Thanks for your reply Ned.
I realise its a straight swap, was just wondering what the spec of the Turbo Dynamics turbo is, whats changed or modified etc ?
I know the ECUs are the same for 150s and 170s, but the injectors, injection pump and turbo are different on 170 cars, ok the turbo will be changed, but wont the different injectors and higher pressure pump will mean 170 engines make more than 150 ones after the turbo is swapped ?
ECU's are actually different, I know this because Damien's map could not be loaded onto my car for this very reason..
the main difference with the Autolusso/TD hybrid is a bigger compressor wheel (56mm) there are some other bits as well ,would have to pull the receipt out..
the point is if AL do it all under one roof you have one point of contact from start to finish with the process, because my hybrid just predates this package I went my own way and things didn't go entirely smoothly,and it was more expensive.
In the end I went to Ned and it all came together nicely..
FYI I have the 150 car and the injectors and pump are not the limiting factor to big numbers ,the transmission (clutch ,flywheel) is likely to let go before the limit is reached on either engine..but if you were able to solve this then ultimately the 170 has the potential for more power..
I think the autolusso single mass flywheel and GTA clutch is good for 240 BHP and on balance the best option available, but I wouldn't want to push it much farther than that as the diesel power delivery is so different to the V6.
oh and you may also need 3 bar map sensor for the bigger numbers. mine is currently roughly 225 BHP and absolutely lovely!
I am sure Ned would agree and why he has suggested 240 as a limit, the engine can make more, but other components will struggle to handle it.
