Product Description

Direct Bolt on Kit for the 1.9 8v TDI VW Group Engines

  • Increase in performance
  • Will out perform any of the common Hybrid Turbos
  • Maintain economy and drivability
  • Bolt on performance upgrade with no modification needed
  • Multiple turbo options

The Kit is designed to fit the following vehicles: 

VW Golf Mk4
VW Bora
VW Golf Mk5
VW Jetta

The kit will also fit the Mk2 and Mk3 Golf Platform Vehicles with a modified rear engine mount 

The manifold will work with the PD150/PD130/PD105 Turbo Inlet Pipe (TIP) along with a PD150/PD130/PD105 Intake Manifold

 The Downpipe is slightly different dependant on what platform you are fitting the kit to, but all fit into the stock position, so will work with most aftermarket Exhaust Systems, including the Milltek Sport Kits

 This is a true ‘Bolt-On’ Big Turbo conversion that is future proof, as well as being proven to give big power and have perfect daily drivability

Here are just a handful of vehicles with the Turbo Kits fitted:

Stainless Tubular Exhaust Manifold
3” Stainless Downpipe with Stainless 4" Flexi and Dual Fitment Flange
Genuine VW OEM Manifold Gasket
Genuine VW OEM Downpipe Gasket
Darkside Braided Oil Feed Line
Genuine VW OEM Oil Return Line
Genuine VW OEM Oil Return Gasket
Silicone Turbo Inlet Pipe Connector Hose

Stainless Clamps
All other nuts and bolts required for fitment

If you select a Turbocharger, you will also receive the following:

Brand New Garrett GTB Turbocharger with VNT17 Lever Conversion
Brand New Vacuum Actuator
Laser Cut and CNC Folded Stainless Actuator Bracket

 If you are purchasing this kit without a turbocharger, and want to send your turbo to us for converting to Vacuum and the VNT System setting up, please also purchase the service via this product

The only part not included in the kit is a boost outlet pipe. As there are many combinations of intercooler setup, we do not have one definate solution that will suit all builds, normally a 2" silicone 90° bend is all thats required

 There are 3 different models of the GTB Turbocharger. There is the GTB1756VK, GTB2056VK and GTB2260VK. All are completely interchangeable, so if you start with the GTB1756VK and decide to upgrade, all you need to swap is the turbocharger unit itself, all the existing pipework will bolt right up

Here is a rough guide to what sort of power you can expect from each turbo, with a comparison to other popular turbochargers. This is assuming you have the appropriate supporting modifications for the individual turbocharger. The power figures are what is considered achieveable under 'safe' parameters (Injection Duration, Exhaust Gas Temperature and Exhaust Manifold Pressures). Greater power has been achieved in the past with each setup, but in many cases this was pushing many of the components past their safe operating limits

Also as a comparison, here is a table with the various wheel sizes of the popular turbochargers, alongside the GTB Series turbochargers. Bare in mind that the GTB turbos have the latest 3rd Generation VNT System, which is far superior to the previous systems, resulting in quicker spool and lower manifold pressures at high RPMs compared to older 1st Gen Turbo's
