  • Will this Turbo fit my MK7.5 Facelift GTI?

    Yes, this Turbo is a direct bolt-on and compatible with all Volkswagen MK7 and Audi 8V 1.8T and 2.0T models with no modifications required.


We are excited to announce the release of our new turbo upgrade for the MQB platform!  The new EQT Vortex is a complete bolt-on turbo that is manufactured with all brand new components.  The housings are modeled after the OEM IS38 turbocharger for proper fitment, but they are all brand new and original castings made and machined for the specific wheels we use.  The turbine is a TD06SL2 wheel measuring at 61mm/54mm with an 8cm housing.  The compressor is a custom billet wheel measuring at 53mm/71mm.

The entire turbo is manufactured, assembled, and precision balanced in a state of the art facility.  The EQT Vortex is good for 450whp on pump gas and over 500whp on race gas or E85.  Note that upgraded high pressure and low pressure fuel pumps are recommended to take full advantage of this turbo.

When developing this turbo upgrade, we were aiming for a good balance of response and overall power potential so that the turbo would be a pleasure to drive on the street as well as on track.  As a result, the EQT Vortex offers excellent spool and response throughout the powerband along with a very flat torque curve that carries nearly to redline.  We also sized this turbo to be a perfect match for the stock engine internals and control systems.  The EQT Vortex makes most of its power in the 27-28psi range which allows it to work very well on pump gas and stay within range of the stock MAP sensors.  Check out the dyno chart below which shows the EQT Vortex on 91 Octane and on an E30 blend as well as the same car on the stock IS38 turbo.  The setup on the car remained exactly the same aside from the turbo kit and tuning.  This test car still has the stock cat-back and a catted downpipe, so there is plenty more power to be had!
