Diesel Power Magazine DYNO with S7 Turbo and DLC1019 nozzles


  Our Exclusive Package includes:

-Brand new Garrett 17/49VB (VNT 17) turbocharger Or add the S7 Turbo from Borg Warner for even more Low end torque (spools about 400RPMs sooner than VNT17)  We've found these to be about the very best all-around upgraded turbos for daily drivers. Easily supports the requirements of DLC or PowerPlus Nozzles, with reduced turbo lag. Keep your TDI goodness, amplified! "Just like a TDI, only better"

-Kerma exclusive plug-n-play turbo adapter for ALH  (A KERMA exclusive!)

-Complete turbo gasket/hardware install kit

-Kerma exclusive braided stainless steel turbo oil supply line - A KERMA exclusive! So much easier to work with than the clunky, fragile, stock hardline.

-Fratelli Bosio DLC 1019 injector nozzles. Or DLC764 Nozzles for even more power (1019s will give you a few more MPGs over the DLC764s) Our brand new nozzle with a 5 year unlimited mileage warranty.

Injector calibration service with an available hotswap option


This kit price reflects the cost of the Automatic transmission. Clutch options are an additional cost and there are a few choices to choose from

-South Bend Stage 2 Daily clutch kit SILENT DESIGN!! (including 22lb single mass flywheel and transmission stretch bolts, normally an extra-cost option, included, for extra savings when you buy as part of the kit)

The older "quiet" clutches are superseded by this completely new design, making rattling clutches a compromise of the past. The only Single mass (solid) flywheel kit on the market able to hold the torque from the kit... and does it while remaining as unobtrusive as the stock clutch. Forget about clutch noise as a thing of the past. Absolutely silent design, with no rattling whatsoever.  
[this is a new revision direct from Southbend with a new friction plate design released March 15, 2012 -- accept no substitutes !]

Also available are the South Bend Stage 2 Endurance and Stage 3 Daily if you enjoy a bit more aggressive clutch!!

-Gator Juice

-Kerma custom chiptuning; features tighter boost control than any competing tuner for unsurpassed drivability, turbo lifespan, and reliability, right out of the box. Forget about endless data logging and needless retunes in the name of custom tuning, our ECU calibration for this package is well engineered and proven to work well the first time, every time, with no boost valve required. The result is more power and torque, less smoke, and lower EGT than you will find anywhere with a similar (or much more expensive) combination of parts. We know what works best in these cars and the results speak for themselves. 

We depart from common practice, in that we don't believe that "staged" tunes are appropriate. Every customer should get the perfect tune for their equipment configuration regardless of what they pay.  (and we provide free updates for new equipment purchased from us). Our ECU calibrations are individually personalized by the kerma tuning department to best use each particular car's modifications.  (But if you must...Compare the tune in this kit with "stage 5+ custom" or similar you may find elsewhere.) No drama, perfect reliability, and better than factory response with amazing power. We really have this kit dialed in, and it shows.

-Q PRO+ tuning appliance, allows easy updates, with the fastest turnaround in the industry, should you decide to build your car even bigger in the future! (early ALH 98-99 does not include a Q-loader, but requires shipping your ECU to us for reprogramming. We can sometimes accommodate a core exchange with a deposit to minimize downtime, contact us for details.)

This package offers a significant saving over the sum of the individual parts. Because of manufacturers' minimum advertised price policies, please add the appropriate options to your shopping cart to see the combo discount. Every last part you need is included... don't be fooled by other kits that end up costing much more for the same result.

Take advantage of our special pricing, earn that red 'TDI' badge, and enjoy great ECONOMY, and LONGEVITY, available for an additional $75. (purchase the ALH Turbo Retrofit Kit if you have an early ALH)

-the above Kerma Power Plus 165whp Package is tailored to the ALH engine.
