Two Stage Parallel Turbochargers for Diesel Engines

In our Two Stage parallel systems, two turbos work in sequence, delivering significant gains in power and torque in engines typically 2.0L or bigger.

Balancing power & efficiency at every speed

Our Two Stage parallel turbo for diesel engines was an industry first when we released it in 2006. Since then, it’s increasingly in-demand among auto manufacturers seeking enhanced performance, fuel efficiency and emissions control.

Range

Our Two Stage parallel turbos for diesel engines are available for engines with as much as 2.0L of displacement.

Two Stage Parallel Turbochargers for Diesel Engines
Key Features

In our Two Stage parallel system, two turbos work in sequence to improve engine performance. Our high-temperature, high-durability turbine control valve is designed to ensure rapid transition between the different modes of turbo operation.

From ignition to 2400 rpm:

  • The primary turbo activates (vanes vary from fully closed to almost fully open)
  • The turbine valve and the compressor discharge valve remain closed
  • The compressor recirculation valve stays open

From 2400 rpm to 2800 rpm:

  • The secondary turbo activates (vanes close slightly during transition, then open again)
  • The turbine valve begins to open
  • The compressor discharge valve opens

Beyond 2800 rpm:

  • Both turbos are in full sequential mode (vanes are fully open)
  • The turbine valve stays open
  • The compressor discharge valve is open
