Dear all,

Not posted on here since I fitted an Airtec intercooler on my old Mondeo. Well, I've now got a shiny new hybrid turbo fitted to add to the mods on the car........

 

The turbo was built by Turbo Dynamics in Dorset. The spec is oversize compressor wheel (56mm / GT20), 360 degree thrust bearing and a step gap piston shaft. Fitting is straight forward but not a quick job. I had access to full workshop facilities and the car was on the ramp for the best part of 10 hours! Removing parts off a 15 year old car had to be done carefully!, and there is quite a few parts to remove to get access to the exhaust manifold bolts. The most problem/ time consuming piece was the EGR cooler but as my car is the vacuum operated type EGR I didn't need to fit the cooler back on and I re-worked the pipe work to reconnect the heater motor to thermostat for the coolant.

 

The car has a stronger pull on acceleration than before and holds boost much better at the top end of the rev range. It's not a massive jump over the original turbo but the car has much better drivability now.

 

Regards,

Steve.

A quick update.........now I've had time to get used to the new turbo, you can tell it makes a difference. The car responds quicker, feels faster and holds boost well. As my last post stated, the drivability of the car is so much better now.

Steve.
