300 TDi EVO kits, Group buy.

What the heck is that you ask?
All the parts required to upgrade your 300Tdi to the turbos system on the 2.8 Powerstroke.
Including Turbo, exhaust manifold, plumbing, piping and other goodies. You install it and have the exhaust shop connect the downpipe to your exhaust.

The way I understand it a 300 TDi without turbo lag is an amazing thing!

The cost of the kit will run around $2025 depending on the exchange rate (UK pounds). Not making any $$$ on this, I figured it was just too cool not to share.

My friend in Europe that will be arranging this will need cash up front as he is poor and owns a Land Rover...

What's turbo lag? I was hoping this was a US parts supplier source. Dang.

If I wasn't parking the 90 for the next few years, I'd so be all over this.

I'm still in the honeymoon phase of my Tdi relationship. Its so much better than the 2.25 I traded up from that I don't think I'll be looking for a sleeker model for quite some time.

But thanks for including us, sounds like a great mod.

You want two on your truck John?

These are standard product available in the Uk currently, I'm hoping that if we get enough to bring in a crateful we can save some on shipping and perhaps the duties..

Is this the kit that Allard sells? A lot cheaper than a 2.8 with similar numbers...

I have a similar turbo (VGT) on my Td5... pulls lovely, just like a "modern" turbo diesel engine. (although mine's chipped to 190bhp too which helps!)

but that turbo makes driving "nice" and smooth.

It's not the Allard kit but it is the same idea. This kit takes the parts directly from the 2.8 PS motor the way MWM designed it.

5% increase in horsepower - eh
15% increase in torque at 22% lower RPM. Ho Ho Ho.
$2,000 plus installation. Hmmmm

How soon do you need to know, Keith?

You can always increase fueling to get much higher power and torque numbers. The numbers above are with the turbo change by itself.

The real difference is the usable power band increase, which is a night and day difference in driveability. If you've ever driven a VGT, you'll know what I mean. No more turbo lag. No more revving it way up to make sure you don't shift it below the turbo boost point.

If I did my homeworks correctly, the torque would be more or less equal to a Td5 but...@1400 rpm.
Sounds more than enough for me.

Add an improved intercooler one day (some may already have one) and tune the pump as per Red90 suggestion, and there you go...
