Turbo Thruster II features BD's NEW Turbine Diverter Valve
The Ford 2003-2007
6.0L Power Stroke stock variable geometry turbocharger (VGT)
has two deficiencies: variable vanes prone to sticking causing
poor response and lack of performance when adding electronic
modules. You can purchase one of our exchange stock units
that our turbo rebuild division has redesigned which does
eliminate most of the sticky vane situations (exchange units
on the shelf, ready to ship), but, what about when you want
the extra response after adding a performance module?
The old standard non-variable geometry turbochargers installed
on a 6.0L Power Stroke can it give extra the mid-range to
top end performance, but low engine rpm turbo-lag and high
altitude operation will not be satisfactory. We learned that
lesson all too well... But, unlike many others, we have learned
from this and we have designed new a new technology.
design TURBINE DIVERTER VALVE provides good low engine rpm
turbo response right through to peak operating rpm. With reliable
and rebuild able features.
Diverter Valve Operation:
the turbo exhaust gas drive pressures are reduced, resulting
in reduced turbo rpm and boost pressures. When throttle is
reapplied, turbo drive pressure has to be built up, and the
result is turbo lag or that 'fall on your face’
feeling. The turbine diverter valve directs exhaust gases
into one volute of the turbine housing to achieve enough drive
pressure to accelerate the turbo. By utilizing only one volute,
less volume of exhaust gas is required to build drive pressure
in the single volute passage of the turbine housing; therefore,
the turbine wheel assembly rpm increases quicker which reduces
turbo lag, faster spool up and acceleration. Once optimal
boost pressure is achieved, the second volute in the turbine
housing opens up for full power and less turbine restriction.
Dual volute turbine
housings allow the diverter valve to utilize just one or both
of the volutes to maintain turbo pressure at different engine
RPM's . The turbine diverter valve is controlled by boost
pressure for precise performance.
custom BorgWarner S300 turbocharger that has extended tip
technology, double-port adjustable waste gate and shrouded
housing, and, can support airflow requirements all the way
to 450 rear wheel horsepower, yet maintains drive ability
on the street. Designed as a direct, bolt-in replacement for
the stock turbo, the Turbo Thruster II kit includes everything
needed for a professional-quality installation.
