Hybrid Turbocharger Smart 451 and Mitsubishi 1000cc in applications up to 230 hp.
Turbo exchange: This option requires to ship your stock turbocharger out of a smart W451 and it is mandatory that your turbo has no cracks or damage in the turbine and compressor housings. Your order will be processed after we receive and check your turbocharger, if your cartridge is damaged there is an additional cost of 60€ for replacing it with a new one, in this case, you will be informed via e-mail or phone call. The hybrid turbocharger that you will receive has the following brand new parts: large billet compressor wheel, large turbine wheel. The compressor and turbine housings are refurbished borg, after being thoroughly checked and then is machined with the appropriate tolerance in CNC machines in order to work with the large wheels.
We machine and manufacture all parts in our CNC HAAS milling VF4 4 -Axis machine and our CNC HAAS turning SL20 3 - Axis machine, made in the USA, with 0.001mm accuracy. The turbocharger calibration is made in REDAT machine, constructed in Italy, with 0.8-1.0 G Force accuracy.
We engineer, design and manufacture all our products according to the ISO 9001:2008 certification.
The compressor wheel is manufactured out of solid (billet) high quality aluminum. The upgraded "gen 2" compressor wheel is much larger than the stock unit and thus has greatly improved flow characteristics while maintaining low weight due to it's construction and alloy.
The turbine wheel and shaft are much larger than the stock as well. This improves turbine exhaust gas flow and reduces backpressure. The reduced backpressure allows for more ignition timing and an overall broader torque curve. This is a bolt-on turbocharger for power and torque gains with the appropriate supporting mods.
The design of the wheels might change due to product upgrades.
For Smart 451
What is a hybrid turbo?
Hybrid turbochargers are based on the stock turbocharger. For example the cartridge, the modified turbine and compressor housings remain stock. The moving parts such as compressor and turbine wheel are upgraded. Of course this means that the comrpessor and turbine housings are specially machined , with the same geometry as the wheels, with the appropriate gap throughout the length of the blades. This is performed in modern CNC machines. All the above result in a product that has factory like fitment, without any modifications in the downpipe flange, the turbo inlet, the oil and coolant feeds or brackets.
The advantages of a hybrid turbo are the following:
