Freaking awesome

I have a 2018 GTI MK7.5 I was completely stock. I went straight for stage 3 Garrett GT2260s turbo I bought it about 6 months back I am running a 93 tune including their intercooler and air intake The power feels amazing our power you will say fourth gear and off feels insane. But it doesn’t like in first or second or third. It’s still pretty fast and it pulls like a free train. I’ve been not having any issues or problems at all with the turbo it sounds amazing .

Turbo

The new turbo and tune are incredible. The power is liner and pulls all the way to redline. It’s night and day from the IS20.

Buy this today!

Just finished the install, took about 9 hours or so but worth every penny. I have a GTI that I upgraded to the IS38 and now the 2260. The power and torque are night and day, much more significant boost curve and timing all the way to redline!

Skip the IS38, Get this

No, this isn't as easy to install as an OEM IS38 or clone.

but this turbo sounds amazing and makes any mk7/mk7.5 a weapon
