These turbochargers are fully assembled with a calibrated electronic actuator and ancillary components for direct OEM fitment.

WARNING: Maximum allowable turbocharger speed is 185krpm (Stage 1) | 165krpm (Stage 2). The use of this product above max turbocharger speed is at the owner’s risk, and can result in damage and premature failure.

Speed sensors sold separately.



2014 – 2018 Volkswagen / Audi 2.0L TSI MK7 Stage 1 Turbocharger

Underground Performance out of Australia specializes in tuning and performance for European vehicles. They recently tested the Garrett PowerMax performance drop-in Stage 1 VW / Audi TSI MK7 turbo. See below for the results.

Garrett Powermax Stage 1 GT2260S tested by UGP. A lot of interest has been generated for the smaller of the two Garrett direct-fit turbos for VW/Audi. It’s low price point and great stock replacement potential is too hard to ignore. But does it spool / perform? Thankfully yes, we saw near stock spool against an IS38 and +30kw on top with a flex-tuned Mk7.5 GTI. We chased the maximum safe shaft speed to 185k rpm equaling just under 2 bar on this setup. Underground Performance – Garrett Powermax Stage 1 tuned. 300kw / 575nm at the wheels  402HP / 424ft-lb


2014 – 2018 Volkswagen / Audi 2.0L TSI MK7 Stage 2 Turbocharger
