    Looking for an original IS20 upgrade charger providing as twice as much HP than original because the DSG, Haldex and engine can cope with about 450HP easily. Some upgrade companies provide good big IS38 chargers (TTE, TTH, PnP, Loba, etc.). I am interested in an IS20 originally looking charger. What about this PnP LM440 (IS20) put into a bigger SEAT. Worth the money?

    I think some might argue about the S1 engine easily coping with 450bhp ;)

    Also the S1's don't have DSG so that at least is one less worry :)

    Maybe you should contact Littco, he supplies upgrade IS20 and IS38 turbos

    I thought a hybrid turbo would be required at 450bhp?

    Going by Littco's facebook posts he is going to stop selling the hybrid IS20s, he has one last one for sale now.

    Yes, Littco's hybrid turbos were a very good idea but they broke apart because it still had the poor original IHI bearing and cartridge. Making a hybrid turbo stable means to fully remove ALL IHI internals of the turbo (cartridge, Bearing, mounting, wheels, axis, BOTH wheels, etc. ) and integrate a different basic unit. I will make a test drive with the PnP LM440 - it seems to have all internals replaced so it is race-proof. We will see.

    This remap got done by www.TIJ-Power.com (it is actally MTR Performance) - this is said in the video. But they say that all tuners can do the remap of the PnP LM... turbo chargers.

    Ive head the IS20 upgrades are not very reliable, you would be better off with just bolting in an IS38 Hybrid. Im planning stage 3 atm i just need to get the turbo and a map over the stage 2 revo

    There are some G7GTI, Cupras and Audi S1 driving around with the PnP LM chargers.

    Yes, there is a video about the PnP LM440 IS20 version and LM440 IS38 version for Audi S1/S3/Golf MK7. Each charger has got its advantages:
