Detroit Diesel performance turbo
With 31 years of experience working with turbochargers, we can help you select the best turbo for your engine. If most of you trucking is on level ground or rolling short hills, it is best to have a larger turbine housing to minimize the backpressure. If the majority of your trucking is in the city with a lot of stop and go driving, than a slightly smaller turbine housing is preferred. The smaller housing is good for quick turbo response and instant boost. However, on the open road, the backpressure may be too high. So, increasing turbo boost alone will not result in increased horsepower. Yes, the engine may run cooler so long as the exhaust restriction is not increased. To gain more horsepower and torque you must increase the fuel delivery to the engine. In turn, the turbo will spin faster and the turbo boost will increase but the increase in boost is a result of the fuel, which makes more power. This power properly used will result in better fuel mileage. This is why the Pittsburgh Power Performance Computers work so well: They increase the fuel delivery to the engine. Please keep in mind that when more fuel is injected into the combustion chamber, the volume of exhaust also increases. These days engine manufacturers are using very small waste gated turbine housings on the turbocharger which are very restrictive. Our turbo kits provide more turbo boost and less backpressure for better performance and fuel economy and lowered exhaust gas temperatures. Custom polished compressor housing, polished compressor wheel and exhaust housing combinations are available. Please call for pricing and availability for special applications.Just as a reminder to anyone who is planning on buying a new turbocharger soon, when you purchase a new turbocharger and take it out of the box the V-bands that hold the compressor and turbine housings to the bearing housing are NOT torqued. YOU MUST tighten the clamps. The reason they are NOT torqued is because the bearing housing needs to be aligned with the oil feed line and the oil drain line, then you must align the compressor housing with the outlet elbow going to the charge air cooler and the turbine housing with the exhaust manifold. So it is YOUR responsibility to tighten the 2 clamps, if they come loose, the turbo is junk. Now don't allow this procedure to stop you from installing your turbocharger, it is much easier than is sounds.
