Direct Fit Hybrid / Upgrade Service
For and instant and dramatic increase in performance you may consider replacing or upgrading your existing turbocharger with an UPGRADE/HYBRID unit built to your own specification.
At The Turbo Centre UK LTD we specialize in Direct Fit hybrid/upgrade turbo chargers giving our customers more power with zero refit issues.
REFIT, REMAP, JOB DONE!!!
What is a hybrid turbo?
A hybrid turbocharger is assembled from a mix of components, usually of the same make, but different frame sizes to create a unit for a specific purpose.
Want more power with less hassle? A direct fit hybrid could be the one for you!
Things to consider…
To increase the power / torque of your turbocharged vehicle, over and above a remap, you need to up the output potential of your turbocharger.
You could look to fit a larger turbo from another vehicle, but this isn’t ideal. Increased lag is usually a problem and getting it to fit could be time consuming and expensive.
Ball Bearing Turbo?
For big power we know ball bearing turbos are fantastic, and we do sell plenty of them! The ball bearing design is extremely resilient to high boost and the minimal drag/resistance within the bearing assembly means that a relatively large turbo can be used without the expected increase in lag. However, ball bearing turbos are not cheap, and again, fitting the unit will require serious mod’s and expense.
Also bear in mind your transmission, i.e. clutch, gearbox and drive shafts etc may well need upgrading to cope with big power.
Direct fit hybrid turbo?
Our direct fit hybrid units offer the potential for significant power gain with minimal to zero refit issues.
Usually we work within the confines of the standard unit but subject to your requirements we may use an alternative compressor cover, turbine housing etc.
State of the art CNC machines enable us to accurately re-profile compressor covers and turbine housings, as well as allowing us to machine back plates and bearing housings ready for the upgrade internals.
Durability is key
Below are some of the upgrades we use to give our hybrid turbos long term reliability
Billet (MSF) compressor wheels
T2/T3 360° thrust bearings
Up rated GT thrust and journal bearings – both with wider load bearing surface area
Staggered gap, total seal turbine end piston rings (particularly effective when running a low back pressure/DE-CAT exhaust system
How the process works
Once we’ve had a chat with regards to your vehicle, upgrade requirements, price etc… we would be looking to offer you and upgrade direct fit turbocharger on and exchange/ outright basic
However, it would be far better if we were to collect and rework your own turbocharger to hybrid spec.
This would allow us to inspect the unit and give you and or your mechanic a run down in its condition and potentially rework the unit to hybrid spec at a reduce cost.
We don’t take a “one size fits all” approach. In other words we wont try to talk you into having a particular unit just because we have one sat on the shelf.
Once we’ve established your specific turbo and your desired BHP, we’ll look to create the turbo you need!
Type your vehicle details into the quick contact section, click hybrid/upgrade box and we’ll get back to you ASAP with your upgrade options.
Or just give us a call!
