The TTE5XX Turbos for the AMG 3.0 V6 motor. Still keeping the original turbocharger the compressor wheel is exchanged for a TTE milled aluminum wheel with state-of-the-art geometry, 7+7 blade so producing extra power, TTE also CNC machined the OEM turbo inlets to make a perfect transition to the bigger compressor for max efficiency. Equally, they changed the original exhaust turbine for a far larger but very lightweight TTE designed the turbine for lower exhaust gas backpressure giving greater performance, yet still giving a good spool response. And finally a TTE motorsport upgrade bearing system was fitted for durability.
Precisely balancing turbochargers is a key critical factor to become a TTE upgrade unit as longevity and performance are paramount. Good balance improves acoustics also. Subsequent great care is taken with all TTE turbochargers to achieving our balance standards. Firstly parts are balanced at slow speeds up to 2800RPM in multiple planes using a single parts machine, then components are assembled and then the CHRA are dynamically balanced, but this time depending on the application at up to 250,000 RPM in multiple planes using in house VSR machine to acquire the ultimate equilibrium, to a standard far higher than OEM. Each turbocharger is supplied with a serial numbered balance test result document.
