Remember just a stg 1 tuned EA288 TDI will make more "usable torque" than an R, a bigger turbo TDI will just move that torque band higher in the RPM range, you still won't win any 1/4 mile trap speeds with a TDI. EA288 and MQB platform is world of difference from a 2004, even if heavily tuned.

For those TSI its all about life above 4,000 RPMS, for a tuned TDI it's between 1,800-3,500.

There is a guy who installed a larger turbo on his '15, i forget if it was the BMW 328d turbo or the exact size, do a search in the power enhancement folder, it seemed he ran into other drive line issues when pushing the limit (lost syncros). There is also a CR190 turbo that has slowly been getting support for tuning without boost creep.
Hers: 2015 Passat SEL (NOS) w/ VW fix and Malone Stage 2 (low torque for DMF shudder).
His: 2017 Alltrack SE, waiting for TSI to TDI conversion kits to be released.
Bought back 2010 Sedan, cog swapper, build date 07/09, BB 6/7/16. 2012 Passat, Roof+Nav, build date 05/12, BB 7/11
