Marine Turbocharger Service and Installation

If you’re looking to maximize engine power and performance on your boat, you’ll want a marine turbocharger installed! These incredible pieces of engineering hardware can really put some oomph into your seafaring outings. turbos are snail-like metallic devices with spinning turbines inside. Marine turbocharges use a process called Forced induction. This process is basically sucking in vast amounts of highly pressurized air into the engine, far more than would normally be the case via a standard, or naturally aspirated, air intake system. The result of which is either better fuel economy more power, and sometimes both! Even if your engine already has a turbocharger, it might need maintenance or an upgrade to a larger, more effective turbo. If your vessel doe not has a turbo, we can quote you on the parts and labor for having one installed, tested, and ready to go!

Check out some of the well known, worldwide brands of  marine turbocharger tech we work with, including but not limited to:

  • Borg Warner
  • Garrett
  • Cummins
  • Hoslet
  • IHI
  • KKK
  • Mitsubishi
  • Schwitzer

A Marine Turbourbocharger is a powerful piece of equipment that gets super hot because of all the work it’s doing. these devices absolutely require a constant,  steady supply of clean, filtered oil as they spin at incredibly high RPMs. which would generate insane amounts of friction if not for the lubrication. In order to mitigate this incredible heat protection,  you’ll need a good well-functioning cooling and oil system, which has been properly maintained. In order for these devices to pull their weight, all air pathways must be at maximum integrity with no leaks. Otherwise, insufficient air can be pulled into the marine turbocharger, resulting in poor performance. RPM diesel technicians work with these components ona regular basis. Our techs possess a deep understanding of how to properly maintain the Turbo system in your diesel engine. Here are some of the benefits of installing a turbocharger:

  • Doubles the horsepower of your engine!
  • Better fuel efficiency and higher overall engine performance!
  • Lowers engine emissions!
  • Improves torque and towing power!
  • Requires minimal maintenance!

Turbos and Forced induction installations and maintenance are complex systems that should be approached by trained, licensed professionals. RPM diesel has had our hands in Diesel engine systems since 1956 and is the number one  Diesel and turbo shop in south Florida.
