Hello All,

First post here! I am having a hard time to pick a turbo for my Fabia VRS 1.9 TDI BLT. Atm i have 1752 with decat and 51 mm txautosport cooler. Here is what i have planned for the car:
Nozzles - WZM100%
Downpipe + exaust - 63 mm
Dbilas 272 degree cam
Sachs ZF performance clutch.

I am hesitating between gtb2060vklr and gtd2060vz. Either turbo will from PowerTDI poland. I am reading a lot of info that the GTD spools better, but is this really true? Has someone placed a graph side-by-side, because i was not able to find such.

Would appreciate any inputs.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

George

vklr spools better, the v6 is a journal bearing type of turbo and spools better than a 2260vk but not as fast as vklr. Personally I like the simplicity of journal bearing turbos, on the vklr you pop a boost hose it’s bye-bye turbo !

Hey, thanks for joining in, i believe so, but a lot of people in few Facebook groups claim the opposite - gtd spools better than vklr and this is my daily driver, so the spool is also key here :)
