Title: Turbo for BMW 524td
Post by: colinx on June 07, 2021, 05:14:40 pm

In appendix a photo of the plate of the turbo of the bmw 524td. I think this is the equivalent of a TB0324 or td04-11b?

The turbo is worn out, the previous owner rode a water-cooled TD04HL-15T. It works but I wonder if this turbo is suitable for my engine? What is your opinion?

I find the turbo response slow. Below 2000rpm there is no pressure. The pressure can start only from 2000tr to 2200tr and is fine from 2500tr.
The pressure is set to 0.8bar and later I would like to go up to 1.1bar with an intercooler.

Thank you for your reply.
