Do you want to brag about theoretical max. engine power, or do you want to overtake slow drivers in much faster cars than yours? As a bonus, you can politely explain to them that you just beat them with fucking 400+ Nm 150HP TDi.
Everybody wants max. power, but how many drives flat out in 4000 rpm? Or how many can utilize engine output properly? What matters most is transient response from engine after gear change because your daily driving is more like rally.
Having max. power is good fun on German Autobahns, but it is boring to drive 200km/h on never ending straight road. What upsets me more, than lack of engine power at long straights, is a slow acceleration from turns/gear shifting, as a result of High-G massages on sneaky alpine roads, or overtaking Kamikaze car users.
- +30% torque where it matters most – over 400Nm at 2000-2500 rpm. Imagine having 2800 rpm power output at 2000 rpm.
- Higher power output at 3000 to 4000 rpm – we moved 103kW from 4000 rpm down to 3000rpm, and even increased power output up to 110kW where it matters most.
- GT1646V is too small, and chokes already at 3500 rpm if pushed above factory calibration. We managed real power output from 3000 to 4000 rpm @ about 150HP.
Laugh and run away
Some guy from Internet forum suggested you larger turbo – it makes sense, bigger is better, right or is it? You run to the closest tuning garage and let them install a tractor turbocharger intended for larger TDi engines.
You wanna show your girlfriend why you wasted 3,000€ on upgrade, and drive her to shopping mall just to calm her down. You see that motherfucker with dunned car on the road, and you wanna show him how your car is now better.
If in doubt, FAQ out.
Downshift, pedal to the metal…and nothing happens. That big ass turbo slowly spools up, and provides less MAF at low revs than your stock turbo. Oh, that guy from dunning shop forget to tell you, but he fucked you well right?
