    Z20LER which turbo?

    Does anyone know what turbo is used on the LER engines?

    As far as I know the let and lel use the same turbo. When I got my engine fitted Gareth(G-man) told me the turbo on the ler is a leh unit with a different actuator. It's just to see if anyone can confrim this so I can use the leh turbo maps on my ipf. I do know that the turbo on my car has the ridges where the boost pipe connects to the intercooler same as the leh turbo but I don't know if that's enough to confirm it.

    Cheers

    If they're the same turbo why has the ler only got 197bhp and leh got 237bhp? I thought the VXR's bigger turbo gave it the edge? Sorry if this sounds arsey don't mean it to be, just an observation

    It's not arsey. The z20let and z20lel use the same turbo but the let is 196 and the lel is 184 iirc.

    The z20leh is 240 and the z20ler is 200. A different map is all that's needed to get different figures from the same turbo.
