Custom turbos being made by SJL Custom in Ontario, Canada

Hi all,

Well this time I think I have a shop that will complete the modifications on the N54 turbos.

They are going to start machining this week and everything has been going really well.

The pics that I am posting, you will notice a huge difference in both exhaust and compressor side.

So they are hoping that they should have the prototype ready to go by the end of the month!

But I am going to keep my fingers cross just the same!

This is what is also going on, from SJL Custom:

They will be working on the wastegate solution this week. They have the engineering part done just need to start making the parts. The stock materials used are really cheap and soft, thus creating the result everyone encounters. As far as comparison to the RB turbos, My compressor wheel is a little more efficient as far as they can tell. Fit? everything will bolt up like stock.

Future developments will include lightweight billet compressor wheels, Titanium Turbine wheels, and the possibility of ball bearing cartridges, all reducing the amount of turbo lag and spool up time. First they want to get these done and see what we get as far as dyno and performance numbers.


Enjoy the pics!

Any new developments on this ? The "end of the month" was April 1, based on your post.

Steve is on a business trip and should be back by the end of the week, hopefully.

He did receive the material for fabricating a new part on the turbos, so it should be done soon.
