. Diesels love as much air as possible so anything that opens up the intake is an improvement I believe.

Re: ecodiesel turbo

I agree, but it is truly a small piece of the puzzle. the guy at espos running twins, seems to be running afe intercooler pipes, but no intercooler (I believe) and has no modified intake. so, I think you would have to really have to be putting some big fuel (injectors) and turbo. I used an intake manifold from ats for my cummins among a lot of other things and I think it was probably overkill since I wasn't running nitrous or water/meth.
this will be a fun process.
