Most TSI122 engines and specially CAX variants can receive the TSI160 turbo kit upgrade. This allows them to produce power like their CAV engine counterparts, without the complexity of needing a supercharger system. This comes at a small sacrifice of torque in the very low rpm range, up to 2500rpm. And a big gain of power at mid and high rpm after that.
In terms of reliability, the engine can withstand the abuse and the turbo is an OEM unit.
