Mitsubishi Triton Inlet Manifold Issues

Mitsubishi Triton 2.5L


This engine is detuned by Mitsubishi and also Torque limited when delivered by the factory.
Poor boost control with the factory standard settings can be annoying.  
The factory turbo is reliable, but if over boosted with boost controllers etc will result in wasted power.
Soot build up due to EGR is common (costs long term to clean!) we have seen inlet manifolds clog up as pictured below, cleaning these out will have a massive power increase and take the strain off your turbocharger.


If you have the budget a (BILLET) turbo upgrade will add (PEAK) Torque, earlier in the rev range, ECU tune is not needed with our turbo systems, but can be done to make our turbocharger’s work even better with your motor.
If you want big grunt and big torque then ok, this is an option here, then you need to plan an engine rebuild or be wary of the resulting load on the engine.

Here are some mods that can be done whilst replacing a turbocharger to add the best results and there are also some long engine life tips there too!

  • Upper engine cleaner and in-tank fuel additive once every 4-5 tanks to keep those injectors clean and chambers from filling with carbon.
  • Good quality low friction engine oil such as Mobil 5 w 30 will give around 5 KW and better fuel economy over a non-synthetic oil.
  • Fuel system clean, this and often get good results, cleans the EGR "gunk" out of the intake and combustion area.
    Also injectors as well as an inlet manifold and exhaust as well as fuel pump, lines and sensors.
  • Tappet adjustment, most mechanics forget this as it's not an easy job.
  • Cleaning your intake manifold, very common to build up with carbon deposits.
