LO380L 2.0 / 1.8 TFSI Upgrade Sport Turbocharger

LOBA 2.0 / 1.8 TFSI LO380L Upgrade Sport Turbocharger 

LOBA are proud to present the ultimate and first Plug & Play OEM+ Upgrade Sport Turbocharger for the Audi range of longitudinal 1.8 or 2.0 TFSI vehicles fitting as the OE turbocharger. Based on our famous LO400 unit for the transverse 2.0 TFSI.

We utilize a brand new factory BorgWarner K04 turbocharger and optimize with 5-Axis CNC machine, modifying the compressor housing and inner surface, removing the OE baffle and fitting a LOBA CNC billet boost pipe for maximum flow. 5-axis CNC modify the turbine housing to reduce exhaust gas back pressure and maximize throughput to increase output.

At the heart of our LO380L is the latest state of the art, bigger more efficient LOBA Motorsport billet compressor LO-2580, unique in design, geometry and size, but is extremely light in weight, yet still very strong. LOBA Motorsport billet compressor wheels are 25% lighter than some original used cast items and lighter then OE billet types, but still has greater strength and durability over a cast compressor. This combination gives ultimate turbo response and efficiency with reliability. We also grind and lighten the turbine runner for increased flow and cnc modify the exhaust turbine housing to reduce exhaust backpressure.

We precision balance the turbine wheel/shaft and compressor wheel to far beyond oem tolerance as single parts, first to less than 0,05gmm then together. Last but not least is we modify the actuator and use a reinforced uprated turbo bearing for durability. It has a greater bearing contact face to withstand the high loads that would destroy a standard bearing.

Depending on engine management settings, engine condition and other components utilized this turbo is capable of producing massive gains over stock, 380PS and more can be achieved.

Included in the upgrade is all the gaskets, studs/nuts and seals required to mount the unit to vehicle.

The following LOBA specific optimizations were applied

  • LOBA “Extended Tip” state-of-the-art billet compressor wheel 
  • LOBA 5-axis CNC re-profiled compressor housing and backplate
  • LOBA clipped turbine wheel
  • LOBA Optimized clearances
  • LOBA Modified actuator
  • LOBA Uprated bearing system 
  • LOBA Superior Balancing
  • Made in Germany
  • Fits exactly as a OE K03 or IHI  Plug & Play

The LOBA LO380L turbocharger is the best compromise between high power output, turbo response and longevity.
