4AGZE Supercharged to TurboCharged
Posted 27 March 2013 - 09:46 PM
Just got a sprinter with a 4AGZE Supercharged motor and was thinking should l keep it or remove the supercharger and turbo it instead. Looking to use it for street and track work so nothing crazy but still want it to move wanted to know A) if anyone has done this? is it worth it? and C) any tips on it

If your not handy enough to do it yourself, No.
My brother has done this conversion and it wasnt exactly cheap. If your car is running i would just drive it.
Just off the top of my head yoou would need to,
-Buy new manifold
-Make cooler pipes
-Run extra oil and water lines for turbo
Im tired thats all i can think of

We are doing the work ourselves and we have enough mates to do alot ourselves as well. Its a project car.
Was thinking of getting in running with supercharger and if need be switch over to turbo when needed.
Car arrives at my place sunday / monday and will know more then l guess.

If you're going to modify it and hope to make more power go turbo immediately. Keep your turbo size reasonable, T25/28, Subaru TD04 etc
Either way, the T50 gearbox needs some mechanical sympathy with boost.
Rex has a turbo manifold sitting around if you're interested
