The home to the turbocharging project of my 330Ci ZHP. Please browse the links below the “Turbocharging” menu link on the main menu to see the components used in this turbocharging project.

 

You can use a standard CT3 Comp Turbo in a CT3-6265 Flavor good for 700HP. I wanted the Billet, Triple Ball Bearings and Oil-Less so the price you see is what this kind of turbo costs. If you have any questions you can find me on ZHPmafia.com .

Do not forget that when going to a turbocharged application you will need to address the pressurizing of the vacuum system so some one way check valves will be needed. The brake booster will need a one way if not equipped so will the fuel tank/purge lines. Also you will need to reconfigure the Crank case ventilation system so you don’t pressurize the crankcase and blow out your dip stick or seals.
