Have any of you gotten any answer as to what components are going into the updated/newer turbos welded to an ALH or BEW manifold? Like the quite attractive GTD1752VRK? Their sites say things that are quite un-specific, and I have not gotten an answer with the questions submitted directly.
cheers,

It's a BMW OE turbo I believe, unless fitted with a different compressor wheel, welded to a manifold of your choosing. Super responsive turbo, with head-lifting boost available at very low RPM, so tune and build accordingly.

Just to avoid a partial misunderstanding, I am not saying anything bad about these folk, just that I can not discover just exactly what they are offering to sell me.

Garrett makes the turbos. Then some aftermarket performance parts companies are modifying them to work on the older engines.
Garrett made the raw materials, but since their welded TDI GTD costs less than their bare, new OEM 1752 I have to wonder just what exactly it is they are using.

Based on the 2 gottuned turbos I have, they're using old cores. Not sure who manufactures the CHRA. I have probably 40000km on a 17/20 hybrid. The GTB1756VK I have is waiting for the rest of the engine before it gets tested so no driving on it yet. Hope that (partially) answers your question?

I think the quality of MuchBoost hybrids is top. I have their GTB2871VK together with tubular manfold as well. It makes 397HP


Believe me that my Lupo is a real devil now :D

If you have any questions, let`s email Robert from Muchboost. He'll probably answer quickly.

With all due respect, do you really think I would have written this if I got response to multiple emails?

So what is yours built with? new, rebuilt with ___? Not rebuilt?

Hmmm, I spoke multiple times to Robert or Muchboost over the last couple of years, as well as many friends,
and people that I know.
Not a single one had ever issues with contacting them. They are always kind and respond immediately.
Even on times, where normal people are in bed or even sunday / weekends!
Never experienced such a superb costumer support in any business or very seldom.
Have you tried via Instagram or Facebook, if mail doesnt work.
Insta and FB is even faster for contacting / chatting with them.

I have purchased form Robert before when he was at gottuned. Now he runs muchboost . He has been really helpful with questions and concerns when I spoke with him. He would even answer me on FB on weekends. Robert Podlacha is his name.

As for parts used he says the turbochargers are OE and parts used to build them are sourced from suppliers in Europe such as Poland. No China parts are used in his builds.

Hope this helps!
