D282 Question

Recommended Posts

Can a D282 handle a turbo and how many pounds does it take to blow the head gasket? I need to settle a debate.

I dont know how many psi to pop the gasket, but IH put turbos on the 282. We have one in a 656 out of a TD-9 B.

Mine puts out no more than 5psi and people are saying that's why I'm having gasket issues.

KK, I have two DT282's in Ag crawlers, neither have ever blown a head gasket, they constantly run at 4 to 5 psi, I have seen as high as 9 psi under certain load conditions.
