Mito QV hybrid turbo

Has anyone had this done?

seems like my next logical step to do however not sure if its going to be worth the cost. already had a full ragazzon exhaust, air filter and remap done and got a reliable 194bhp with around 250lb torque

I see autolusso has done it for a 155tb and got very good results, however the QV has a different turbo which makes me unsure if alot can be done to mod the turbo.

I know its still just a 1.4 at the end of the day and not expecting massive gains , but an extra 10bhp + would be nice.

I plan on going to a santa pod event soonish, and showing up some cars with much bigger engines lol

any advice would be great

thanks

Savage amount of torque there. Would a TDO4 fit under there?

IMO, would be cheaper than a hybrid to be honest. Lads with 4EFTE engines from GT Turbos fit them and get about 240/50bhp from a 1.3 litre engine from the early 90's and it's cheap as generally the come off of scoobies and you can pick them up for handy money. The only thing you'd need would be a manifold made but I'm sure the wizard could do that for you he's a gent.

I wouldn't bother with a TD04, very old tech. I'd personally get a secondhand GT25, maybe a GT28 with the smallest AR trim to keep the spoolup time nice and quick.

Well, if you where going for that a GT25 is old too remember round the same time as a TDO4 brad bud. Get a GT28RS off a SR20DET and you'll have a dual ball bearing turbo good for circa 350bhp.

You still get duel ball bearing GT25 aswell. Granted they're older, but still far superior to a TD04 and much better suited to a small displacement engine.

I didn't realise they where too. Honestly TDO4's go on an old engine on Glanza's over here and they hit full boost at 3.5k revs which isn't bad due to the boost normally being 1.3bar.

That's quite late TBH, mine hits 1Bar @ 2.2k rpm and at 2.5k I'm running full boost (set at 1.29Bar)

Garrett GT2560 Ball Bearing Turbo,*Garrett Ball Bearing Turbos*|*Owen Developments Online Shop

My replacement turbo will most likely be a GT30 twin scroll, which is hard to find in this country for some odd reason.

Well, they would be hitting just under one bar of boost by 2.5k and then the full 1.3 by 3.5k so not so bad for a tiny engine remember it's only a 1.3 engine.

GT30 would massive no? Good for a lot of power I assume you'll be forging the engine to make that kinda turbo of any use.

Yes, engine is going to be a full steel forged bottom end inc crank. The aim is as close to 500bhp as possible. Thinking of adding a water/meth mix to the setup also.

You want to replace MGT1238Z turbo with GT25/28/30 family one?? Good luck, it will be hell laggy.

I wouldn't bother with anything bigger than BorgWagner 1750TBi turbo - Ricambio turbine alfa giulietta 10> 1.750 tbi US-55224276. Will be fine for 230+HP figures.

I was only making a suggestion. I wouldn't be too up on modern turbos and hybrids can be mental money and the above ones I've mentioned can be picked up for small money and cheap power imo.

Nice, water/meth is hard enough to plumb and set up but sounds like it'll be a beast.

No idea what turbo is in the car, was just comparing to a td04 if there's a better choice I'd say go for it

And since my engine is from a grale I decided to try and go AWD in the process better then 500 slapped to just the front wheels.

Don't think that 350 EUR is much for 1750tbi turbo

They that cheap? Turbos over this side of the world are mental money round 1k easily for a standard turbo. For that money I'd be going that route too.
