Product information "TTE290 EA211 UPGRADE TURBOCHARGER"


Introducing our TTE290 performance IHI (Hitachi) turbocharger for the popular 1.4TSI EA211 VAG engine. Offering 290PS in testing by partners with correct hardware & software on 102ron, Plug & Play Upgrade with fantastic response and OEM reliability. OEM+ Is the result.

Engineered & Enhanced

TTE290 start life from a brand new Genuine IHI OEM turbocharger, we then dismantle and set about upgrading as Turbo Engineers.
To produce a TTE290 upgrade turbocharger we use a much larger billet compressor wheel, chosen because it is highly efficient and light in weight for fast response. We CNC Re-Profile the compressor cover in-house to an optimized tight tolerance and finish to ensure maximum compressor efficiency is given.  At 1.2 bar 270ps has been proven and 1.5 gives 290ps. 

We CNC re-profile the exhaust turbine housing to optimized profile and gap to take a larger TTE turbine and shaft we use on this stage, this turbine is a higher flow TTE item.  Increasing gas flow and so reducing back pressure and lowering exhaust gas temperatures, allowing safer higher boost levels. 


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 the application at up to 250,000 RPM in multiple planes using our in house VSR machine to acquire the ultimate equilibrium, to a standard far higher than OEM. Each turbocharger is supplied with a serial numbered balance test result document.

  • Original OEM IHI turbocharger as base part

Potential ohne Ende

Ich habe den TTE290 in meinem Golf 7 verbaut und bin komplett begeistert.
Ich fahre mein Auto bei 250PS ohne den Turbo an sein Limit zu bringen.
Die Gesichter der Leute bei dieser Leistung und dem kleinen Motor sind unbezahlbar.

Weiter so Team TheTurboEngineers

I installed the TTE290 in my Golf 7 and am completely thrilled. I drive my car at 250hp without pushing the turbo to its limit. The faces of the people at this power and the small engine are priceless. Keep up the good work Team TheTurboEngineers

The power seems endless

I have this on my stage 3 2017 Jetta SE 1.4, currently running 32 psi….. this turbo is extremely undervalued and underrated. Everybody laughs until the get gapped by the 1.4.
