Best Turbo for power...

Hi guys

I have a 2.4 Tdci and am looking to get more power from her. Top speed is about 75mph with pedal to the floor. I need a little more "umf" any suggestions?
Thank you!

How about going to a full width intercooler and a 1.2 Transfer Case. This is what I've done and I get up to 85 MPH on level ground.

The first thing is to get a new map, then intercooler and map. You should not need a bigger turbo.

Plug and play tuner

Turbo should be fine.

I've got a new never used Ashcroft 1.2 gear set as well. Nice improvement and plenty documentation to support it.

A tdci should have a 1.2 with the 6 speed.

Get that LS1 conversion and sell me your Tdci set up at a deep discount. I don't need to go over 75.

Those look familiar. I got this set up from Randy and it is amazing! I would dare say my truck is "fast". I still have to finish the seals and bearings on my 1.2 transfer case, but think it will be the icing on the cake.

Give Randy a call. He is a great guy, his prices are fair and somehow he can get things thru the Allisport anti-sales dept.

Feel free to pm if you want any more details.

I just picked up a new intercooler from randy as well.
Very good price and good guy.

I also drive a 130.
I haven't installed the intercooler yet but will let you know what I think in a week or two 👍

Call or email randy.

They have a speed limiter at 82, your speedo is probably is off.

You should find someone overseas to remove your limiter.
