Post by rutter123 »

i suspect the turbo on the tzd is on its way out as oil consumption is higher than usual and i can feel some light play on the turbine shaft, i guess sourcing a replacement wont be too hard, but has anyone ever fitted a different turbo onto a tzd and what were the results?

Good question, especially as the turbo on mine seems to be (ahem) shafted.

A bud fitted a Pug 405 manifold and turbo on his BX to get a few more ergs. Though as Jaba pointed out to me the same might have been achieved by adjustments. I really would not know. Turbos are still a bit magic to my experience of DIY. However it suggests the scrappy might offer a cheap alternative. There are several in my local if it seems a good idea to grab a few. Can ask Rodney a price if there is interest.

yes it seems there are some changes that can be made, but this is beyond my mech knowledge, i believe that some adjustments to boost pressure and the waste gate can be made, sourcing a replacement is not a prob from a local scrappy there seem to be plentiful supply of this turbo even new one @ £150. also my tzd is running a lucas pump which i have heard is not great for fuel adjustments etc,

They either use Garrett or KKK they are interchangeable as long as you get the oil feed and return pipes from the donor engine, anything up to a S2 Xantia or 406 can donate suitable.
I found the Garrett a little easier to tweak :D
I have some tuning instructions for Bosch and Lucas pumps somewhere too if anyone needs them.

any info on adjustment for fuel pumps or any tips on changing turbo settings would be good.
