    hello all, im new on here but im told that this is the place for the best info! im looking to fit a larger turbo to my 325tds but im struggling to find a suitable unit, iv got a td04 from an evo but its physicaly too big to fit between the engine and the inner wing. i dont mind doing sum mods to the manifold but was wondering if anyone had any ideas/suggestions or if anyone has done a similar conversion? the turbo is wound up as much as poss, ive fitted a front mount and the exhaust is de-catted and straight through. id like to upgrade the turbo before i have a remap!

    How many miles are on your TDS?

    just a word or warning, too much boost or heat can crack the head, can be common on very high mileage m51 engines.

    This member http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/member.php?u=3646 seemed to know about tuning diesels but I've noticed he's not been on line for a while

    May be worth sending him a PM
