This upgrade turbo is a modified hybrid that is a direct bolt-in replacement for the Garrett GT-15 and Borg Warner (KKK) K-03 wastegated turbos found in the Passats and Jettas from 1996-1999. With proper nozzles installed and chip tuning, this unit will reliably produce up to 165 HP in those cars. We have seen increases of 15 hp just from upgrading to this turbo.
This turbo is built from brand new K03 and K04 components. There is no core deposit required.
This Turbo Includes all the necessary gaskets for install
Install Kit Includes:
KermaTDI turbos, are warranted by manufacturer against manufacturing defects for 12 months/12K miles.
We have seen bargain turbos that just aren't worth ordering.... many use inferior turbo builders and parts or are knockoffs. We only sell genuine top quality name brand turbos.
Please note: Our stainless oil supply line does not fit the 96 Passat.
Boost is on almost immediately compared to stock. I already had intake, nozzles, and chip and was just waiting for an excuse to try this combo. What seems like endless amounts of power while still staying under 2000RPM with almost instant boost moving between the gears. Unknown on 14th Feb 2017
I noticed good improvement in my car after installing this turbo. I have dlc 764 nozzles and this turbo clears those up just fine. No tunes yet, but the car is quicker than it was before. Unknown on 9th Jan 2016
