PSA 1.6 GT1544V hybrid turbo for 175+ BHP 753420 upgrade
A really popular engine used in many applications and with surprising tuning potentinal - the 1.6 TDCi / HDi used by Ford, Peugeot, Citroen, Mini, Volvo, Mazda can be turned up to over double the output what it left the factory with. Either the 90 (with the enablement of the VNT control in the ECU) or the 110 bhp versions will accept this turbo plug n play and will safely run 175 bhp. When pushed excessively hard this spec has achieved over 195 bhp but we do not endorse that.
We start with a brand new premier quality Melett turbocharger, equipped with a range of performance enhancements before we even get to work. Upgraded solid VNT vanes, upgraded thick diameter shaft and journal bearing, upgraded large pad 360° thrust kit. We then install the popular 7 blade MFS billet 52mm compressor wheel and CNC machine the compressor housing and backplate, we install a motorsport spec stagger gap total seal turbine side piston ring seal, we cut back (or clipped blades) the turbine wheel to allow for better top end breathing, high speed VSR balance the unit and flow calibrate it for optimum response. A really fantastic result for such a simple install.
