Direct replacement high performance hybrid turbo for Land Rover Discovery Td5 & Defender Td5.
Includes boost control box to to correct ECU overboost faults.
PLEASE NOTE: This price is based on an exchange for your old turbo –
You will need to either ship your original to us in advance, or alternatively we offer a surcharge option of £400 refunded on receipt of your replacement unit.
The Hybrid turbo is a great way of improving drive-ability and power. This replacement turbo is constructed with a lighter weight, CNC billet compressor with revised geometry and exhaust turbine help to reduce “lag”.
The hybrid is constructed with a stronger 360 degree thrust bearing, allowing higher speeds and thus deal with higher boost pressures safely.
The compressor housing is machined to accept the larger 2058 compressor instead of standard 2052, meaning greater flow capacity.
The compressor is also anodised to increase durability.
Power is improved throughout the rev range but particularly in mid-range and top end, however this is greatly depending on mapping.
The main difference between the hybrid and VGT is the VGT technically has the ability to provide a wider spread of power when set up correctly, but as with any tuning modification, it does need everything to be working 100% to achieve the best results.
The hybrid can be installed in a matter of hours and we strongly recommend an uprated intercooler is installed prior to fitting an uprated turbo and we advise a fresh oil and filter is fitted
Turbo design is always a compromise; engines need a small turbo for fast spool-up and improved throttle response (reduced turbo-lag) but the small compressor size does not allow enough flow for anything beyond mid-range revs. So, a larger turbo is required for increased flow in the mid-range and higher revs.
The Hybrid turbo is supplied complete with all gaskets required to complete the installation and is a direct replacement for the original unit.
The following must be considered prior to installing an after-market Hybrid Turbo charger –
There are many factors which can have a bearing on maximum performance such as air flow meter, fuel pump, regulator, injectors, timing etc etc…
EXCHANGE SURCHARGE – The original unit needs to be in good working order so please make sure it is packed well when you ship it to us. If it is not in good working order or it has been damaged in transit, then it is unlikely to be accepted and the surcharge will be payable.
Your ECU would require mapping to get the absolute best results from any turbo upgrade, but an improvement can be expected using standard or existing mapping.
The aftermarket turbo charger must be installed by a professional mechanic.
Please note – any restriction to the air intake on performance turbos will invalidate warranty. This can include some raised air intakes.
Correctly sized exhaust system – either restrictive or too little back pressure can cause problems with uprated turbos and can invalidate warranty.
Please also see our listing for improved flow exhaust manifolds and exhaust components.
Note that the turbo is likely to sound different to standard units. CR Turbos offer a limited warranty of 3 months. Full terms available on request.
