Not sure on fuel economy. What it does is it basically eliminates turbo lag as the turbo spools up much sooner. The engine pulls strong just about from idle.
Turbo is either Garrett or turbonetics (sp). Several guys on the board are running these now.

I will check on turbo make though later

Turbo is a turbonetics unit.

yes, lol, it looks like a nice kit. There are so many mixed reviews including mpg increase claims. I'm sure it makes the car more drive able but I'm curious about the power band and if it pulls more like a modern diesel

Mine's installed, but I am still a few months away from firing up the truck. I believe SafariHP just finished a build with a VNT kit installed.

Yes, I just sent safari HP another one to install. I can tell you that it basically eliminates any turbo lag at all. It pulls right from idle. And also pulls harder through rpm range

I suppose that any perceived mpg increase would come from being able to shift earlier in the rev range

I would think so since you don't need to rev up as much for power. The power ban starts way lower.

what is the individual unit cost of the turbo itself? given that the 2.8 TGV uses the same manifold gasket as the 300tdi, and that this entire conversion kit costs the same as a single 2.8 turbo replacement, it almost makes sense to switch a 2.8 over to this when a turbo replacement is necessary, and then have all LR parts and a cheaper turbo that is MUCH easier to source internationally.

the other outstanding question is if the 2.8 intake manifold will fit in this exhaust manifold well.

what parts does the kit come with exactly?

Its a simple drop in replacement. The 2 exhaust ports are on the turbo and you use the two horns for the other two ports. You don't have to reroute pipes all over like the 2.8 VNT does. This is stupid easy to put in and a great upgrade if you ask me.

Comes with Turbo and a new oil feed on the engine side I think. Thats it.

I am getting one once my 300tdi is up and running
