Re: Turboing a TD42

Ah I'm with you now. Your talking about a complete off the shelf kit, ready to bolt on including the injector pump correct? Makes sense but also very expensive I'd imagine. Do you not think the usual "modified injector pump, 12mm plunger, and added boost compensator" is the way to go? If ...

Re: Turboing a TD42

That's good then. 550 should be safe as. Yea that will be the goal, it's got a full 3" exhaust, really good flow, but will that be big enough for that level? you will probably find 550c is a very small adjustment. also if the turbo is a bit big you actually need to poke some fuel in just to ge...

Re: Turboing a TD42

500-550 will be pre turbo. The egt sensor is in the manifold. As for desired power... End goal will be round 25ish with good intercooler and modded fuel pump etc. And now possibly an intake manifold :D pre turbo you should be fine around 600-700c. if your after 25lb boost plus fuel to match your lo...

Re: Turboing a TD42

fuel pressure adjustment is fairly relative to flow adjustment tweake, more pressure a pump would relate to more flow past cracked injector would it not? except the adjustment screw doesn't change injection pressure or flow. it only changes maximum injection amount which only applies at max throttle.

Re: Turboing a TD42

Cool thanks guys, definatly out of our league for sure. Will turn the pump up a bit to get her going a bit better but will keep it conservative. Aim for 15 psi and 500-550 degrees. Will add an intercooler later on and also probly change the turbo, it's quite slow to spool up. Internet reading sugge...

Re: Turboing a TD42

i think slidenyo is using the wrong terms. its not fuel pressure its fuel flow. bigger plunger allows you to squirt more volume of fuel in. adjusting the pump adjusts the volume of fuel injected not pressure. there is another section of the pump which generates low fuel pressure which is used to con...

Is that pretty much what is achieved by having someone modify the factory pump with bigger plunger and a boost compensator? Is it straight forward, could it be done at home? Or need special tools? As for fuel pressure, is that related to the modded pump or what we plan to do? How do you retard and ...

I've got what I believe is a 2l although it has the 2lt exhaust manifold and turbo on it my question is are the rods the same between the 2l and 2lt I've got a bent rod and a guy sent me a rod supposedly for a 2lt and it doesn't fit? first thing is do you have a 2l-1 or a 2l-2? http://www.downloada...

Re: Turboing a TD42

depends on how bad the turbo. egt's no more than 700c pre turbo, which is conservative but you may want to keep it fairly low if your not running a boost comp and turbo is unknown. try and find where he got the kit from. hopefully its already set at a reasonable boost level. there no point pushing b...

Re: Turboing a TD42

first thing is which version of the TD42 does he have. i'm a bit rusty but i think its the black top atmo motor that is the weaker one. generally keep boost under 15psi and intercool it. what turbo are you putting on? really the turbo needs to match the fueling. with the good kits its best to get th...

I disagree . The coolant when it is runing stops it from reaching a temp that will cook oil into sludge after shutdown .

Re: td42 turbo coolant flow

it does matter how its done.
the coolant when engine is running doesn't do bugger all, its when the engine stops that it matters. the thermo siphon has a few requirements for it to work correctly. i'm sure the patrol forums would have write ups on where to plumb it in.

best bet would be to use a electronically controlled auto. either fit the ecu or manualise it. that way you can fit the shifter where ever you like. as they are JATCO gearboxes it likely you can get a 2wd version or the rear of the 2wd version. quite possibly in another brand (eg toyota, mitsi etc) ...

Re: Diesel turbo compressor surge/"bark"

the problems comes from the turbo loosing its drive suddenly and theres still enough boost left in the system to force its way back.
often because turbo is being pushed to or well past its limits.

might want to try 3" from turbo to filter. possibly 4" filter

the other mad thought is what is your boost before the IC ? ie at the turbo.
