As close to plug-and-play upgrade as you can get for the OM642 engine! The GTB2260VKLR is factory turbo from the most powerful factory version of the OM642 which made 265 horsepower factory. It is also one of the few VNT ball-bearing turbos.
- Larger 2260 size compressor & turbine
- Latest-gen VNT mechanism
- Ball Bearing Cartridge w/ Ceramic bearings
- Water cooling
This turbocharger requires some modifications to work. First, most early OM642 engines do not have water cooling, so you will need to create a new coolang loop to get coolant to the turbocharger and get the latest version of the turbocharger support mount - the W166 version will work, available below. Second, if your vehicle was equpped with an EGR system you may need to modify your EGR pipe to match the slighly modified EGR location on this turbocharger.
Includes the IDParts Turbo Install Kit (OM642).
