Only for BlueTec engines, 2010 and later. Not for any model 2009 and earlier. This is NOT a cheap Chinese imitation product.
This is a brand new, original Mercedes Benz/Garrett turbocharger, exactly the same unit as sold by both Mercedes Benz and Freightliner dealers.
It is a complete unit, and includes the electronic actuator. A package of three gaskets, supplied by Garrett, is also included.
THE ELECTRONIC BOX (TURBO VANE ACTUATOR) IS NOW AVAILABLE AS A SEPARATE PART.
One of the biggest issues and causes of failure with higher mileage V6 engines, is oil starvation
at the center cartridge of the turbocharger.
The oil feed and return passages are housed inside the cast iron
pedestal/support stand that the turbo sits on. Mercedes Benz dealers
automatically replace this every time that they do a turbocharger
replacement. The passageways inside this become
restricted over time, due to "oil coking". (Google: Engine Oil Coking) The turbo rotates at
up to 280,000 RPM's and you do not want a lubrication problem
at this point of your engine, as it will cause premature failure of
the turbocharger. You can see the support stand and the two related gaskets
that are used with this below.
We strongly suggest that you replace this support stand and gaskets, when replacing your turbocharger, otherwise you risk quick failure of your new turbo.
NO CORE DEPOSIT REQUIRED, AS THIS TURBO
IS BRAND NEW AND SOLD OUTRIGHT. SAVE YOURSELF THE HEADACHE BY BUYING A
NEW TURBO AND NOT A REMANUFACTURED UNIT. REBUILT TURBOS ARE RARELY OF
GOOD QUALITY AND SELDOM LAST VERY LONG.
