Before starting to mount a turbo on the vehicle, a number of checkings are required to achieve that the operation of the turbo is optimal from the outset.
- On the first place we must always ensure that the turbo has a good lubrication, especially the turbos with variable geometry. Whenever possible, it is recommended a light grease to ensure a good lubrication. This way we will avoid the seizing of the axis as it is an element that suffers very high run speeds.
- Always check the conditions of the intake and the air filter. It is highly recommended to replace the air filter before installing a new turbo in the vehicle. An usual breakdown in the turbo is the damage on the compressor or the turbine wheel a cause of the inlet of particles entering through the suction conduit. This dirt that apparently does not affect the system may actually cause serious damage.
