Ready to take your FK8 CTR to the next level? Don’t want to deal with core charges, long lead times, or restrictive factory housings? Look no further! VTT has you covered with our 100% new casting “GC” turbocharger upgrade. We start by keeping the great design elements of the factory 2L turbo and removing the not-so-great ones such as the small factory inlet area, bearing housing oil structure, thrust bearing, and anything else we saw that could be improved upon. This is not your basic TD04 CHRA. We completely changed the bearing structure to an 8mm turbine shaft, and journal bearing making it larger than anything in the TD04 MHI family, this truly is a custom unit. We also increased the thrust assembly dramatically to deal with the increased thrust loads. With the basics covered, we stepped it up a level by adding proprietary VTT changes to the housings, and A/R Ratios and finished off by having all these parts cast to OE quality. What this means for you is serious 2.0L power made easy; GCs are a drop-in turbocharger upgrade that supports up to 550WHP while maintaining a very fast spool and all factory connections including oil, water, downpipe, and charge pipe. This turbo is perfect for the FK8 owner looking to max out the factory fuel system and make their CTR more fun to drive with power to redline, as well as the customer looking to add a fuel system and push towards the 550+WHP range. This truly is the unit for everyone. We said the same with our 1.5L SI offering, and have delivered on every promise, due to our no-compromise approach to the upgrade.


  • All new castings with factory restrictions removed. No oversized wheels stuffed into factory housings
  • 310 Stainless Steel Turbine housing for the ultimate in heat, and corrosion resistance
  • 54mm 9 blade Superalloy Mar-M 246 turbine wheel with the latest aero technology for increased flow while maximizing spool
  • 67mm 9 blades “point-milled” compressor wheels with the latest aero technology to maximize flow while virtually eliminating surge
  • Direct connection to ALL factory lines including oil, water, downpipe, and factory charge pipe
  • Reliable 500-550+WHP support with the amazingly fast spool. Same size G25-660 wheel combo we use in many of our BMW Twin Turbo applications making a reliable 1000+WHP with near stock spool levels. –
  • Redesigned turbocharger inlet with a FULL FLOWING 3” hose connection. All units come with an adapter to fit the most popular FK8 inlet kits.
  • Redesigned, and improved internal components including bearing housing oiling, upgraded internal bearing structure to 8mm Turbine shaft, Journal Bearings, and redesigned thrust bearing with larger thrust pieces to take extra thrust loads.
  • Enlarged Wastegate bore to help keep back pressure down, and insure precise boost control
  • NO CORE CHARGES. The new unit is sold to you outright. Keep your old unit in case you ever want to go back to stock. Or sell it to recoup your investment -it’s up to you!


  • Significantly Improved Horsepower Output

Please Note: As with any turbocharger upgrade it should be coupled with complimenting upgrades such as fuel system upgrades, intake, downpipe, intercooler, tune, etc. While you will see gains going from stock turbo to a GC with no other changes, to realize the full potential of the upgrade other parts must be added.
