Buying GTB2060VKLR is a good choice I recommend upgrading ,internals as well as SMIC to FMIC, from there you can go safely to others mods,I'd think stepping it up to this level these 2 mods are a must, next I'd look at clutch and tranny, but it all depend how you drive your car too,

I've never seen a (GTD)2060VKLR as mentioned here.

Internals meaning Rods

It's what's on the later 3.0TDIs and has an odd dual entry into the turbine. So, for these applications, I imagine the turbine housing is changing back to something more familiar with single entry while being able to maintain the 5th gen VNT system.

I'll go ahead and mention that the 2260vklr is very nice. I think anyone's perception of a larger turbo has everything to do with their driving style and/or expectations. I don't think it's laggy at all, but that's once you're at proper revs. Even around town though, there's enough response for my driving style and once you're above 2k RPM it's game over

speaking from one of the few gtb2056vk's under the hood if I did it over again wouldn't hesitate to go 2260 just gotta rev little higher in shifts. not even sure the 2056's you can get anymore. better be ready to fork out some dough gets expensive quick....

I have both. I still prefer the 2060 for overall city driving and the best mileage.(between those two)

That's great to hear. If you don't mind me asking...who did you end up buying the GTB2060VKLR from?

If 200 whp is your goal, then I would recommend installing a set of +50% Firad nozzles on your factory injectors. Those nozzles are rated for 260 bhp, which is equal to about 220 whp. (Wheel Horsepower)=whp and (Brake Horsepower) =bhp in case you were wondering.

Well I ended up going with a got tuned one due to trying to finance a lot in a little time, (during the apocalypse, no less) I have 2 Tdis though and once I finish and get paid for a few jobs I壇 like to use pioneers manifold and build a something else. I知 gonna pm you More ans shoot the ****. Or text me? Since pd injectors are arguably expensive (mounted and setup) should I get +80 or +100 and have tuned down in case I get stupid in the future and go bigger? Lol

ON their website they state "The turbo is meant to work with ~280HP, boost 34PSI. In order to reach that level of power you need to adjust your fuel, exhaust and cooling systems as well" Who are you having do the tune?

Gotcha. Hey sometimes you have to go with what you can afford, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic that's leaving a lot of people short on funds.

Oh, I didn't realize that you had a 2nd TDI... is that one also have a PD engine in it? Or is it an earlier MKIV TDI from 1999.5-2003?

Yeah, PMs or Facebook messenger work best for me. If you prefer FB Messenger, just send me a PM with either a link to your FB page or your name, so I can track you down.

I hear you on PD injectors/nozzles being pretty pricey compared to VE injectors/nozzles. I wouldn't go any larger than the +80% nozzles for your GTB2060VKLR, since those are rated for 300 bhp or 260 whp and that's about the limit for your GTB2060VKLR anyway.
