One can put 51/49 turbine, and wider vnt ring/cage from 2260. (Requires a bit of machining but not undoable). Then put compressor of choice. Something like 50/65
If you sell the 2060 and start from 2260 vklr its a bit easier.
I think it is worth trying with gap piston ring , seems to be a much better choice than standard piston ring .Sure it can be made to fit. I ran these turbos since over 2 years, although with mixed results in terms of oil sealing on the turbine side. But nonetheless roller or journal bearing. The oil sealing has always been bit tricky with the 51/49 wheel. Although if your lucky and it works, it works pretty damn good.
Sure strandard journal bearing are more simple .If they dont leak oil onto the exhaust yep its a better choice.
I still think the journal bearing vk or vzk is less trouble. Simple and reliable.
It would be best to go with a more modern turbo and at the minimum, I'd go with either a GTB1756VK or GTB2260VK depending on what mods you have done to your TDI.Hello guys. Need an opinion. I need a bigger turbo for 1.9tdi. Is it a bad choice gt2260v from bmw e60/e90? Is it too old, and maybe more laggy than gtb1756/gtb2260 ( audi or bmw). Thanks!
LP is making 25 PSI, HP bumps that up to 45What PR is your LPT pushing ?
And how many milles did your HPT last ?

IMO, I'd go with the most current turbo you can buy for the best performance you can get out of a turbo and that would mean going with either a GTD1752VRK/GTD1756VRK or the larger GTD2060VZK.
Here are a few GTD1752VRK/GTD1756VRK options:
If you wanna upgrade to a GTD2060VZ, it will require quite a bit of customization to make it work on a 1.9L TDI.
Yes same wheel size for 210 version, only difference is the rpm sensor.same comp iducer this 210hp verson? plenty power for 37mm...
Unfortenately integrated, here's a better photo:TDIMeister said:Still slightly bigger than the BMW's 36mm, so that's good. Can't yet tell from pictures online whether it is integrated with the exhaust manifold or separate.
And here is result of this turbo on 1.9TDI, need to do some work to get stable boost.So information about turbo
