Supporting Mods

4 Bar MAP Sensor

A 4 bar MAP sensor will be required to allow the ECU to monitor higher boost levels. The stock MAP sensor for a PD130 is 3 bar absolute (2 bar boost). 

Head Bolts

PD150 head bolts are advised to prevent head lift occurring from the higher boost levels this turbo will produce.


An intercooler upgrade is advised - stock intercoolers have plastic end tanks which are prone to leak. They also heat soak extremely quickly beyond stock power levels


This turbo is suitable with stock injectors and will see them run to their safe limit of ~230bhp.


Upgrading/de-restricting the exhaust helps reduce engine back pressure and promote better airflow. For example, larger diameter exhaust, and catalytic converter removal (for off road use) will improve turbo spool and prevent high back pressure occurring from the additional exhaust produced. 

Fitting Requirements

Connection Plug and Play Modification Required
Boost pipe Yes None
Exhaust downpipe Yes None

A remap is required immediately after fitting this turbo. We highly recommend fitting a boost gauge before installing the turbo so you are immediately able to monitor boost pressure.
