Many turbochargers fail because of a damaged engine! Here is an engine checklist to go through, to ensure that your turbo has a good start in life and to comply with warranty requirements.

  • Flush engine and pipes, use fresh oil and check pressure is correct (over 2.5bar)
    Pipes must be checked for blockages
  • Test cylinder compression
  • Make sure spark plugs are clean and dry
  • Air filter must be clean
  • Check ignition timing with manufacturers specifications
  • Fluid levels must be correct
  • Catalytic-converter, intercooler and exhaust system must be standard and clear of obstructions
  • Breather system must be checked for blockages
