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.
TTE580 B58 UPGRADE TURBOCHARGER BMW B58 ENGINE
TTE580 is our very latest hybrid performance upgrade turbocharger based on the Original turbocharger for the BMW B58 inline-six-cylinder turbocharged engine. Superfast spool and response with extra power. We feel this is the best performing 550+hp hybrid.
Engineered & Enhanced
To construct a TTE580 we change the original compressor and employ a far larger and more efficient billet wheel with extended tip technology and mill the compressor cover to the optimum gap to match the new compressor profile. We change the Original exhaust turbine for a larger 9 blade high-flow item to lower EGT and raise the power potential but maintain a great boost response profile.
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 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.
