Turbo question

All right, I have a 04 350 with 52k on it, and decided to do the RCD EGR delete, I'm in the middle of doing it. But while I have the turbo out, is there anything that can be done to it performance wise?

When I worked for Volvo they used to have an adjusting screw on the turbo that you could mess with it, of course, too much boost you would burn the turbo out, but we could have a little fun with it.

Thanks for the help in advance

You could go to an international dealership and get a turbo reconditioning kit and remove the turbine housing and buff up and clean the variable vanes and unison ring in the vgt mechanism...its a good time to do it. I wish I remembered the kit part number, I have it in my car ill repost later in a few hours.

Thanks,
Adam

You could put it on the shelf and get a Powermax to replace it with

lol I would love the Powermax, but it is a bit on the expensive side. I was mainly looking for something more simplethat can be done to this one.

No biggie, just curious, but thanks everyone for the reply

Nothing really that can be done for performance, but a number of things that can be done for maintenance.

International part #1870713C91. This kit comes with everything you need besides a die grinder. It includes instructions as well very easy to do, pretty much removing the exhaust housing and buffing it and the internal part fre of soot and carbon buildup for free movement. Its very easy to do the instructions are easy to follow hopefully this helps.

Thanks,
Adam
