Diesel enthusiasts looking to upgrade the turbocharger on their 2017 through 2019 Duramax turbo-diesel L5P V8 engine can now turn to Wehrli Custom Fabrication for its latest single turbo upgrade kit. The new install kit was designed to replace the factory VGT turbo on diesel-powered L5P V8 engines with a new Borg Warner S400 frame turbocharger of your choice.
The kit comes with a ton of gear to make the upgrade simple and easy, including replacements for the original factory plumbing and Y-bridge with new high-flow 3-inch and 3.5-inch pipes and Y-bridge. The kit also comes with new stainless steel braided Parker Lines, with the oil feed line connecting to the main oil galley on the side of the block. The kit’s new downpipe was designed to bolt directly onto the exhaust without any need for cutting or modification.
The new L5P V8 engine turbo upgrade kit also includes a five-inch intake and air box and dry air filter, as well as a ceramic-coated, twisted T4 pedestal and hardware. What’s more, customers are offered a selection of powder coating color options, turbo cover color options, and several other upgrades, if desired.
Wehrli Custom Fabrication says that its new L5P V8 engine upgrade kit can support a claimed 1,000 wheel horsepower with the right mods in place.
Naturally, the company also recommends that the kit be paired with a transmission built to run the extra power, as well as new injectors, a stroker CP3 conversion, and a lift pump for optimum performance results. Custom tuning is also required to make it all run correctly. The new L5P V8 engine upgrade kit is intended as a racing product for competition only, and is unavailable for shipping to California.
Interested buyers will find Wehrli Custom Fabrication’s L5P V8 engine upgrade kit listed on the company website, starting at $3,495. Note that the turbocharger is sold separately.
