VGT Options for Your Cummins ISX Diesel Engine

You've probably seen the term VGT or variable geometry turbocharger thrown around a lot when talking about diesel engines. You've probably heard even more about the problems they cause and money they can cost operators. How it's easier and cheaper just to delete the system.

But just what is a VGT? Does it really cause that many problems? Is it better to delete?

Well, your VGT serves the same purpose as a traditional turbo—it gives your diesel engine more power. But VGTs were created to work along side the new EGR systems so that diesel engines comply with modern emission regulations. 

Instead of having immobile vanes, the vanes on a VGT move as the turbo spins, changing the speed of the air flowing through the turbine. This allows for optimal engine performance. This control of air speed is vital for Diesel Particulate Filter regeneration.

So, should you delete? 

No, you shouldn't. Not only can this cost you more money in fines, you can actually create more failures for your engine. By deleting the EGR system, you're removing pieces of a highly tuned engine, and it suddenly can't operate as it was intended. You can end up paying even more in repairs than replacing your VGT. 

Still worried about the cost of VGTs? We have some great options for you that can help keep costs down!
