TD5 VGT Hybrid Road Race Turbo
Defender Manual TD5 Variable Geometry Turbo Conversion is the world’s first bolt on Variable Geometry Turbo conversion designed specifically for the TD5 powered Land Rovers. This turbo is designed for upto 190-195BHP and 450-480Nm with correct tuning to match (Cars may Vary slightly) depending on age, mileage covered, fuel quality etc etc.
All our turbo chargers are designed and made by Turbo Technics, who specialize in automotive turbochargers and associated turbo equipment. Turbo Technics are a world-class company acting as consultants to many car manufactures who use their turbo re-manufacturing facility for many car brands including JLR, which gives us the edge with our specially made Hybrid turbos as we know that they are built correctly and come from the same factory which Land Rover use for their own re manufactured turbos!
NOTE: TD5 fixed boost box is required for this turbo installation (NOT included with the turbo purchase),. In some hi flow cases a “BAS maf adjust box” is needed to keep the air flow meter in its working voltage tolerance. We strongly advise you fit this turbo ONLY along side a performance intercooler.
We insist on all turbo charger installations you fit new engine oil and oil filter as well as a new oil feed pipe when making your installation.
We do not advise fitting with snorkels or restricted air intakes, or on cars that have higher gearing than the Defender 1:4 transfer case due to the lag you could get from the higher gearing.
We strongly insist you fit this turbo ONLY along side a performance inter cooler that has at least 17 rows of tube at 62x8mm to maintain a good pressure ballance and to help with charge cooling and that the turbo is fitted by a professional garage or workshop.
Fitting the turbo along with a snorkel or raised air intake may reduce the turbo efficiency as snorkels are restrictive to the air path. In some cases the race turbo can suck hoses flat if they are not of a very good quality. Turbos have no warranty if used for Race, Competition or Rally use on road or off road cars
Warning – The fitting of any performance part or power upgrade may affect the vehicle warranty and/or alter the vehicle type approval. For more information please contact your local Land Rover dealer. Also, we advise you to inform your insurance company if fitting any none standard parts or power upgrades.
A hybrid is not a factory standard turbo and is designed for high performance use, it carry’s a three month strict limited manufacturing fault warranty “Hybrid Turbo” return to base warranty only. Proof of expert fitting and the oil an filter change done when fitting may be needed for warranty claims.

This turbo is designed for OFF ROAD race competition use and MUST be fitted with an alloy intake, de cat exhaust and maff bypass pipe. This turbo is capable of more max power (up to 220BHP with correct tuning) than compared to the road version (up to 185BHP with correct tuning) it does give some lag in the lower rpm range until it spools fully due to the especially large internals it uses as its designed to be ran hard at higher rpm’s (On Boost) unlike the road going S208 version.
This turbo is not designed for smooth delivery road use on every day cars !!!
