Who was it that was also interested in doing a larger turbo on their 3.0 TDi?

I remember reading a post from someone else on here that they were also interested in doing a larger turbo upgrade for their 3.0 TDi? I think it was on a Q7..?

What year Q7?

I'm having mine shipped in from Europe, and wanted to see who else was interested.
I can give you more details on what to get.

That would be me; 2014 Q7, I've seen some options from Darkside Developments but am interested in how yours goes. (Deployed, not doing anything for awhile.)

Thx for your service Built4sin! Your Blue V8 was one of the sharpest builds IMHO. How you digging the TDI? 2014 is still the older style body correct? I 100% prefer the older body to the newer boxier "ultra quarto" style.

Darkside has some nice stuff.

The GTD 3.0 turbo looks pretty cool.

I have heard directly from one member that after over a year and a half his torque converter is experiencing some issues. This is where a TCM tune would come in handy.

The stock trans is rated for 800Nm of torque IIRC so the TC failure seems odd, but not unheard of.

I'm going to check into the ability to cross flash some of the "hotter" TCM tunes into my TCM and see what issues arise if any.

I think i'm going to stick with the euro factory gtb2260 with a different compressor wheel.
It's the wifes car so I don't want to go to crazy LOL

I'll save that for the duramax i'm putting in the H2

And thank you for your service to our great country!

Im pretty sure my trans issue is not power related....honestly i was having this issue with my trailer causing some kind of weird short or something causing the converter to stick open and throw a code.....that combined with to long without servicing it, ive treated it pretty hard 4wd launching, drifting on wet pavement...really im not surprised it hasnt blown to bits lol.

We are going to try and save her....i still think being able to tune the trans, adjust pressures and shift patterns would help but i think its a solid trans.

thanks to yrktreg i think it will be fixed up this summer.


Im running around 30-32lbs of boost, with a fairly aggressive fuel map...if i had to guess (no dyno) it has to be 350hp and 600 ish tq.....Played with almost every v8 truck on the road and destroyed them by football fields lol...its very quick
