The Hybid GT1544v stage 1 features a larger 49mm billet compressor wheel and machined housing. This turbo is a direct replacement for the Focus 110, but will also work on the Fiesta 90 only requiring an ECU flash to enable the VNT system. In tests this turbo had better response and pick up than the standard turbo. With supporting mods, 110 injectors, induction kit and better flowing exhaust and a good remap this turbo has seen over 171bhp and 280+ft lbs. (a mk6 fiesta ST is 148bhp and 150ft lbs for comparison)
The stage 2 hybrid has all the above plus a larger 52mm compressor wheel and modified exhaust turbine and uprated vnt mechanism which will see 190 bhp and over 300 ft lbs ( 2 customers fiesta 1.6 tdci’s recently made 198.4 hp and 198.5 Hp respectively!)
If you are looking for a recommended mapper for this engine and turbo combination, we highly recommend MATT REIDY of REIDY REMAPS in Yeovil. He has a lot of experience mapping these engines and gets very good results!
If you current turbo is working but you just want an upgrade and more power then this is perfect for your TDCI. However we would advise that if your current turbo has blown and clogged up your engine that you dont fit this hybrid as a lot of work is involved in replacing a blown turbo compared to swapping a working turbo for a new hybrid one, and even then if followed to the manufacturers requirements we have found further failure is common!
