Kwikchip 222

Recommended Posts

We have a kwikchip 160 which we cannot fault at all. We are looking at getting a larger machine with a wider intake and also a turn table.

I have found a 222 without a turbo and was wondering how easy it would be to fit a turbo and would it work?

Well you cant just slap a turbo on it, and that 222 is far from new so even if you did turbo it, how long would it last?

The 222 is in my top 3 tow behinds I've ever used. Loved the one I used to use. That was a none turbo and I didn't think it needed one, it was awesome!

just sticking a turbo on is a no no for an industrial type diesel you will need different pistons and piston cooling nozzles different fuel pump and afc device also intercooler depending on boost pressure and the ball ache of getting it all to fit also turbos are matched to their application its easier just doing a repower with a more powerful lump
