Refined over many years and proven to deliver dependable performance, the Alive Td5 Hybrid Turbo is a great value upgrade to take your engines performance to the next level!
Built from a brand new Garrett core unit for absolute reliability, the housings are machined to accept our reworked internals and then carefully assembled and dynamically balanced prior to dispatch.
Recommended supporting modifications are an uprated intercooler, High flow exhaust system, ITG Air Filter, Silicone reinforced turbo intake hose, and a 4 bar MAP sensor. Your vehicle may also need an uprated clutch assembly too, depending on its history.
We do not recommend the use of a regular snorkel / raised air intake as these are almost always too restrictive to provide the air flow required. The Discovery turbo boost modulator is required for us to accurately control turbo pressure within the mapping.
This turbo has the potential to push the Td5 engine way beyond its original design spec and it is essential that the vehicle this is to be fitted to is well maintained and in good overall condition. It is required that the engine be given an oil and filter change at the same time as installation, which is normal practice when installing a new turbo on any car.
Your Engine Control Unit will need to be carefully calibrated to get the best out of this hybrid turbo and we highly recommend this is performed at Alive HQ on our dyno. We appreciate this may not be practical for many and so if you have an alternative means to download/upload map files, with such as with a Nanocom, then we can work with this and guide you to ensure a perfect setup. Alternatively, you can send your ECU to Alive HQ, along with full details of all vehicle modifications and we will set your ECU up in-house for a plug & play installation.
Please note remap files will need to be purchased separately.
