Tuning up a T4 2400 diesel


The of a Standard 2400 D Aspirated of a 1991 VW T4 Transporter without (as it was before…)

The old 1991 Volkswagen 2400 Diesels has a really engine; alas it has the standard of all the old mechanically aspirated engines: the maximum speed is approximately 120 (78 M/h), moreover, in mountains the roads are normally steep, it can the driver to drive too often in second gear. In general old engines have a limited especially on uphill roads and off

To these problems on my VW aspirated 2400 AAB engine I installed a

OEM reference number of the turbocharger of a VW TDI 2500 of 1996

The best and option to do this tuning is to the manifold intake, the exhaust and the turbocharger of a VW Transporter TDI 2500, ACV 5 cylinders, year 1996. The T4 Tdi has a similar engine block. The Tdi can be found second hand or at a reasonable price. Rotation or new Tdi can be found searching in ebay, the are: (T4 Tdi) krümmer turbolader (turbo); Abgaskrümmer manifold); Dichtungen (gaskets); (manifold intake) all for the VW T4 TDI 1996.

I found a spares shop in Andreas Haase, its email is:

I wrote a with the OEM reference numbers the Volkwagen Etka catalogue of all the needed for the elaboration.

They are all VW Transporter TDI engine ACV 1996 parts and they are all adaptable to the 1991 T4 2400 AAB engine.

Exhaust manifold: 074 253 033 G (VW Etka only: 074 253 033 C ?)

Turbocharger: 074 145 701

Gaskets of the intake: 074 129 717

Gaskets of the Exhaust 028 129 589 B (are 5 pieces)

also the 028 129 748

Exhaust manifold including of (rotation) cost: 262 Euro shipment) Manifold intake 135 Euro (including shipment Germany) All Gaskets for both intakes: about 20 Euro

You also need to installs:

aspiration-pipe (18 Euro)

A ‘motorquality’ pipe for the oil (36 Euro)

A silicon for the oil recovery (22 Euro)

A pressure oil for the turbo (aeronautic type) (33

Two connectors (7 Euro)

Moreover you to make the flanges for the turbo you close the EGR with a stopper.

Please that the 2400 Aspired are old and therefore you does not have to it too much exaggerating with the of the turbo. 0.45 bar is ok.

The pressure of a turbo can be expressed in Bar or PSI For Square Inch): 1 Bar is equivalent to PSI therefore 0,45 Bar is 6,5 PSI (or 0,4 Atm). A big turbocharger on a new engine can work a pressure of 1,2 Bars but such values of pressure are not safe our old engines. The important is to install the reducing the pressure (we regulated it to 0.45 bar) and to leave the pump, EGR and injectors, as they are, installing merely the turbo parts of a TDI. give some more to the injectors, that is all.

The result: Turbo manifolds of a TDI install on the engine of my 2400 D

Is good to know that the engine gasket of the Aspirated T4 D was already a turbo-type gasket. the T4 2400 D the oil filter had already the for the oil of the turbo.

On my T4 California 2500 D we have installed the turbo a pressure of just 0.45

All the spares (manifolds turbo) of a TDI 2500 fitted perfectly on my D.

The has been quite good. I did not get a considerable increase of speed, because we left the turbo low and we did not change any diesel pump ecc. Besides the pick-up is now The T4 is a reasonably better in overtaking vehicles, even in uphill the acceleration time is shorter and in slopes I do not have to reduce too often like I usually did

Remember that the installation is on own risk. I do not take responsibilities of any tuning up an old engine is fun, but uncertain.

I hope that article will be useful. luck!
