The factory turbocharger is pretty good for stock or lightly modified vehicles, but it has limitations that may be restrictive to other modifications done to an engine. However, for those customers who live and breathe diesel power, or plan to upgrade their electronics, fuel delivery, and exhaust systems in a quest for stump-pulling muscle, the next logical step is to add more boost/efficiency. With a PPE turbo installation kit, adding a midsize framed turbo with a T4 mount is simply a bolt-on installation job.
At the heart of this kit, is a sturdy cast PPE T4 Pedestal, which was specifically designed to support the weight of the turbocharger. The T4 Pedestal is made from the same high-sil moly material as our Race High Flow Exhaust Manifolds. Also included, is a 304 stainless steel, mandrel-bent, 3-inch diameter Down-Pipe that will connect the turbo to a stock exhaust system via supplied V-band clamps. The mounting hardware, gaskets, and hoses are also supplied.
Thanks to its T4 ready pedestal, this kit will mount any T4 based turbocharger. But for those of you who want it all, PPE offers a kit that comes with a high-quality Garrett GT40R turbocharger.
PPE and Garrett have worked together on many projects. Because of this successful partnership, we use Garrett turbochargers as the first choice in our GT40R Series Turbo Kit.
