This turbo kit can also be used with the 4x4 vehicles as we now hade a downpipe to fit

Stainless Tubular Exhaust Manifold With Billet Collector
3” Stainless Downpipe with Stainless 6" Flexi and Dual Fitment Flange
Genuine VW OEM Manifold Gasket
Genuine VW OEM Downpipe Gasket
Darkside Braided Oil Feed Line
Darkside Oil Return Line
Genuine VW OEM Oil Return Gasket
Silicone Turbo Inlet Pipe Connector Hose

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 with Electronic Actuator
Laser Cut and CNC Folded Stainless Actuator Bracket

 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



PLEASE NOTE - Whilst this kit places the Turbocharger in the stock position, due the the wide differences in the various Common Rail Engine Codes, there may be extra modifications required or parts needed to fit to the stock Intake and Intercooler Systems
