code p 0299 refers to turbo/supercharger ---low boost=== causes --- mechanical fault
check for all turbo hoses tight , inter cooler not split or has a hole in it

Check this out with performance shops as there may be an intercooler that fits straight in. You may have to get brackets in a kit or make them yourself. The problem will the routing of the intercooling hoses to and from the turbo/manifold . Front mounted intercooler are more efficient at cooling the air so the only problem I can see apart from the engineering side of fitting it is that you may have to have a speed shop with a chassis dyno reprogram the CPU to get the best performance from the cooler more dense air.

T5 is no power jerking and black smoke


Is it a TDI? if so you may have fuel issues or possibly a turbo issue check and make sure all your hose connections from your turbo to the air to air cooler and air cooler to engine are hooked up also make sure there are no holes or cracks in your air to air cooler. check your air filter. Black smoke indicates you ar buring fuel too much fuel not enouph air in the combustion chamber.

My 2007 range rover sport supercharged is showing me reduce engine performance


because of everyday use there is wear and tear, some parts need a regular maintenance and even we need to change, in your case is definitely on the fuel efficiency, you need check the following parts, 1) check your fuel pump (dirty), 2) air filter (dirty), 3) Check spark plugs, 4) check your engine thermostat ( possible malfunction), 5) oxygen sensors (circuit low) and 6). catalytic converter (efficiency below threshold)... these are all connected for engine performance and efficiency...maybe one or two or even three from the list are not work properly... hope it can help you

I have a diesel turbo and i want to put it on my ford


There is more to supercharging an engine than just putting a turbo charger on it. Fuel delivery will need to be adjusted. A different cam shaft, valves and maybe pistons.
You will probably need a larger radiator to get rid of the additional heat. The additional horse power and torque will destroy the stock transmission and differentials so you will need to replace with bigger.
Oil should be tapped off just after the oil filter. There is probably a plug somewhere close. Be careful not to starve the rest of the engine for oil. May have to put a oil pressure gage at the end of the oil gallery to monitor minimum oil pressure.
Are you sure you want to "turbo" this engine?

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 Dual Air Intake


is this one of those cyclone cartridges you put in the intake hosing? if so then dont waste your money, the power gain off of one of these is not noticable and the fuel economy wont change enough to make a difference, the engine is gonna draw air in at whatever rate it will, the only way to change that is with forced air induction (ie turbo, supercharger, blower). these things only help to mix the fuel with the air a little better so you get a more even burn and less wet spray fuel making it into the cylinder. forced air induction works by changing the volumetric efficiency of your engine, say you have a 4L engine, running naturally aspirated in 1 cycle that 4L engine draws an average of 85% of that 4L, if you put on a turbo or blower or supercharger you make that engine draw in more than its 4L capacity so your 4L engine would be running at say 120% of that 4L, trying to compress that much more fuel/air mix is where you get all the extra power from. ill save the explanation of an intercooler for another day....

I want to put Turbo to my Golf GTI VR6 98', what changes my engine needs? it needs new pistons? it needs special gasket?..... which is better for it, Turbo or Supercharger?


the amount of money and time it would require to turn your N/A (naturally aspirated) into a forced induction car(turbocharger, or supercharger), you would require the buttom end to be built, fueling, exahust, ecu(computer) forged rods/pistons/ then the turbo or super charger, also alot more, if you go to vwvortex.com and click on the forums and look around, you can see the different setups people are running on their VW's AUDI's

Engine power loss


Can you hear the turbo spooling up? If yes do you hear an air noise... could a number of things from bad turbo, air to air leaking or its piping, or something simple like a clogged fuel or air filter.
