Light Duty Diesel truck turbos...

I have searched on multiple forums for the answer to my question...but haven't found it.

Are there differences in the seals that makes diesel turbos less convenient to use? Something about sucking oil????

If so, what are these people doing to them to make them work?

Thanks,
Michael

I run a Holset from a Light duty Dodge truck.

Laid down 390RWHP and that was pegging the air meter at 5200 RPM.
If I could pull it clean to 6200 - 6500 it should do 420ish I think.

Did I mention that was with a 2.3 liter Turbo Gt Mustang?
Obviously I find nothing wrong with them. Just have to watch the ar ratio's. Do some reading on A/R ratio's to try to see what you would want for your motor.

Ya, I recently bought one off E-bay and am awaiting its arrival. I already have my intercooler mounted in front(it's from a Powerstroke). I'm looking forwards to swapping out the IHI for the HX35.

I used your site to guide me along with my swap. Thanks!

Do you have a write-up for the MAF conversion on your site?

I am running an HY35W. I keep thinking about twin HY35's on a 351

As far as the MAF conversion goes,I am running an EEC Tuner with PCMX. The rest simple wiring I found searching Turboford. and then I asked around for a file that matched the air meter.

I am trying to get the right air meter set up now. I bought a C&L 85mm , but I think I am going to buy a 90mm Lightning one also. I just think it will be easier to set up since alot more files exist for the 90mm.

I am hoping to dyno this weekend and "hoping" for over 420rwhp.

I got my HX35 this evening. It's a lot larger than my lil' IHI!!!

It's pretty funny. When I talk about my car to other 'car' people, they really have no idea what I/we have. Not many people comprehend what 18-25 psi can do for a 4 cylinder. I get those confused looks from people anytime I attempt to explain what motor I have.

It's even funnier when people notice the license plate on the back of my 91 Mustang: "NOT A V8"

This turbo is going to be great!

Have a good day!
Michael

Yeah, I just sold my 74 pinto with a 2.3T conversion. I also had a Holset HX35W. I went from a .63 A/R T3 to the holset. Man what a difference. My T3 weighed like 13 lbs, that holset was somewhere in the 30lb range. I think I bought that thing brand spanking new for 320 bucks!

Just curious, what rpm can you guys get full boost with the HX/HY35's on your 2.3's? I was scared I would need the nitrous to spool it, but I ended up getting full boost by 3800 rpm in 2nd gear on. Must be the divided turbine housing.

To answer the original question, you will have no problems running a "diesel" turbo on a gas engine.

I'm quickly getting everything gathered up for my swap. I don't see why it'll be more than a 'one day swap'. I should have this taken care of by the end of next week. I'll post back and let everybody know what I think.

Have a good day!
Michael

Update: I ran across this old thread and thought I'd update it.

If you have a 2.3 and have doubts about this swap...don't!

I've had the car running quite a few months now and absolutely love it. The HX35 is a night-day difference in power. While I do notice that it spools a little slower than the IHI, I no longer even notice it.

Have a good day!
Michael
