What's up with Variable Geometry Turbochargers in Diesel Engines?

Variable geometry turbos, or VGTs, were designed to work with the new EGR systems, which keep your engine in compliance with the federal emission standards. The VGT is necessary for the Diesel Particulate Filter regeneration process to work properly. The VGT helps to get the exhaust temperature high enough to burn off the accumulation on the filter. 

What makes VGTs unique is in their design. Unlike a traditional turbocharger, VGTs have moving vanes. Some vanes pivot and some slide. These movements affect the speed of the turbine, giving you the best engine performance. 

But more moving parts means a greater opportunity for failure. And that's what we've seen happen a lot with VGTs. Taking into account that replacing a variable geometry turbocharger is usually very expensive, VGTs have gotten a bad rep. But that's not something you have to worry about anymore!


What are Some Issues Associated with VGTs?

We've talked about this a few times in the past. One of the main issues people have with VGTs is the high failure rate and the cost. When we have cores returned, we often see carbon buildup as the source of turbocharger failure. Learn more about this in our blog, Removing Carbon from Diesel Engines

Oftentimes, you'll notice a problem with the whole EGR system. This has been a source of frustration for many operators. Because of federal emission regulations, you're forced to have these systems on your engine, yet they fail constantly, and the repair is almost always expensive. Read our post, Problems with EGR Systems in Diesel Engines, for a deeper look into this issue.

This has led many operators to delete their emission system. But there are penalties associated with this. It's a violation of federal law and can come with hefty fines, among other things. And, if you choose to delete, you're going to have a hard time finding a shop that will work on your diesel engine, because those shops could face penalties for doing so. 

So what can you do, when your options are so bad? Delete your system and face punishment for violating federal regulations, or continue to have to pay hefty repair bills for a system that fails constantly? 

Well, we're pleased to have found a solution to your troubles!
