Turbochargers

Bwd Turbochargers

Intermotor is fully committed to the turbo market. Scroll down to learn more about the turbo market and Intermotor's coverage and engineering. 

The Growing Turbo Market

Current CAFE standards have pushed auto makers to increase fuel economy on new vehicles. With the rapid introduction of new smaller displacement turbocharged engines, consumers get V8 power while maintaining V6 fuel economy. Here are some industry predictions for turbochargers by 2020:

The Upward Trend in Turbocharger Coverage



A Growing Market

Vehicle manufacturers are adding turbochargers at a double-digit rate. Over the next 5 years, the turbo market is expected to grow to more than 8 million turbocharged vehicles.

Why Turbo?

While Diesel passenger cars are the main consumers of turbochargers, gasoline-powered vehicles utilize them as well. Why turbo? Simple. Downsized engines are needed to meet new fuel and emissions standards. Turbochargers improve power and economy up to 40%.

Full-Line Coverage

Intermotor’s extensive research has helped determine the numbers you need to compete in this market. Intermotor® currently provides coverage for Audi/VW and Saab, and will be expanding applications for Volvo, Subaru, Mazda, BMW, Mercedes, Mini, Fiat, and Porsche.


100% New Turbochargers

Intermotor's line of 100% new turbochargers means you can install with complete confidence. Each direct-fit replacement part ensures ease of installation, and we have turbochargers for both gasoline and diesel applications. 

Rotating journal and thrust bearings 100% tested to meet OE performance

Turbo vacuum-operated actuator diaphragm constructed with high-grade rubber material to resist heat fatigue

Includes complete gasket kit for ease of installation


Turbocharger Boost Solenoid

The turbocharger boost solenoid (a.k.a. wastegate solenoid) monitors the amount of boost generated in a turbocharged motor. Faulty turbocharger solenoids won’t properly monitor the amount of boost generated in a turbocharged motor, which will decrease the life of the turbo and motor. Our Turbocharger Boost Solenoid is a direct replacement that regulates the amount of boost being generated from stock or upgraded turbochargers.

Direct-fit OE replacement for ease of installation

Designed to restore proper wastegate function to maximize turbocharger boost pressure and engine performance

Includes mounting bracket for easy, direct-fit installation


Turbocharger Bypass Valve

The turbocharger bypass valve recirculates vented air back to the compressor inlet. Over time, OE turbocharger bypass valves can start to leak. To prevent future leaks, our Turbocharger Bypass Valve features an upgraded “710P” valve with a 14.4lb spring. The stronger spring helps the turbo spool up faster and maintain consistent boost pressure throughout the power band.

Turbocharger Boost Sensor

The Turbocharger Boost Sensor measures turbo manifold pressure to the ECM, and is used to calculate air density and the required fuel delivery for optimum combustion. If it fails, the system may not add fuel under boost and can result in loss of power and possible engine damage. Turbocharger Speed Sensor The Turbocharger Speed Sensor provides the ECM with a rotational speed reading in Variable Geometry Turbos, which helps prevent excessive turbo RPM’s that can cause turbo and/or engine damage.
