The VL36 turbocharger comes from the TJET150 engine. It is a very popular upgrade for the 120hp engine owners, because it is a direct exchange over the stock unit.
This car also had an upgraded downpipe, slightly larger injectors (although they are not needed for this power level) and cams from the naturally aspirated 1.4i. One of the bottlenecks in making power is the stock exhaust. Even so, after tuning it produced very good power on dyno.
