Hi

I have a stock standard 4.2 Diesel trayback GQ and was wanting to turbo it in the near future. Have got various prices of kits starting from $3100 - $3900 - all different models and brands ie Garrett, Schweitzer etc. Just wanting to have a set up of the spooling coming in at approx 1500rpm and pushing on through mid to highs.

Also does anyone advise to get a new set of injectors when getting the turbo fitted?

I am aware of the extra associated costs of the change of exhaust system whether it be the 21/2" or 3"inch running of the provided 3" dump.

Thoughts? Comments? Advice?

I am very happy with the DTS, power and economy. Depends how many kilometers your engine has done regarding injectors and the usual practice is exchange with reco's. A pre installation dyno will tell you how your injectors are.
See if you can find the post by 'Toughdiesels' on turbo testing.

X2 on the DTS system.

If you haven't had your injectors serviced recently, get them reconditioned as part of the job.

3" system makes a real difference.

Another very happy DTS customer. When I was looking around before making my decision I found the DTS had the best low rpm torque of any system I found.

Ive got the safari turbo kit n fmic very happy with the set up plus ive got hiflow injectors... What a differnce that makes, great for towing n crusing around, but if u are wanting lots power n noise go with the denco kit with fmic a mate has that on his 89gq n it fly's with heaps of totque.... Also go with a straight tru 3' system

Does sound nice but no it is NOT a good power maker.
VERY good for a basic upgrade but that's it.
150+ RWkW with a DTS, over a 1000+ RPM range.
Let's see you do that reliably with a Schwitzer S2A.

hmm not sure where your getting info from the denco tubo will make heps of power if you get rid of the denco dump pipe and put a mandrel in better flow dont get turbo surge under higher boost keeps on boost for longer higher revs

How many kms on the motor,was thinking of updating my ancient turbo with got about 340,000 on the motor.
Is it still safe to do so?

Yes, as long as the engine is in good condition and you keep boost pressures at sensible levels, should be all good.

hey mate , where can you get a dump pipe fabricated for the denco kit? im having a bit of trouble because the turbo is mounted a long way back and the existing dump pipe is very close the the firewall.

I've got the turbo glide high mount GT2860BB kit, made a huge difference all round!
I still have to get my injectors sorted out though.
