Turbo Kits

5 posts in this topic

HI Guys i'm new to the forum. I own a 2008 smart fortwo and im looking to install a turbo into it, i was wondering if someone knows where i am able to purchase a kit or if its safe to possibly fabricate my own turbo system. Thanks.

There is only one system I can recommend and it is no longer produced.  If you can do the fab work yourself and tune as necessary, I would go that route.

Some petrol 451s came with turbo so should be straightforward to add. Buy from Smart or second hand.

For someone thinking of going the OE route, in addition to the mechanical parts you will need the ECU tuned or a piggy back unit.  Go with an ECU out of a turbo car and likely a SAM, shifter and display cluster will also be needed and they will likely all need to come out of the same car.

Regardless which way you go you'll need to retune engine control unit.
