TTE350 for the 1.8T begins as a brand new standard Genuine BorgWarner K04-064 turbocharger taken from the 2.0tfsi platform, TTE then proceeds to dismantle and CNC modify for fitment for the 1.8T VAG platform so does not require adaption spacer plate others are using. Comes with CNC Exhaust manifold mounting adaptation hardware.
Precisely balancing our turbochargers is a key critical factor to become a TTE upgrade unit as longevity and performance are paramount. Good balance improves acoustics also. Subsequent great care is taken with all TTE turbochargers to achieving our balance standards. Firstly parts are balanced at slow speeds up to 2800RPM in multiple planes using our single parts machine, then components are assembled and then the CHRA are dynamically balanced, but this time depending on application at up to 250,000 RPM in multiple planes using TTE's in house VSR machine to acquire the ultimate equilibrium, to a standard far higher than OEM. Each turbocharger is supplied with serial numbered balance test result document.
