Upgrades For 1.6 Tdci Engine

21 March 2013 - 02:55 AM

I have 1.6 tdci 90hp engine


we are going to talk here what we really need for a good upgrade for this engine to reach 150hp as a goal.


first question: should I put less HP as the goal or the engine can take?



I have no intention to pass the 150hp so 57mm(2-1/4") internal diameter is more than ok? or sould I go for 64mm(2-1/2")? (think in the weight as well)


are the 110hp injectors really the same or are they different? to do 150hp are they ok?

do I need another fuel pump? or common rail pump?


if I compare the size of the IC with ones on ebay this one should be ok for 150hp. or not? I know the material is probably different but those can do until 350hp so...


the Turbo in the 110hp is the GT1544v so is a VGT what is an advantage. If I was going to use the same I would be using the turbo on the limit what is a big risk. so I was thinking that I could use the GT1548v. The problem is because my car don't come with VGT I would have to do some changes. so I'm open to suggestions :)


I wil need to put a EBC to help the turbo


Is the De-cat the same that you use for petrol or is different size? because I only find for Petrol on ebay.


last thing if anyone have prices for these upgrades I would be happy if mention. 


P.S.- allways think Bigger size = more weight



Upgrades For 1.6 Tdci

18 March 2013 - 02:05 PM



I just bought a Focus 1.6 tdci 90hp and now I'm already thinking what upgrades in the performance can I do with this car  :)


I have been thinking in change the turbo for an GT1548v or the GT1549v but another options are welcome. for now the line I will try to reach is 150hp


as far as I know the car don't come with DPF so is one less thing to take out


what else can I do?



I'm thinking in change the air filter for a k&n or something similar but in the K&N we have just the filter and that filter with K&N box, what I don't know if the box is worth. (is quite expensive)

I will take off the EGR ASAP


any ideas? thanks
