Turbo remanufacturer Carwood, is launching a range of OE and OE matching oil feed pipes.
The all new programme, which consists of more than 200 part numbers and covers the main OEMs, including BorgWarner, Garrett, Mitsubishi, IHI and Mahle, completes the brand’s comprehensive turbocharger line-up.
Together with its existing range of OE-approved, environmentally friendly remanufactured turbochargers, expert technical support, online cataloguing and next-day delivery, Carwood now offers what it describes as a “full service, best practice turbo solution”.
Peter Green, general manager at Carwood Turbochargers said: “As more and more manufacturers turn to turbochargers to improve their emissions and fuel economy, more and more vehicles will need work on these boost enhancing products, presenting an exciting opportunity for factors and garages alike.
“By providing a full product offer, technical support and service, under a proven quality brand like Carwood, aftermarket professionals can buy all their turbo needs from one source, giving them a vital competitive advantage in a lucrative and fast growing market.”
The all new feed pipe programme, which covers both fast moving and specialist applications for car and light commercial vehicles, will enable aftermarket professionals to perform a best practice service on all turbocharger technologies.
This includes the latest generation vehicles, where thanks to the trend for downsized engines, oil feed pipes will play an ever more important role.
Green added: “With modern vehicles demanding the power output of larger engines, but with the economy of smaller ones, today’s turbochargers can operate at speeds of over 300,000 revs per minute, and at temperatures close to 1,000°C.
“This puts a huge strain on the oil, the lifeblood of any vehicle.
“If its supply is restricted, even momentarily, or if it is contaminated, it can cause costly damage to the turbo.
“And in severe cases, irreversible damage to the engine too.
“Because of this, it is always recommended to fit new oil feed pipes when replacing or refitting a turbo.”
