Fitment of an upgraded turbo will provide even more power & torque for your diesel, once tuned to suit. There are several options available for turbocharger upgrades & here at UDT we have done extensive research & development on this topic. Quite simply, the turbochargers that we use & recommend not only provide fantastic increases in power & torque once tuned by us to suit, they also spool quicker (less lag) & hold boost for longer, amongst other advantages. Most of our kits are a direct fit bolt-on so they retain the standard exhaust manifold! However, to gain the full potential of an upgraded turbocharger, other supporting modifications such as an upgraded exhaust system, upgraded intercooler & an upgraded intake are a must.
With some engines, the standard turbo will suffice, but the standard turbo actuator prevents the engine from reaching its full potential when tuned. Therefore, utilising an upgraded actuator is a must for these applications. These are more efficient & provide a more stable & more consistent boost curve, contributing to a better result in power & torque, particularly in the mid-range.
