We are now able to offer a comprehensive turbo conversion kit to suit all U1000 and U1300L models with both OM352 and OM366 engines.
Adding the turbo transforms the naturally aspirated lump from a plodder into a much more willing engine with increased torque from low revs as well as increased power.
Typically power and torque are increased by 20%. This can be further enhanced by injection upgrades.
We have carried out the conversion on over 50 Unimogs including several machines operating overseas in high temperatures such as South Africa and Australia so its credibility is very well proven.
This is a straightforward conversion using many genuine parts but we have developed our own air pipes so that the standard rocker cover can be re-used.
Complete kit from £2050+VAT - saving you over £500+VAT!
Please note the exhaust intermediate pipe is not included with this kit as there are many variations from one model to another. We can supply a suitable intermediate pipe for your Unimog at an added cost.
We recommend replacing the injectors with a set which have the correct spray pattern to match the turbo. A set of 6 injectors typically costs £360+VAT.
Depending on the condition and type of injection pump fitted it is possible to adjust the fuel delivery to match the turbo or for even better results we can recalibrate your own injection pump to optimise performance.
For optimum results we recommend that all power upgrades are carried out in our workshop as some symptoms can be misdiagnosed by inexperienced mechanics.
The procedure we follow includes:
-Test drive vehicle.
-Thorough check over of engine including turbo, air pipe work, fuel lines etc.
-Adjust valve clearances as necessary.
-Check and adjust timing.
-Remove & test injectors.
-External check of injection pump and throttle linkage.
-Compression test engine.
