This is the 5th Generation VNT System which is far superior to the previous systems. This results in quicker spool, lower manifold pressures at high RPMs and the capabilities of running higher EGT's compared to older Gen Turbo's.

 The Kit is designed to fit the following vehicles: 

VW Polo 9N/9N2/9N3
Seat Ibiza Mk4
Seat Cordobra
Skoda Fabia Mk1

For the below vehicles we would need a car in the workshop to develop a downpipe

Here is a comparison of the various wheel sizes of the popular turbochargers, alongside the GTB and GTD Series turbochargers. Bare in mind that the GTD turbos have the latest 5th 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 Gen Turbo's


Above is also 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 achievable 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
