I've seen it mostly on Facebook BMW diesel groups. Not modifying the swirl flaps, but the intake box itself.

Have you had a chance to get re tuned and clear the code?. Do you have the vehicle still? And if so how is it running? Any other issues come up down-the-line that you feel we're tune related?

Does anyone have the KermaTDI tune with the Xhp trans tune? Wondering if these compliment each other well.

How hard is the DPF delete install? The weather here this weekend will be cold. Is it something I can knock out in an hour or two or do I need to set aside a whole weekend?

^^ An hour or two haha.

I can safely say I think you should budget 5-10 to do this job. The worst part is that there is no documentation anywhere on this job.

I will comment that you do not need to remove the engine mount to pull the DPF as is required on the 335d, which is nice.

Well homies,

Its been done... As far as I know, I just became the first 328d to go hybrid turbo. I was told by a few that it wouldn't be possible, and even some manufacturers of turbos in Europe said the same. I received the IHI Turbo (56mm) on Friday, installed Saturday, and just finished the tune/logging today.

Power band feels so much better as well as delivery of power. Let the wife drive it, and she said the car feels "lighter". I see what she means as it seems it doesn't feel as winded when getting on it.

Turbo was around $1k shipped via FexEx International. I have posted additional details in the BMW USA Diesels Group in Facebook. I definitely feel it was worth it overall!

Congrats on being the first. I look forward to seeing the dyno results and videos when you have them!

The hybrid turbos for the 4cyl I've experienced couldn't keep up boost request at all past 3800rpm, at max duty cycle. It was worse than stock.
Watch those logs.

Looks good! You're right - looks basically like stock, would not be noticed by an untrained eye. Thank you for sharing!

The highest sodium I've had was 9ppm. This is over 5 reports. How high is yours?

Took the 328D to get dyno'd yesterday. The shop has a mustang dyno that they have nicknamed 'The Heartbreaker', which definitely fits. The shop owner said it would be ~15% correction, which would put me at around 260whp and 428wtq (stock 335d territory)

Either way, I'm happy with the results of the hybrid turbo install! 🍻

The dyno says power at engine?

Peak torque at 3000rpm and peak hp at 3600-3700rpm is quite opposite of what you'd want

It is wheel not sure why its displayed like that. I will eventually get another dyno done because I didn't like starting rpm was set so high. The shop doesn't deal with diesel often apparently, but the price was amazing. It is what it is unfortunately

I agree, the starting rpm was pretty high, and even the ending rpm was kind of low, only a 2200rpm spread.

I'm also kind of surprised the HP pretty much tops out so early at ~3k rpm and doesn't really do anything after that. It basically makes anything rpm above peak not really useful. Can your tuner do anything to keep the HP curve climbing?

I'm not convinced Mustang dyno are as "heartbreaking" as everybody claims. I think a lot of people use that as an excuse in general (not saying that you are). When I dyno'd stock on a mustang and dynojet the difference was 3.5%.

Could be the case, from reading other posts across the interwebs seems that if it's calibrated in a certain way, there isn't much difference at all. My tuner is in Germany, so the contact hours are weird due to time zones, but I do need to upgrade my fuel pump because we don't have any left to work with. I found that an n57 cp4.2 (iirc) will work, but fuel rail will need to be modified in order to work on the n47. it'd be 800USD + shipping to come from Germany for just the pump. I figure since we have the 335D over here, I can find one around the states and save a little.

Not sure if it will alter much but I set my rpms to limit at 4600 via xhp for manual mode and around 41-4200 for sport. Just feels good to me with those limits
