1993 Isuzu Mu 2.8 turbo removal

Postby FarmerDan » Wed Jan 13, 2016 1:29 pm

hi iv got an Isuzu Mu 2.8T, the turbo is screaming and I know its fucked.

How easy is it to remove the turbo all together and just have a straight 2.8. I don't really need a turbo, I realise itl be gutless but its just a work hack so any advice?

I do have a replacement turbo to go in but which is easier replacing or removing???
As the turbo can cause more issues then not having one is this right?
cheers

If you have a spare to go in, just replace it, its going to be less work than converting it

as with any light duty diesel 4wd they are a bit of a cnut but if you get in a day or two before and crc everything your going to undo it will make it easier as with using the right tools
