NOTE: There are different order options and various lead-times on TTE turbochargers. A new unit could be purchased or your turbo can be sent out for the upgrade process. Call or email before placing the order as we will have to factor in shipping costs and current exchange rate and research lead times. For customers with EWG turbos, TTE does not test or recondition the electronic actuator you send. Your sent actuator will be re-installed.
TTE400 N20 UPGRADE TURBOCHARGER
Introducing the TTE400 Upgrade hybrid turbocharger for the four-cylinder petrol N20 engine from BMW.
To construct a TTE400 N20 we change the original compressor and employ a far larger and more efficient billet 6+6 wheel and mill the compressor cover to the optimum gap to match the new compressor profile. Notice we CNC mill the cover to have a smooth transition to the intake inlet, no big step to hinder airflow as you see on the competition's offerings.
We replace the original exhaust turbine and CNC mill the turbine housing to install a larger 9 blade turbine for greater gas flow and lower backpressure.
Precisely balancing our turbochargers is a key critical factor to become a TTE upgrade unit as longevity and performance are paramount. Good balance improves acoustics also. Subsequent great care is taken with all TTE turbochargers to achieving our balance standards. Firstly parts are balanced at slow speeds up to 2800RPM in multiple planes using our single parts machine, then components are assembled and then the CHRA are dynamically balanced, but this time depending on the application at up to 250,000 RPM in multiple planes using our in house VSR machine to acquire the ultimate equilibrium, to a standard far higher than OEM. Each turbocharger is supplied with a serial numbered balance test result document.
Please Note: For horsepower designations, PS stands for "Pferdestärke", which converts to roughly 98.5HP for every 100PS, so for instance a TTE800 package is roughly 789HP.
