This is in regard to my Allis Chalmers 920 Diesel garden tractor.
My tractor was rated at 18.5 hp from the factory and after some adjustments it makes a little more than that now, It is the most powerful garden tractor I have owned and will mow/blow or move anything I need with gobs of power to spare. In other words its got more power than I need but,, I need more, so were gonna bolt this little guy on there. Picked it up from a guy I know for 75$ :shock: It is an MHI (Mitsubishi Heavy Industries) TD03-07G from a Kubota V2003T diesel. Hopefully it will work real good and my tractor will be around 30-35hp
Heres the specs.
Turbine Wheel: 35.1/ 40.1mm
Compressor Wheel: 31.8/ 44.03mm
Turbine housing 3.3CM

How much boost will ya be running? I wonder how strong your bottom end is to handle the extra horses?

That should make your diesel sound pretty sweet along with the boost in horse power.

That is my concern as well Todd....along with possibly needing increased cooling capacity.

Are you going to use an intercooler.... More horses. You will be doing wheelies. :thumbs::rocker:

I wish you luck, but you should sell chances on how long it lasts.

Turbo diesels almost have specially hardened crank journal surfaces, much tougher than normal aspirated diesel cranks. Plus many have thicker con-rod beams. Load stress can easily double with turbo.
Gotta say that turbo looks cool. Maybe just hook it up to spin but not plumb the air into the intake....just to hear the whistle of the turbo! LOL

I'm not gonna run excessive boost, I'll start out at 8-10 psi and tune and adjust from there.

My plan is to go N/IC for now and see what happen and we could always add an intercooler later if needed.

As far as the bottom end is concerned it built plenty stout to handle mild turbocharging.

And with a turbo it will make the engine much more efficient.

It will definitely be cool. Good luck with the project. I want to hear that turbo spool up...

:ditto:Love the turbo whistlling! And you could always get an adapter to go between oil filter & housing to re-route oil to an oil cooler sitting in front of the radiator.

Yeah, I'm not going to hold my breath on how long that engine last before it turns to ground zero. I just think I would have done a few more calculations on stress, temperature, and feasibility before I hooked it up. Kind of like the guy strapping a JATO rocket to the top of his 68 Chevy and hitting the ignite button at 120mile an hour, may he R.I.P.
