Caterpillar 3208 Solutions This sub-forum is hosted by Mike Hohnstein who has been at this kind of thing for 50+ years now, guess I'm addicted. The saga has been all about progressively larger shop space since then. Honestly, never wanted to get into the CAT 3208's that were originally considered to be a throwaway engine but that's all that works in a FC in my world. Same thing with my Ford toter, that came with a NA, too much effort to hang in a 6, so been at it with the CAT V-8 for 20 years now. In reality you can get excellent life out of a CAT 3208 if it's built correctly. Post your questions about the CAT 3208 engines here and Mike will try to help you out.

Default SP Turbo

Does anyone have any info on the 3208 turbo for a 89SP? Does anyone have an extra laying around unused? Seems I need one. Is the engine used in the 89SP the same engine used in the early FC models? Just curious.

i don't have one,but i think its the same as the 87-89FC with te 300hp engine.
But if you can't find a 300 turbo,just put a 250 on it,it may run better than the 300 turbo.

Thats what he needs,Mike H has a 250hp turbo on his personal coach,with the big CAC and big injectors.
Crits FC had a small genny turbo on it and it was awesome.
I hear that Cat or switzer does not support the 300 tubo anymore.
its not a bad thing to put a 250 on it,call Crit and get it on the way!

Call these guys, they had a cartridge when I needed one. If your housing is ok you can replace the innards. Mine is a 300hp.
This is the company Larry works for, he’s been mentioned on here before.
