Big GT1856v hybrid turbocharger. This is the biggest bolt on hybrid we do before GTB turbos. Based on stock unit fitted with GT18 turbine wheel, large GT2052v compressor housing machined to accommodate the large 56mm GTX style CNC cut performance billet compressor wheel. Doesn't offer the best spool but makes the numbers with very few modifications required to fit. 2.5" downpipe, hard pipe kit and straight through/uprated exhaust are recommended for the best results we are yet to see what would it make with uprated injectors!
Compressor wheel colour and compressor housing origin may change but still going to be the same size.
230bhp+ power potential depending on supporting mod

GTB2056 would definitely be a nice turbo to try I love the GTB turbos the way they spool is nice, but the downside is doing other things to accommodate this turbo to the alh downpipe, exhaust inlet outlet pipes and so on,, trying to stay away from all that pain of gathering parts to fit this sucker in,,,

But now after reading from you guys that GT1856 has a lot of lag, I am leaning more towards GT1756,,, having in the past 1752 and getting 220hp out of it, I'm sure that I could probably get 230-240hp with this turbo pushing its limit probably has its choking points with high egts like the 1722 but it is plug and play and that is a plus for me,,, and I defnitly will have supporting mods to go along with it,, I am all ears from anybody using this turbo on a 1.9 tdi, pls share your experience Id really appreciate it.

Pls if someone has had a bad experience with Xman and his turbo pls let me know I may be going his way to get a turbo thxs ahead

i got a 1756 ready to fit mate. after being in several cars with them fitted and seem several dynos with them making just over 240bhp and in area of 380lbs on stock injectors. my next stop will be a gtb2056vk and +80 but i think the gt1756 will do just nicely for now..

x man turbos are ok., i ran 33psi peak onj one of his billet pd150 hybriods for over 30.000m ..the vnt will not be set right but that dosnt take long to do yourself in for have VAG.com. ive seen x-man gt1756mfs do 247 bhp @2.1 bar before on bigfish's dyno on stock nozzles

but for a few quid more you could go with TRP, they do same hybrid with 11 blade wheel and units are of bit better quality .. look nicer lol)and vnt set up ready.. those 2 would be my choice for decant well priced bolt ons
trp performance and ask about their trp1756, is about 675 quid to x man 600.. added bonus of trp is they are a tuning company and are very good at it to.

i have turbo dynamic model myself but only as i chance to pick it up for less than 3rd of new price and never been fitted all reciepts ect . they bluebrinted to motorsport spec but cost about 1300 quid new.. trp and x man are about half that

you're making an extra 60hp that you'll never see just trying to force the exhaust through the tiny little turbine

ETA: that, or you're trying to make 600+ n/m, limit torque and let it breathe

I've been in contact with friends from the othe other side of the pond and they all said that 18/56 it's laggy , i believe it's the same gt17/22 bored out for 18/56, but they are suggesting that if you want a better turbo it would be gtb2056vk they say spool better than 18/56

Yes, the GTB is better... But not directly plug and play or they would have been the first things ppl suggested. That or the smaller GTC and GTD depending on HP goals.

If you've got the dough, dark side makes a bolt on kit, but GTBs are not plug and play without it....
