Greater demands on the oil feed pipe
With the trend for smaller, more efficient engines that offer the power and torque of larger ones, today’s turbos rotate at speeds of over 300,000 revs per minute and reach temperatures close to 1000°C. In these conditions, oil has an essential job, cooling the shaft and bearings and lubricating its many moving parts. So, it’s vital that the turbo receives an uninterrupted supply, at the correct pressure – the job of the oil feed pipe.
Why replace the oil feed pipe?
It a turbo is starved of oil, even momentarily, because of a blockage or leak from the pipe, it can cause costly damage to the turbo. And in severe cases the engine too. This is why we’d always recommend fitting new pipes when replacing or reinstalling the turbo. Whilst it may add a few pounds to the bill, it is much more cost effective then having to fit another brand-new turbo, saving your customers valuable time and money in the long run.
