Choosing The Right Turbo for my Detroit 12.7/14.0L

This guide will help you navigate the many different options available for Detroit S60 specially with current trends of non VGT turbocharger usage

What type of Vehicle do you own:

Dump Truck

Vehicle used to Carry dirt/rock debris or use in Dirt roads. EITHER 12.7 or 14.0L

Flat Bed / Dry Cargo

Vehicle used for Dry cargo, Flat bed, mostly highway usage, EITHER 12.7 OR 14.0L

WHY The use of the vehicle Matters?

The usage matters because of a specific component on the turbocharger Called Thrust bearing or Axial bearing, The 360-degree axial bearing provides better support to the turbocharger shaft compared to standard bearings. This comprehensive support helps distribute the load more evenly across the bearing surface, leading to less wear and tear and a significantly longer lifespan for the bearing and the turbocharger as a whole.

Dump trucks and vehicles that drive on dirt roads is HIGHLY recommended to purchase a 360 Degree thrust bearing because this turbos will be working with a more restricted air filter than a Dry cargo vehicle.

With the popularity of the usage of the turbocharger 171702 From Borgwarner for many different applications not only Detroit 12.7 but 14.0L and Even Cummins engines, we have seen an increase in complaints for Oil leakage to The air intake side, intercooler side.

This problems are almost always found in dump trucks and engine modifications from 14.0 to 12.7l Conversion. To avoid this problem you must purchase a 360-degree axial bearing, and a turbocharger capable of the horsepower that the engine is putting out
