Upgrades and high flowing (modifications)

ETS also offers performance upgrades for Nissan Patrol, GU, GQ, TD42

Save fuel and gain approximately 25-30 per cent in your power output when you choose a performance upgrade.

 

High flowing

High flowing is the fitting of a larger compressor or turbine wheel to a turbocharger to improve its physical flow capabilities. The larger compressor wheel increases the amount of air entering the cylinder, providing more oxygen for the fuel to burn and resulting in an increased power output by the engine.

This means a high flowed turbocharger is capable of producing more power and handling a greater amount of boost with increased reliability.

There are a few benefits to a ball bearing high flow turbo, not in the least being they are known to spool up quicker and demonstrate better overall performance.

High flowed turbochargers are also incredibly cost effective. Maintaining factory appearance as all alterations are internal the high flowed turbochargers can be fitted without any further modifications required. This is due to the fact the compressor and turbine housings are all re-used which means the turbocharger can be bolted directly back into place. The factory intercooler, air in-take piping and all oil fittings and water lines are also re-used.

In the case of high flowed ball bearing turbochargers extra fittings may be required to be adapted to the vehicle for water and oil supply.

Note* Some compressor or turbine housings only allow for a small increase in wheel diameter, due to their physical size or shape. When the turbocharger is stripped, cleaned and ready for assessment we can determine the right combination for your requirements.

Should the wrong compressor wheel be fitted the turbocharger can surge violently, resulting in a premature failure of the turbocharger and damage to the vehicle. An incorrect turbine wheel may make the turbocharger lag or result in power which is too high for the rev range.

ETS has the knowledge and expertise to perform the precise measurements and machining involved in this process and assess the appropriate combinations and clearances.

 

Understanding a  Turbocharger:

All engines are dependant on air and fuel to operate, the ratio of these elements controls the power output by the engine. It stands to reason that if you were to increase the amount of air available to the engine it would result in an increase in power.

A turbocharger works to achieve this by converting the energy contained in your exhaust stream, compressing it to a higher pressure before passing it into the engine via inlet valves, resulting in more power.

This process works to increase engine efficiency and power as it takes the exhaust gases, which would otherwise go to waste, and forces them into the combustion chamber.

The result is a vehicle with a potential increased power output of up to 30 per cent which burns fuel more efficiently and has increased power capacity compared to that of a normally aspirated engine, all without altering the operating characteristics of the engine.

 

Turbocharger breakdown:

Essentially a turbocharger is a turbine-driven force which is driven by the engine’s waste exhaust gases. The engine’s power output is controlled by flow, pressure and temperature.

A turbocharger consists of a compressor and a turbine, connected by a common shaft. The bearing system supports the turbine shaft whilst the turbine, driven by the compressed air which supplies the energy for the compressor.

 

The turbine:

The turbine wheel converts heat and pressure into a rotational force. As the wheel rotates it turns the turbine shaft, in turn spinning the compressor wheel.

The turbine wheel is a critical component of the turbocharger. Too small a turbine wheel introduces the possibility of excessive back pressure, potentially choking the engine and resulting in a loss of power. Too large a wheel can be just as damaging, increasing lag and interfering with the boost and overall engine productivity.

 

The compressor:

The compressor takes air at ambient temperatures and compresses it before funneling it towards the throttle body.

The compressor wheel is connected to the turbine wheel via the turbine shaft and as a result the wheel rotates at the same RPM as the turbine wheel, accelerating with the engine and turbine wheel.

This action provides the ‘boost’ for the engine.

 

Bearing system:

Bearings are the most commonly replaced part of the turbocharger. These can start to wear for a variety of reasons, a few being oil condition, axial loads or even shaft movement.

The wear and tear of bearings is in part due to the turbine shaft operating in speeds in excess of 100 000 rpm.

Many turbocharger repairers and manufacturers will offer upgraded bearing systems, such as the ball-bearing units which eliminate the thrust bearing in standard turbocharger systems. The result is a turbo which can withstand up to 50 times the thrust load capacity of a traditional turbo.  They can also work to reduce drag and increase the general longevity of a turbocharger.

 

Blow off valve:

The blow off valve, mounted on the compressor side of the turbocharger relieves pressure as it builds up, blowing off excess boost pressure which becomes trapped in the system when the throttle blade shuts.

 

Wastegate:

Turbochargers rely on wastegates to control boost and overall engine power. This is achieved through ‘bleeding off’ exhaust gas before it reaches the inlet of the turbine housing.

A faulty wastegate would result in excessive boost, leading the turbine wheel to reach choke point and resulting in a couple of melted pistons or possibly even a hole in the block.

Though design differs every wastegate features an inlet and outlet port through which gas enters. A valve regulates the air flow, a diaphragm actuator controls when the valve opens and closes.

As boost pressure rises the pressure forces the spring assembly lifts the valve, diverting exhaust gas from the turbine and regulating the turbine’s speed.

Wastegates operate on different springs which are swapped according to target boost levels.
