N54 "GC LITE 2.0" Stock location turbochargers (fits all N54 models)

  • Product Code: VTT-GCLITE-1

WHP Level supported (with proper fuel, upgrades, and tuning) Stock-700WHP

All New design for 2018! We are proud to introduce the latest in our line of N54 turbocharger products the VTT "GC LITE" 2.0 turbochargers. This is a new N54 turbocharger from the ground up, using 100% new parts throughout. Taking a page from our wildly successful GC line of N54 turbos we now off the "GC LITE". This turbocharges uses a high flow 9 blade TD04L turbine coupled with a 16T billet compressor wheel for flow capability of 700WHP. This allows spool faster than anything else on the market, rivaling the spool of stock N54 turbochargers, and comes with massive power potential. If the ultimate driveability is what you are after, without sacrificing top end power. The " GC LITES" are the upgrade for you!

Some of the groundbreaking features are fully new turbocharger from the compressor housing to the bearing housing, to the turbine housing, we had them engineered to fit in the stock N54 location, but provide the full flow of a much larger turbo. Every part on these turbos were designed around our specific goals for power, flow, and reliability. What we ended up with is a turbocharger, that can utilize the stock location while providing enough flow for 700WHP. To do this we increase the area inside not only the manifolds, but also the turbine, and compressor housings, we also slightly increase AR ratio on the turbine housing to free up even more flow, while not giving up anything in spool. To put it bluntly, there is no other 700WHP capable turbocharger option on the market single or twins that can match the spool, ease of fitment, power or reliability of our "GC LITE"  turbochargers!

Upgraded thrust: Every set of stage GC turbos comes with a performance upgraded thrust to extend the life of the turbochargers.


Billet Compressor wheels: 16T Billet compressor wheels are used to maximize flow per shaft revolution


Turbine housing is cast from 22+NB Stainless steel


VTT Inlet, AN/OR Charge pipe bundle. The GC turbochargers work perfectly with our very own VTT 2" inlets, and VTT silicone HOT SIDE charge pipe, and were designed to be used with these pieces. If you already have inlets, or want to use another inlet brand that is no problem, simply do not add them to the drop down. These turbochargers will only work with our silicone charge pipes currently, if you have already purchased one for you stock frame turbos, it can be reused on these if you remove the adapters, simply remove the charge pipe from the options. (Please note, if you remove these options, and do not have these items, you will not be able to install the turbos, as the stock inlets, or charge pipe will not fit the new turbos)


We also offer 2000 degrees ceramic coating for the ultimate it under hood heat reduction, and to help aid in spool! Please choose from the options if you want your turbo coated!


We always suggest the use of an aluminum aftermarket charge pipe, and BOV combo, with upgraded turbos. Add the Phoenix racing CP, and Turbosmart Raceort BOV to your order for just $450! Please see our BOV article for proper installation to avoid compressor surge!


Install package price is for turbo installation ONLY, added parts such as Inlets, fuel system parts, etc will be additional labor.

*Please choose if you need BOV inlets, or DV inlets from the options


*There is NO core charges, but if you want to send us your stock turbos in, we will give back another $150 once you do so!


*3.0% has been added to cover Paypal / Credit card fees

We also always recommend upgrading your PCV valve at the time of turbo upgrade or replacement, as the stock valve can be worn. This means it can stop functioning to its full potential, causing oiling issues with your BMW. This upgraded valve not only replaces the worn stock valve it is also much stronger and will help eliminate any future PCV issues.


Engine oil choice with upgraded turbochargers is a very important aspect for longevity, we only recommend 40W oils and higher, with high Zinc, and Phosphorus content, for high shear strength.
