Simple Design

The simplest turbocharger design is one whose turbine geometry are fixed. With fewer moving parts there is less chance for mechanical failure. Which is why the D13TC simple design makes it the most reliable engine we've ever built.

Last Longer

The D13TC delivers extra horsepower while operating at lower RPM, so there’s less strain on the engine. The fixed geometry turbo is designed to meet the 1.2 million mile B50 life of the engine, with no extra maintenance required.

Shifting Forward

By combining the next generation of I-Shift with the D13TC, you get application-specific solutions that exceed expectations for fuel efficiency, performance and driver productivity.
