Anyone with a VL36 turbo?

has anyone had any problems running this turbo on a T Jet? Really want to buy one but put off in case It messes my car up and creates a bigger spend for me..

The only problem I could think is over heating the engine but ive got a forge intercooler so don't see why that would be a problem.

Any feed back is appreciated cheers.

Also does it need a new manifold with it?

They are a straight swap for the standard turbo. It wont cause any problems but would need a remap to get the most out of

If you switch to the bigger one, some Bravo's (120Tjets to a 150Tjet Turbo) have had issues with the areas of loss of power, I think there is more to run the turbo at full capacity required. Seems to be a pattern if you map it too hard it wont be effective.

I have a vl36 turbo on my t-jet with FMIC, Panel filter and a TMC Tuning Box. No issues whatsoever, definitely no overheating problems. When changing it just keep the same manifold and swap them over, very easy swap.

I run the vl38 turbo off the abarth 500 which is the same size as the vl36 with Powerflow cat-back, Bmc panel filter and Forge turbo actuator also mapped at tune4performance for 13k miles with no problems. Got forge intercooler as well but yet to fit it
