JB / Eclipse Turbo FAQ
Yes, 12 Months / 20 000 km warranty.
You will only need to connect the turbo to the exhaust, and tune.
It depends on the condition of the clutch. The torque is very smooth and in most cases, from past experience, the factory clutch is usually fine.
This will depend on the injector’s pump tune before and after turbo installation, as well other parts used that can influence fuel economy. Fuel economy is usually the same or better as you will use less throttle position now that the engine is making more torque.
This is very hard to answer. There is no real evidence to suggest either way. If your 1HZ engine already has a underlying problem, then turbocharging will just make this problem more prevalent. Turbocharged 1HZ engines when done correctly can last just as long as a non turbocharged engine. Tuning will also influence this factor.
No, tuning will require specialised equipment and needs to be completed by a experienced tuner. Tuned to 20/22:1 AFR (Air Fuel Ratio)
Very reliable. Industry-standard for balancing is 1.0g, JBTurbo turbocharger is balanced down to 0.2g, 5 times better than the industry standard. And manufactured from high-quality parts.
Yes, it is very well advised to run a 3″ flowing exhaust with your 4.2 litre turbo diesel engine.
This is not required. A journal bearing’s design uses a large flow of oil. The oil temperature is around 100°C, this will keep the bearing cool and turbocharger’s life long. They do come with the water ports if you choose to add water cooling.
No, by twisting the compressor cover it can dislodge the C clip holding it in place. If the compressor cover becomes free it will cause a turbocharger failure.
Yes, a 1hz engine with decent kilometres is actually perfect for turbocharging, as the rings and compression are now best suited to a turbocharger. But if the engine, pump or injectors are very warn out, performance will not be as good.
It is optional but not 100% required. The engine will only make power relative to the amount of fuel being supplied by the injector pump. This turbocharger produces enough air density to reach close to the limit of the stock injector pump, so adding an intercooler will see small gains – but will lean the engine out and run much cooler. If adding an intercooler, we recommend FRONT MOUNT as top mounts can heat soak and cause overheating issues.
No, this turbocharger is designed to run and work within the factory 10mm injector pump’s limit.
It is not 100% required. But a factory airbox with better flowing (or clean) filter/ aftermarket airbox will increase throttle response and help with fuel economy.
Regular 10 000km oil changes, and check the lines for leaks or blockages.
No, A turbocharger increases the air density going into the engine. This leans out the ratio of air to fuel (AFR = Air Fuel Ratio). Running too much fuel from incorrect tune, or an insufficient cooling system well under factory specification can be a cause of this.
Yes, if you have the tools, knowledge and mechanical capability. But please be advised that damage to turbochargers during installation will not be covered under warranty.
No, the turbocharger and tune has been designed to work in with the factory internals.
Yes, providing you keep up regular maintenance and oil changes.
The wastegate is set to 10-11psi, the same as the factory 1HDT turbocharger. By using a T-Boost controller is can be safely turned up to 15psi maximum.
