2.8D to 2.8TD

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, recently got myself a 4x4 single cab Hilux. 1991 2.8D

 

Just looking around at turbo kit's and turbo options. I know this is probably the 10000th thread about it Sorry.

 

I just would like to get any opinions on the improvement on fuel economy and power!

 

I've been reading and some people say the 2.4 surf manifold bolts on? (ct20 I think) Anyone confirm this? If so is it a great increase? It has 280ks on it and unknown of internal condition. The injector pump was rebuilt 1000kms before I brought it also

 

Thanks in advance.

If it has been looked after (body wise, running gear etc) then its fine to spend some money on a turbo kit for it, it shouldn't have a problem for another 200,000km.

You will see a nice power gain and better fuel eco out of it.Just don't go a over sized turbo with big boost.

What turbo kit do you recommend?

I've been looking at ct20's. What PSI would you put through it? As far as I know the engine has 280ks on it. No idea if it has ever been reco'd or anything.

It's a diesel, they love eBay turbos and cast manifolds!
