Td42 Diesel pump modification


Recommended Posts

Good day mates.


I'm new to the forum and wanna thank you for the great discussions that are already out.


My truck is a 93 model LWB TD42 silver top.

I'm thinking about upgrading the engine with a turbo.

I read that, to get more power out of it I would have to upgrade the pump as well. So my question is, if I have to buy a 2k+ 12mm pump or if there is a way to get this done like some kind of backyard job. Just changing distributor head or is there more work involved?


My second question is: what Turbo can I use? I have to explain that I live in Bolivia and good Quality 3rd Party Products are nearly not available and/ore not affordable. I would have to seach a used Turbo and adapt it to de td42. What could you suggest?


The good thing however is that I don't have to worry about laws and regulations. It just has to work. ;-)


I appreciate your help.

The injection pump is not a build for back yarder for sure.... As for the turbo, "how  long is a piece of string?" You will have to search what is avail in Bolivia.

Usual suspects like Garret, Switzer, perhaps KKK or Holset make something you could use. The thing with non turbo injection pump working correctly with the specific turbo is another matter.
