Welcome! Sweet Jeep!
My turbo has some impeller damage, so eventually I'll have to replace it. What are the benefits of the one you listed? Is it fairly easy to adapt? Just need to add a water line, right?
Thanks! Benefits are more power with basically same spool. Yes, if you get the euro pedestal or tdanzig's adapter it will bolt on with the exception of the water lines.
Love that interior. Your last name is pretty cool, I bet you get called Whitebread more than Tim. Also, Welcome
Me too! I looked for over 8 months for an overland crd with the brown/black interior. Hahahah, yes, on a daily basis. Wheatbread is usually #2.
Well HELLO fellow Michigan CRD owner!
Have you check out CB Engineering? He is a forum member from Iowa I believe. Here
is is website.
If you can do your own work that's pretty sweet! I can't so I rely on others with that experience to help support them with my $$$.
I would like to see someone come up with a similar CAI like the volant to use. I like Omelets snorkel build that attached to the volant, since I have Silver Lake dunes near me, it would be nice to try and minimize any sand ingestion I can with a snorkel and and a prefilter to help block some of that. I have a buddy with the Hemi and may purchase the volant to see if I can get it to work, and if not, sell it to him.
GDE and tires are my goals for the spring, and if possible a OME lift. Good luck and have fun!
If you ever want to get together to do some DNR trails up north between Cadillac and Kalkaska let me know. I want to check that trail system out this summer!
Yup, I did a ton of reading before hand and have worked on few CRD jeeps so I'm fairly well versed in them. I'll be picking up his egr delete plates as I've found in the past for one time use/one off parts, it's not worth my time making them if someone else already does for a reasonable price.
Glad to have you on board! I believe the issue with max tuning so far is the MAP sensor isn't able to read high enough. I think stock is 1.6bar. That I'm thinking might be your biggest woe.
Christian's made some good progress with his two CRD's. Here's a couple links to his stuff. He hasn't been around in a few months now, just busy with life I hope.
Good luck and I'll be looking forward to your progress! This platform definitely has alot of room for power improvments and i'm excited to see what you can manage to get out of it.
Thanks! The map sensor linearization can't be changed in the ecu? I routinely swap the factory 2.5 bar sensors out for 4 or 5 bar ones on the VW TDI's I specialize in. My tuner just changes the scaling in the ecu and that's it.
I've seen his pro-lite build, I certainly won't be going that far! He does very nice work though!
I appreciate the offer, will probably take you up on either an atv or my 87 chevy with a 4-53T detroit. The jeep is my bad weather/atv hauler. It's still too new and nice to me so I can't scratch it up just yet!
I can't wait to see what this thing does with the turbo/IC/exhaust. If it ends up with similar power/weight ratio as my 97 passat wagon TDI, I'll be really happy. Before you laugh too hard at that sentence, here's my wagon's engine bay;
compound turbo 2.0L TDI, awd, 6 spd manual, 58psi boost, 291whp/496wtq.
