Our new GTD2872VRK (Vacuum) is the ultimate Turbo choice for the all the 1.9 & 2.0 TDI Engines!

This is turbo is based on the BMW V-Band Housings so a custom / suitable manifold and piping will be required. We also this this same turbo in Audi Housings see here:

This turbocharger is also the replacement for the now discontinued GTB2566VK

Although the upgrade sounds an extreme step up from the GTB2260VK the latest (Generation 5) GTD VNT System, Ball Bearings and Wheel Designs will out preform and spool similar to the previous GTB2566VK

Converted to Vacuum Actuator using a Short VNT17 Lever and supplied with Brand New Vacuum Actuator and Adjustable Laser Cut & CNC Folded Stainless Actuator Bracket


Our GTD2872VRK Hybrid offers the largest wheels that can be fitted into the GTB2260VK shell and work effectively

This is the same size turbo used on our Seat Arosa and proven to produce over 400bhp (Without Nos) and over 500bhp (With Nos) with the right supporting modifications. 


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

Please include in the notes section what vehicle and manifold the turbocharger will be fitted with. We will the orientate the turbo correctly to suit your needs
Please Note: The rotation of the turbine housing cannot be changed once we have set up the turbo 

We also produce Turbo Kits for several VAG TDI Models that allow these turbochargers to bolt directly onto your Engine with minimal modifications -

Lead Time
Please expect around a 6 week lead time on these turbochargers unless otherwise discussed~
